The Heron's Rest
Some people know exactly how to put the right object in the right place, in order to create the right effect. Sorcha Molloy, of The heron’s Rest in the centre of Galway city, is one of those people. What Elizabeth Field, of McKennas’ Guides remembered most about staying at Heron’s Rest was “a golden Thai bedspread glowing in the evening sunlight”. Ah! Can’t you just see it: the sun setting over to the west of the Corrib River that flows just outside the house, the Galway day drawing to a close, and you are going to be tucked up under a golden Thai bedspread. It doesn’t get any better than that.
But mesmerising people is kind of what Sorcha Molly does. She has astounding energy, her breakfast are amongst the finest in the West, and her skills are allied to an incredible sense of foresight: she knows what you would like even before you know it. And she knows beauty, she understands feng shui, she knows how to create an effect you will never forget. That golden Thai bedspread glowing in the evening sunlight – you will never, ever forget it. And you won’t forget the Heron’s Rest.
