Irene & I have been in business since the turn of the century, most recently here at Crubenbeg House. We are proud and, at the same time, humbled, by the number of our customers who choose to return time and again.
Over the years, in the company of these guests, we have been privileged to enjoy numerous episodes – some humorous, some touching and, yes, some a little embarrassing for us, perhaps. All, however, are memories we cherish and all are part of the rich tapestry of life here, significantly contributing to the "Crubenbeg Experience", if you like.
These are stories that mature and improve with age - as these things do. We seem to savour them more with each retelling.
But, we wondered, do our guests feel the same way as we do? There was surely only one way to find out. So, we invited a cross-section of our regulars – folk who've come to know us well – to each write a short piece for this section of our website.
Modestly, we asked them to avoid being too fulsome in their praise – that not what we wanted at all. Instead, we explained, they should simply recount any particular moments or episodes that sprung to mind from their stays with us.
So here, unedited, unexpurgated and uncensored, are their recollections, told in their own words.
Irene & I hope that these tales bring a smile to your face and brighten your day a wee bit too.
