For those considering where to stay in this area, look no further than Tailor's Lodge. We arrived very late at night after a drive from Shannon airport and were greeted by the lovely host, Breda. From the second we walked through the door we were blown away by her sweetness and hospitality. Given the late hour we had a whispered conversation about the amenities and our plans for the coming days, and my wife and I went to sleep marvelling at what a great choice we had made. The place itself is immaculate, modern yet charming. The rooms are clean and incredibly comfortable -- like staying in a nice guest room at a family members house. The shower, as detailed in other reviews, was amazing! Breda offers several choices for breakfast, all amazing and we tested them out during our stay. The dining room is a warm and communal environment where you can eat in privacy or chat with the other guests as we chose to do. Parking was available and the place was reasonably easy to find.
In short, we were sad to leave and departed with big hugs to Breda and a sincere desire to return. She was the nicest person we met while in Ireland, and this was the best part of our trip and the most comfortable accommodation -- at an incredibly reasonable price, though we would have gladly paid more. Thanks again!
