I stayed with 3 girlfriends (2 travelled from Cork -- long drive!!, 2 from Dublin). We arrived tired and stiff and were met with such warmth and hospitality that it blew us away. Alex and Brian are two wonderful hosts .. they met our every need and pre-empted us on more that one occassion. We dined in the restaurant on both nights and the food was fabulous ,, we had both seafood and lamb... scallops were gorgeous and perfectly cooked.
The sitting room area is homly and comfortable. The bedrooms were tight space wise (no. 1) and basic but spotlessely clean and my friend who travels extensively for work, always to 4* or 5* venues remarked that the beds were very comfortable and we all slept great.
The breakfast was adequate but none fo us are really morning eaters... Brown bread is made fresh every morning and is divine... One small request though guys, the coffee could be better.
In summary, you would not go wrong staying here -- great comfort, great views, great food, great hospitality, great value .. Now if only somehting could be done about that weather !!!
