We stayed two nights in a very spacious, comfortable room with a very nice ensuite. We enjoyed very good breakfasts and easy walks to the interesting Main Street. Tim kindly made us restaurant bookings and he and Nadine looked after us very well. Almost Excellent!

We were only able to stay two nights at Ashbourne as it was fully booked for the third night we wanted to stay. Tim and Nadine could not have done any more to help us make us make the most of our stay - from hiring bikes, recommending and booking restaurants, organising cabs to having the most lovely home away...
