Our stay of five nights at Bachuil Country House, on the Isle of Lios-mor was an experience which we will cherish and remember for years to come.
Niall and Anita are excellent hosts, welcoming and hospitable, having an infectious enthusiasm for the Island of Lismore, together with a great deal of interesting information and knowledge of the history of the island to share with their guests. Posie ( canis domesticus ), provides yet another friendly dimension to staying at Bachuil House.
Our room was very comfortable, especially the bed, equipped with a memory-foam(tm) mattress.
Breakfasts were definitely superior, one must not be put off if Niall suggests trying the
' Compost ' for breakfast, as it is in fact, a fruit compote, a delicious specialty of Anita.
During the last evening of our stay we enjoyed a fine evening meal, in the company of two other guests and our hosts, the ambiance being that of a friendly family evening dinner party.
During our stay we walked a fair proportion of the roads, tracks and footpaths of the island and enjoyed this very much. The Lismore Heritage Museum provides much interesting information and sensibly priced food, the museum / cafe has become a social centre for the island.
Anita and Niall could not have been more welcoming or helpful to us, we really enjoyed their company.
As one drives into the tree lined driveway of the house, one can see upon the house name board, 4 AA stars, we would suggest that 5 stars would be quite applicable.
Thank you, J and D.
