Gem of a spot to stay located right in the middle of The Burren with views on all sides. A perfect place to relax and explore the area with a very welcoming couple owning and running it. Buildings and grounds are gorgeous.

The owners were so very friendly and the sitting areas were quaint and cozy. We had a room conveniently located next to the main building. The fresh spring water fountain was great for bringing fresh water back to the room. Breakfast was great. Would definitely come back next time we are in the area.

Wolfgang and Maria were extremely hospitable and cordial. The place is so relaxing and quiet, perfect for getting away from the noise and stress of a large city. Only missing thing is a sauna 😀
