Beautiful Accommodations and Friendly Owners
I had a wonderful week stay at The Lanterns Hotel which is in the Tarbert countryside along the "Wild Atlantic Way" overlooking the Shannon River. I had a beautiful room with a 4 poster bed and the owners, Ishi and Raj, were so friendly and accommodating. They knew I didn't have a car so they made arrangements with the most wonderful local woman to show me the sites and she turned out to be full of information and better than the best tour guide I could have ever found. There is a bar/restaurant right on site for meals and a short drive down the road will get you to the ferry to Claire or the quaint little town of Glin. The People of Glin were so warm and welcoming I felt like I knew them forever. I would do this trip again and not change 1 thing. It was just perfect!
