The Heatons met in Ashford Castle where they both commenced their careers. Helen Heaton says the attention to detail is key.
“We are a very small guest house with 12 bedrooms and three staff. We thought long and hard about building our own place and there were a lot of will-we-won’t-we conversations before we decided to go for it,” Helen Heaton told The Irish Times.
“What we do is full-on and seven days a week, but it is hugely rewarding and the guests we get are so nice, and I know all this sounds terribly cliched but it is the truth.”
