Small and perfectly formed. Top marks for customer service and comfort. Website did indicate that accommodation was full but when I phoned there was availability so don't miss staying at this little gem for the sake of phone call. First evening we were late getting back and literally ordered food at minute to end of service but no prob. Breakfast... More

Showed up very late after along day tracing my husband's ancestors in nearby Swanlinbar. Brian welcomed us in and when he found out we had not eaten, he opened the kitchen and cooked for us even though it had been closed for over an hour. He sent us to our room to freshen up after taken out meal order, and... More

Just returned from a short stay in The Keepers Arms. Try as I might I cannot think of one bad thing to say about it. Its great from the start as the accomodation is situated over a public bar! Sheila's homecooking is to behold. Breakfast is excellent followed later in the day by an equally gratifying food experience as an... More

Having just returned home after another great week with Brain and Sheila, again we were treated like one of their family, all that mouth watering delicious home cooked food, and the hospitality is second to none. The rooms are clean, well thought out and all en suite, and the beds are so roomy and comfortable. No request is any trouble.... More

Spent a week fishing in and around Bawnboy the weather and fishing was crap but staying at the Keepers arms made up for the bad weather. Sheila and Brian really looked after us there is a walk in fridge for the bait and a place to dry clothing and kit. Have got to recommend Sheila's Irish Stake with mushroom stir... More

We had a fabulous time at The Keepers Arms. The rooms were all en suite and the staff was fantastic. A super hearty breakfast was included and started off each day perfectly. Sheila went out of her way to make us feel at home, and w/2 kids, that's a tall order. She even let us use a baby monitor so... More

We were in Ireland for one of my wife's cousin's wedding in Bawnboy, Co Cavan, Ireland The family houses were full so we wanted to stay close to the rest of the family. This was as close to staying with family as we could get. Sheila made us feel as though we were family. The breakfasts (fry) kept us all... More

A wonderful weekend in comfortable and happy surroundings. Our hosts were most hospitable, willing to please where ever they could (Brian in the bar and Sheila in the kitchen - what a team!!) I would have expected to pay handsomely for these sorts of facilities but was pleasantly surprised at the final cost. There is obviously a lot of personal... More
