We have travelled a good amount through the world (eg: Kenya, Maldives, Goa, Bali, Florida to name a few), and whilst we have many places we would like to go again we never have because there are so many places left to visit - until now!
Never have we felt so comfortable, never so welcome (both by the owners and the Irish people), never so relaxed, never so much to do if we can drag ourselves away from 'home'. Add to that the view, the sound of the sea (Ceol Na Mara appropriately translates as music of the sea), places to eat and shop nearby but not on the doorstep, etc., and we found so much perfection that we have already decided to return next year, probably for 2 weeks.
I could write a whole chapter in praise but read all the other positive reviews - there is no need to repeat them they are all true and cover it well.
To be a genuine review it has to find a negative somewhere, so after much pondering I would say that the en-suite rooms are a bit small but that is about as nit-picking as you can get!
Things to do, places to go - in a week we only scratched the surface - magnificent scenery in all directions (we visited The Burren, Loop Head, Cliffs of Moher, all spectacular), horse riding, fishing, golf etc. etc, several towns around with varied shopping at reasonable prices, fuel for the car within 2 miles (Diesel cheaper than UK), Supermarkets, and above all restaurants. A warning though - if you want to go to a restaurant make very sure that you are hungry first - the helpings seem to cater for the USA market!
