The room was very big and had a lovely view, and breakfast was absolutely fantastic. So beautifully presented and everything was so fresh (with lots from the garden). It was a nice... More

Brian, the owner of Cairbre House B&B, is, we are sure, the reason this fantastic B&B was the best place we stayed in our 2 week visit to Ireland. The grounds are absolutely fantastic, full of plants that you will probably never see all in one place again, yet Brian has created an amazing garden within this unique micro-climate. While... More

His breakfast creations are delicious, made with fresh ingredients and garnished with fresh flowers. We enjoyed several different outside areas for viewing the estuary and its wildlife. The 2nd floor room and en... More

Older style accommodation. Brian is a very good host. Brian and his helpers go the extra bit to prepare breakfast with fresh ingredients from his garden and decorated with flowers picked that morning. Easy stroll to the town centre if you want some exercise. Interesting history to this house and Brian is willing to talk about. This was our first... More

Very much enjoyed our stay in Cairbre house. Location is absolutely perfect with the most beautiful gardens. Brian, our host, is just a minefield of information - which led us to a very enjoyable evening in Minnies bar only a few minutes walk away. Decor in this house is what you would expect from such a historical building but it... More
