This is the warm and welcoming home of the O'Sullivans and makes the ideal base for touring the wonderful Burren region and Galway Bay. The village has a number of craft shops and atmospheric pubs, most of which serve evening meals. Bedrooms are comfortably appointed, and the relaxing lounges include a sun room with reading material, guides and interesting pieces of original art. Breakfast is a delight – an array of fresh and poached fruits and local farmhouse cheeses followed by a selection of options, cooked to order by Pauline.
