Dungimmon House is a fantastic place to stay and will remain one of the best memories of our fabulous journey in Ireland. It is definitely the best B&B we’ve stayed in.
As soon as he opens the door, John calls you by your first name and welcomes you in a very friendly and warm way. This doesn’t make you feel as a customer, but as an old friend of the family. John doesn’t just ask you where you come from and where you’re going. No, you will have a real, friendly and pleasant conversation with him. He will also do all that he can to help you. In spite of the hour (9 p.m.), he was able to find 3 places where we could go to have dinner. Thus, thanks to him, we could enjoy a great meal with live music.
John, Grainne and their three children share their huge and very beautiful house with you. There is a comfortable and cozy room where you can sit and have coffee or tea in a pleasant environment.
Our room was big and very pretty, well decorated with beautiful colors, and everything was very clean. The bed was large and very comfortable. The bathroom was big too, beautiful, and spotless.
You will be able to sleep very well without any noise except, maybe, the rain or some birds.
In the morning, you’ll have a wonderful breakfast prepared by John. And you can choose what you want to eat on a menu! The full Irish breakfast is delicious. I tried the “pochés” eggs which were fantastic too and served with homemade incredible brown bread, and I enjoyed an exquisite porridge! In addition, you can have what you want from a beautiful buffet.
Once you have got your full coffee pot, or you tea, or whatever you asked for, you can enjoy your breakfast in a pleasant, calm and peaceful atmosphere. Through the large windows, you can admire the beautiful landscape, trees, flowers, birds, while hearing some beautiful classical music. Then you can look at the walls, just like in a museum: old pictures, former Irish notes and coins, a menu from the beginning of the 20th century (on which almost everything is written in French, so interesting!), a very relevant newspaper article, and even the old (should I write “auld”?) legend of the seven gold pots. At that point, you can imagine how difficult it is to leave that place… But when you leave, John doesn’t close the door immediately. Even if it’s raining, he stands there and says good bye to his old friends…!
I would like to thank John and Grainne for these moments of pure happiness. And I would also like to add something: I will never let any of my friends visit Ireland without spending at least one night at Dungimmon House!
John, if you ever come back to Paris with Grainne, you can call us if you want and we will be very happy to spend a few moments with you!
