We were visiting planning to visit friends in Blackrock (near Dundalk) and found this charming accommodation on the web. There were three of us staying and we had a lovely room with one double and two twin beds.
On arrival Killian, our host, showed us the room, gave us the required information, and welcomed us. As I was bringing in the luggage (one bag) he asked if my son would like to play with his own son. As we were heading out shortly after arrival I thanked him and explained our situation. It was very nice of him, as we had had a long journey from Cork and our son would have enjoyed playing with someone of his own age.
Our room was well laid out with comfortable beds, tea/coffee facilities, information on the locality, and the breakfast booking form. The ensuite was also well supplied. The shower had good pressure and the dispenser (shampoo etc) ensured no wastage.
We had a great night's sleep and the breakfast was just what we needed. Choice of juices, cereals, yogurts, fruit etc. The full Irish was very tasty and the coffee hit the spot.
Full value for the money and the added bonus of great hospitality.
