Travellers Joy is an absolute delight. Our room was spacious and comfortable, and the gardens really are astounding. We spent treasured moments wandering through the yard, taking in the sights and smells of the many plants and flowers. Gertie directed us toward Blair's Inn for dinner, and we were delighted with the experience. After dinner, Gertie indulged us with conversation in the sitting room of her cozy home. She really is a delightful woman with a friendly smile and a calming presence. We had our best night's sleep in Ireland that night, and breakfast in the morning was lovely. An added bonus (as if that were necessary) is the close proximity of Travellers Joy to Blarney Castle. We were able to enjoy a leisurely breakfast, pack, receive a friendly goodbye from our hosts, and still make it to the Castle before the gates opened; we were the fifth and sixth people admitted that morning.

Gertie and Sean were spectacular hosts for our one night in the area. Mom's luggage was lost and Gertie was there to accept delivery before we arrived. The rooms were outstanding and the garden is so lovely and inviting. Gertie let us know we could walk down to the local pub for refreshments and something to eat. She was also spot-on when she suggested we get to Blarney Castle early in the morning before the busses arrived. Breakfast was outstanding and we surely wished we were staying for more than one night. Thank you for the warm hospitality
