This was quite a trek on a windy road while dodging sheep to get to the town of Clifden; and was worth it. We arrived about 8 in the evening for check in. One of the owners was at the desk when we checked in and took our luggage to our room. Our room key was a skeleton key which makes it more authentic. We did attend dinner in which we meant the other owner who gave us a free drink for being on our honeymoon. They shared the same last name with us and we were known as the lost bride & groom cousins. Dinner was very busy with large groups of people. We felt a bit out of place being just the two of us but it was not that uncomfortable. The owners were waiting on the tables and speaking with the guests. That was very personal service. Instead of going to the bar we hung out in the room and walked to the bar to get drinks. The bar was packed and Brain (the owner) was at the Piano. He did see me walk in and made an announcement that the honeymooners were in the bar. He also dedicated a song to us. The wait was a bit long but expected for as busy as the place was. The parrot in the lobby added a neat touch with its “ringing” and other fun phrases it had learned. The atmosphere was perfect with the old touch. Exactly what we were looking for.
