We stayed here on our driving tour of Ireland as it had been recommended by some Irish friends. It overlooks the amazing (but bleak) Burren and is a nice house rather than a castle. It's beautifully furnished and isn't contrived -- it feels like a lovely country house which is just what it is. Dinner here is an absolute highlight... More

We spent 3 night here as part of our honeymoon and I think it's still the best food I have had in Ireland. The house has a lovely vibe- really nice furniture and comfortable surrounds. The room was beautiful and looked out to the ever-changing bitten landscape. The staff were great and we can't wait to go back. Even if... More

We stopped here for afternoon tea on a whim. Beautiful grounds with a marvelous view of the Burren. This place is a step up and the two ladies sitting having tea were a joy to talk to - this is the way Ireland is. You strike up a conversation with fellow patrons and the locals are super helpful and friendly.... More
