In the fall 2013 my wife and I toured Ireland for 5 weeks by bus (Bus Eireann). No driving for us on the “wrong” side of the street! We chose lodging based primarily on 1) Location : close walking distance to center of town 2) TripAdvisor evaluations 3) cost (value). We stayed primarily in B & B’s. Our 3 nights... More

Great B&B just outside the village - really comfortable room with modern decor and a big comfortable bed. Guest lounge is ideal to sit, relax and overlook the bay. The hostess Anne-Marie ensured we were looked after - her breakfasts were fresh, inventive and substantial. Really liked this accommodation and would recommend it

Lovely home with such attention to detail when it comes to ensuring a stellar guest experience! Proprietor Anne Marie is thoughtful, friendly and welcoming. I appreciated her commitment to "greening" the B&B with eco-friendly soap, shampoo and cleaning products, as well as friendly reminders to turn off lights and reuse towels. There's a beautiful sitting room with a stunning view... More

Excellent accommodation and hospitality. Grace was very welcoming and provided valuable information about regional sites and places to visit. The room and bed were comfortable. Her breakfasts were precisely prepared to accommodate individual preferences. We stayed two nights and hope to return some day. Highly recommended!

We have stayed here on numerous occasions and always return. A genuine welcome awaits guests while your privacy and space are respected. The quality of accommodation is second to none. Breakfasts are consistently above average. Advice on where to go and what to see if requested is always worth listening to. Even though we have visited on many occasions they... More
