“My husband and I had the luck to spend a few days here last week, visiting from the US for a road trip around Ireland, and it was a high point of our entire trip. We spent our days walking in the park, and our evenings playing Scrabble in the sitting room by the fire with a pint or a cup of tea. The breakfast in the morning is delicious and abundant and the breakfast room overlooks a field full of deer, songbirds and butterflies. Everyone is so friendly, we felt immediately welcomed. Our room was comfortable, with a big soft bed, and spotless, and had a beautiful view of the park. We are already planning a return trip – thanks.”
