Mary Beth and I had good fortune of vacationing in Ireland in October 2009 and in September 2010. We stayed mostly in B and Bs, and of all that we visited in those two trips, Windermere House was one of the very best. We simply could not return to Ireland without staying at Windermere House a second time.
Upon arrival, owner Kay McGrath greets guests with tea and freshly backed scones, and those scones are to die for— the very best in all of Ireland. The house is superbly maintained, rooms are well appointed, and Kay is a wonderful hostess. Fine breakfasts are served in a dining room filled with interesting collectibles representing the owner’s own travels abroad.
Windermere house is ideally located for visiting Westport, Newport, and all the Clew Bay area, including Clare Island and the Famine Monument south of Louisburg. And the city of Castlebar is only a few kilometers away.
When you go there be sure to play with Dixie, the wonderful dog who loves to play Gaelic football. Like her humans, she is a delight.
