I wasn't sure about where to go while I was in the area, but Mary had some great advice about where I should visit. She also helped my to plan transportation to the harbor in PortMagee, where the ferries to Skellig Michael depart. The bathroom on the top floor is a bit small, and the slanted ceiling in the top floor room that I had was very low (watch your head if you happen to get a room like that!), but the house was kept clean, and my bed was very comfortable. She allows travelers to stay in the double bed rooms without paying a two person occupancy, so the prices were very reasonable. Breakfast is the typical sort of continental ordeal that one might expect, but there is a fully functional kitchen if you want to cook your own hot breakfast. The best part is that you don't need to wash your dishes: there is an electric dish washer : )
