We found this place by chance and it could not have been better. John and Irene are delightful hosts and made us feel like old friends. Our room was SO comfortable and meticulously clean. The breakfast options were amazing and cooked to perfection by Irene. Beautiful setting, quiet and peaceful. A perfect B & B experience!

Tadah, chance can sometimes be a wonderful thing and it certainly was when our doorbell rang the day before yesterday and you two were standing there, looking for a place to stay. We are delighted that you chose Crubenbeg and, even more so, that you enjoyed your all-too-brief stay with us. Thank you for taking the time to say so.... More

We stayed at John and Irene's place for the first time and we really enjoyed it. We did a long hike that day and were quite exhausted when we arrived at the B&B.

We found this last minute break on laterooms which meant we got a great deal; we would (and plan to) return and be very happy to pay the full price! The room was comfortable, spotlessly clean and had everything we needed. The best thing about this guesthouse however is John and Irene; a couple who work very hard to make... More

Just returned home from a really relaxing stay at Crubenbeg house. John and Irene are the perfect hosts and will tend to your every need. The breakfasts were fantastic, cannot recommend the porridge enough. The area itself is stunning and you will struggle to find a more scenic setting anywhere.

This was our second visit to Crunenbeg - it only took us 7 years to get back - it was just as great as we remembered. You have to try the home cooking, it was superb. John and Irene are perfect hosts. We almost didn't put a review on trip advisor because we would like to keep it as a... More

My partner has been visiting Crubenbeg for 5 years now, and her stories had made me want to go! So when a vacancy came up to join her for the 'end of term party' I jumped at the chance.
