Great stay.
Wonderful little space, clean, large bath/shower, the bed was just a bit small for the 2 of us. Owner & daughter were friendly. Restaurant food was good, different, interesting but really good.

Small rooms
The rooms are small as they were the cells used by the nuns. The bed was uncomfortable. The WiFi is very spotty going in and out all the time.

Stay here on a Wednesday night
If you are staying in Lanesborough make sure it is one a Wed night when the local musicians get together in Clarkes bar on the high st. Clair at the Convent guest house put us onto it and we thoroughly enjoyed ourselves. Clair was the perfect host with lots of nice touches in the room - flowers, coffee/tea making, hair dryer toiletries etc (everything you might expect in a 5 star hotel). The room was on the small side, as was the TV, which only had 2 channels working....It was comfy enough and breakfast was a delight. Would certainly recommend, especially on a Wed night !
