Stayed over the weekend, at the Great Keppel, whilst attending a celebratory party in Portmarnock. Ray was on his own, as Alvis was away but he did a fabulous job and maintained the standards of hospitality that people in previous posts have praised so highly. He was very helpful with advice, information and directions, even to the point of dropping... More

My parents and I have been to Ireland four times now and have stayed at the Great Keppel three of those times. It's so close to the airpiort, yet I never heard planes, and is a perfect base for trips to Dublin. The owners are so sweet and have the best information about the area as long as you follow... More

The Great Keppel was the starting - and end point of our Ireland Trip in summer 2013. The B&B is very good located and the rooms are clean and cozy. The hosts Alvis & Ray were very friendly and helpful. I can recommend this B&B.

Thanks to Alvis & Ray you know what's the "Irish welcome". The location is excellent because it's a great bridge between the city and the airport of Dublin so it's look like you're just going to your beach house. Also, if you hesitate between two things to visit, they will help you to make your choice. So, now, we know... More

Great Keppel is a unique and indidual family home where my wife and I were made to feel extremely welcome. Even though we arrived late at night nothing was too much trouble. Our room was well equiped and very comfortable and the choice of breakfast was excellent. It was a great location only 5 minutes from a lovely beach and... More

Have just returned from a stay at the B& B. Alvis and Ray were hosts supreme, made you very welcom and nothing was too much trouble. You could have practically anything for breakfast. Be it a choice of cereals, a continental breakfast or a freshly cooked full Irish. The rooms were lovely, clean, comfortable and very well equipped. The hotel... More

We prefer to go to great keppel every time when we are travelling in Ireland. The Location of the b&b between the Airport & Dublin City is excellent, next to the beach. Alvis & Ray are very warm & hospitable and it always feels like coming home when arriving at Great Keppel. They are very helpful and give some very... More

Room small, BB unclean, parking dirty. We accessed the room. It was unacceptable. We had reserved a four star BB. We felt this was a one star. We left to go to hotel. Our agent Alainn Tours from Ireland gave us wrong information..

Great Keppel B&B is a beautiful guest house set in a fabulous location. The view from our bedroom window was stunning! Alvis and Ray are very friendly hosts who aim to please. They make you feel very welcome and nothing would appear to be too much trouble. Their local knowledge is a great asset especially if like us, you want... More
