We loved our stay here! The owner is a great guy and gave us the absolute best suggestions of things to do and places to eat. The house is beautiful and the rooms amazing. The breakfast was fantastic. We would go back in a heartbeat. Highly recommended!

The Tides was one of the best if not the best place stayed during our two week Ireland/Scotland trip. 5 stars all the way for the rooms, breakfast, host, updates, common areas, MASSAGE CHAIR, parking, wifi, etc. We stayed in the large upstairs suite that would comfortably accommodate 4 people (really about 6, not sure how that would work with...

Great place to stay if you're in Ballybunion for any reason. We were there with 3 other couples to play golf, and the hospitality couldn't have been warmer. Great sitting area to unwind, clean comfortable rooms, and a wonderful breakfast to get you ready for your round. David is a host among hosts, with his wealth of stories, and golf... More

This place is fantastic. We have stayed at many B&Bs in Ireland and this is the best. David has a warm welcome for you with suggestions of what to do in the area. Not just the usual tourist spots but out of the way sites like Bromore Cliffs and Ballyseedy monument. Beautiful. Room was super clean and spacious. Breakfast very... More

I made my reservations by phone speaking directly to the owner David Walsh. He arranged our two tee times at the golf course as well. I felt a little wary because the process was almost too easy. My worries were completely unfounded. We arrived at their B&B after playing the first round and relaxed in their comfortable, sunny lounge replete... More

Received a very warm welcome on arrival. Shown to a spacious and attractive room which had all the amenities including our own wine cooler! Dave gave excellent advice on places to eat in Ballybunion (delicious!) and the full Irish breakfast (or pancakes as enjoyed by some) was a great way to start the day. I highly recommend it as the...

We day-tripped as a family of 5 in July. The owner was very welcoming and put us at ease immediately. The room we got was large with a very big en-suite. The breakfast included pancakes, which went down a treat with the children. Will definitely stay here again in ballybunion. There are lots of brochures in the reception for local... More

We stayed in 4 different places when we went to Ireland and this was truly one of the best ones! The room was quite spacious (just like the pictures) and very clean. Breakfast was wonderful especially the crepes. My 8 & 12 year old daughters were still talking about them at the end of our 2 week Ireland vacation! My... More
