My husband was the first in our family to stay at Mallmore Country House, as he was visiting his uncle at Clifden hospital. When he returned after his stay in Mallmore he raved so much about the place, and of course Kathleen & Siobhan's Kindness and hospitality, that I decided I would have to go with him on the next visit to see what all the fuss was about. Well I must say what he said about his visit was not exaggerated. When we arrived we were warmly greeted by Siobhan who showed us to our spacious room, the place was warm, welcoming and immaculately clean. I was in awe with everything, from the beautiful décor, to the beautiful view from the window which looked out onto the garden, and beyond to the bay. Our room had a beautiful sitting area, on the table there was bottled water, and they even had wine glasses and a bottle opener if you wish to bring in a bottle of wine. On returning late that evening, we had a cup of tea in the beautiful sitting room, furnished with some fine antiques, I truly felt like lady of the manor. After a wonderful nights sleep we had a wonderful breakfast, which kept us going for the day. We were sad to leave, but we reserved two rooms for the following weekend, as our daughter was visiting from London and had heard us raving so much about Mallmore. She was just as impressed. Coming from London she loves the peace and Tranquillity. On the evening we arrived we decided to take a walk up to bishops seat to see the sun set. It was picture perfect. The view out to the bay is breath taking. The following morning our daughter was impressed with the wonderful choices for breakfast, she had the French toast, it was hard to decide as there was a lot to choose from and she is vegetarian. Kathleen & Siobhan had made some wonderful scones, I have since tried to make them but not as good as Mallmore:) We hope to return again some time in the future, and want to thank Siobhan & Kathleen for their wonderful kindness & hospitality.
