We were welcomed by Martin as we pulled into the drive to park. He was shouting something at us that was quite confusing, "County Clare!" Football playoffs were going on and thought we were from Limerick because of our rental's license plate.
We headed inside, where Majella checked us into our rooms. The rooms were spacious and clean. After relaxing a little, we headed down to the Brewery that Majella recommended for dinner.
After dinner we were welcomed to go up to a separate building with a bar with Majella and Martin. As we were hanging out and exchanging tales, we were joined by other guests who brought their instruments. We were entertained by traditional Irish music on the banjo and concertina.
I have traveled a fair deal and want to say this was the best accommodation experience I have encountered. They were truly hospitable with a great atmosphere to relax. The B&B had great sitting areas to relax in away from the bedrooms. The breakfast was a traditional and hearty.
If you are driving through the Letterkenny area, make sure to stay at the Oaklands B&B!
