Hard to add anything to the views already expressed. The place is wonderful, the views superb, the hosts lovely people. The scrambled eggs and smoked salmon was the best I had in Ireland.
The property is very large, (35 acres I think they said) and the drive from the front gate to the house is an experience in itself. Some national parks don't do as well.
There are direct links between the property and the John Darcy who established Clifden. Seriously significant (local) history here.
