Elizabeth was an angel! We had such a lovely stay with her, Jim, and Charlie. The house and grounds are beautiful and you are treated like family. Elizabeth was so helpful in getting us there, giving us suggestions, and feeding us like royalty. We really enjoyed our time here!

Where do I even start. Jim and Elizabeth are now my favorite people. Lacey hasn't stopped talking about them since we left Ireland over a month ago. Everything about our stay was perfect. Elizabeth was so helpful, flexible with everything and even taught me a few life lessons. Since we were heading back to Dublin to catch a flight we only stayed here one night but wish we could have stayed longer. House was beautiful, breakfast was great, but the company was the best part. We are very hopeful to visit again in the future and after only 1 night consider Jim and Elizabeth our friends.

Elizabeth and her husband Jim were wonderful! Elizabeth communicated with me before we got there, and when we were there. She let us come early because we flew in very early, and she had the flexibility to do so on the day we arrived. We appreciated that so much. She met us, showed us to our rooms, and had freshly baked scones with tea and coffee. She gave us lots of information on a great place to have dinner, where to park in town, and other suggestions. Then she told us to take a nap…which we proceeded to do. The breakfast the next day was amazing! We had the full Irish breakfast, and she had made fresh brown bread as well. She then gave us directions for the best way out of town, as well as some great sites to see on our way to our next stop. Our first day in Ireland was indeed made very special with her care and hospitality! We felt at home from the start, and my whole family thoroughly enjoyed everything about our stay at her B&B. If we visit Ireland again, we would definitely stay with she and her husband! I HIGHLY recommend staying at her home. Thank you so much for the wonderful way you took care of us all! If there were 11 stars, this B&B and hostess and host would definitely receive them from us.
