What a wonderful place. Comfortable, spotlessly clean and cozy. The breakfast was delicious and more than enough to see me through the day. My room was so lovely and I slept like a log. Lots of thoughtful little extra's such as bottled water, toothbrush, razors etc. gave the place that special something. Will definitely be returning. Tom, the manager was...

A warm Irish welcome awaited us at this picturesque, pretty house with beautiful gardens. Our room was large, comfortable,spotlessly clean with excellent facilities. Sumptuous breakfast which set us up for the day! Nothing was too much trouble for our hosts who were very informative and helpful. We thoroughly enjoyed our week's stay, sightseeing and playing golf at beautiful courses.

When we entered the building we were astonished. The house is very nice decorated and Tom welcomed us to his B&B. When we saw our room, we just said "wow". Everything looked like it was brand new. The carpet was heavenly soft and the beds were great. The room was spacy and we didn't miss anything. Nowhere in the house...

We stayed for three nights and can't rate it high enough, luxurious and spotlessly clean with excellent facilities and a friendly warm welcome. Easily the best breakfast I've ever had and all at a great price. Very highly recommend.

Immaculate, well appointed, great value and better than any hotel. Nice alternative to staying in Dublin if you are just flying out ... 50 minute drive to the airport. We had the best sleep in our large and comfy triple. And our breakfasts were outstanding. The best scrambled eggs I've ever had. Very helpful host, also.

Thank booshela
