Pros: Mount Edward may have been the cleanest place we EVER stayed ANYWHERE: everything sparkled. Hotel Employee was a terrific host and prepared a wonderful breakfast served in a cozy sunroom. The B&B is a convenient 15 minute drive from Sligo.
Cons: Our room was a bit small: we had two big suitcases, which pretty much blocked the alleys around the bed. It was also the most expensive B&B we stayed at in Ireland, but the Sligo Fleadh was going on and no other place would book a one-night stay.
