"This is a "Music House""
Mike and Catherine as well as their daughter are musicians, Mike also teaches Gaelic, and there is always traditional music somewhere in the house. The rooms are fine and well kept and the breakfast are very good. Mike is extremely helpful in offering suggestions and if your lucky you may catch he and Catherine along with other members of a band playing locally. The B & B is a little off the way but well worth the drive. Part of the great experience is just talking with Mike Read less
Likes:

Dislikes:
No.
Response from Teach an Cheoil:

Likes:
The freedom that the owner offered us from the start. We were allowed to enter and leave the house at any time. The tranquility that represents being in the countryside, but not far from the village.

Hi Andreu, I hope you have many more pleasant adventures!
