Its our heavenly bolt hole and we were back again last weekend, for probably our sixth or seventh time. Nothing thankfully changes from Mary's welcome to the excellent food prepared by Eoin and Judith and served up by Ina. Try the lambs kidney's or scollop's as starters. Beautiful !!

Top class food is only part of it. Hanora's welcome is legendary..they can't do enough for you, whether it's hiking routes or other activities, the staff are helpful and friendly. And it's set in one of the most picturesque areas of the south. A must-visit place to go.

We had a lovely room (#10) which we would recommend to anyone thinking of staying. Dinner,... More
