Mere words cannot express our happiness at finding such a beautiful spot to spend two wonderful nights in a very charming hotel/B&B. From the first email to Alison and Teresa to the final wave from Teresa as she wished a safe journey, we were treated with kindness, civility, and above all flexibility. As you will, within an hour of arriving, we fell in love with the island and realized one day was not going to be nearly enough to enjoy the heat wave Northern Ireland was having. (highs of 75 (LOL) with no humidity and a nice breeze-though you should ALWAYS pack for rain in NI) The second night the Inn was full (so to speak), but Alison found a way to work us into a single. (Which, being on our honeymoon, was no imposition at all.) The craic was mighty at McCuaig's Bar which normally (?) has music on w/e. We were lucky enough to catch and have a few pints with a virtual troupe of comedians appearing that weekend. At first we were a little disappointed, but the shows were hilarious and a good time was had by all until the bar "technically" closes at four. (They close the doors and you're in or out till six when they "open." LOL) But the best part was feeling we had a "home" to go to for a nap, shower, or for thoughtful advice on how to do any of the myriad things we wished to do. Alison and Teresa made a stay on lovely island fantastically better!
