We stayed one night to visit Westport. We wanted a location out of town and on the water and this fit the bill. But it is a distance into Westport proper though there are other hotels and restaurants right up the street. A storm was brewing which added to the dramatic location. Hosts David and Aiofa were wonderful! Very friendly... More

I stayed here for one night with my girlfriend, and it was everything we could've asked for. Run by two really friendly and hospitable people, in a peaceful location, and the breakfast is really nice. Hats off to the owners for maintaining such a great place to stay.

I stayed here when an unexpected change to my trip made it necessary to get a place at short notice. The room was clean, the location is pretty good (though my room was in back with no view), and the hostess Aoife was very nice and helpful. It's not luxurious but for the price it was perfect.

Stayed just one night on my travel from Galway to Portrush and glad I booked this B and B. The host was extremely helpful and friendly. She recommended the Helm Hotel for dinner and as I could not stay for breakfast she made sandwiches for my car trip. Very thoughtful and yummy!! Fantastic position looking straight out over the water... More
