We stayed 6 nights at the Bounty Bar and used it as a base for our travels visiting relatives and many attractions. We arrived late evening and were greeted in the bar by Billy who showed us where to park the car then showed us to room number 4. The room was clean, large with a double and single bed and large en-suite bathroom with bath and shower. First impressions where great. We were told that we could come and go as we pleased as we had keys to the front door, this was a good thing for us as we left early most mornings and came back late in the evening
There were tea and coffee making facilities, packets of biscuits and bottled water. A flat screen television hung on the wall. The bathroom was clean with a shower over the bath. The shower was fantastic, very hot and powerful. The towels were replaced daily as was the tea & coffee.
For the age of the guesthouse I did expect it to have creaky floorboards but this was not the case. The plumbing was a bit on the noisy side but didn't really bother us.
When we returned in the evenings we entered through the bar area and had a drink or two. The bar was not busy and we were able to relax in the beautiful surroundings, real fire blazing, with friendly staff and local customers. There is a separate bar with a pool table which we enjoyed. On the Saturday night they had a guest singer who came on later in the evening, the bar was very busy this night with locals but there was plenty of seating and didn't feel crowded. We returned to our room during the entertainment and didn't really hear too much noise.
We would totally recommend this guesthouse to everyone for a true feel of Irish hospitality. Old fashioned charm and very laid back. If you require a lot of attention and modernity this is not the place for you. We loved it!!
