Carmel was wonderful. The breakfast was first class. However, whether it was culture shock or not we were in a group of 4 and we didn’t get the same type of room. And one room had NO PRIVATE bath in the same room. We had to bathe down the hall. Everything else was lovely but it wasn’t what we thought we had reserved.

Lovely place. My new bride and I stayed there on one night of our honeymoon and it was delightful. If you're someone who appreciates communication skills, Carmel has them. She texted me the day before our arrival and asked if we could check in later than 6:00 pm as she had some errands to run. It worked out perfectly as we could do all the things we wanted to do in town before they all closed. It was perfect. She was a delightful host and the Irish Breakfast in the morning was delicious. Thank you for everything!!!

Great location close to town, but not too close. It was peaceful and quiet, and breakfast was great. Carmel was a wonderful host.
