Good Hotel Guide Review

The perfect base for exploring the Wild Atlantic Way and the Burren’s dramatic karst landscape, the Sheedy family’s farmhouse has been welcoming guests since the 1930s. Third-generation owners John and Martina Sheedy are professional hosts, she front-of-house, he as chef. ‘A lovely welcoming place to stay. Martina is so hospitable,’ say readers. Bedrooms have a traditional elegance, with antique pieces and a soft palette, and include home-made biscuits and an espresso machine. Modern bathrooms have an over-bath power shower. You can take tea by the fire in the sitting room, sample whiskeys in the bar, relax in the sunroom. John, who has worked in a Michelin-starred kitchen, uses locally fished, farmed and foraged produce, home-grown vegetables and herbs, in dishes such as roast rack of Burren lamb or pan-fried fillet of Atlantic hake 
with crab risotto. The ‘excellent breakfasts’ are a 
feast: deluxe porridge, crepes, the full Irish with 
‘my personal favourite, Clonakilty white pudding’. 
At close of day, take a short drive to the Cliffs of Moher to watch the sun go down on Galway Bay. ‘We would happily return.’ (Sara Hollowell)

Comments about Sheedy’s

Well maintained, well run. Martina is a gifted hostess through and through, personal, attentive in every respect, training her staff to be equally so. The food was excellent., served in generous portions and using local ingredients. - EH - May 2018
