Run by husband and wife Paddy and Jane Howe, this lovely house has two guests bedrooms to let. As soon as you enter this comfortable and spacious townhouse you see all manner of lovely pieces of art - ceramics, paintings, wall hangings, and more. The guest rooms are on the first floor as is the small guest shower room/toilet. Hot water was available throughout our visit. Our room had two single beds, a wardrobe, dressing table, and easy chair. It also had a small washbasin. There were tea and coffee making facilities in the room and Paddy brought fresh milk and tea bags just after we arrived.The beds were warm and comfortable, the room clean and nicely furnished. The area was peaceful and quiet so we got a great night's sleep. Paddy and Jane are experts on the local area and gave us an excellent street map, pointing out the quickest route into town. They also gave advice on local eateries. Breakfast was cooked and served by Paddy; a choice of cereals followed by a cooked Irish breakfast (Paddy makes sure everything is cooked just as you like it!) - sausages, eggs, bacon, beans - and the most delicious soda bread! After that there was toast with jam or marmalade. And the freshly made coffee was great!The rooms do not have a television set but guests may use the one in the lounge downstairs. Guests can also sit in the delightful garden when the weather permits (our December visit did not allow this).Prices are as follows per person:Single - 40 euros/night (including breakfast)Double/twin - 30 euros/night (including breakfast)Situated only a ten minute walk into town (fifteen minutes uphill coming back), this lovely option is to be recommended. Comfortable and homely with real Irish hospitality!
