We stayed in at Alverna House in January after finding it on TripAdvisor. Now we know why it's rated No.1. It's immaculate in every way. The bedrooms and bathrooms are super clean, the breakfast perfect and the service second to none. We would definitely stay here again and would recommend it without hesitation. Price wise, it's excellent value for money!!!

My husband and I stayed here for one night in early October, as we were attending a wedding at the nearby Hodson Bay Hotel. Arrived early but the very nice owner allowed us to use our room straight away to change, and what a fabulous room it was (no 2). Very well-appointed room with what turned out to be an... More

Two of us stayed in Alverna House B&B on 26th September for one night and I have to say I was pleasantly surprised with the B&B. We were welcomed into the beautiful House by Niamh on arrival, and shown to our room. The entire house was spotlessly clean, modernly decorated and our room looked wonderful. I'm not sure what I...

Alverna House is a clean, comfortable and affordable B&B. Our room was tastefully decorated and the bed was comfortable. The bathroom, in particular, was spotless and the shower was perfect. Alverna House caters to everyone from solo travellers to families. All standard services are provided along with some extras. For instance, the television and games rooms gives it a "home... More

This B&B is a gem of a find. I stayed here with a group of seven and we were delighted. The house is beautiful and the rooms were very comfortable. We enjoyed the hosts who were very helpful and accommodating to our schedule and our needs. I would highly recommend Alverna House. I will be back just as soon as... More

Niamh and Ronan are great hosts. They are both friendly. Niamh makes a homemade Irish breakfast every morning which we truly enjoyed. There are other foods available and a small buffet of breads, cereal, and yogurt are waiting for you when you first enter the breakfast room. Our bedroom was spacious and comfortable. We had a very nice and large... More

This is where we stayed after almost 2 days of traveling from the US via Germany to Ireland. Niamh instantly made us feel welcome. Our room was spacious and clean. The bed was comfortable. The breakfast was excellent. Most definitely will stay here again.

Stayed here while attending wedding at Hodson bay. Thanks so much for a lovely stay Niamh. What a pity we only got to stay one night. Superb home cooked breakfast, power showers, fabulous rooms - excellent place. Would highly recommend.
