I see that 2 people were dissatisfied and left rather poor reviews. If I may, I would like to say that my wife and I have stayed here several times and various dates. We have always found it to be a great place to stay. Its location is fantastic with lots of things to do and see. In fact we are booked in for another stay this coming October and are joyfully looking forward to our visit and our stay in the "Honeymoon Sweet" (Room 4).
When we got married we went on a tour of Ireland and this was one of several places on our itinerary. When we visited there for the first time we were given Room 4 which we referred to (jokingly) as the "Honeymoon Sweet". Each time we visit we always stay in the same room.
Room 4 is just great. Outside the window you are looking onto a babbling brook which has a very peaceful sound and laps you to sleep, well, it does the trick for us.
This is a family run B&B and is not a "Motel" as described by one reviewer. The staff even when under pressure look after your every need, it is just great. We like it so much that we drive the 3 hours or so from home to what has become our mainstay base in the Connemara area.
It is hard to please every one all the time and you may have an off-day now and then, but, a stay here is well worth the travel when you get a great Dan O'Hara welcome with a cup of tea and Paula's home baked scones and cakes.
Mmmmmmmmmmm - Looking forward to October :-)
