My wife and I stayed with Sean and his family in early April. His wife was there when we arrived rather late in the day, around 9pm, as we were caught up driving the Gap of Moll/Dunloe. She was a warm, welcoming person with a lot of welcome recommendations for what to do in the area. We had suffered a flat tire on the Gap of Dunloe that day so she immediately called Sean who arranged for us to have our tire changed early the next morning at a shop he regularly does business with. We were also interested in doing the Skellig Michael ferry tour the next morning, so Sean called before we woke up to check on weather conditions. On our second day, I fell ill from poorly prepared food, and Sean was more than accommodating, asking if I wanted tea for my stomach and offering to make food later the next morning than normal.
The house itself has a warm inviting feel with a quaint brook in front with a beautiful garden. Views from rooms include mountains and surrounding countryside. Bathroom with very modern showers and other facilities.
Sean also went out of his way to give us guidebooks on places we were going as well as translating "We are pregnant" into Gaelic to take photos with to announce our upcoming arrival.
Would definitely recommend and also will stay again when we return in the future.
