Wow - this place is great. I don't know where to begin - the house (accommodations) or the hosts (Paddy and Julia). Both are spectacular.
We spent 2 nights here in April and I would return in a heartbeat. The house itself is a perfect blend of luxury and comfort. Just the place to lay your weary bones and frazzled nerves after a long road trip or a short drive on the Sky Road. We stayed in the Napoleon Room, it was wonderful. The room has a queen size bed, large sitting area, great view of the bay and a well sized bathroom, with separate dressing area.
Breakfast is a feast. One morning my husband had fresh mackerel – just off the fishing boat. The public rooms are warm, comfortable and furnished with very interesting objects. You need to walk around a few times to appreciate all the details and uniqueness of the furnishings.
Paddy and Julia however are the icing on the cake. They are the epitome of what one would imagine an Irish host/hostess to be. Paddy has a HUGE personality, very entertaining. Julia is elegant, charming and gracious.
To sum up … The Quay House …………Priceless!!!
