I can't say enough about Carole and Kevin's generosity and constant efforts to give us a warm, truly authentic experience in Ireland. They both went out of their way to arrange activities and provide suggestions on how to experience the beautiful area that that they clearly love. The grand old house is very special and gave us all the feeling that we actually lived there, whether sitting at the plank table in the country kitchen or lounging in the sitting room with family portraits and a turf fire flickering, or snuggled into the plush beds upstairs reading one of the scores of beautiful books scattered throughout the house. This seemed to be the real Ireland, a true experience of living in a house with a rich, interesting history.
We were a party of couples and friends, and the house provided sufficient privacy as well as opportunity for group activities and interaction.
Thanks, Carole and Kevin, for a lovely 8 days!
