Quiet location, lovely grounds, spacious room, good Irish breakfasts made to order, best of all, Kathleen, the owner who is gracious and helpful to some stressed out road weary tourists not used to driving on the left!

Kathleen is a life force of incredible intensity. Irish hospitality is generally excellent, but Kathleen's warmth and attention to detail make for a marvellous experience. We arrived without a booking on a Friday afternoon. Not only was Kathleen's house full, but everywhere around too. She spent ages phoning people near and far, and found us a bed for the night....

We were greeted by Kathleen who took the time to find out our first names and welcomed us at breakfast the next morning using our names. Breakfast was best quality bacon, black pudding and home made jams. Nothing was too much trouble. Room was large and the bathroom very big and comfortable.

Stayed here for three nights last week for work and was very pleased. The room and ensuite though not huge was very nice and very clean. The guesthouse is located about a mile from town so you need a car. A taxi is only a few euro if you're going for a drink or two. The price I felt was... More
