Our daughter planned our week traveling in Northern Ireland. After flying into Dublin she drove us through the Mourne mountains to Enniskeen Country House Hotel. We'd driven through a most beautiful part of N IRELAND and was amazed to find this was where we were spending the night. I felt so overwhelmed by everything from our room, the food, and the scenery. For dinner I had succulent lamb chops, saying a silent prayer for the soul of the departed lamb for the chops were so delicious.
The breakfast offering was quite extensive and the jams were especially tasty on homemade Irish bread. After breakfast I stopped in the kitchen to compliment the cooks who were appreciative of compliments of their jam. As we left we were able to purchase jars of gooseberry jam and rhubarb ginger.
If I ever return to the Enniskeen Country House, I will wear my rhinestone tiara for I truly feel that I'd stayed at Downton Abbey. Everything was truly over the top!!
