Despite necessary alterations to make it function as a hotel, it still feels like you are a guest in someone's country home.

We had our first meal in the bar which was casual and delicious and melted into our surroundings as we enjoyed a decadent chocolate dessert and whiskey. The following night we had a meal we will never forget; we were left... More

Upon arrival, we were warmly welcomed and escorted to our upgraded suite, which was spacious, light, and beautifully and comfortably appointed. Throughout our stay, service was warm, gracious, and helpful, both in the hotel and dining room. Breakfast and dinner both were delicious, featuring top local... More

The fine dining restaurant was not open on the Tuesday so we ate in the bar. However, this did not detract from the quality... More

We drove up the coast after visiting the Aran island to stay the night here. Rooms were huge and the dinner was awesome. Take a walk around to view the landscape and the view it is beautiful. Will gladly return!
