From the very moment we arrived, we were ushered in with huge welcoming and friendliness. Our hosts really couldnt do enough for us, and before we knew it we were sat down with a cuppa and looking at all these leaflets and travel information with Dolores. Every morning we woke to a delicious breakfast- with a huge choice to choose from! We were made hot water bottles on cold nights, flasks of tea on cold days and hot drinks whenever we wanted. Dolores booked us a taxi and bus tours and a table on new years eve- she's always happy to help. Gary also drove us down to the lovely local bars and restaurants, which are about a 10 minute walk down the road.
The bed and breakfast itself was clean, smelt nice and had many facilities- including wifi, tea and coffee in room, guest use fridges, massage chairs, chill out room. Our bedroom was not one of the themed rooms, but non the less just right for us. The bed was comfy (and made really nicely daily), the views of the surrounding countryside were great to wake up to, and the bathroom suited us just right.
As for local tourism, the Castle and Folk Park is a must. We left it until the end of our trip- but really didnt expect the 26 acre 'village' and 'medival houses' - very fun and you can sped a whole day there. The pubs and restaurants were delicious, and we ate out every night. Our favourite was The Creamery - where, on our last night, we met Dolores and Gary who bought us a drink! Just a short bus journey away is Ennis and Limerick- which we loved spending the day out. However, the bus service wasnt too frequent and were left waiting in the cold for a while. Finally, the tour to the Cliffs of Moher (that Dolores persevered and managed to book us on) with stops along the way was highly interesting! Our guide, Joe, was very knowledgeable and it was fascinating. A well spent day out!
On our final night (we stayed 6 nights), we were left some luxury biscuits and a small bottle of champagne- which ended our memorable holiday.
It was sad to leave and I am honestly over the moon we chose this B&B over the others (we saw some of them on our various trips)- it made our holiday what it was.
The location - perfect for a quiet getaway but close enough for adventures.
The service - second to none.
The holiday - one of the best.
