Due to other commitments we were only able to spend one night here on our recent tour of Ireland. However, during that time, we found Margaret to be the perfect host. She was friendly, helpful and a delight to talk to. Both our evening meal and breakfast were of top quality. Had a little bit of trouble with the Wifi and would have liked a better view but overall were very pleased.
Margaret's booklet about the laying of the telegraph cable was most impressive. It was also very kind of Margaret not to charge us for the second night which we had booked but couldn't honour.
A lovely lady.
