    Our 2 nights here were exceptional. Dinner was well worth it for 1 of our nights and breakfasts were great. The local castle tour made the stay truly memorable. We highly recommend. Friendly owners, good clean rooms.

    Fabulous food, lovely accommodations and quaint, lovely atmosphere. Be sure to take the tour of the castle located on property! A little off the beaten path but worth the drive. Close to Doolin and Cliffs of Moher.
