We stayed for three nights at the end of our honeymoon. We booked through a travel agent and should have paid more attention to the fact that TARA offers transport to and from the airport. We did quite a dumb thing and rented a car (unsolicited tip: don't do that!). After quite an adventure getting to the B&B (which is only about 10-15 minutes from the airport), we were so glad to have been greeted with a glass of wine and pleasant conversation with Brom and Julian. The next day, after an absolutely incredible breakfast, Brom's orientation the next morning helped get us on track for a full day of exploring the city. All three nights, we followed their recommendations for dinner - in the Enmore/Newport area - and all were wonderful. The only slight downfall was the traffic noise at night, but I understand they are making improvements to abate the noise. After the first night, we got used to it without any issue.
