We enjoyed our stay there especially since it was right before the tourist season began and we were the only pampered guests. The rooms are a nice size and the grounds are beautiful - you are greeted with a lovely flowing stream alongside the driveway. We were thankful for our excellent international GPS to guide us there on narrow back roads. The breakfasts were delicious and varied and since we were the only guests, we ate our delightful dinners by the fire in the bar area. Although Joseph the chef had not arrived, the lady of the house is a wonderful cook and served 4 and 5 course gourmets meals - superb from the appetizers to desserts - all homemade with extra fresh ingredients, generous portions
We were a bit cold upon arrival but the radiators heated up quickly. The luxurious bed linens caused us not to want to get up on time and was very quiet place to sleep. There are cable televisions in the rooms.
The husband host is very entertaining and helpful and a real talker but can tell some good stories. He gave us good advice on directions, places to visit and where to eat while there. This hotel/bed and breakfast is a good place to stay and dine for several days and make day trips around Connemara from there.
