“We loved our guided five-day walking holiday at Lough Dan House, which included guided walking by Sean (and, on our first day, by Theresa), as well as a lovely and immaculate room, with a picture window overlooking meadows, hills and sheep; all our meals; and even a pint at the local pubs at the end of some of our walks. Sean is not only amazingly knowledgeable about the area and its inhabitants (both past and present), but cares deeply about the environment. Theresa is so kind that she made a donation to a charitable organization for which I will be participating in a “stair climbing” fundraiser in New York City in October. (Needless to say, the climbing we did on one of our hikes (the Spink) was good preparation for that fundraising event!) The walks were geared to our abilities, included van pickup and drop-off where helpful, and were all different. As for everything else: We enjoyed plentiful breakfasts (smoked salmon, porridge, eggs cooked to order, dried and fresh fruit, yogurt), boxed lunches, and dinners that included such delights as Theresa’s homemade soups, peppers stuffed with goat cheese, tasty salmon, chicken, and lamb, all accompanied by good Chilean wine. After dinner our favorite spot was by the fire in the living room, reading, chatting, and having a hot toddy or Irish whiskey. Other guests were interesting (and included repeat customers). From the moment Sean and Theresa’s son Peter picked us up at Dublin airport to the moment he dropped us off at our Dublin hotel, this was a magical five days and nights. It was our first trip to Ireland but, largely because of Sean and Theresa, we hope to return.”
