We spent one night here recently on our way back to Dublin from Cork. It was a bit tricky to find, up a windy hill with very, very narrow driving space! Once there, however, there was plenty of area to park. Our hostess, Elizabeth, wasn't home when we arrived at about 4pm, but she returned while we were ringing the doorbell for the second time. She apologized for not being there to greet us, explained that it was her day off, and she was running errands.
We were asked to wait in the public 'living room' while she unpacked and put away her groceries, but then she readily took us upstairs to show us our rooms. Our family of 4, husband, wife and 2 adult daughters, had 2 rooms for the night. Our room was comfortable, although the bed squeaked badly, no matter how still one slept. The room in which our daughters slept had the 'quirky' bathroom about which Elizabeth explained to them how to position the shower door so as not to flood the room and cause damage to the ceiling below. She also told them that they had the best view of Ireland outside their bathroom window!!
Breakfast was served downstairs in a cheery room, with an assortment of juices and cereal, as we had come to expect in our Ireland B&B experiences. Elizabeth's brown bread was particularly delicious! She served us huge portions and sent us on our way full and happy.
