I've had the pleasure of spending a few d­ays in beautiful Ardara planning the wedding of clo­se friends. The town and it's people are a credit an­d there is an incredible sense of communi­ty and warm hospitality. However during my visit I was staying in ­Brae House and I wouldn't even credit it ­with the term B&B. The place is... More

After booking one night based on the excellent reviews my Wife and I came away very disappointed. Maybe we caught Nora on a bad day, because when we arrived she was on crutches because of an operation on her foot. She told us that we could stay in a room but she could not provide breakfast, and gave us the... More

Best poached eggs ever. But the hospitality was the best. Nora was our tour guide to Ardara and our night out on the town. Nancy's restaurant and Kennedy's Knitwear also excellent, nice memories. Highly recommend it. 🍳🍳🍳🍳🍳🍳🍳🍳🍳🍳🍳🍳🍳🍳🍳🍳🍳🍳🍳🍳🍳🍳🍳🍳🍳🍳🍳🍳🍳🍳🍳🍳🍳🍳🍳🍳🍳🍳🍳🍳🍳🍳🍳🍳🍳🍳🍳🍳🍳🍳🍳🍳🍳🍳🍳🍳🍳🍳🍳🍳🍳🍳🍳🍳🍳🍳🍳🍳🍳🍳🍳🍳🍳

It has taken me far too long to write this review: A friend and I visited Ireland last April. We searched out Nancy's Pub and we're given Nora's contact information when we asked for nearby B&B's. Nora quickly prepared a room for us and helped us settle in. That evening Nora invited us out for a walk that evening as... More

We enjoyed our stay at the Brae House a lot! The room was in excellent condition, clean, tidy and cosy. Nora is a very friendly host and fulfilled every wish in an uncomplicated way: Additional electric heaters, breakfast wishes, bus timetables... also her recommendation of the bike rental in Ardara was very helpful! The Brae House is right in the... More

Those who insist on staying in hotels rather than in a private house for their holiday stays ought to think again in my opinion .Nora's abode would win you over along with her bright and cheerful manner .By nature she wants to please and please she does ! Nothing is too much trouble for her . Her place was spick-and... More

For Breakfast you could choose from lots of different cereals and the full Irish wasn't very Full, First time we got a... More

Great B and B in the Best Little Town in Ireland. Hostess Nora is very gracious and helpful. Rooms cozy and beds comfortable. Great location to explore this lovely town close to; bus stop, restaurants, pubs and lots of weaving and knitting shopping. Everyone is so friendly. We wished we could stay longer and will surely be back.

Brae House is right in the Main Street, so handy to pubs etc, and Nora the host is friendly and attentive. The rooms are clean, but they would be better with better soundproofing (even just carpet the stairs) as you hear every footstep, and update the pillows. The breakfast wasn't the best one we had, but it was adequate.
