My wife and I visited the white cottages mid July just for one night and we were absolutely delighted. The scenery was stunning. Joe made us feel very welcome. The breakfast was delicious. Everything was great just wish we had booked for a little longer. We'll definitely be back.

The White Cottages, run by Joe and Jackie, is a peaceful, welcoming bit of heaven in Skerries, just north of Dublin. The Captain's Room was where we stayed in this beautifully kept seaside B&B. although the Perch Room also looked great! Our room had two French doors and a patio that opened up to the Irish Sea, so our room felt even larger. Breakfasts were superb, and helpful ideas from Joe as to where to visit made our stay even better. What made it one of the best was Joe and Jackie - the ultimate hosts who went above and beyond to make our last three days in Ireland the perfect ending to a retirement holiday. Thank you

The White Cottages was the perfect place for us to stay during our last night of the trip before we flew out of Dublin. The room was on a bluff overlooking the Ocean and we were an easy walk away from the main town. The proprietors couldn't have been more welcoming and if you're a dog lover, you'll very much enjoy playing fetch with their dog.

We thoroughly enjoyed our accommodations in this very pretty seaside town. We were overjoyed staying in the Harbour Master room and I witnessed the prettiest sunrise ever (without even getting out of bed)! You can't stay in a B&B any closer to the seashore than this lovely location. It is within an easy walk to various restaurants. Unfortunately, we were not able to enjoy breakfast as we had an early morning flight out of the Dublin airport. It was only a 30 minute drive from the B&B and the airport.
