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

Our second visit to Alverna House met all our expectations. We were accompanied by our daughter and her partner who are in mutual agreement with my wife and myself-- beautiful house , wonderful hosts. And we will definitely visit again when we are in the area. Many thanks for your hospitality Niamh.

Alverna House is a good alternative to hotels in the city centre. We visited for a sporting event and in the past opted for a hotel but we got little sleep with the partying in and outside of the hotel.

A beautiful house, spotlessly clean and comfortable.
