Sincere thanks for your high praise in the review. We were delighted to have met you and enjoyed our chats together - it's what makes doing B & B interesting for us and I know it's of benefit to our visitors too as they learn more about the pleasures of exploring East Clare. We hope we meet again in the...

Traveling with no reservations can be a nightmare, Ursula and Joel took us in just at dusk after we had traveled all day. They handed us a key and bade us welcome, then had to run out to a community meeting about a bird that was nesting nearby for the first time in like 100 years. Later when they returned...

Thanks so much for your review - May seems so long ago I'm delighted to thought enough of us to put up a lovely review. Our poor resident White Tailed Sea Eagles didn't produce a chick this year for the first time in years so we are hoping that 2017 will be more fruitful for them! Noel loves the farming...

A sound sleep in a firm bed. A hot shower. Fresh coffee. Fresh tea. Cold milk and plenty of cereal choices. Just what's needed the morning after...

Thanks very much, I'm laughing at your unusual style of review - very refreshing and fantastic & God bless your appetite, you did a great job of polishing off most of that omelette (nice of you to keep a bit for the dogs!).

Hi Annette, I am so disappointed to read your review as not once during your stay with us did you mention anything about not being happy with any part of your bedroom, had you done so we could have done something to improve your experience.

On our weeklong trip around the country we stayed in a few B&Bs and this one was by far my favorite! We were traveling with a group, and we were welcomed warmly!

What a lovely place to stay. Clean, cosy, friendly and totally relaxing. The family made me feel so welcome - nothing was too much trouble. The breakfast set me up for the day - fresh, local produce, home made bread and peppermint tea! Good value for money. I would certainly recommend staying here. Thank you Ursula and Noel.
