From seeing the show "At your Service" I was expecting a bit more from the dinning experience. The food was average at best and the service wasn't great., however the views of Killary Harbor in the dinning room were fantastic. There were a few regulars dinning that night and they seemed to get all the service. The waitress was very short with us as if she didn't have any time despite there only being four tables seated. I had the muscles and they were a let down for sure. There was a very strong taste of the see off them and they weren't completely cleaned from the seaweed. For the main I had the scallops and then were decent. The other main we had was the poached chicken which was average, but we weren't expecting much as there specialty was seafood.
The room was average and I am not sure that the bed was totally clean. I am not a fan of beds that only have a fitted sheet and a duvet. I would like a flat sheet, unless you are going to guarantee me that the duvet cover is washed after each guest.
Breakfast the following morning was average.
Leenaun was a fantastic spot and not to be missed. You can probably get another B&B of the same quality for €35 pp instead of €50 as it was here.
I neglected to mention the picture of a horses head above the bed. huh?? Have they not seen the Godfather?
