Hi, I have stayed a few times now at Blarney House in Beacon Bay, East London and every time has been a great experience! The warmth & hospitality from Fran & Brendan at Blarney House is always very welcoming which is why I go back there every time I need to stay in East London. Another great reason to stay... More

Found Blarney B&B on the internet for a business trip to East London. This excellent establishment had safe secure parking, superb service, wonderful breakfasts with the personal touch. The rooms were fabulous and most important for business trips - there was free internet! We will definitely stay there again for future trips to the area. Many thanks Fran & Brendan.... More

We found blarney b&b on the internet and liked the look of it. Our stay matched up to the promised standard and we were comfortable. We were made very welcome. Breakfast was ace. If we weren't travelling on we'd have liked to stay a few more days

We visited as a family of 5 from Australis and was greeted by Brendan and Fran. Both were very friendly and accommodating. Breakfast was delicious. Only negative was that the showers need upgrading otherwise a very enjoyable visit.

The small bar serves a lovely child beer. And guests are treated like family. Breakfast was superb . The swimming... More

I have just returned to the UK after spending four nights at the Blarney House. It is a fantastic hotel - one of the best I have ever stayed in. The welcome was friendly, the breakfasts brilliant and loved the rooms. Value for money it is incredible. I went on business but would also recommend it for leisure breaks. If... More

After reading the other reviews I can only think that we must have either been in a different establishment, or the owners moved out! We were greeted with stony looks by the wife, and when asked if one of our visitors could use the bathroom, the answer was "there are no public toilets here". When asked if we could have... More

Reservations were made individually by each member of this group. Emails were exchanged during the week prior to arrival to confirm the details of each of the individual reservations.

What a welcome, nothing is too much trouble, breakfast certainly tested my waistband - waffles before anything else. Brendan is incredibly helpful - even doing some photocopying for us at 6.30 on Monday morning.

Excellent experience and made good friends which is made clear by the fact that I stayed there every month for the past 17 years The friendly host and hostess go out of their way to make you feel at home The secutity is also excellent, which in this day and age is important.
