    Au coeur de l'Irlande rurale, Ray soigne l'accueil et donne à son domicile d'être un havre de paix. En peu de temps, nous avons appris sur l'histoire locale récente et ancienne. Accueil simple, généreux, profondément humain.

    Ray was sweet and very welcoming! We instantly became friends. His place is beautiful, peaceful, clean, and relaxing. The only downside was that we only had one night to stay...we wish we could have extended our time there longer. Ray was accommodating and took plenty of time to share information about Ireland and things to do in the area. I cannot recommend this place enough. If you like peace and a quiet getaway, this is definitely the place to book for a lovely vacation! Can't wait to visit again! Thanks RAY :)
