The accommodation is spotless with plenty of space and quality touches. A very comfortable bed in the cream room. Dinner and breakfast were cooked to perfection. We went for several treatments, reflexology and massages... More

An excellent experience in a most comfortable room with a perfect breakfast and incredibly hospitable hosts. We will definitely be returning for additional visits. Little touches made all the difference. Please see previous reviews. Thank you Bill and Barbara.

We stayed with Bill and Barbara for 5 nights, in the 1st floor room with ensuite, while visiting family and attending a family wedding. The room was lovely, with nice touches like chocolates and fresh flowers. Bill's fry-ups were spectacular and the overall atmosphere was very relaxed. Really enjoyed our stay, and Bill and Barbara are excellent hosts - thank... More

Brilliant b & b. Brilliant hosts. Luxurious room exquisitely decorated and exceptionally clean. Excellent en-suite. Most beautiful Irish breakfast - especially the crispy potato bread. Barbara and Bill go above and beyond the call of duty eg: dropped us down to the wedding venue and picked us up again at midnight!!! Highly recommend. Great fun.

Five star luxurious bedrooms and bathrooms, amazing relaxing beds in such beautiful tranquil surrounding unspoilt countryside.
