This is where we stayed after almost 2 days of traveling from the US via Germany to Ireland. Niamh instantly made us feel welcome. Our room was spacious and clean. The bed was comfortable. The breakfast was excellent. Most definitely will stay here again.

Stayed here while attending wedding at Hodson bay. Thanks so much for a lovely stay Niamh. What a pity we only got to stay one night. Superb home cooked breakfast, power showers, fabulous rooms - excellent place. Would highly recommend.

Modern, large bedroom and beautiful bathroom set in a modern, very clean family home. Child friendly backyard to play in. Lovely lounge/sitting room for guests. Good location, short drive to lake. Free parking available on site. Host - welcoming and friendly. Breakfast - very good.

We stayed at Niamh and Ronan's beautiful B&B for just one night. We were shown to a big, bright room with lovely hardwood floors (I hate carpets), a big double bed along with another twin bed and a very modern bathroom with an almost-rain-showerhead. We were offered tea and coffee straight away and a lift into town if we needed.... More

We just had one night here after a Wedding Reception in The Hudson Bay. House was very well presented externally. The interior was well laid out, beautifully decorated and seemed to provide all facilities for all needs. The couple who owned the property were very friendly and helpful. The whole house was very clean, spacious and very impressive all round.... More
