Good Hotel Guide Review

There’s a ‘relaxed atmosphere’ and ‘a sense of lightness and warmth’ at Sheila Griffin’s ‘characterful’ B&B, in a heritage town between the Atlantic and the Twelve Bens. A cherry-red front door marks the spot; to the rear of the ‘attractive’ Georgian house, the ‘well-cared-for’ garden – ‘a rush of colour’ – slopes upwards. ‘Spacious’ sitting rooms full of books have ‘very comfortable’ sofas to sink into, and a ‘lovely’ peat fire in the evening. ‘There’s a family feel, with framed old pictures of the town, the house, and the family as it has grown over the years.’ Upstairs, the bedrooms are traditionally styled. ‘Our room had comfortable twin beds and excellent bedside lighting; a well-equipped tray with teas, instant coffee and biscuits, topped up daily. The narrow walk-in shower had lots of hot water.’ At a ‘marvellous’ breakfast, ingredients range from the local to the very local – much comes from the garden, its beehives and hens. (Special dietary requests are particularly well met, with advance notice.) Go beyond the full Irish for Connemara smoked salmon, home-baked brown bread and spiced fruit compote, then wash it all down with ‘the best coffee I’ve had in Ireland’.
