We wanted to see a lot of Ireland's west and couldn't have picked a better place to stay. The family was charming, the home was quaint, the beds comfortable and breakfast was custom tailored to our wants. Advise was freely given and always worth checking out.
A truly wonderful experience and Matilda and Ann made us feel at home. Rooms are well kept and spacious. Beds were SO comfortable. Breakfast was delicious. Try Matilda's homemade scones and brown bread. I would absolutely stay here again!
Stayed here with Matilda and Anne for 5 nights. They are full of knowledge and genuinely interested in making sure you have the best visit to Ireland you can. Breakfasts are delicious and tailored to you. Will miss them but look forward to coming back in the future.
We have enjoyed two nights with Ann and Matilda. The farm is close enough to Ennis to slip in for a meal but far enough away to enjoy the peace of the farm. The rooms are well appointed and the en-suite bathrooms lovely. There is a major road behind the property at a distance, but you hear nothing and I personally enjoyed watching the traffic at times. What made our stay was being looked after by Ann and Matilda. Breakfast was delicious and tasty, kept us going all day. Nothing was too much trouble, information about places to see, our hot water thermos prepared for a coffee on the road and inquiring about a day, their interest and care was great. Highly recommended.
Enjoyed our stay here while tracing family origins nearby, O'Hallorans as it happens. Easy to find. Sparkling clean accommodation and very welcoming hosts, especially Matilda. One of the tidiest farms we saw in our travels and we said so. So very very pleased we bumped into Matilda's father as we were leaving. Once we explained the purpose of our visit he directed us to a graveyard not far from the intersection where Norrie Henchys bar is and as promised it had plenty of O'Hallorans in it. I'm still working on the connections, if any, to our family tree but after meeting a representative from the Ireland Reaching Out website later that day who introduced us to a woman who is my husbands 3rd cousin I wouldn't be at all surprised if there is a connection to the Elmdale O'Hallorans. Thanks for making our trip even more special Matilda. Carol…
