We travelled around Ireland for 3 weeks, staying at B&Bs, so we have a very good basis for comparison. Eugene and Geradine understand completely how to run their establishment to provide maximum enjoyment for their guests. Everything was terrific, the rooms, their helpfulness and knowledge and the breakfasts are amazing. My sister, who was travelling with us, was a return guest and we were all treated as if we were long lost family. Magherafelt is the ideal base to explore this part of Ireland and we were so pleased we had booked in to Laurel Villa for 3 nights. A bonus was, thanks to Eugene and Geradine, that we have a whole new appreciation of Irish literature and history. Highly recommended.
