We stopped over at Miriam's wonderfully unique B&B in Bruff, Co. Limerick on the long drive from Dublin to Dingle. This is a beautiful & tastefully decorated house where you are welcomed you with a roaring fire and a brilliant hostess who carefully balances friendly chat without being intrusive. Nearby Bunratty Castle & Folk Park (with the Fairy Village) &...
