The Andrew O’Malley Room
Billed as a lesson in Irish history at the time of the Great Famine, this room is a faithful reconstruction of the County Mayo cottage where young Andrew lived with his parents, three brothers and three sisters. Entering the room through the heavy, cleated door, Inn patrons notice the cowless byre to the left behind the fireplace. Weathered, wide board flooring leads into the main living area. Splayed windows reveal thick, plaster-covered walls. Small, mouth-blown panes are framed high in the walls. Glass was kept at a minimum because of the English tax. The height of the openings and splay admitted added sunlight and are a throwback to times when defenders of the castles and round towers wanted to limit the target area of their enemy and afford those inside a wide angle of view. Subtle hues of earth tones in the hemp floor coverings, painted china lamp shades and a pants-patch quilt give additional warmth and cheer to this charming snuggery. The fireplace is flanked by a stave-built upright plunge churn and a wooden meal ark. A spinning wheel, small turf wagon, fools chair, scythe, lantern and rent and tithe box offer evidence to the times. This is a first floor room with one king-size bed to accommodate no more than two guests.
The Trevor Chadwick Room
A common roof and Celtic heritage are the only similarities in the Inn’s quarters and the distinct cultures they represent. The variations are demonstrated in the range from the quintessential simplicity of the O’Malley cabin to the Victorian elegance as portrayed in the bed chamber of Trevor Chadwick. Here guests can fulfill their fantasy and live the life of a Liverpool “factor” in West Indies trade at the height of the Empire. The opulence of the times is evident in the furnishings, window coverings, walls and carpets. This is a first floor room with one king-size bed to accommodate no more than two guests.
The Rosine Flemming Room
Those with Scottish ancestry can be “laird” of the dream “croft” in the romantic Rosine Fleming room from the Isle of Mull. Sit in the carpet rocker and see the azure sky reflected on the deep window walls. Close your eyes and you can imagine the scent of the heather on the highland blowing down across the loch. Any Scotsman will assure you that there is not a spot nearer heaven anywhere else on earth. This second floor room has one queen sized bed and accomodates up to two guests.
The Squire David Tenby Room
The half-timbered end wall establishes the handsome, manor-like mood of the deluxe Squire David Tenby room. Any nineteenth century Welshman would have been proud of the beautiful sleigh bed and homespun floor coverings. Neither he nor his lady could ever have imagined such a marvel as this room’s wonderful bath with slate floor and brass fittings. This second floor room has one king and one full size bed and accommodates up to four guests.
