However, the Lodge was immaculate, the bedrooms were good sized, and the beds were comfortable. The proprietor was very nice and super helpful giving us information about places to eat and things...

A, from the host, recommended bar which was... More

Trish is a very lovely host. She made sure we were very comfortable and catered very well for our vegetarian breakfast requests! We had some lovely breakfasts for the four days we stayed! Just could not eat all of it as Trish is too generous with her food! The room was beautifully appointed with all necessities and the bed was... More

This is not far from Shannon and would be a good place to spend time as you arrive from Shannon Airport or as a stay while exploring Ireland around Shannon. Trish is your host and can recommend quality restaurants and shops in the area. The breakfast in the... More
