I do not agree with a lot of the rewivew on here.
On a recent trip to Ireland 6 of us stayed with Tom and Valerie. And we could not have been happier. Valerie was full of life, and energy. From the moment we e-mailed to the time we called to let her know we were on our way. She even saved us seats at a local pub for the Ireland vs. Italy footie match. Breakfast was served when we asked for it around 8:30 both days. Yes the rooms are small but with full to king sized beds that is to be expected. As for sitting areas we were able to use the breakfast sitting area for a night of cards and drinking with no problem. In fact we brought back take-away and Tom was more then happy to offer plates, napkins, and pint glasses for out beers. This is not a 5 start hotel, if you are looking for high end this is not the place for you. But if you want a warm place to sleep, and people with kind warm hearts to care for you stay with Tom and Valerie.
