Make yur way to this amazing location. Stay in the rooms if you can, but the food is reason enough for a visit. Personally, I had the scrambled eggs and salmon three mornings in a row because they were awful and I hoped they would get better - JOKE gang!!!! they were so good the first day I couldn't resist again and again. The other items on the breakfast buffet are reason to celebrate as well. The banannas and honey, the rubharb, the breads, the fruit. All were tops in our two weeks of dining.
But, I am supposed to review the room here on this site. So, We had the room over the kitchen. You would expect it to be bad, but it wasn't By 11:00pm all noise was gone, as well as the heat, leaving us with a wonderfully quiet room with a nice breeze off the lake and no worries for a quiet nights sleep. Technically this was a triple room. The bath was generously sized and the amenities mentioned before were certainly present. I would have liked foam pillows, but slept like a baby for 3 nights, so I can't complain. I imagine those in the rooms on the front of the house might have had a nicer fresh breeze through the night, but we didn't suffer at all. Over the three nights we were there, we did have a chance to look into most of the rooms. All are similar in size and amenities. The owner has done a nice job of taking care of her overnight guests. Quality hospitality at reasonable prices with exceptional service are what you get here.
I'm a huge follower of Rick Steves when it comes to planning my trips. I don't know what he says about this area, but we found it to be a great location for touring the northeastern coast of Ireland. We visited many areas in day trips and found Dunfanaghy to be a great location for our sightseeing. The town was worth several hours of shopping and the artist galleries yielded several pieces to add to our collection.
Dining in the restaurant at the Mill House is a special treat. After bookig our room, we were asked if we wanted to eat in the dining room. Having heard that it was good food at a somewhat high cost, we did confirm for the first night. We immediately booked a res for the last night after finishing our first meal. The menu is eclectic, and exciting. I'll remember the crab starter for a long time and the strawberry soup for even longer. The wine list is extensive and offered us several choices we'd never experienced. The service is not ever rushed, and always follows the desires of the customers. I watched them deal with couples, quartets, and a party of 20 with equal aplomb and style.
Susan, you and your staff are amazing. All the best!!
