Marie Henry is an Irish gem. She is polite, an extraordinary hostess, a great cook and a tremendous ambassador for Ireland. This B & B is really her vacation home which should be featured in Architectural Digest. Loaded with original artwork located on 8 acres of unrivaled seafront with a private beach, Henry's is simply the best. Each bedroom has a full ocean view. Each bedroom is unique and designed primarily by your hostess. NO detail is too small to have thought of. Bed linens are silk-like cotton; the bathroom has custom or near custom fixtures. No leaks, scratches, chips. Staying at Henry's is a privilege. You truly feel as if you are a guest in someone's exquisite home. The price is CHEAP in comparison to every other place we stayed. We will never return to Ireland without staying here EVERY time. It is a destination in and of itself. I am almost hesitant to share this with TA to avoid making this a MUST STOP for every Ireland bound visitor.
