Rain didn't put a damper on this terrific experience! Sep 16, 2008
This place was idyllic. While we were here, it poured rain constantly so we had to make the most of the muddy, wet weather. When we came in from the wet, we were greeted by several warm, crackling fires to choose from as well as a gracious bar that served up the whiskey my husband was quickly becoming fond of.

The corner room we had was spacious and well lit by several windows. There were plenty of comfortable seating options for us to eat our in-room Irish breakfasts, read the paper, and gaze out at the lovely garden. The bathroom was probably pretty perfect because I didn't make note of any complaints. I'm a big bathroom person, by the way.

We were in great luck that they also housed one of the best restaurants for a well-orchestrated dinner. It was one of my top 3 dining experiences in all of Ireland (that list includes several upscale Castles). The 3 kinds of foie gras -- incredible.

The service was fine here. Everything happened on time and in a friendly manner. While we didn't get the same personalized hospitality that we received at Ballinalacken Castle House Hotel in Doolin, we loved everything else so much that we changed plans in order to extend our stay.

Honestly, I think it was the food that kept us captivated! It was hard to leave this charming place.
