눇On my way to the Dingle Food Festival, I stopped at Brighton House for the night. It is a lovely, nearly 200 year old house, decorated in mostly period pieces. Lighting and bathroom fixtures have been updated, as well as having a flat-screen TV on the wall. If you're looking for a sparkling clean, sterile accommodation, go stay in a generic hotel room. This is not the place for you. The rooms are clean and welcoming, but not "hotel room" sterile. This has a real home atmosphere.
Pat and Bernie, the hosts, treat you like a friend, recommending places to eat, places to visit, and the closest place to access an ATM. The rooms are so quiet, it was like living in the country! On returning from Dingle, I considered visiting another town, but returned to Brighton Place and Clonmel for my last three days, knowing it would be a restful and enjoyable end to my visit to Ireland.
