We have stayed at the Briers Country House for two Nights as Part of a trip around Ireland to visit family over Christmas. Our experience was exactly as we expected after reading reviews - the location was beautiful, the welcome warm and breakfast very great! We arrived early to drop in our luggage and Susan was very accommodating in providing us with tea and coffee at 11am, before we headed into Newcastle, where we spent the day exploring the town. She gave us some recommendations for coffee shops and restaurants, even reserved us a table at a local bistro called Vanilla for that evening. Our Room (4) was big, clean and had a double and a single bed and a simply wonderful view. When we returned to our room it was warm and cosy, and the best part was there were hot bottles in the bed! A very pleasant and thoughtful suprise, even though it wasn't even so cold outside!
Breakfast was large and tasty, and there was a huge selection of yoghurts and fruit etc. Susan chatted to us over breakfast and asked how our evening had been.
We will be back to the Briers on our next visit to Ireland, and would Highly recommend it to any of our friends.
