The friendly owner said to have a good B&B you have to provide a comfortable bed, a hot shower and a great breakfast, and The Tides does an outstanding job on all three. The spacious rooms were nicely decorated and provided a restful night's sleep. The breakfast has a nice buffet to start plus you get to order off the... More

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!

A very friendly place, with great breakfast and a friendly host. Our room was nice and spacious. Not a great location, though. You really need a car to drive into towm and the beaches and walking the dog was difficult as there was really only the street (with no pavements).
