  • Très bon souvenir de notre visite chez Geraldine! La chambre est propre, au calme et l'accueil est sympathique! Geraldine a pris le soin de téléphoner au restaurant pour vérifier s'il était possible d'y diner, et nous y a conduit! Parfait arret pour visiter un peu the "achill islands" qui méritent le détour!
