Ella M, March 2018
Breakfast was a huge selling point as we're veggie/ pescetarian and the choice is huge - this isn't normally the case.
TravelerWithNotebook, May 2018
The food is world class, with a very full menu offered and prepared by a highly experienced, creative chef and served on beautifully set tables.
Joanne Hughes, April 2018
The breakfast is divine, do yourself a favour and try everything on the menu if you can, you won’t be disappointed. I recommend the Baked eggs. All the ingredients are locally sourced and fresh.
Andrew C, March 2018
The breakfasts were a highlight, I particularly enjoyed the home made bagels!
Rockin_RR, March 2018
It has everything you need, from spacious, comfortable clean rooms, great location, and an extensive breakfast selection that is ample and absolutely delicious.

Breakfast had an extensive menu and was superb. Everyone must try the porridge. Wonderful!!!
Trevor14, April 2019
The breakfast room led off the very nicely furnished guests' lounge and an open fire was burning as I enjoyed my splendid breakfast. You choose your main breakfast dish the night before, from a menu that caters for vegetarians as generously as it caters tor meat-eaters. Freshly-squeezed orange juice is served and there's a fine selection of cereals, fruits and yogurt. I had a plate of delicious smoked salmon with scrambled eggs on my first morning and shredded duck on baked eggs with herbs the next morning. Various Irish breads are available and my coffee was excellent.
Gerard Jones, February 2018
Loved breakfast, the food was amazing, freshly cooked and they tailored it to what I specifically wanted.

Hubby tells me his Ulster breakfast was his best ever cooked breakfast so very high praise. My scrambled eggs and salmon were delicious and we both enjoyed the home made soda bread and toast.
Judi G, May 2018
