Arrived in Ballybunion. Met by Davnitt who was a lovely hostess. The room was fine, could do with a little updating perhaps. The general feel of the place was very pleasant. We were made feel most welcome. For breakfast which was included in the price, we received the full Irish with cereals and fruit. Apart from the wonderful friendly atmosphere,... More

Hello all. Myself and a golfing colleague stayed here in early June 2014 and had a wonderful experience. Lovely owners & staff, a spacious room and a lovely pub to relax, unwind, enjoy a pint and a meal... Nothing but nice things to say. We stayed whilst the US Open was on at Pinehurst. From what I gather we were... More

My wife and I stayed in Ballybunion a few days to play golf. The first night we were looking for a place to eat and parked our car in front of Harty's Costello. We tried our luck and asked if we could have something to eat. A lovely young lady explained the menu and we ordered the soup of the... More

Located in the heart of Ballybunion, the accommodation at Harty Costello's is everything a visitor to the area would want. Rooms are bright, spacious, clean and very comfortable. The owners are also everything a tourist would need - a font of knowledge about everything Ballybunion. Rooms are also quiet - despite the property being on the main street, the rooms... More

After a nice day of driving around we stopped in this town and went for a walk around. It was still early in the season so it was not busy there. This nice place was a surprise. The mussels we fresh.

Definetely as good as any top class Dublin restaurant. Went downstairs after for a drink. We were the last to leave and could,nt find ourselves a taxi. The owner, Jackie Hourigan... More

A great place to stay! The proprietor and her staff made this stay for us. The front of the Town House and it's sign were shielded by some lovely hanging baskets so we passed it up the first time. Once we found it, the proprietor welcomed us and made our stay wonderful. She was cheerful, quick witted and very engaging.... More

This small family run hotel is situated on the main street of town. The hospitality, dining room and accommodations of the Hourigan family are overwhelming. Do not miss this stop in the beautiful town of Ballybunion.
