  • Golfing Ireland
    "Kathleen O'Regan-Sheppard is a charming, intelligent woman whose boundless energy and graciousness fill her house with warmth and personality. Personal attention is her hallmark and people return year after year to be treated to her special brand of hospitality."

    "Few details escape the watchful eye of the owner, yet every guest is made to feel as though he or she is an old friend spending the night in a splendid private home. She's only got sixteen rooms, so book early because she's almost always filled to capacity, especially in July, August and September."
