My boyfriend and I stayed here for one night during our 1+ week trip driving around Ireland. It was advertised as a luxury B&B on a website and boy were they right. The B&B was very big, well kept, clean and spacious. We stayed in a room that had a big bed, about 6 windows, a couch and a vanity. The bathroom was nice and clean and the water pressure was good. Free wifi was provided.
We arrived and had no problem with checking in. Sandra, the host, was extremely friendly and explained everything to us. Breakfast the next morning was the BEST breakfast we had during our whole trip. A continental breakfast buffet was set up and then you could order off of a hot menu. The coffee was great! The food was delicious! The room where the dining room was located was spacious, sunny and was beautifully decorated.
The bedrooms had an old style lock/key system. Skeleton keys as some would call them. It was a bit difficult getting into and out of our room because we had to lock the door manually each time. If you didn't put the key in the lock the right way, the room would not lock. It added to the Manors unique touch though! I would highly recommend this B&B to anyone!
The only constructive criticism I have would be about how the Manor smelled. It smelled like a funeral home. Lots of calla lilies! In the U.S., that smell is associated with funeral homes and that is all I could think about every time I would step out of my room.
