We spent (luckily) only one night at this b&b. It was totally different from all the other b&bs we stayed in, unfortunately in a bad way. The room was small and in a very poor condition (though clean), with no TV and there was an unpleasant smell in it. Breakfast was good.

The B&B is in the building of a former convent, hence the name. When we arrived around 4:15 pm on June 12th, we found the door locked. Ringing the bell gave no result. Because we had found on the Internet there is a connection between the B&B and the Blackberry restaurant, which is an estimated 400-500 m down the main... More

We had an unplanned one night stay here on a west coast tour as our schedule was delayed due to a mechanical fault on our bike. Fortune definitely smiled upon us when we knocked at the door of The Convent. Sean was the perfect host and our room had the most magnificent views. The building itself is unassuming from outside,...

This is exactly why we prefer B&B's over hotels. The location - a former convent with the old chapel as breakfast location - is stunning, the rooms are excellent, the fireplace 'kings and queens worthy', but above all the personal touch of Sean and Mary will make your stay unforgettable. Never seen such hardworking, pleasant, caring and lovable hosts. We... More

This former convent includes the sanctuary and has rooms overlooking the water. There was ample off road parking and was a few minutes from the town eateries. The host was very helpful in getting us settled, agreeing to a very acceptable price, and making sure we were comfortable in the common room. It is walking distance to a local attraction... More

I stayed in The Convent B&B in Leenane last sept, 2013 for 3 nights, and I must say it was a fantastic experience, fabulous rooms, great location and views, with a generous breakfast each morning, the hospitality of the staff adds an overall charm to the splendid house. I also ate in the Blackberry Restaurant in the village which is... More

You cannot get a better view of the fjord from your bedroom. Its breathtaking. Located 2 mins walk from the village. Rooms aren't huge but clean and adequate. They also have a restaurant in the village. Overall it was a such a welcoming visit. The service was brilliant and will definitely go back

Stayed here twice now. Once with a group of five and just last week-end eight of us based ourselves here during an expedition into the Turks. Rooms are comfortable and clean but if you are used to US hotel room proportions then you need to adjust your expectations. Showers do the job. Breakfast is plentiful and tasty. Wonderful host. Very... More

The Convent offers a nice view of Ireland's only fiord and is located within walking distance of the town of Leenane. Yes, it's a converted convent with stain glass windows still in place in the dining hall. The room was small but quite adequate for two people and passed my wife's 'clean' standards. For one night's stay it was fine.... More
