Where to start? This fabulous hotel and superb dining was totally beyond our expectations. There are a limited number of rooms, and one family traveling with us mentioned how safe they felt, that though their room started out a little stuffy (during Ireland's unexpected heat wave), they felt comfortable leaving their door open while it cooled off! We took up 3 rooms for our family and each one was fabulous. Excellent sleeping in comfort and cleanliness. Beautiful rooms.
Food--absolutely top-notch cuisine. And though we felt our adult tastes were more than satisfied, the 4 young children traveling with us were also catered to. We had an exquisite dinner one night and excellent breakfast the next morning. The staff was extraordinary. Absolutely couldn't be nicer--from the lady who greeted us upon entering to the wait staff in the dining area, to Declan, our tour guide for the old abandoned castle. WOW! WOW! WOW! Would go back in a minute. Difficult to get to for us Americans; however, can't judge the location too poorly as we had an ancient castle within yards of us and a gently sloping grassy area for the kids to run on....
