Brilliant b & b. Brilliant hosts. Luxurious room exquisitely decorated and exceptionally clean. Excellent en-suite. Most beautiful Irish breakfast - especially the crispy potato bread. Barbara and Bill go above and beyond the call of duty eg: dropped us down to the wedding venue and picked us up again at midnight!!! Highly recommend. Great fun.
