We stayed here in August 2012. My wife had done her research for a place to stay while spending time at the Cliffs of Moher and Ines Mor. The reviews were really good, so we gave it a go. Undoubtedly, it was one of the best choices we made on this trip. We were coming back from Ines Mor, and were running really late. One of the main reasons that we booked here was for the dining. We were so late, that we missed our opportunity to have dinner there on our one night stay. We called them to let them know we were coming, and they were extremely hospitable, and kept the kitchen open well past closing! Lucky for us because the food was in the top two during our two-week stay in Ireland. We arrived late and got the tail end of the sunset, but it looked great from the restaurant. After dinner, we made our way to the small bar where the conversation was warm and inviting. Two pints later, it was time to make our way to our rooms.
The rooms were beautiful and inviting, with great views. Overall, the experience was outstanding despite our short stay. I would recommend this place to anyone in the area.
