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.
We have a little puppy called Lola.
We're early risers, normally around 7am.
For guests catching an early flight from Shannon we're happy to make a sandwich with coffee/tea to go : )
No smoking in house but smokers very welcome.
We had a lovely stay with Brian and Martha. They made us feel very welcome on arrival with a cup of tea and the room was warm, comfortable and clean. In the morning we received a beautiful breakfast. We would highly recommend staying with them.
Brian and Marta were wonderful hosts! The night I spent with them was my very first night in Ireland, and I couldn't have asked for a warmer welcome. I was pretty tired and frazzled when I arrived. Brian and his little daughter Irene welcomed me with tea. When it came out that I hadn't had dinner, Brian invited me to join him and Irene in their family dinner.
The bedroom and bed are extremely comfy and warm, even on a chilly, rainy night.
In the morning Marta made me a delicious breakfast of poached eggs and the BEST homemade bread, baked by Brian. They let me hang out throughout the morning as I did a little bit of work.
A couple of other highlights: throughout the house you'll see some of Brian's very cool art/wood work. The view out the living room window is really, really beautiful.
The family was wonderful, the bed was supper comfortable, and they made us a nice tasty breakfast!
We had a wonderful stay with Brian, Marta and their adorable little girl. Their home is filled with art, love, and music. We felt so welcomed. We loved Ennis and hope to return some day.
My gf and I had a fantastic time staying with Brian, Marta and their endlessly cute daughter. The house is very cosy and is the perfect vantage point for the best views in the greater Ennis area. Brian is very well versed on both local and regional attractions, things to see and do and a talented conversationalist. Also be sure to have a look skywards at night as the stars are stunning. I would definitely return again for another stay.
Very welcoming, everything to high standard and an incredible breakfast prepared. They were very welcoming even with family emergency going on which was really appreciated and would definitely reccomend.
Location was beautiful once seen in morning because wee arrived so late.
Vera and I were truly grateful for the warmth of the welcome offered by Brian and Marta. And, the warmth was all the better given the time of our late arrival on the first night! We went on to spend four nights with Brian and Marta - an absolutely delightful and extremely talented couple. They could not have been more helpful - offering lots of great ideas on where to go, what to see and where and what to eat! Should we ever be fortunate enough to return to Ennis we would not hesitate to contact Brian and Marta. Many thanks to them for contributing to a wonderful weekend in a beautiful town!
