Mike & Julia were so gracious and hilarious! They work together in a very friendly way, and make you feel at home--without overcrowding. The property is beautiful and the walk to the nearby restaurants and pub is similarly gorgeous. Our stay happened over my birthday and Julia corresponded with my mother (in the states) to make the night unforgettable! Plus, they accept (and love) dogs!
Went to Carbery Cottage to write and walk, it was absolutely perfect for this. I was only distracted by the fabulous ducks and chickens that wander around. Two fantastic pubs are close by so also managed to have some nice food and some Beamish. But it was the welcome of Mike and Julia that is really worth remembering. They run a wonderful B&B where you will feel at home and welcomed.
