“Brilliant!”
Reviewed July 20, 2011

Mary is warm and welcoming, a superb host. Every room is immaculate, comfortable and clean. We really enjoyed the village and a meal at the Harbour Bar - great pub and restaurant.

Spent our last two nights in Ireland at this marvelous B&B. Our room was impeccable and Mary made our stay memorable with her warmth, home cooking and even restaurant recommendation. We have been to Ireland 3 years in a row and this is our favorite experience. It beats Ashford Castle and the Ritz-Carlton by a mile! My husband and I are still smiling and thinking how fortunate we are to have booked this extraordinary B&B that makes you feel so welcomed and also disappointed that you have to leave at the same time!!! Don't miss out on this superior accommodation.

Room Tip: We had the most spacious, immaculate and comfortable room of our trip!

Had the pleasure of staying at this B&B in June and if you want a treat, stay here! Mary, the owner of the B&B and her son were the nicest people! Could not do enough for my 2 daughters and myself! Our only regret was leaving!

Breakfast is not to be missed! Mary is a wonderful baker!

We have stayed at many fine B&B's in Ireland, but even among these excellent accommodations Sandyhills stands out for its exceptionally large, clean, and comfortable rooms, fine breakfast, and--most of all--the very warm and generous hostess, Mary Buckley. We will gladly stay there again.

Room Tip: Just ask Mary if you have special requests or needs.

You'll love Mary the host, she is a taste of Ireland and so is her food. Wonderful breakfasts with homemade dreamy pancakes and scones. Rooms are meticulously clean and very spacious. Great location outside of Dublin near water and pubs. Close to airport. Great experience.

Our host, Mary, was welcoming and helpful. She has developed, designed and decorated a beautiful Bed and Breakfast located in the small town of Rush. The beach is minutes away from her front door. The rooms are spacious, the beds comfortable and the attention to detail and quality in the design was evident everywhere.

Mary accommodates her guests airline schedules and provided us with an early breakfast at 7 am, so we could get to the Dublin Airport. We are so glad she did, since her scones are not to be missed! You can't go wrong with Mary and Sandy Hills.

Rush is not really a tourist town and is a hodge-podge of development and change, but we enjoyed our time there walking on the beach and meeting the locals at the Harbor Inn (Pub/Restaurant). Their "pub grub" was fantastic! Ireland is beautiful, but it is the people that made our experience there the best and filled with memories.

This was a spotless, wonderfully appointed property with a truly lovely bedroom. Mary has managed the development of the property single handed and is rightly proud of it. She wants future visitors to enjoy it, by keeping it pristine. Hence taking shoes off in the lobby and wearing wooly socks (provided). But it was all done so gently and well explained, that you could not take exception. Half an hour's walk to the restaurant she recommended (Harbour Bar) but it was well worth it. In the morning we needed to leave before 7 to catch the early Dublin Ferry. No proble. Mary was up before us and freshly baked scones were on the table.
So many 5 star reviews for this place, and we are happy to endorse them.
