Response from Helen:
Aisling lovely to hear you had a enjoyable holiday and I really enjoyed our conversations during your visit. As mentioned when we met if there was anything you needed we were happy to provide so next time if we can help with anything please don't hesitate to ask or clarify anything. Linen is provided with soap (in cupboard by bed with spare blanket, sorry if you missed it, in my routine introduction I talk/show that so my apologies if you did not see them or if my brain had a glitch). We would very much welcome you back anytime, appreciate recommendations. The seal tour is a great experience - really an undiscovered treasure of the area. Take care and hope to see you another time.
