This was the first place we stayed at on our trip and Ethna set the bar for the rest! It is located within walking distance to Kilrush and in a nice neighborhood, with a nice garden view. We were 2 hours earlier than expected and welcomed in without it being an issue. Ethna's home is beautiful and clean, and the... More

We stayed here in May 2014 for 4 nights, we extended our stay because this B & B was so accommodating, kind, and helpful! Ethna was an amazing host, always going out of her way to ensure we were all comfortable. She bought us treats for us to bring to our family members, and bought me gluten-free bread so I... More

Upon arrival, we were greeted in a large foyer by our host Ethna. She was warm and friendly. She showed us to our room which was very clean and cozy. When we mentioned that we had skipped the Cliffs of Mohr because of the crowds, she gave us a map and sent us out to the Loophead. It was spectacular.... More

My husband and I spent one night at Hillcrest View B & B. We were greeted warmly and shown to a comfortable room. The bed was large and comfy and for the second time only on our travels we had a top sheet on our bed which is great because if you get hot then you can still just have... More

There are not many B&B's in Kilrush but this one is certainly good value for money. The bedding was of superior quality and I have stayed in many hotels which were more expensive but were not a patch on Hillcrest View. A tasty breakfast was served in a lovely sunroom giving on to the back garden. Clean, comfortable, good value,... More

Prior to traveling to Ireland, we had stayed in B & B accommodations mostly in the US and Canada. In Ireland we experienced a tier of B& B s that was very comfortable, very clean, more inn-like in style and quality, and very friendly and informative -- easily comparable to a moderately priced hotel but with added hospitality. The Hillcrest... More

This was my first visit to Hillcrest view but not my first to Kilrush this b&b is beutifully appointed with sparklingly clean rooms which are of a good size with powerfull showers. Breakfast has everything you could wish for and nothing is too much trouble for Ethna. The parking has enough room for at least 6 cars with more space... More

My husband and l recently stayed with Ethna and Austin and were very Impressed with their B & B. Both Ethna and Austin were very welcoming and helpful with providing local knowledge and suggestions. The B & B was only a short walk into town which is great.... about 5 -10 mins depending how fast you stroll. The room was... More

We found this B&B a comfortable place to stay and the queen size bed comfortable. The room was a good size and allowed free movement around the room. There was a small lounge room to use the WiFi. the owners were helpful regarding places to eat and visit. The breakfast was good and filling.
