Ard Na Ciuin is situated on the top of a hill, giving it unparalleled views of the area. It is a beautiful spot and I am sad that we did not have the time to stop for longer.
Unlike some other B&Bs in Ireland the shower was spacious and the water pressure second to none. The room was large and well appointed.
Lynette and Trevor were gracious hosts - a small problem with the heating was rectified immediately once they were notified. The breakfast was lovely and included fresh muffins - there was even vegemite available for Australians who may be missing it.
