This house, parts of which date back over 300 years is architecturally a bit of an oddity but as a B&B, I don't know that I've been to better. My room was the smallest in the house but would still be big enough for to sleep three in comfort in a double and a single. Spotlessly clean with all the amenities that a decent hotel would provide. I've never had a bed with a canopy before - pretty special.
As PWNomad said, the hosts were beyond gracious. Enough to say that I was nearly late for my conference in a nearby college as I spent a full hour at breakfast swapping anecdotes with the host. Breakfast started with a super buffet with all the cereals, fruit and breads you could wish for. Then the acid test... the 'Full Irish.' As with the Full English, The Full Scottish, Full Yorkshire, etc, these all aspire to be an Ulster Fry but normally fall far short. This one was pretty close to the real thing. Only fried bread instead of fried soda bread, potato bread and pancake let it down. A nice touch was baked beans in their own little separate ramekin. This allows the pagan boor to eat them or the sophisticated diner to move them to one side with a superior sniff that says, 'baked beans have no place at the breakfast table.' Well done the Castle.
4/5 for sleep quality was probably my own fault as I'm tall and the duvet was well tucked in and I couldn't be bothered to untuck the bottom and pull it up over my shoulders. I'm my own worst enemy.
