There is a reason Friars Glen is number one, and that is the effort that Mary, Brigid and John put into making sure that their customers are completely happy, always putting in that extra effort. By the time you leave, you feel you are leaving old friends behind.
We got a great deal for booking three nights, and found we could have easily stayed longer. As well as being reluctant to leave our lovely lodging, there was still so much to see and do in the area.
Our room was lovely, very spacious as was the bathroom. On arrival we were offfered a hot drink, very welcome after a day's travel. Then Brigid sat with us going over possible itineraries and making great suggestions. On one day we were there the road on part of our chosen route was to be closed, and Brigid came up with an alternative that was one of the highlights of our trip.
And the breakfasts - wow. We had stayed at quite a number of wonderful B and B's on this trip, and thought we couldn't find better breakfasts than we had, but Friars Glen surpassed them all. So much variety, and all cooked to order. We had found other B and B's requested your order the night before, but here you were given a menu and it was all freshly cooked. Absolutely delicious. And as a bonus we got to watch the deer outside the dining room window each morning.
Our stay at Friars Glen was one of the highlights of our trip. It is in a beautiful location in the National Park.
