Anne O''Regan is your hostess. She is wonderful and helpful. Breakfast in the morning is in the small but formal dining room where her breakfasts are cooked to order and the tea is especially wonderful. She told me her secret but I''ve forgotten it now. Drat!
The night I was there, I could hear the phone ringing in the hallway, all evening, with people looking for a last minute room. The next morning, Anne told us she filled up with the first calls, having to turn away the rest.
Along with the fact that this was a most charming B&B, it is in County Meath, right next to County Dublin - with the country''s main airport there only a half-hour away. As such, this B&B is located in an area that is a haven for tourists fleeing the bustle of Dublin and the high B&B prices associated with that busy tourist area - one of the reasons I stayed here in County Meath rather than County Dublin.
Like almost every other B&B I stayed in, I only paid, with a single supplement, from 20-25 punts a night (converted over, that''s like $25-30). I still can''t get over how little one pays for a room in Ireland, and not just a room, a great room in a great B&B, and with a great breakfast too! Unbelievable.
