Discovering that we weren't needed for Grandparenting Duties we made a booking on line with Manor House Hotel Group for Ross Lake House,from Tue 30th,Oct -Thurs1st Nov.
After a long drive from Carrickfergus we arrived in the late afternoon.Our room was to the front ,"Captain Crowe" and was a twin as requested.Comfortable and warm.
We quickly made our way to the Lounge for a cup of tea and bikkie for which we were billed!!.
As it was late we decided to have Dinner later which was excellent.Henry the Proprietor is a charming man and made us feel very welcome.A word of warning if you haven't been to Republic of Ireland recently "The cost of wine is extortionate".
We discovered that the House was being closed down for the winter at the end of the week,but this did not detract from our stay as we wanted peace and quiet.
While in Connemara we went to visit the Cliffs of Moher.
Rather a long journey from where we were,but worth the effort.
On our second night we also ate in the Hotel and were not disappointed with the food.
Overall we enjoyed our stay in the Ross Lake House,and Henry and Elaine were delightful hosts.We would stay here again.
Perhaps the room rates could be viewed as high,considering the Hotel does not provide anything other than Peace and Quiet.
