Description and pictures reflect the actual situation of the B&B. In walking distance to the center of Lisdoonvarna with good restaurants/pubs. Nicely decorated room, spacious bathroom, excellent breakfast. The landlady was very helpful and friendly and took time to chat with us when she found us in the living room after our return from the restaurant. PRI (Price(85) Relax Index) 5 = very good

Excellent location a few mins walk to the centre of Lisdoonvarna, which in itself is perfectly positioned for exploring Cliffs of Moher and the Burren (which we absolutely loved). The B&B itself is warm and welcoming and our room was spotlessly clean and comfortable. Lovely thoughtful touches such as a jar of cookies to have with a cup of tea and a bottle opener and wine glasses were excellent! Bathroom looked brand new and was also super clean, with lovely towels and shampoo etc. Mary’s breakfast was sensational - so lovingly crafted and considered. All fresh local produce, such as amazing cheeses, plus an amazing variety of spiced and stewed fruits to go with local fresh yogurt. Banana and soda breads, fruit and cold meats. This is before you’ve even chosen from the beautifully hand written menu of cooked options - from classic Irish cooked breakfast, or local goats cheese and smoked salmon bagel to organic porridge with a shot of Baileys! We were blown away. And enjoyed whilst sitting in the cosy conservatory looking at the beautiful garden. Would thoroughly recommend!

This Bed and Breakfast far exceeded our expectations for accommodation. The room was spacious and comfortable, and the breakfast was amazing. There were lots of choices, and used locally sourced ingredients. The rhubarb compote was excellent. Mary also gave us an excellent recommendation for local dining and entertainment that did not disappoint.

Mary provided the loveliest hospitality a guest could ever hope for! We loved our stay at Ballinsheen House. The B&B was spacious and immaculate, and the breakfasts were simply amazing -- a five-star experience crafted lovingly with the finest ingredients. Our room was large and comfortable, with views of the gorgeous gardens. I'd gladly stay there again and recommend it highly!
