We stayed at the Ardmore House for our first two nights in Ireland. Perfect, even though my daughter was cold (but she's always cold). Big comfortable rooms, heated sheets, wonderful lounge (peat fire), great breakfasts, and lovely town. We visited Clonmacnoise, Birr, Leap Castle and Kinnitty Castle close by. Christina is quite a fiddle player. Highly recommended.
