An extraordinary squat tower house built in the 19th century, overlooking the crashing waves of the Atlantic Ocean, Moy House is a unique place. You can climb the four-story central tower for the best view out to sea, although the view from some of the guestrooms is almost as good. (The cheaper ones have views of the grounds, not the sea). Rooms are designed in muted, modern tones, with large beds and modern bathrooms. In what has to be a unique feature, one bathroom even has an original, glass-covered well. You can walk down to the beach for a stroll along the dramatic shoreline, or relax in the drawing room—the house is packed with bookshelves, filled with interesting tomes. The restaurant is excellent, with a very strong emphasis on seasonal produce, but it’s certainly not cheap at €75 per person for a five-course, fixed-price menu. Check the website for good package deals that can really lower the price, including 2- night getaways for around €230.
