Another excellent stay at kilbrannan. It's our second home now so more like visiting friends but thats how you'll feel even on your first stay with Gary and Julie. Even in November there's still lot's to do in Yarmouth so it's well worth a visit. Thanks again for a lovely stay.

We have just returned from a stay at the Kilbrannan with my nan and son. Everything from booking was handled in a friendly and professional manner. Originally we wanted to book a family room but was advised that the stairs may be too steep for my nan so we booked a twin and a double and on reflection this was... More

Kilbrannan Guest House is perfectly located for a stay in Great Yarmouth, just a block or two away from the beach. There is a reason so many of the reviews mention Julie and Gary by name--this is not the place to stay if you want a cool reception followed by indifferent hosts. Julie and Gary's warmth and friendliness set the... More

The hosts Gary & Julie were amazing, it's like they were welcoming you in to their family when you arrived. The service they provided was well above what I expected and couldn't be faulted.

As previous owners of a Guest House in Great Yarmouth, and having read great reviews for Julie and Gary at the Kilbrannan, we thought it would be the best place to stay. Excellent choice, we were not disappointed. Everything was great. Fabulous choice of breakfast, quality ingredients , very well cooked. Spotlessly clean, very friendly, nothing was too much trouble... More
