Very warm welcome when we arrived, simple accommodation but nice clean warm room. The owner put an extra heater in our room which was a nice touch and the bed is the comfiest I have ever slept in. Cheap and cheerful although price is for room only

I found this b&b a disappointment. When we arrived they seemed to not know our booking, and had forgotten I had requested and reminded three times about the skelligs tour, which was my reason for being in Waterville in the first place. We were then told the restaurant was closed as they had no fish that day, and yet when... More

A clean but very small room. It was a downstairs room that was supposed to be wheelchair friendly and whilst we didn't need this it was definitely to small for a wheelchair. The eating area was very basic and to us seemed stuck in the 1970's with an unadventurous and basic breakfast menu. Despite this the lady who ran the... More

We had a reservation for three beds and got four. Not so much space left in the room but nice and quiet and with a bathroom that could fit for wheelchair access. Feels more like a guest house than a bb. Convenient parking on the grounds. Good breakfast and good coffee. They have a restaurant in the breakfast area but... More

The room was very small and bathroom was tiny, Unfortunately not very clean and filthy, there was dust on skirting boards, shelves, tv (no remote control), carpet under the bed was not hoovered for long time as there was a lot of dust and some rubbish there. The most disappointing was the "restaurant" - it is much to big word... More

Our family, a party of 12 which included 2 small children, stayed for one night. The rooms were clean, the breakfast was amazing and the owners friendly and helpful. I especially liked that the accommodations were very child friendly. Thank you Margaret!

Quaint Inn that has turn of the century warmth and charm. Great location that's a short 10 min walk into the city center with it's numerous restaurants and pubs. Definitely order the breakfast at the Inn, top notch! Areas nearby have a plethora of outdoors activities that the Inn owners were very gracious in offering history and information about. 2... More
