We had a wonderful experience and Lil was more the accommodating. The beautiful views of the farm and animals made it a unique stay and a warm at home feeling. Our breakfast was very wonderful as the food kept coming! As we ate we watched all the beautiful birds at the feeder through the front window in dining area. We would go back again and again! Thank you Lil!

We very much enjoyed our 1 night stay at Cradog. Lil was kind and gracious. She even offered my mom a cup of tea when we arrived a little late in the evening, then spent some time chatting with her. The accommodations were comfortable and the breakfast was great. Thank you!

Our first B&B on our first trip to Ireland. What a delight! This was like being at home and made us so comfortable about our decision to stay in B&Bs around the country on our vacation! the accommodations are first class and Lil is as warm and helpful as can be. She made us relax and feel like family as opposed to simple guests! Definitely would stay here again!
