This is my favouite place to stay anywhere in the world and I have travelled alot. The house is beautifully designed, I have seldom seen a heritage house that feels so bright and fresh. The owners, Patricia and John, look much too young to have such a majestic house, they spent 7 years restoring the building from an unwanted shell. They are energetic, enthusiastic and always on hand with help and advice. John is a landscape photographer and can tell you all the best places to visit. You will also meet, Sebastian and Yvonne, a charming polish couple, who have been working in there ever since I have been coming and they can give you a facinating perspective on modern Ireland
I try to have dinner everytime I stay, it is a big event, all the guests sit around a big mahogany table, lit by silver candelabra. Nearly all the food comes from gardens and Patricia is an excellant cook. The breakfast is equally impressive, you will not get a choice between sugar puffs, cocoa pops and frosties, but you do get muesli, fresh fruit, yoghurt, smoked meats, smoked fish, cheese, freshly baked bread, home made jams and of course 'the full Irish'.
I have stayed here 3 times and I will be back.
