From the moment we drove up the driveway, we were awestruck by the stunning beauty. Being in the woods by the lake was a nice change from the wide open country. Every window you look out of has a spectacular view. The lodge is immaculate and so spacious! The bedrooms are huge. Our room had a four poster bed and a loveseat, bathroom clean and modern (many B & B's have ancient plumbing and fixtures) with toiletries included.
Meals were perfect, simple and filling, just the ticket when traveling on the road and doing a lot of driving. Our hostess was also helpful with resources around the area. She had menus from local restaurants, and ideas on sites to see. Our itinerary had been up ended as a result of a change in our reservations. We had to leave a previous B & B a night early and the stay there was quite traumatic. Aideen was super helpful with ideas for alternative sights to see. She suggested taking the train to Dublin for the day. We took her advice, and what a perfect day we had! My husband got a day off from driving and we got to see Dublin without all the hassles. All in all, we got the best of both worlds-modern amenities and professionalism of a fine hotel with the warm intimacy of a well run B & B.
