What a welcome we had after a long day's journey. We were warmly welcomed by Sorcha the owner. Upon arrival we were offered tea and home made scones. (delicious). The rooms were very clean and comfortable. We picked the previous night from a selection of made to order gourmet breakfast choices. Everyone in our party of 5 was quite pleased with the excellent breakfast . The location was great! We walked everywhere.
We liked it so much we asked to stay another night but alas the inn was full. So... on to Sligo we went. Thank you Sorcha for knowing what travelers are looking for in extreme comfort.
