We chose our stay based on a local friend recommending it and we couldn't have been more pleased with our decision. We got 2 rooms for 2 nights, and both came with a private bathroom and shower. Comfortable beds, quiet and large enough to accommodate all of our luggage and shopping. In room coffee or tea, free Internet, extremely clean.... More

Great location, free parking, very clean, rooms are a good size as we had 2 gigantic suitcases plus carry-ons, private en-suites, coffee or tea in our... More

My mom and I were able to enjoy Ken and Mary's hospitality for two nights while researching our family history in the area. It was the perfect landing place for us that felt as comfortable as being at home, but with even better breakfasts and extra little treats like cake and milk left out for us. We stayed in the...

Excellent in every respect - well-situated with many places of interest within easy reach; comfortable, spotlessly clean accommodation (with daily surprise treats!); lovely breakfasts with a range of fruits and cereals and cooked dishes; congenial hosts who obviously care about their guests and show a genuine interest in them. Would definitely stay again , and without hesitation, would recommend to... More

Last minute bookings are the best, we arrived earlier than expected but that was no problem, Kenny showed us around and their was even some of Mary's cake in the fridge for us. The suite was just PERFECT along with breakfast and a long chat after with mine Hosts. Thank to both of them.

Our hosts, Ken and Mary, are fabulous people and if you like humour in general, you will appreciate Ken's high sense of "Irish humour" and generosity. Breakfast is a memorable moment as guests are treated like VIPs and Mary's operating in the kitchen offers the best that can be found at home. Will definitely go back there to carry on... More
