We read great review after great review about the Pearse Lodge so as we headed towards Derry from the Cliffs of Moher we decided to make the Lodge our stopping point. It may have been a bit out of the way, but we were willing to make the extra drive just to stay there. So needless to say, our expectations were very high & Mary exceeded them! From the start we knew customer service would be great, as we were running very late & called Mary to let her know we may not arrive until 10pm. We told her she could leave a key outside for us if needed, she said no worries she would be awake. So not only was Mary waiting when we arrived, she said she had upgraded us to a suite. The room was modern, perfectly clean & the bathroom was huge. She then proceeded to tell us which pubs we could walk to to find traditional Irish music. It was about a 10 minute walk to downtown & the places she told us about were just as described. The next morning we enjoyed an extended breakfast menu & in our 11 days staying in B&B's in Ireland this breakfast was as good as any. Mary then gave us directions to our next destination & some advice on things to see. This was the best all around stay we had on our entire trip. I highly recommend staying here, even if you have to drive out of your way it is well worth it. The best valued B&B we have ever stayed at.
Thank You Mary!
