I really enjoyed my stay with Margaret She was very friendly and kind and made sure I had everything I needed .The room was very comfortable and clean and the property is very central and easy to find . Thanks Margaret for making me feel at home Ciara
Myself & my parents stayed with Margaret during our holiday to Ireland, she was very friendly host, willing to advice on places to visit & eat. The rooms were clean & comfortable, which is always nice at the end of a busy sightseeing day. Would defiantly stay again if I visit Ireland in the future, until then best wishes and thank you for helping to find a doctor for my mum. Tina.
Enjoyable stay. Margaret is a friendly and very attentive host.
