We have just returned from a lovely stay at the griffin guest house. Our room was spotlessly clean and furnished perfectly. Chris and Keiran were great hosts and extremely helpful. The breakfasts were truly amazing. We will most certainly return.

Thank you Kieran, Chris and the family for a wonderful stay. We were made to feel welcome and part of the family. Clean rooms, very comfortable beds, tasty food and the terrace was an oasis in the middle of a concrete jungle! We will definitely return.
