WOW...WOW...WOW absolutely love this B&B!!! Aideen was such a lovely host...making you feel very comfortable. She had a couple of recommendations for supper. We went to JP restaurant which was our favorite supper in Ireland. We absolutely loved our room with the canopy bed and the softest most comfortable bed ever!! Felt like staying in a Castle room!! The room was so spacious!! The breakfast was wonderful with many selections to choose from. Thanks, Aideen for such a wonderful nights stay!!! HIGHLY recommend this B&B!!!

Our stay was nice. The bed was comfortable. Hosts were friendly. The town was close by where we had dinner and went to a bar to hear live Irish music.

My husband and I had a wonderful visit to this B&B. The tea in the sun room looking out over the grounds and to the lake was breathtaking. The hosts were very pleasant and even shared some of their personal books about castles built in the area as we were researching our family history. This was actually our favorite part of Ireland. The countryside is beautiful here. My husband and I even got to meet the hosts' daughter who took wonderful care of us during breakfast. We very much enjoyed our conversation with her! Thank you for a wonderful visit!

Aideen and Martin were wonderful hosts. The grounds of their home were beautiful and we enjoyed a cup of tea while sitting outside watching the animals. Our room was absolutely beautiful with a canopy bed! We loved our time staying in their lovely home.
