Spotless B&B next to Ballybunion Golf Club. If you like quiet, clean but "lifeless" B&Bs this is the place for you. Good breakfast but expensive for a B&B. About 2 miles from Ballybunion town but from what we saw this is a plus point. Great golf courses and hospitality at Ballybunion Golf Club.

The Cashen Course House is a cross between a small hotel and a B&B. Mrs. O'Brian was a gracious and helpful host. We stayed here as it was close to our family in Ballyduff; we are not golfers but did visit the clubhouse a hundred yards away. The rooms are good size and nicely furnished. Breakfast was excellent.

Had a great week here. Diedre is so welcoming and even gave us a lift to The town on our first night. Rooms were very clean and comfortable. Have stayed in Diedries other properties for the last few years but they were fully booked so stayed at Cashen Course. Was not disappointed. If you are a golfer then a few... More

The Cashen Course House seemed to be a cross between a hotel and a B&B. That said, it is very well run. Our room was comfortable and clean, with a great view overlooking the Cashen Course. If you are looking for a place to stay while playing Ballybunion, you won't regret staying there.

Is there a bad Bed & Breakfast in Ireland? In two trips, I have not found one, but Cashen Course House is among the best. Right across the street from the Cashen Course and Ballybunion is a block north of that! This B&B is a little more expensive than some, but with its location, that is understandable. Still, it is...

We stayed at the Cashen Course house by chance, we came into Ballybunion because my husband wanted to golf but couldn't get a tee time that afternoon (afternoons are reserved for members FYI) so we decided to stay as it's a stones throw from the course. Dierdra runs the place and is an absolute Doll! She was very sweet and... More

The owners were extremely friendly and the hotel was very clean and comfortable. I would recommend this hotel to my friends. It is located directly across the street from the golf course and not too far from the town center.

This is a gem of a bed and breakfast located within walking distance of the Ballybunnion golf courses. The room we occupied was beautifully furnished, extremely generous in size with a beautiful ensuite bathroom with a lovely spa to relax in after a busy day and beautiful complimentary toiletries . The room was spotlessly clean and nothing was a trouble... More
