I couldn’t recommend this house highly enough. It is a rare gem of a place, full of art and history and style. The joint is beautifully furnished and the artwork, that of the American absentee owner, is intriguing and itself reflective of the area and the Irish situation more generally. The house sits in a quiet location on the edge of an escarpment with long views over flat lands to the East with the slopes of the Devil’s Bite Mountain rising behind to the West. Its most distinctive feature is a huge stone tower which is the restored remains of a mediaeval castle which guests are free to explore. This includes the original (and steep) stairway. The three bedrooms are each exquisite. The broadband connection works a treat. The kitchen was great to cook and eat in. The guardians, Denise and Siósamh (Joseph), were the epitome of Irish charm and hospitality. We were in the region researching family history and they went out of their way to aid our quest and share their extensive knowledge of Irish culture, both ancient and modern. In a land where, unfortunately, much rural domestic architecture is not so easy on the eye, it was a delight to stay somewhere so in harmony with its surroundings and reasonably priced to boot. Bravo Killea!
