On a pan-Northern Ireland trip I was lucky enough to walk-in and secure a room in this special place – a five room townhouse located in the centre of a quiet town, in the centre of Northern Ireland.
The owners were very welcoming, and the townhouse full of atmosphere derived from a variety of interesting and attractive features, such as the period furnishings and collection of old medicine bottles. Also, as someone who has experienced many a hotel, a special treat was the fine shower with great water pressure.
I felt so positive about the experience, a week later I decided to alter my travels and I spent another night at the Laurel Villa before leaving the country.
