    Perfect hosts. Super comfortable bed and top class breakfast.
  • Corinne
    This was by far the most beautiful place we stayed at during our Ireland road trip. And it's not expensive at all. We loved the castle-like decor, the fact that it's family run, has a super fresh à la carte breakfast and was very accommodating...

  • HI there, I notice it says 'pets allowed'. We have a small dog. Do you have a room which would be suitable for us? She is fully house trained, but it would be preferable to have a room on ground level so we can let her out when we need. Alos, is the kitchen is available for self catering? Thanks

    Hi, yes we do accommodate pets, I have only single room on ground floor, but I do not do self catering, only B/B, Regards Breege
