From the moment we arrived it was clear that we were in good hands as the owner, Catriona, offered us tea or coffee which were ready for us as soon as we had unpacked the car. It was a typically wet windy autumn night so, after a long drive, it was wonderful to sit and sip our tea in the comfort of the clean, spacious visitors lounge and luxuriated in the warmth of a real Connemara turf fire. Catriona came to check if everything was o.k. and we nagged away at her about the Connemara ponies - a special interest of ours - but at no point did she show the slightest sign of impatience but was, instead, upbeat and generous with her information. The cleanliness, comfort, warmth and spaciousness of the visitors lounge, extended to our bedroom too. A detailed file on walks in the area, carefully written compiled by Catriona herself, made excellent bedtime reading. The next morning, after a perfect breakfast, we went for a walk along Kilarry fjord, which Catriona's notes had recommended was ideal if the weather was windy or misty i.e. not really suitable for the mountains. Sure enough, even though a strong wind was blowing, most of our walk was completely sheltered and therefore that much more enjoyable. It is this kind of attention to detail which goes above and beyond the basics of cleanliness and comfort, and of which I could give many other examples, which sets this B&B apart from many of the others I've stayed in.
