Just returned from a visit after staying 3 dreadful nights in Room 1 on the ground floor. This has been one of my worst experiences at a B&B. While the room has clearly been redecorated recently and looked wonderful with a beautiful bathroom etc my visit was completely spoilt by the dreadful smell in the room - especially from the...

Very small room ("economic" room n°11), a bit old (but globally clean), and unfortunately I found one living insect on the bed in the morning (quite sure it's a bed bug), so I cancelled my second night.

My wife and I had been told by numerous people that staying in bed and breakfasts (B&Bs) in Ireland. This was the first of two nights we booked at B&Bs in Ireland with good ratings. We had some difficulty finding it (our own fault) and were very tired from walking a long way by the time we arrived. The door... More

It is difficult to park in front of shandon bells but we had a pleasant experience from start to finish once we were let in. Our room was an attic room, which was quite small but cozy and cleverly laid-out - cozy! There was a full bathtub and very comfortable bed. Nice coffee and tea were available in the room.... More

Nice staff, had no problems and breakfast was excellent. They also have a swanky smoking/chilling area next to the river. In regards to wifi and the negative comments, I was in the room above the dining hall (where it was claimed to only be wifi) so can't really comment. My room was kinda small, but clean and nice in general.... More

Was bit worried reading all the reviews, but this place is really nice. Booked double and triple room for one night. Both had brand new bathrooms, very comfy beds, everything was clean. Didn't book breakfast, so can't comment on that. There's café across the street serving breakfast so I can recommend that. Place is also close to town, few minutes... More

Spent 2 nights here for my boyfriend's birthday. Complementary bottle of wine on arrival to help us celebrate. A lovely touch. Room standard, basic and clean. Exactly what we were expecting (after some bad previous experiences with misleading websites) Shower a little awkward and temperature unpredictable. Lovely views. Nice breakfast. Friendly staff.

I liked my stay in this beautiful B&B by the river. Very nice and warm atmosphere. Breakfast was served near the river. The room itself was very good. Will definitely come back again. Highly recommend!!!
