My husband and I spent 2 nights at the Stone House and absolutely enjoyed it. Comfortable room, excellent breakfasts (with great choices, including Dutch pancakes), and terrific sightseeing advice for the full day in Baltimore (ferry to Cape Clear Island) and on our way toward Kenmare. Also terrific dinner recommendations.
