My wife Roz and I had visited Ardtara country house once before and always wanted to return. In September, as a surprise, for our friends birthday we arranged a stay.
It was Martin and Michelles first visit to Northern Ireland and we wanted it to be a special one. Having enjoyed my previous visit so I was nervous as to whether the return would live up to expectation. I need not have worried.
The house looks much the same , but with the addition of a down stairs guest room for those with disabilities.But what made the experience so wonderful was the attentiveness of the staff. It was like being in your own home, only better. The staff led by Valerie, give everyone a warm welcome. Nothing is to much trouble, even if it is late at night!!
I would strongly reccomend a stay and dine in at least once while there. The food is fantastic and produced locally and of course the Irish whiskey always helps.
I'm glad to say our friends were not dissapointed and hopefully will be returning.
