His breakfast creations are delicious, made with fresh ingredients and garnished with fresh flowers. We enjoyed several different outside areas for viewing the estuary and its wildlife.

Brian, our host, is just a minefield of information - which led us to a very enjoyable evening in Minnies bar only a few minutes walk away. Decor in this house is what you would expect from such a historical building but it...

We stayed in Cairbre House a few years ago. We went back last week and it is still as lovely. Brian is a great host and the gardens were as lovely in Spring as they had been in late summer. The setting is very peaceful but only a few minutes walk to the town.
