A very well appointed large bungalow, clean and modern with a large room and even larger bathroom with everything you'd need. We were greeted by the lady of the house who helped us a lot with our peculiar requests. Breakfast was very good too with plenty to choose from and a freshly cooked meal to keep us going throughout the day. The man of the house is a very keen golfer and the house is festooned with his trophies. I suspect if you showed the slightest interest, he'd join you at the first tee before you could shout 'fore'. Anyway, he too was a lovely friendly chap and when his credit card machine broke, he was very apologetic, offering any method he could think of to receive payment. Ballybunion is a 20+ minute walk from this place down a fairly busy, fast road. So if you want to go into the village for dinner with drinks, plan accordingly. The morning of our departure, the owner mentioned that there was a race meeting on the beach and kindly let us stay till midday. And if you've never seen horses tearing across a beach, don't pass on the opportunity - it was terrific!

The Tides is beautifully appointed and very spacious - received a very warm Irish welcome from David Walsh with excellent recommendations for drinks and dinner in Ballybunnion. A delicious breakfast especially served early to enable us to get a good start for the journey to Dublin for the ferry home - nothing too much trouble! Thank you David and Doreen for an excellent finale to our most enjoyable Southern section of the Wild Atlantic Way from Clonokilty to Ballybunnion!

My husband and I stayed 2 nights at the Tides B&B. We absolutely loved it. The owner (David) and his wife couldn’t have been any nicer! The room was immaculate and the bed was so comfortable. David was hilarious...telling us wonderful stories. We had breakfast there as well, and it was so delicious. My husband had the Irish breakfast and I had the pancakes...both were so yummy! I can’t say enough great things about this place. If you find yourself in Ballybunion...don’t hesitate to book The Tides!

We can’t believe how beautiful this B and B is. Lovely details and fine construction make it an oasis for the traveler. But what really sets it apart is the kindness of the owners. David went the extra mile for us, getting us a taxi, dinner reservations and even a nip of whiskey (shh) for my husband. He is a lovely man and made us feel as if we were royalty. Highly highly recommended.
