“Oh, to be back at Rory's!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 8, 2013

I can still feel that "warm and happy sinking into the chair specialness" when remembering the upstairs gathering room at Roary's -- and looking out at the sea straight in front of us, with views of the island spreading to each side. Our front-of-the-house, corner room was huge and especially comfy. With even better (if possible) views! It had a table alcove from which we could see the whole vista!

The food was fulsome! And delicious. And all home-cooked, of course. And we were only a stairway away from it and the pub, where guests -- mostly Irish -- could be found singing and playing every night. And the adjoining bar where hired musicians come in summertime.. Maybe wintertime, too. I'll have to ask.

Many folks find the islands isolated, and ask what is there to do out there but walk around a bit and see nothing but scenery, and a few antiquities, and you can do all that in a few hours, just like you can so many other places in Ireland, so why wouldn't a quick day trip out and back do just fine? For some, it does. For me, never! To my way of thinking, it takes at least one night, preferably two, before the island "feeling" sinks into your being and captures your heart and makes you want to stay for days/weeks, and return, and return, and return even again. We are hoping to make our 7th trip soon. From America!

If you're looking for a day -- or days -- of wandering, and lounging, and an evening full of good food, and music, surrounded by people who feel the same way, I couldn't recommend Rory's more highly!

Rory's is a spot for all generations: oldsters like us, couples, family, friends and solo's. There are lots of young people there during the summer months. Some families return year after year. We would if we lived in Europe!


Room Tip: Ask for one of the two largest room at the front of the hotel. The views are spectacular.
