What a treat to find such a welcoming place by accident. And in an area you return to regularly! Thanks for sharing this gem.

Lovely! "anam care" means soul friend. How is that for Kismet?

I've always love that china.


Mary Kastner

Such a deliteful story. It is indeed "a small world".continue to have a wonderful visit Nicole.



How wonderful you have a welcoming place to visit & relax with like-minded people when you're in Ireland! That original hotel reservation mixup was for a reason, don't you think?


so lovely!


WWht a beautiful place to stay!


I'm saving this post for future reference because Ireland is on my travel bucket list!

I would love to go to Ireland and stay at a lovely place like that. Sigh. I don't have your china pattern, but we were gifted the other china in your photo...the blue our wedding. I've had it put away. May have to get it out again. Maybe the B&B owner and I could be kindred spirits too!


Thanks for sharing, looks like a wonderful place to stay

If I ever get to Ireland, I'm checking with you first to remind me of the name of where you stayed, sounds wonderful. While you're in Ireland mode, on your return try re-reading The Thornbirds. I read it probably after the movie came out years ago, but I'm in my early 70's now, and it impacted me differently so many years later. I followed up that re-read with What Once was True, and its sequel Return to Robinswood by Jean Grainger. Enjoyable reading for extending your appreciation of traveling in Ireland. Have a great trip.
