Town Activities and Castle are wonderful!
As another review said, it is a little difficult to find if using GPS or Google Maps since there are 2 streets in the area with the same name...fortunately they're not too far apart. This street is the one closest to the large roundabout. Nice friendly older lady showed us to our room and how to sign up for breakfast choices. Employee (son?) seemed to be the caretaker / breakfast chef. Breakfast was good with cereal/juice/toast buffet and Full Irish breakfast as well. It is just like staying in someone's big house as a guest. Electrical issue with our room, so we could not use the tea pot (tripped the circuit). Caretaker (son?) was on top of it, but said there was a electrician coming in a couple days to sort it out. WiFi in our room was spotty. Town was only a 20 min short walk, but we drove and parked closer (outside the pay zone). Otherwise room seemed clean and comfortable.

Amazing B&B. Wonderful stay.
I cannot express how wonderful our stay was here. The owners were phenomenal. They walked us through all the must sees and catered to our every need. The night before we arrived we had an issue with our hotel and even though they were booked, they were more than willing to give recommendations and even called other places to find us a spot. Breakfast was delicious. The rooms were more than comfortable. Wifi was slightly spotty but worked for what we needed. I would stay there again in heartbeat and recommend it to anyone going to Ireland. The location required a 2km walk to downtown or a quick cab ride. Definitely worth it to stay there.

It was clean. Breaking was very good. Although the owner was away, the lady who greeted us was very friendly and helpful. She suggested Matt the Miller restaurant which was very good.
