Upon our arrival at the compound of the Grennan's Country House, we were greeted warmly by our hosts, Deidre and Pat and a great Irish breakfast. For the next 9 days in Ireland, this was our "home away from home". The cottage we stayed had 5 bedrooms with ensuite bathrooms. The rooms were cozy, the beds were very comfortable even the pillows. The bathrooms were modern with powerful showers. A large room, served as our living room with a TV and a kitchen with a dishwasher and a large fridge, was our gathering spot in the mornings and late nights. Our hosts had supplied us with milk and juices, eggs, cheeses, jams, breads, coffee and tea. Our daily freshly baked scones by Deidre was a treat. After 9 days at our "home" in Ireland, we were sent off with another delicious breakfast. I highly recommend the Grennan's Country House.
