Lovely spacious, clean, modern home near Ballybunion. Very pleasant helpful hosts. The breakfast was nicely cooked especially the pancakes! The orange juice was not as stated on the menu "fresh orange juice" but disappointingly made from concentrate. The jams and preserves were presented in their plastic sachets and the maple syrup in a plastic bottle. Actually it was golden syrup... More

Stayed during the Listowel race week 2014. This a clear leader and standard setter in the industry. Beautiful rooms, exceptional breakfast and excellent managment, all with the perfect location and view. Will definitely return soon.

Beautiful place close to town and the Ballybunion Golf Course. David our host and his wife,Doreen were the most welcoming host and hostess. Room was large and very clean. Breakfasts were great! And the " massage "chair was perfect for my aches and pains! Rod & EJ McKnight

Great place to stay - would recommend. Owners were very welcoming and nothing too much trouble. Great Irish breakfast - also would recommend the home made pancakes! Plenty of good restaurants in the town. Clean sandy beach. Didn't make the seaweed bath down near the beach as not enough time but believe its a great experience. Property very tastefully presented.... More

We only spent one night here but can highly recommend it. The room we had was very clean and the bathroom was very up to date and spotless. The host was very gracious and prepared an extremely early breakfast for us at 6 AM because we had an early tee time at the nearby Ballybunion Golf Course. This is something... More

We had a fantastic stay in this guesthouse on the main road leading into Ballybunion. It's ideally located in North Kerry to explore that area of Kerry or indeed to get the ferry across to Clare to explore there. The accommodation was spotless, the Crapes at breakfast (house specialty) were excellent. The room was wonderfully laid out and comfortable. David... More

Great place to stay while in Ballybunion even if you don't golf. The owner is very friendly and made our stay very comfortable. The room was very nice and breakfast was delicious. Easy access to the world famous golf course.

Recently stayed in a suite with my sisters and mom for a rare family get together. We were given a very warm welcome and our suite was very comfortable, spacious and spotless with lovely views. We really enjoyed the delicious breakfasts and our chats with David and the other guests. The room was serviced to an excellent standard every day.... More

I was very impressed. The owner/manager was very welcoming and gracious. I would definitely stay there again. The location is very good for going to play golf at Ballybunion. The wifi is free and fast. The breakfast was delicious.

Stayed at the Tides with 6 people in September 2014. This was the best place that we visited in Ireland. The rooms were clean, large, and quiet. David was entertaining and informative. He even gave tips for other locations we were going to. The quality of the breakfast was excellent and he even gave us an early start so we... More
