Our hosts, Ken and Mary, are fabulous people and if you like humour in general, you will appreciate Ken's high sense of "Irish humour" and generosity. Breakfast is a memorable moment as guests are treated like VIPs and Mary's operating in the kitchen offers the best that can be found at home. Will definitely go back there to carry on...

Decided to book the Annexe as we were going to be in and out seeing old friends. What a great choice we made. Own front door didn't have to worry about getting in late and disturbing other guests.
