My sisters and I enjoyed a wonderful afternoon and evening at The Hall Green in July 2011. Jean and Mervyn were friendly and informative about the area. We did not know what to expect from such an old, historically rich home, but were pleasantly surprised at the size and charm of the bedrooms. Jean welcomed us with tea and biscuits in the sitting room and we were entertained by her lovely grandchildren who just happened to be there for a visit. They were kind enough to answer our questions and a lot of fun to listen to. Breakfast was delicious and I purchased a jar of Jean's marvelous black current jam which was enjoyed by my family when we got back to the U.S. The countryside was beautiful and we were minutes from town, where we ate supper. I wish we would have spent more than one night there, because it would have been a central location to visit a variety of places in Northern Ireland and the northwest Republic of Ireland. Thanks to Jean and Mervyn, our first trip to Ireland was extremely memborable.
