“Maureen’s bed and breakfast was a delightful experience for us Americans and our Belfast friend. Maureen immediately made us feel welcome and relaxed, like visiting a friend. Her beautiful garden gleamed in the sunny warm weather that we were fortunate to experience. The rooms are comfortable, well-equipped and have beautiful views of the sea. Breakfast was so Irish and delicious. We felt quite pampered and will never forget our visit.”
“We had a wonderful couple of nights at Mount Edward Lodge in September. Our room was great, evening spent in the lovely garden while my husband serenaded us with his bagpipes was special. Maureen’s breakfasts were outstanding and her tips for sightseeing just the best. What a great base for discovering the beauty of the Sligo countryside. We’d recommend this spot to absolutely everyone thinking of travelling to this part of the world.”
