Arrived from snow covered England to snow covered Co. Wexford, Waterford Airport was closed which resulted in a 31/2 hour journey by coach from Galway and an unplanned collection from Mark (The Proprietor of Kilmokea Gardens) in treacherous conditions to get us to warmth and safety.
Such a warm, friendly country house with open fires and soft sofa's, after a whiskey, hot bath and delicious dinner, the traumatic journey seemed worth it.
The next morning, after a substantial full English breakfast, we enjoyed exploring the snow covered gardens, which once inside the walled garden was still quite staggering,despite the snow. We continued to enjoy the beautiful scenery, indoor swiming pool, jacuzzi and sauna all weekend and unexpectedly beyond, in between delicious lunches and dinners.
We would like to thank Mark and Emma for the wonderful friendly service they and their team provided during our stay. That included two failed attempts by Mark to get us to the airport in treacherous conditions before finally making the third two hour round trip. If ever a small country hotel deserved to do well, it is Kilmokea!
