We were greeted warmly and our room was ready when we arrived. Our questions were answered and we felt quite comfortable in the neighborhood.
Lillian and Dominic were lovely, friendly and very welcoming hosts. I stayed during the off season whilst motorcycle touring around southern Ireland and we spent the evening chatting away in front of the fire in their very comfy living room/dining room as if we'd known each other for years! I'm planning on taking my friends back there next year and would love to visit again. The garden is lovely, the rooms comfy, the wifi good and the food good too. You should try the muffins for breakfast!
Lillian was a wonderful hostess. I was made to feel right at home & was welcomed with a warm cup of tea. Dominic gave excellent above on what to see in the area, too. The breakfasts were delicious and the room was just perfect. Thank you!
