Fodor's Review

Owner-chef Aidan McGrath has cooked at some of Ireland's leading hotels, but now runs his own 14-room hotel with his wife, Kate. The bar of the solid Victorian building is warm and welcoming, with an upright piano, original painted wood cladding, assorted wooden tables and bentwood chairs, cheerful cotton-check blinds and a random selection of bric-a-brac. Try a starter of Liscannor crab claws in garlic and chili butter, or pressed ham-hock terrine. The fish pie with poached fish and shellfish is a popular lunchtime item, as is the braised ox cheek with puree of roasted parsley root. At dinner braised rabbit is often among the daily specials, or opt for roast monk tail with braised short ribs. The rooms (from €90 B&B for two) are spacious and stylishly decorated in neutral tones with nice Victorian touches such as brass bedside lamps, and peaceful views of the countryside.
