Sile and Vincent Gorman's guest house and restaurant is perched over the cliffs on the western tip of the Slea Head peninsula near Ballydavid, with bracing walks starting from the doorstep. The beauty of the rugged coastline, rhythm of the sea and the sun going down on Smerwick Harbour can be enjoyed over a delicious dinner in the smart dining room. The menu includes produce from the garden, local seafood and lamb. The bedrooms, with breathtaking views of the ocean or mountains, are comfortably proportioned and thoughtfully equipped; the ground-floor rooms are adapted for the less mobile.
