This was my favorite B&B as you pull in the driveway it's like you are coming into a lively country estate. The house itself is exactly how you imagine an Irish country home inside and out. The garden is beautiful and I really felt like I'd see fairies pop out at any moment! The owners were so friendly and helpful and offered Us tea when we arrived along with a map and suggestions of the best use of our time. It's located directly in the national park and if you have the time you can walk to many of the attractions. The rooms were lovely and homey! They have a cute sitting room with a fire and breakfast is in a lovely sunroom facing the garden. We saw a ton of deer grazing in the yard during our breakfast. Breakfast was fantastic I recommend the crepes! Wish we had stated here at least 2 nights and will Recommend to anyone! Pub just up the road is walkable or town is a quick 5 min drive away!
