Good Hotel Guide Review

Built by a Spanish merchant in 1750 and, as you would guess, once home to the parish priest, this smart town-centre B&B has been run for more than 20 years by ‘likeable’ hosts Philip and Noreen McEvoy. ‘Charming and quirky’, with a ‘steep, narrow staircase’, it has interiors filled with family possessions, antiques, lamps, ornaments, in the manner of a private home. Two of the traditional bedrooms – iron and brass beds, wooden chests, neutral yet warm hues – have a balcony, one a roof garden, another a four-poster, some a whirlpool bath. The split-level, two-room penthouse suite with kitchenette has a claw-footed bath and spiral metal staircase. ‘Guests have the use of a small but comfortable sheltered patio.’ A reader enjoyed the ‘novel touch’ of the offer of cheese and wine in the late afternoon. Water is heated by solar panels, cleaning products are eco-friendly, all food and drink is organic and Fairtrade. An ‘excellent’ breakfast with a changing menu, cooked by Philip McEvoy, a professional chef, includes farmhouse cheeses, free-range eggs, the full Irish, a daily fish special, perhaps a hot, fruit-filled crêpe with maple syrup.
