This is the second time we have stayed at the Inish Beg and the drive into the estate once again took my breath away, it's a very beautiful and special location. We stayed in the courtyard cottages which are quite well equipped and stayed very cosy with the underfloor heating and the large log burner despite the freezing weather. We loved seeing the progress made to the estate gardens and it's a lovely walk around the grounds. We once again found the owners very friendly and helpful and providing a travel cot and high chair was ideal. Our little boy particularly enjoyed the friendly bulldog sunning herself on our doorstep one morning.
If you are looking for privacy the courtyard cottages are probably not your best bet when they are all full. Next time we would love to try the higher spec'ed boat house or lodge which looked lovely.
