After a not so memorable stay in Dublin the Cairbre House was warm and welcoming. This nearly 200 year old home was easy to find and located on a tidal estuary on the North side of Dungarvan. Our host Brian made tea for us after we got settled, explained the local area and reviewed a number of locations and menus for dinner options. He was very cordial and outgoing, making you feel right at home. The room was large and comfortable and the ensuite bath was more than adequate for our needs. Guests has their own sitting room to use. There is a patio or solarium on the back of the house overlooking the water that makes an excellent spot to watch the sunset. Breakfast was an event, cooked expertly by Brian and using all fresh local products. Delicious! If you have the good fortune to stay at Cairbre House, don't miss Brian's garden; it is beautiful and the roses rival those in the gardens of the Powerscourt Estate. We only stayed one night, but would highly recommend this classic home to anyone traveling across Southern Ireland.
