Michael collins room

Queen bed with en suite bathroom

Original oak trimmed fireplace and a tiled hearth welcome you to the Michael Collins room. Extensive fretwork, en suite private bath with original claw foot tub, queen size bed and a cozy sitting area invite you to relax and stay awhile in this gorgeous room.  The room was named for the Irish legend Michael Collins. Micael O Coileain, aka Michael Collins, is regarded as one of history’s most intriguing and mysterious figures.  The charismatic Irish rebel led Ireland’s fight for independence from Britain. In his very controversial role as IRA leader, he was indeed the man who made modern Ireland possible. Though Collins is seen as hero to some and rogue to others, his name is still in the hearts and minds of those with a love of Irish history. This is one of the most popular rooms at the bed and breakfast.

Schocklehorne Suite

King suite with en suite bathroom

The Schocklehorne Suite features an en suite bathroom with pedestal sink, jetted tub and separate shower.  With the third floor all to yourself, you will enjoy a turreted reading nook, private sitting room, stained glass windows and bookcases filled with fun books to read. Two twin beds, a daybed (with additional pull-out bed) and a sumptuous king size bed make this suite a great choice for a family getaway, girls' night out, or the perfect hiding place for just the two of you.

Schockelhorne is an endearing Irish term for a matchmaker/chaperone/marriage broker.  In the movie “The Quiet Man,” set in the town of “Innisfree,” schockelhorne Michaleen O’Flynn (Barry Fitzgerald) kept Sean Thorton (John Wayne) and Mary Kate Danaher (Maureen O’Hara) in line while they were courting.

O'Malley room

Queen bed, bathroom on hall

The Grainnie O’Malley is a delightful room historically decorated with a queen size 4-poster bed and charming sitting area in the turret...a cheerful yet elegant space in which to spend your time during your stay at the bed and breakfast.

History behind the name: The room is named after Grainnie O’Malley, or Grace, who was born in County Mayo in the year 1530, and is known in Irish culture as the “Pirate Queen.” It is said that when she was a little girl, she wanted to accompany her father on one of his trips at sea, but he said she could not because she was a girl.  She cut off her hair, donned boy’s clothes, and was known thereafter as Grainnie Mhael, or Grainnie the bald! A woman before her time, she led fleets of ships during battles with the British.

Yeats room

Full bed, bathroom on hall

The Yeats holds a full size bed with two large windows on the quiet side of the bed and breakfast.

We think he would have found inspiration here.  William Butler Yeats was born in Dublin in 1865 and died in 1939.  He was a dramatist, prose writer and one of the greatest English language Irish poets of the 20th century. Yeats received the Nobel Prize in Literature in 1923. His poem, “The Lake Isle of Innisfree,” inspired the naming of this B & B.
