Tigh na Mara is a friendly welcoming hotel in the lovely village of Sandhead, Rooms are clean and comfortable and staff are always welcoming ,the food in the spacious restaurant is excellent and generous portions. Breakfast is cooked to order and was excellent. Have stayed here a number of times over the last few years and would definitely recommend.
