A very friendly B and B overlooking the estuary with a resident seal who sleeps on a surf board. Really lovely place to stay. Good breakfast and a 5 minute walk from the town centre where there is a wide choice of restaurants and bars. The B and B uses local produce and herbs and flowers from there own garden... More

I booked a night at Cairbre House once we'd decided on making a stop in Dungarvan, and none of the available hotels looked anything special. The house itself is beautiful and the location in Dungarvan is fantastic - being able to walk everywhere is a major advantage, especially if you're going out in the evening. Unfortunately we picked the wettest... More

We booked 2 rooms for one night on our trip through Ireland. Cairbre House is in a beautiful spot, surrounded by well-tended gardens and water. Brian was a most accommodating host and gave detailed directions to restaurants within walking distance. The historic background of the House is very interesting, and the rooms are well appointed and large. Breakfast was first... More

Lovely, quiet spot to explore the region. Quaint house with an interesting history. The breakfasts were the best (and healthiest) we had in all Ireland. The town is small and genuine with good restaurants and lovely pubs.

We've been to Ireland 4 times and have stayed in dozens of B&B's. Cairbe House is in the top 2 or 3 for us. There are so many reasons why this is a #1 rated B&B in Dungarvan. The setting right on the river is wonderful. This 200 year old home is charming and finely appointed. You'll never find a... More

This is our second stay at Brian's Cairbre house, we simply wouldn't consider any other since our stay there, 4 years ago. Brian is the host par excellence and Catherine complements his attentive touch at breakfast. We just love the sun room and its views of the bay and bird life, wandering through the many gardens, strolling to town and... More

Everything about Cairbre House is great. The rooms are comfortable and big, the house is full of history and charm, the breakfast is superb, and the setting and views are beautiful. My wife and I woke up to a beautiful view of the River Colligan and the Comeragh Mountains not far in the distance. When the river is at high... More

After driving the Wild Atlantic Way I wanted a couple of days downtime. This was the perfect place to stay. Brian is a great host. The room, bed, food - all excellent. I walked round the gardens and enjoyed the conservatory. Stay here. I will next time I pass.

I travel the country and stay in lots of guest houses. This one beats them all. The building itself has great character being built in 1819 and Brian is the perfect host. The rooms have so much history; but it's the consideration of the guest that beats all. A few eclairs on your bed. Nice biscuits for your tea. Even... More
