The owner is friendly. The room was clean an the bathroom big. A good breakfast Service in a room with great view will let you stay longer there. The B&B is situated outside of town, so a car is helpful.

We were amazed by the large size of our room and impressed by the outstanding friendliness of the wonderful couple who own this B&B. David gave us a great recommendation for a restaurant near the Ballybunion golf course and shared his extensive knowledge of what to visit in the area. Can't say enough about how much we enjoyed our stay!

The Tides is in a great location for Ballybunion golf and the host, David, is very helpful and concerned that each guest has a wonderful experience. He made excellent dining recommendations as well. The rooms were very spacious, spotlessly clean and well appointed. A great breakfast is included. Perfect!
