"Amazing five star hotel"
Although set back off the main roadway requiring traversing a very narrow road to reach it, this place was a priceless gem. What a beautiful setting in this restored castle. We were greeted by porters, one who parked our car valet style, and another who escorted us in a golf cart with our luggage to our room. The room was spacious and amazing.
Their pub and restaurant was incredible. After afternoon drinks in their Gallery pub, we also chose to have our dinner there rather than the formal restaurant. We had a delightful dinner every bit as fine as if we had gone to their restaurant. We both had their Hake fish for dinner and it was delicious. I also had their superb seafood chowder.
We then went and sat in an adjacent room with fireplace where we met and conversed with two separate Irish couples. Great conversation and friendship. When we were about to return to our room, we heard music from the downstairs pub. We went down and there was a musician playing all manners of songs and he continued without a break for three hours. It was wonderful and the place was packed. We greatly enjoyed our stay there and would highly recommend it to anyone travelling in the area.
