We had a great 3 night stay with Pat and Gill. They were extremely helpful, even calling to reserve seats for us on the boat to the Aran Isles. The B&B is comfortable, with all the expected home-like touches, and a delicious and generous breakfast. We especially enjoyed the pub up the road for dinner every evening - the best... More

Only stayed one night, but we enjoyed our short stay in the Burren. Wish we had more time to stay - I would stay two nights if I had to do all over again. The room was small; bed was firm, but everything was spotless.

What shall I say? The Orchid House was the best B&B during our stay in Ireland (although we were really lucky with all of our B&Bs!!!). Room - perfectly clean, lovely equipped, nice view Breakfast - delicious! Hospitality - inexpressible. I do not tend to exaggerate! If you are looking for a place to relax, feel secure, comfortable and well... More

I cannot rave enough about our time at The Orchid House. Pat and Gill are the kindest people we met in Ireland and provided the most wonderful, warm, inviting, and lovely experience. We were traveling around Ireland for two weeks for our honeymoon and Fanore was our last and favorite stop on our trip. We arrived to a congratulations card... More

Our stay with Gil and Pat in mid-July 2015 was a wonderful way to begin our travels through Ireland. Our rooms were very comfortable, the views were beautiful and the breakfasts were outstanding. Pat gave us a tour of his poly-tunnel and an explanation of his working farm. They gave us additional information of things to see while we were... More

This is definitely the best B&B I've ever stayed at. Beautiful house, large and nice rooms and bathrooms, amazing views, delicious breakfast and Jill & Pat are the perfect hosts that will help whenever they can. When we said that wewanted to hike, Jill showed us a couple of routes, lend us a map, etc. I enjoyed every minute there... More

Gill and Pat were more than we could of ever asked for, not only was the place beautiful and the meals delicious, the extras that we received from Gill, like preparing a picnic lunch and helping with booking reservation was exceptional. Pat and Gills friendly conversation and helpful advice were defiantly appreciated . We felt at home right away and... More

Gill was so nice, warm and welcoming, as was her B&B. The Orchid House is spotlesslessly clean, and well maintained - very comfortable, too. The view of the ocean from our room was beautiful. We were there in very bad weather, so it was nice to come back to Gill's warm little cottage. What a great value! And the breakfasts... More
