My husband and I stayed at the Harbour Master’s House on our trip through central Ireland and loved it. The hostess, Grainne Kirwin, is the daughter of the last Harbour Master in Shannon Harbour, a small village of less than 30 people. She couldn’t be more friendly or helpful. In my experience, the best meal in Ireland is always the breakfast and her breakfast was no exception. Every day was something new and delicious. While European hotel and B&B rooms are typically smaller than their American equivalents, the space was well organized and thoughtful. The views of the canal were lovely and the location was excellent for touring central Ireland or for traveling from Dublin to the west coast. Given the opportunity, we would gladly stay there again.
