This was our first trip to Ireland. We were in Mohill doing a bit of family history research. Tina greeted us with tea, coffee and cakes when we arrived. My wife is a gardener and Tina has some wonderful gardens. Tina was happy to take my wife through all her plants and the mysterious "Monkey Pod" tree. We were made to feel right at home for the several days we stayed. Tina and Tim were both as nice as could be, you'd have thought we were family. The house is located right in the small town of Mohill so we weren't stranded out in the country - walking distance to the shops.
The accommodations were very comfortable and spotless (even the bed sheets were ironed!). We had use of the parlor and a nice fire in the evening. Afternoon tea with Tina was an added bonus. This was much more enjoyable than the fancy hotels in Dublin. Tina's daughter had written a history of Lough Rynn which proved invaluable in our family research. Tina even telephoned to her daughter so we could clarify a few points.
