Editor's Review

The Emerald Isle is a well-maintained heritage property with beautiful natural surroundings. It is ideal for guests who want to relax. The rooms have a unique old world charm, especially the granary mini-suites. The open-to-sky bathrooms are great but sometimes they give way to the mosquitoes. You get to meet some really lovely people during your stay and there are quite a few activities to keep you busy.
