“Break to the seaside”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 4, 2012

We booked two rooms for my two kids and My Wife and I for a night away break. The views from the front rooms are stunning and it was lovely to see all the sailing and fishing activity happening in the newly developed harbor. The rooms were very clean and both had SKY HD with modern flat screen TV's. It was very cold outside and the rooms were toasty warm when we returned from walks and a meal in Greystones. The breakfast was very nice but was from 8.00 - 9.00 which seems a bit early for a Sunday morning after a few pints the night before. All in all a very nice experience.

Room Tip: Get a front room upstairs for the views.

The location and food were second to none. Also, the place was very well kept, with the exception of some dodgy artwork on the walls (done by a local artist)......The warm and welcoming ambiance of the place won me over, and the Host and Hostess could'nt do enough for me......nothing was too much. Highly recommended

Room Tip: Ask the Hostess

We stayed in Slievemore house during the summer. The house was so comfortable and welcoming. The rooms were spacious and extremely clean. The breakfast was so tasty. I would definitely stay there again

Let’s be frank. There are few places to stay in Greystones. The town itself is small, but lovely, and at the end of the line for the DART.

The B&B is located a leisurely 10mins walk from the DART station on the harbour front. The harbour is currently boarded up – they ran out of money to finish it which isn’t the best thing to be looking out of your window at, and understandably local businesses are up in arms about the situation.

That said, the view from my room was fine and I wasn’t put off by the hoardings too much. My room was a single, it was clean and tidy and I had no issues with it at all. I had a good night’s sleep and heard no noise at all from the nearby pub or people leaving it.

The room was not en suite, which I understood and was happy with on booking the room. The bathroom at the end of the hall was very cramped though. When taking a shower the curtain was literally clinging to me because there was so little room in there. It didn’t bother me too much but I imagine that it might others.

The lady of the house was lovely and very helpful. The breakfast room was bright and airy and looked out over a picturesque garden. The breakfast itself was a little bit disappointing given the build up it had been given on arrival.

So, general consensus is that you have very little option for places to stay if you’re planning a trip to Greystones, but this B&B does the job well. Could be better, but could be a lot worse. Would I recommend it? Yes I would, but perhaps pay a bit extra for an en suite room.

We just spent several nights at Slievemore. We enjoyed our stay in Greystones - easy access to Dublin by DART rail; easy access to great countryside (Powerscourt and Glendalough, for example); and some good local restaurants and shops. Slievemore is right on the harbour and when the vast alterations to the harbour are completed it will be in an excellent location. But this may not be until summer 2011 looking at current progress. At present the view is spoilt by perimeter fences and building works. We did not find this a problem - a bit noisy in the morning from 7.00 when work started (but we easily slept through!) and the view was not as it might be (but see photos). The accommodation is fine. Small en suite bathroom. The place is a bit cluttered and old fashioned in its decor and furniture, but all OK. Breakfast is OK but not wonderful - the same every day and not fantastic, but fine if you are there for a day or two. No drinks facilities in house or rooms.
We were very frustrated that the owner was not around when we arrived after 12 hours travelling, despite making the arrangement (we thought) when we booked. No reply from the mobile phone number on the door or text or message to let us know they would not be around. We had a stressed 45 minutes wondering if the places was in fact closed. Happy to recommend and Greystones is a good place as a base. But just not quite as great an experience as we had hoped. Hence three stars overall and not four.

Our last nights stay in Ireland. The whole harbour at Greystone is a construction site. The bedroom at Slievemore House smelt damp and musty and worst of all there was fresh makeup on one of the pillows and small hairs in the bed. The sheets and pillowcases had not been changed. HORRIBLE!!

This is a charming place to stay! The best part about it is its lovely location with a view of Greystone's Harbor. Unfortunately, the harbor is currently under construction. Thankfully, it wasn’t loud or annoying, but the beautiful view is a bit obstructed for now.

Other than that – this B&B is wonderful! Our hosts were kind, the price is fair, breakfast was lovely, and it is close enough to Greystone’s town center/the DART station (if you don’t mind a short and pleasant walk).
