My husband has stayed here several times when he travelled with the guys to play golf. I had never stayed in a B&B and I was pleasantly surprised...the Tides is very nice. We will definitely stay here again when we come back for the next Ballybunion tournament. The rooms are private and clean and breakfast was great. I highly recommend... More

What a wonderful gem! Clean, large bedrooms with a beautiful view, combined with a delicious breakfast, and a gracious, knowledgeable host! Our reservations at another place were cancelled without notice, and we were frantically searching for somewhere to sleep when we lucked upon the Tides. Serendipity! What a pleasant surprise.

Lovely clean b and b. The views the morning we were there were fab. The house is gorgeous our room was spotless. The breakfast was a bit dear for what you got but over all was a lovely visit. There is a lovely garden swing outside where you can see the ocean.

Our group of nine stayed one night at this guest house. The host, David, was very welcoming and accommodating and the rooms were very well-appointed. This was the nicest B&B we encountered on our two week trip. The breakfast was fabulous. We all wised we could have stayed longer. The only challenge was the distance to Ballybunion City Center, but... More

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at the tides. Although we only stayed one night we found David's welcome the rooms and the breakfast (pancakes were delicious!) to be of an excellent standard and the nicest place we have stayed in a long time. The Irish welcome and conversation was great too!!being back from Australia we were delighted to be welcomed... More

We were unfortunately only at the Tides for one evening...wish we could have have stayed longer but when I forgot my chargers there, David arranged for me to pick them up the next day at the airport! Not sure how he pulled that off... More

David was a fantastic host and will take care of your every need. The golf at Ballybunion is to die for and everyone should stay here! The Irish breakfast was always on point and the place really feels like a home away from home.

My Dad and i planned a bucket list trip to Ireland and the crown jewel of the trip was to play golf at Ballybunion. I looked at several places to stay and was fortunate to find the Tides B&B.
