Yes. Really. We were pleasantly surprised! We had a great experience at the Palm Lodge last night. It was a last minute reservation for our party of 5- and they we're very accommodating. This B&B is 5 minutes off the M8 and we arrived about an hour after leaving Blarney Castle. It's about 200 km from Dublin. The rooms were spacious, well decorated and very clean. The bathrooms were just as tidy and well laid out. The landscaping is beautiful and the rooms have amazing views of rolling hills and pastures. A bonus at this B&B was that there is a generous kitchenette available to boarders. Breakfast was delicious and the freshly squeezed OJ made the meal. We ate dinner at the Hunter's Rest, just about 4 minutes down the road. The restaurant was delicious, inexpensive and offered a wide variety of choices including spring rolls and a whole page of chicken entrees.
