We are thrilled to have been listed by Jillian Bolger in the Irish Independent last week as one of ten restaurants and pubs where you can stay overnight in Ireland. The list appeared in the popular Saturday Weekend Magazine and included luminaries such as Lagom in Kenmare and the well-known seafood restaurant The King Sitric in Howth.
It’s true. We really do love dogs and are happy to welcome them to stay; we often have a well behaved dog or two in residence. A weekend in early April took us by surprise though when no less than five handsome and well behaved dogs checked in with their owners. That was totally unprecedented and then we discovered why - they were taking part in the dog show at Roscommon Racecourse.
