Marquerite's was a very pleasant stay, starting with helping a couple of Americans to navigate through the early evening darkness. Her place was a very welcome respite, very comfortable and homey. Her recommendation for a restaurant was good, but we ended up at another place that was equally delicious. Breakfast the next morning was wonderful and hit the spot - almost got to see the great view of the meadows and pasturelands.

We just recently visited Ireland again this year. We stayed at Marguerites again. We just loved our visit this year. Our host was as always wonderful. She treated us to tea and snacks on our arrival and we talked about our travels and grand children. Her home was as wonderful as previous years we've visited. Our room was clean and very comfortable. The breakfast was so exquisite with a good selection to choose from. We will choose Marguerites everytime. We just enjoy how welcome we feel and like family each time we visit. We'll keep in touch soon.

Our two night visit to Marguerite's was very special. She made us feel incredibly welcome and made a big effort to make us feel at home. In fact, it was practically like returning to our own family home after a long time away. Literally so for one of us. Thank you Marguerite, I'm sure we'll be back again. 10/10. Don't muck around people! Book into Marguerite's, you won't regret it.

We enjoyed our visit to Ireland and to Marguerites, our host was wonderful. The breakfast and her home was exquisite. We stayed two nights and had a chance to get to visit a number of places Marquette suggested we visit. We were early to arrive and she was welcoming offering us tea. We engaged in great conversations as well. Our room was wonderful. We loved her suggestion for dinner, The Church was great food and beautiful surroundings. We will visit again next time in Ireland!
