We were in the area for a party and Laurel House was suggested as a place to stay. Thankfully we got in ahead of everyone else as it was Five Star all the way. Upon arrival we were met by our great hosts Mark and Dolores. Complimentary Wine, Water etc. were laid on in the room as well as some light bites in the Living Area downstairs. I am in the Golf Travel Business and the three important areas are Good Bed, Breakfast and Shower. Laurel House excelled in each of these areas. The Breakfast was as good as you could imagine with homemade breads, jams, local procduce and berries from the garden - why go to five star hotel when you can just pop into Laurel House.
Mark even took us to party and offered to collect us....now that what I call service. Great views of the rolling irish countryside from our room. On behalf of the five of us who stayed there, a big thank you to Dolores, Mark and Boys. Best Wishes for the future and looking forward to popping in again very soon.
