The interior designer who dreamed up the decor in this establishment should be forbidden from repeating this type of project. The building which houses the bedrooms and suites was tacked on to what was once a most beautiful property. This formerly splendid country house has been ruined by tacky and nasty looking decor. The rooms are perhaps too large and the furnishings are reminiscent of celtic tiger excesses but poor quality prevails. Cheap and nasty soft furnishings. The website boasts toiletries from L'Occitance but these were not present. Instead we got most unpleasant products from allegrini intimates. The food at breakfast was good save for the coffee which was so strong a spoon could stand up in the cup. Why not give proper coffee in a cafetiere instead of the bogwater served? The property is in a great location and there is lots to do locally as it is positioned next to Connemara. Its a pity a little more money was not spent on the decor and the house and bedrooms done properly.It would make all the difference.
