We really enjoyed our stay at Amanda's house. She took care of us very well. The room and bathroom are pleasant and the house is really nice. Speaking with Amanda and his family was very interesting. The breakfast was delicious : specially the awesome fried bread ;) We recommand to stay at Amanda's house !
I was given a lovely welcome to Amanda's home and enjoyed talking with her and her (grown up) children. The bed was comfy, the breakfast was extremely good, the dogs were sweet, and the grand piano was amazing. It's a beautiful Georgian house, with a super-comfy bed and a lovely bathroom.
amanda was very nice and helped me with the planning of the tour. I can only confirm the positive reviews of other guests. I will definitely stay here a second time to ireland :)
The host was excellent and made me feel very welcome . Everything was organised and the breakfast delicious.
The bedroom was perfect and bathroom close by.

We really cannot say enough about how much we've enjoyed our stay here, from the lovely and quiet location, the warm welcome we got, not just from them, but also from their lovely dogs, the beautiful home, charming and really comfy bedroom, the great advice on planning our journey onwards to the amazing fresh fruit breakfast smoothie and home made jam we had for breakfast (definitely ask her for a jar of jam!!).
