We chose to eat diviner there as it is is quite far... More

The bathroom was spectacular, large and tiled, including a jacuzzi. Unfortunately our tub's jets did not work (but it was roomy enough for both... More

This was a spur of the moment trip for myself and my partner. We were booked and on the road in less than an hour, Hanora's is in the beautiful Nire Valley in the Comeragh mountains ideal for walkers. We were chilling out so did not undertake anything too energetic on this trip! The room was lovely and had a... More

Advance reservation worked fine and would we hoped ensure a warm reception at this acclaimed restaurant and guesthouse. Our arrival after a nearby hillwalk appeared to take the staff by surprise until they no so graciously acknowledged that the reservation had been made. There followed a series of omissions in service which left us wondering if non residents can enjoy... More
