"Beware of the ghost. He's supposed to reside in the old section but my wife saw him in the hallway of the new section in the early morning as we were checking out."

"Stayed there in a February so it was pretty cold and blustery for fishing but had a fun time with the ghillie on Lough Corrib anyway. There were other obvious fishing opportunities on the Cong River - yes, maybe fall in at the same spot as Father Lonegan in "The Quiet Man"
Top it all off with an elegant dinner and singing in the dungeon bar.
I don't know if Brendan is leading the sing-a-long anymore but according to him he relinquished the spotlight to John Denver one night who treated the audience to most of his repertoire.
A great place and a magical stay- cannot be beat.
