    “We could not fault the property at ...”
    We could not fault the property at all- the peace and quiet surrounding the house was unbelievable. I loved everything about this part of Ireland the warmth and kindness of the Irish people and the beautiful Lough Key was definitely a trip you must take. I would go back tomorrow!
