Bus stop was literally around the corner with a short walk from Beckett's. Knowing that the property was Samuel Beckett's mother's connection was great for this English Literature teacher, and they had...

This is a very special stunning little hotel. The rooms are quirky and oddly shaped and beautifully designed. The grounds are amazing and so well kept and the restaurant food is delicious. Can't wait to go back.
