Have just had such a lovely stay at the Avonmore. Very comfy room with the additional luxury of a bath with plenty of piping hot water, just loved it. It’s a beautiful house, very close to the beaches, restaurants, shops etc. John and Mary are incredible hosts, so accommodating and sweet. The breakfast is unbelievable, loads of choice. The kippers are to die for and John makes all the bread, just delicious! There’s also excellent WiFi and tv if you need it. We were in Youghal for a wedding and it was a perfect location to stay for everything. We loved it 🥰

ROOM 2 fantastic, spacious, front view, loved it. Other family members also had lovely rooms, we stayed for 3 nights. HOSTS John and Mary so helpful both pre and during visit. John does a great breakfast and Mary is so nice, nothing was too much trouble, even booking evening meals at different restaurants for 8 of us. Great location only mins from North Main Street and beach. Do agree with the best B ab B comment. Cant believe someone would give it a 1 rating - 3 is average and this B&B by anyones standard is above average. Suspicious!!

We stayed there a few weeks ago now it was ok one complaint was breakfast basically you had to order breakfast the night before if you didn't it was said to you the following morning and OMG if you changed your mind during the night it felt like you were just there to cause trouble my main complaint is the reviews on this place nobody gets perfect reviews all the time so the bad ones must be taken down immediately I'm l wrong we can't be the only one's that didn't give this place 10 out of 10

Response from John Bailey, Owner at Avonmore House
Responded Jul 29, 2022
First of all, we have had no guests by the name of Conor in the last 3 months as we log every name entering the premises. So he/she is obviously writing under a cloak of anonymity or has never experienced a stay at our B&B. At Avonmore House, the breakfast is one of the main highlights upon which we are complimented regularly, making it more bizarre as to why the reviewer has focused on this area to grind his/her axe. However, as we have the platform, it’s a good opportunity to explain our simple breakfast system of which all guests are made aware upon arrival. Guests are invited to book their preferred choice from our extensive menu the night before breakfast. This was introduced during the Covid Pandemic so guests do not have to wait an unnecessary length of time before their main dish arrives. All the prep work and bread baking is completed early and the breakfast is cooked fresh as soon as the guest arrives or just after they consume their starters from the buffet (freshly baked organic breads, fruit salad, yoghurt, cereals, etc). Almost all our guests are very appreciative of this system. However, guests are also welcome to delay their choice until the morning as long as they are prepared to wait slightly longer for their meal to be “prepped” and cooked. It is quite common for guests to change their minds which we are happy to facilitate, as the menu is so wide and varied. Every effort is made to make any changes seamless and there is plenty to eat in the buffet while the guest awaits the main course. As for the reviewer’s “Main Complaint” concerning bad reviews being removed. This is yet another ludicrous statement which questions the integrity of TripAdvisor as an open and transparent international travel companion and source of valuable information to millions.

We booked Avonmore House in advance for a one night stay en route from Rosslaire to Kenmare. We were greeted by John who made us feel so welcome. He had booked a table for us for dinner in the hotel a few minutes walk from house. Our room was spotless, spacious and the bed was so, so comfortable. Mary looked after us at breakfast with such friendly service. Food delicious. We highly recommend Avonmore as John & Mary are excellent hosts.

This is without doubt the best B and B we have ever stayed at. Our hosts John and Mary were very welcoming and nothing was too much bother for them. Being a Coeliacs sufferer I was wondering what I would be able to have for breakfast. I didn't need to worry I enjoyed a full Irish Breakfast fry every morning totally Gluten-free...amazing quality. My wife enjoyed the more adventurous choices with a different one every morning. We had many conversations with John and Mary and although we arrived as guests we felt we left as friends. We were sorry to leave and have already booked again for August. We have never stayed at a B and B twice, really can't recommend Avonmore House enough. I might even try the other breakfast choices next time.....on the other hand the fry is too good to give up. Totally deserving of the high trip advisor score.

Beautiful clean, large room . John and Mary are the nicest friendliest people you could hope to meet. Lovely breakfast with lots of choice and superb home made bread. I have never stayed in a nicer B and B, anywhere, and would recommend Avonmore unreservedly , looking forward to returning soon. Thank you for everything.

Hosts Mary & John provide a warm, friendly, & caring welcome to a lovely B&B. Good communication on making the booking. Beautiful characterful home in great location, with good parking. Walking distance to all local sites. Superb gourmet breakfasts (think John is a Ballymaloe grad), best breakfasts of our trip. Highly recommend, hope to return.

Just returned from a one night stay in Youghal, staying at Avonmore House. I was greeted by the host John and made to feel at home straight away. John gave me a choice of two different rooms. The room was spotless and the bed really comfortable. The best part of the stay was the beautiful freshly cooked breakfast (pre ordered using a computerised booking system in the lobby), John's homemade bread is to die for. John and Mary are wonderful hosts. Highly recommended.
