Highly recommend.
Our stay was excellent. The room was presented lovely and extreamily clean, the hostess was delightful to talk to and seemed more than happy to help with anything we would require. The breakfast in the morning was delicious (I had the full Irish and my partner had the porridge). A truly lovely experience from check in to check out.
