We've traveled England, Wales, Scotland, Germany, Austria, Switzerland, etc..etc.. and almost always stayed at B&B's, enjoying meeting the 'real people', instead of the plastic statues at most hotels. Hollybank House was the most pleasant of any, to the point that we stayed for seven days. Only one B&B in Scotland has ever been close to this nice, and the owners have since retired.
Siobhan was most gracious and helpful, suggesting the best sights and mode of travel, breakfast was always cooked and delivered to perfection. In addition, Fagans Pub is only a few steps away, and the beer/ale was cold, and the food was excellent, far above average for 'Pub food'.
If we travel to Ireland again, you can be sure that this is the place where we will be staying!
Thanks, Siobhan for a great visit!!
