Rounding out 3 weeks of touring around Ireland, we took a chance and drove directly to Killyliss in Monaghan to find a B&B for several nights. Pauline greeted us warmly with the good news she could accommodate us for the duration of our stay. We didn't know how lucky we were. Her signature welcoming tray of tea and coffee and lemon cakes was a great pick me up after a long drive. Our reason for the visit was to hunt for clues to fill in the family tree. Months of planning could not have landed us in a better location. Pauline's knowledge of the surrounding area and her contacts in the community led us to information that would have taken us weeks to discover. Her enthusiasm and help made the visit a genealogy success. As a host, there can be none finer. As a home away from home, Killyliss Country House is a warm, beautifully appointed and comfortable destination. Breakfast was excellent, cooked to order and served in a lovely setting.
Just one caveat...do not take a chance like we did. Make your reservations to assure your place at this fine country home. You will not find nicer accommodations. ELFMore
