We stayed in the post Christmas and into new year period. The house has lots of character and roomy. It was winter and wet so we didn't make use of the walled garden but it would be great in summer. And it being winter it took a while to get the house warmed up but once the two fires got going it was very cosy. Shower a little tempramental but there is also a bath. Nice touch for landlady to have put up a Christmas tree and have left a DVD of 'Elf'. Castle Ward fabulous , and Cuan bar/restraunt great - if a little expensive.
