From the moment we arrived we were treated like royalty. Gertie was making her fabulous brown bread as we entered her lovely warm kitchen. She showed us to our room as Pat put the kettle on for our tea. The room was delightful. Clean, comfortable and very tastefully decorated. Before dinner we were given a fantastic cocktail made from elderberry juice and white wine. We sat in their lovely garden and enjoyed the peace and quiet. Our hosts joined us and Pat thrilled us with a history of the area. If anyone can tell a story he can. We decided to have dinner there as my sister had stayed there a couple of months before and she told me that Gertie's food was out of this world. The three course meal was absolutely delicious. Gertie is a pro in the kitchen. From the Zucchini Roulade to the Chicken Pascal and finishing with her Rhubarb Tart, our tastebuds were not disappointed. I woke up the next morning refreshed after a lovely nights sleep. What can I say about breakfast....well I'll never forget the oatmeal, brown sugar, whiskey and freshly whipped cream. I can still taste it. I bought a bottle of Powers whiskey in the airport as I knew I would have to duplicate it when I got home. All in all, we had a wonderful time at Kilcannon House Bed & Breakfast and when I return in two years time with my family I will definately stay with Pat and Gertie again.
