I had a GREAT time staying at Tara's!!! The whole property is gorgeous, serene, wonderful. I don't have enough words to express how perfect I found it. I had my own space and freedom combined with the warmth of open arms a great cup of tea. I highly recommend everyone to stay with Tara, and explore the wonderful village of Durrow. I can't wait to go back again.
We really enjoyed our stay at Tara's mill. It was a lovely relaxing break from city life. We felt very welcome and Tara was very helpful with suggestions of things to do in the area.
We had a fabulous time at Tara's b&b ......even though we only stayed one night..... The main house, self contained unit, mill and gardens are absolutely awesome. Tara was the perfect host and very interesting to talk to,she gave us heaps of advice on what to do and where to go, and fed us a beautiful breakfast. The unit is clean,comfortable and warm AND the muffins were YUMMMMM thanks Tara. Walking around the gardens with the dogs was fun. An amazing place to stay, I would absolutely recommend Tara's place to anyone who wants a stay in the countryside
