Really lovely B&B, well decorated, clean and comfortable. When Helen says it is a "stones throw from the beach", that means opening the front door and getting your three year old to throw it! Ask for the sea view- it is great. Helen kindly made me a lunch for a day's walking around the island Terrific place to stay on... More

Wow! On an island in the middle of the ocean, we would not have expected this. Wood floors, wide sweeping staircase, large rooms, comfortable sofas, fireplace and beautiful views. We couldn't ask for any more. Helen is a gracious hostess. Helped us with everything including introducing us to her father-in-law who might be a long lost relative! All rooms are... More

We stayed 2 nights with Helen and Alan and had a wonderful time. Modern spotlessly clean guest house with beach frontage. Room and en-suite bathroom were very spacious. Beds are super comfortable. Great breakfast. Helen was extremely friendly and flexible with looking after our luggage until our ferry departure time. Over all we had a very comfortable and hassle free... More

Stayed here with a group of friends for one night on our 11 day tour of Ireland. We booked last minute with 8 people and they were more than happy to accommodate allowing us to put extra people in one of the rooms. The space was clean and comfortable. Small bathrooms with electric showers in each room (the norm in... More

I stayed here for a night recently and it's an excellent B&B. The rooms are bright and airy, the beds very comfortable. The place is spotless. We had dinner and breakfast there, Helen is a great cook and a very welcoming host. The b&b is located close to the ferry port and is easy to find.

As fine an example of island hospitality that you could hope to experience. Alan and Helen couldn't have been more helpful and for certain I will be back again to stay at their delightful guesthouse..

A group of us stayed in O'Grady's for the Pirate Queen / Clare Island Adventure Race. Helen looked after us from the moment we arrived until we left. The rooms are bright, spacious, airy, comfortable, spotlessly clean & all have WiFi access as well as tea-making facilities. After a rather tough day out running about the Island, it was sheer...

We stayed here with a group of friends a couple of weeks ago. The guesthouse is kept in pristine condition, and spacious rooms with modern decor. The thing I loved about this place was the personal attention to detail. Helen couldn't have done more for us! You just don't get that anywhere anymore! Hats off!
