We booked the Cairbre House having read other reviews and we were not disappointed. The location was beautiful and a pleasant 15 minute walk into the town centre. Brian was a wonderful host who greeted us with genuine warmth. He immediately made a lovely pot of tea with biscuits and provided them whilst we sat in his gorgeous Rose Garden. The room was lovely and the views were terrific. The breakfast the following morning was out of this world in relation to quality and presentation, he had picked some of the herbs from his own garden that morning. We stayed in Ireland for a week and I wished I had more time at the Cairbre, it really is a lovely comfortable and clean place with a terrific host and the views made it so relaxing. There was also a range of restaurants and Pubs to chose from, we dined in Quealys and that was also very good.
