The Best Experience Ever

"Beautiful island, nice walks, deserted beaches. New hotel owners have renamed the hotel Sherkin House. €140 per couple with good Irish breakfast & orange juice. Also cornflakes & muesli. No decaf coffee. No fruit. We stay here every year. Rooms are basic but clean. We had a bath. No TV or wifi in bedroom. Nice views. I found it thanks to the real estate search engine"
