Great welcome and lovely clean room. Delicious smoothies for breakfast and local breads. James is an excellent host and suggested interesting places to visit. A highlight was climbing Slieve Martin but ask him about Spelga dam and the slope that defies gravity and proves the existence of the fairies! An added unexpected bonus was the CD gift- James is a...

Sadly, we were only able to stay at the Oystercatcher for one night (and unfortunately the weather wasn't great). However, we had a fabulous stay at this delightful B&B. James was good company and a wonderful host. He looked after us really well, was very helpful, relaxed, informative and pleasant and made us feel very welcome. He told us about... More

Stunning views. Lovely simple decor. Comfy bed. Great shower. Excellent food. Charming host who treats guests as old friends. What more could you want? A very special place. Would highly recommend and can't wait to visit again. All that a B & B should be.

Great little retreat in a beautiful part of the world. Thoroughly enjoyed our stay, and a little sing song over breakfast. Highly recommended! If you get the chance, ask the gaffer for one of his LPs - you'll not be disappointed! A+++

I encountered a wholly unexpected level of friendship and the experience of being welcomed into the family complemented a comfortable stay in a B&B set in a beautiful location facing the water - a memorable stay!
