Such a magical place...

We stayed here one night, we stayed in a lavender room. The house was very friendly, clean and well kept. We ended up taking a taxi to blarney for dinner and had no issues with help calling for a taxi. All around awesome. Would definitely stay longer next time.

My first Ireland B and B and the bar was set to high for any other to contend. The owners are very warm the food incredible and the grounds stunning. Bring some apples for the horses and drift back in time here.

We loved this place! The grounds are fabulous; the home is like a museum. The rooms are uniquely beautiful and the owners are friendly and helpful. I highly recommend this place. Our biggest mistake was staying only one night due to our tight schedule.

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay here during August 2016. Olwen is a most delightful host. Our room was gorgeous and the breakfast deliciously served in a charming garden room. We would love to come again!
