Good Hotel Guide Review
‘I had an excellent stay.’ In a ‘dramatically beautiful’ setting on the Wild Atlantic Way, Frances Kelly-McSweeney’s hotel wins praise for its ‘comfortable’ rooms, its ‘local and freshly prepared’ meals and its ‘cosy’ atmosphere. The team of young, local staff is appreciated. ‘Frances is permanently in place.’ The long, seaward conservatory is an ideal place to sit over drinks or coffee, while gazing out over Bunatrahir Bay. ‘There are books scattered around; binoculars available; it is totally tranquil,’ writes a guest this year. Bedrooms have antique furniture and original features; most have sea views. In a series of small dining rooms, the tables are set with white linens at dinner. A trained chef, the Ballycastle-born hostess cooks a small, daily-changing menu of modern Irish dishes, perhaps ‘moderate’ portions of grilled prawns; local cod with a Parmesan crust. At breakfast, find a ‘good pick-and-mix’ buffet with fresh sliced fruits, porridge, smoked salmon; ‘excellent’ bacon; ‘very good’ bread. Enniscrone and Carne golf clubs are 40 minutes’ drive away; a number of coastal walks are easily accessible. (Richard Parish)
