Had the pleasure of staying at The Old Bank, Bruff for 4 nights as a base for researching family history and exploring the West of Ireland.
I don't know whether we met Ireland's answer to a famous television personality in the hotel inspection business, as Miriam has the same passion and drive for not only her beautiful Bed and Breakfast, but for her family and country.
It was true to say that we were made to feel extremely welcome and encouraged to come and go as we pleased.
The breakfast aspect was a good start to the day and a menu gave you the option to select alternatives to the substantial 'Full Irish'.
Our room, was of a good size and was very well appointed with, a very comfortable double bed, furnished in lovely cotton sheets, bed spread and fleece.
A dressing table with hair dryer. Ample hanging space and trouser press.
The bathroom had everything you'd expect of a quality hotel, let alone a B&B.
This in addition to good quality towels (changed daily), a shower that delivered a constant source of hot water and a jacuzzi bath.
Our stay passed all to quickly and could easily say that we were sad to leave.
Would we stay again if we were in that part of the world. DEFINITELY!
Thank You Miriam for a wonderful stay.
