Invited to join the Halloween Medieval Banquet in the Courtmacsherry Hotel, I thought what a great escape for me and time out! And it lived up to my expectations, away from the madding crowd!
The warm welcome from Canis the RM, lovely and chatty, he gave all the local information of where to go and what to do. Ellen & Billy the young couple who own the property were so warm, down to earth family people. They are working to really well continue the development of this historic property, the holiday homes and caravanning park.
Greeted by two Medieval Guards on Horseback, it set the scene for a super night. A big warm open fire, music in the background and a lovely hum from happy customers, eating in the lounge as I arrived.
We had a wonderful medieval banquet prepared by Garry, the creative chef and his team. The Chefs came out to greet us all. Lots of fun and banter. Great food, with lots of great taste, simply prepared to give the best flavours which so many places destroy with too much going on the plate these days. But then its West Cork so only the best meats and veggies sourced here. Well done to the team!
After the banquet was over, the theatrics were fun outside with Billy and his crew! Great music and dancing went on into the wee hours!
Next morning after a tasty hearty breakfast, I went for a wonderful walk through the forest and onto the beach. Where would you get it in the world! Certainly a rejuvenation of my soul!
Simple, homely and warm is how I would describe my visit. Certainly less is more in this great place. A lovely place to take your partner for a little escape in Winter! A real fun and safe place in Summer with Children. Enjoy this tranquil place winter or summer!
