Joe was the ultimate host, making sure we knew about the things to do and see in the area, calling ahead for us for admissions, giving directions. When we arrive, he and Olive were planning on going out to play bridge, so our instructions were, "The place is yours until we get back, but, if you go out, slam the front door hard." Breakfast was a delight, the usual Irish, but whatever else you wanted. The location is central to all the historical sites and locations north of Dublin. I'd do it again.
