Not a bad place but it needs work. The rooms are very large but old. The bathrooms were just too small and old. The owners are friendly and try hard but the house needs an influx of capital. While it is quite lovely, and the grounds are also very beautiful, it justs needs a lot of work. This is not the place to take the family... no TV, no radio, and you can only see the sheep so many times before that gets old. If however you like older, historic-type places.. then perhaps this is for you. However I would suggest Markree Castle which is just down the road and 100 times better.
