Good Hotel Guide Review

Guests are welcomed with tea or coffee and home-baked biscuits at the Mernagh family’s farmhouse B&B beside a 15th-century fortified tower house. This is very much a lived-in and loved home, a place to relax and unwind, perhaps with a glass of wine from the honesty bar. The styling is traditional, with some cherished period pieces, including an antique grandfather clock. There are six house bedrooms, on the first and second floors. Two more, at ground level in the courtyard, have been newly renovated this year. All have spring water from the artesian well, magazines and electric blankets. The views are of the gardens, the working dairy farm and the countryside, with some distant glimpses of the coast. Breakfast brings a wide choice of buffet and cooked dishes, home-baked soda bread and scones, pancakes, a full Irish with black and white pudding, eggs from the hens, honey from the hives, fruit from the garden. Guests can explore the farm, climb the tower, play croquet, tennis, footgolf on the 15-hole course, or try their hand on the driving range.
