We spent 3 night here as part of our honeymoon and I think it's still the best food I have had in Ireland. The house has a lovely vibe- really nice furniture and comfortable surrounds. The room was beautiful and looked out to the ever-changing bitten landscape. The staff were great and we can't wait to go back. Even if... More

We stopped here for afternoon tea on a whim. Beautiful grounds with a marvelous view of the Burren. This place is a step up and the two ladies sitting having tea were a joy to talk to - this is the way Ireland is. You strike up a conversation with fellow patrons and the locals are super helpful and friendly.... More

We stayed here for two nights to celebrate a "significant" birthday! It was the perfect choice. The house & accommodation are extremely comfortable, the staff are friendly & professional and the food is simply sensational. The dinner was the best we have had in Ireland for many years. Looking forward to a return visit soon.

Truly a 5 star fine dining experience. We had to make reservations well in advance and dress up a bit. I loved the wood pigeon, and our vegetarian traveling companions had no trouble as they eat seafood. Take your time over a fine meal.
