This was a warm and welcoming place located in such a pretty, remote area. I initially picked so we could go to Leap Castle, so spent one night there. Carmel and John were wonderful hosts, rooms were comfortable and clean. We brought in cheese and crackers and enjoyed a picnic in their sitting room. The weather was windy and rainy so we weren't out and about too much. We had traditional Irish breakfasts and it was delicious! Carmel called the owner to Castle Leap to make sure he was there and let him know we would be driving over. We enjoyed our stay there and the hospitality!

A welcoming accommodation in a warm family home. I received wonderful service and many useful suggestions about my holiday and could wish for no more to add to the enjoyment of my time at The Ring.
