We were very much looking forward to our stay at the Old Convent and from the moment we turned into the driveway and saw the home and grounds, we knew we were not going to be disappointed. The grounds and the Old Convent itself were beautiful - like something out of a storybook! Upon check-in, we were greeted by very attentive, courteous and friendly staff that showed us the home and led us to our room. We reserved the Honeymoon Suite since we were on our Honeymoon and we were so impressed with the room! VERY big with a separate sitting room with full couch, nice bathroom and gorgeous bedroom with our very own soaking tub in a separate cove of the bedroom! Talk about looking forward to relaxation! And both night's sleep was excellent! The first evening of our stay (Friday night) we chose to have the prepared Bento Box for dinner. Dermot is a superb chef and our meal was AMAZING! We had the separate dining room to ourselves and everyone at The Old Convent made us feel like royalty! On Saturday night, we enjoyed Dermot's 8-Course Tasting Menu in the main dining room. We were left speechless at how DELICIOUS each and every course was. My husband is a chef and greatly appreciated the attention to taste and detail on every plate presented! On the same note, breakfast on both mornings by Dermot was equally delicious and Christine's smiling face and friendly personality was a wonderful way to start the day. My husband planned a picnic for him and I on Saturday afternoon and Christine was more than helpful in providing what we needed and also the directions to hike to a wonderful and serene lake! And relaxing in the soaking tub in our bedroom after the hike was even better! On our stay we also made sure to explore the grounds including feeding apples to the donkeys! What fun! We HIGHLY RECOMMEND The Old Convent to travelers! Exploring Ireland's countryside, sights and attractions can be wonderful and fun, but also exhausting and our stay at The Old Convent was exactly what we needed! Relaxation!! Fantastic hospitality from Christine and Dermot, superb staff and phenomenal home! Thank you to The Old Convent for being part of our Honeymoon travels and adventures in Ireland and adding that special touch to our Honeymoon stay - what wonderful memories!
