It's a nice place with a lot of atmosphere and Tim and his wife are very helpful. They gave us a lot of Information about where to eat and where to go in town. There was also a wide joice of breakfast dishes prepared at our demand. Our room was clean but the carpet and furniture showed their age. A refurbishment wouldn' t be out of place. The biggest drawback were the thin walls. So if you don't want to partake in your next door neighbours' nocturnal activities you better bring a set of earplugs.

Upon entering the front door I was greeted with a friendly 'hello' by Tom and his wife. My drive had been a long one that day and I really appreciated the warm welcome, the clean room and comfortable bed. I stayed 2 days and enjoyed a tasty full breakfast in the bright dining area. Thank you Tim for our lovely conversations and input on my travels.

The breakfast rooms are beautiful and cozy! The breakfast itself was very delicious and filling which is necessary for an active day. The bedrooms were clean and comfortable, everything that a person would need after an active day. Upon departure, the hosts helped us locate a bus to the airport which saved us much trouble!

After a bit of trouble to find the right place, as there are 2 roads with the same name in Dundalk, I really enjoyed my stay. I was in a huge room, ensuite, with a complimentory tea and coffee set, which was really nice after my day. The irish breakfast was good and enjoyable.
