My partner and I with our 8 month old son came to Ard na Ciuin because of a TV spot showing the Swimming Lessons provided here. I was blown away upon arrival because though the pictures of the property on the website are good, they do not do the house justice. It is stunning and is so far more than a mere guesthouse/B&B that it is almost insulting to label it as such. Large spacious en suite room upstairs had 1 double and 2 single beds and still plenty of room to add a travel cot so nothing seemed cramped. A large bathroom with spacious walk in shower and bathtub was bliss. Across the landing was the shared kitchenette with sink, stove, microwave, toaster and fridge. Breakfast every morning was delicious and well presented, and with several selections, I was able to have a different breakfast every morning.We had dinner there 2 of the nights, lasagna first and Pizza second ... both were excellent because both Lynnette and Trevor are great cooks! We will be back again, not simply because Ard na Ciuin was great, but simply because there was so much to see in this part of the country that we simply couldn't get to it all!!
