We do a really good breakfast.
Excellent fresh coffee and tea, granola, cereal, fresh fruit, yoghurt, home made brown bread (most days), preserves, orange juice, fresh free range organic eggs from our own laying hens.
No smoking in house but smokers very welcome.
Brian is an awesome host. The place was wonderful, and the breakfast is not to be missed. We had a wonderful conversation over tea the night we arrived and he gave us some good recommendations for the area. I would stay again.
Brian was a great host. He offered us tea on our arrival and the nettle tea (picked from his yard) was just right! The house was cozy and his various eco-adaptations provided lots of opportunities for conversation. The area around his house was great for walks and for fabulous views. It is near a ridgetop and the sweeping views were breathtaking. Thanks to Brian for a perfect place for us as we explored the fairly nearby Cliffs of Moher and took in wonderful trad music in Ennis.
Brian and Marta have a very nice home tucked away on a hill in the country not too far from town.
Brian nous a permis d'arriver chez lui alors qu'il était absent, il nous avait au préalable expliqué comment trouver sa maison. Il avait laissé les lumières allumées pour nous aider à nous repérer. Brian nous a accueilli très chaleureusement; il nous a préparé de délicieux petits déjeuners avec les œufs tout frais de ses poules et nous avons beaucoup échangé autour de l'Irlande. La maison est un havre de paix niché dans les hauteurs en pleine campagne et cependant très proche d'Ennis. La maison est confortable, la chambre et la salle de bains conformes au descriptif. Nous ne manquerons pas d'y retourner si nous repassons par Ennis ...
This was my first experience guesting with a family in their private home. All was exactly as described, and our two hosts couldn't have been more welcoming! The easy conversation and fine hospitality were both highly enjoyable. The rural setting was picturesque and the fabulous breakfast included farm fresh eggs from their own hens! Through a happy coincidence, we met their prior evening's guest at a musical concert and in his company after the concert, we visited several pubs offering excellent live music. It was a lovely stay!!
L'accueil a ete tres bien et la chambre correspond bien a ce qui est annoncé . J'ai pu apprcié ma discussion avec Brian sur son métier .
Le petit dejener etait tres bien et j'ai apprécié les efforts de toute la famille pour faciliter le calme dans la maison
My husband and I had a lovely stay with Brian and his family. They made us feel like part of the family. The location was great - outside of town with a great view and easy to find. Room was really comfy and ever so quiet - we slept in which is unheard of for us. Great Air B and B experience.
