“Best B&B experience ever”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 24, 2012

The rooms are large, the beds are great, and it's probably the cleanest place I've ever stayed.
The owner, Mary, is a delight, and the breakfast is home made - what more could you want?

Mary was ever so helpful in planning a trip to Dublin and tell about the area in general, which is very beautiful.

Lovely B&B in a great location. Be prepared to remove your shoes upon entry and we were quite cold during our stay. Laundry facilities are not self service with no dryer.

Really nice house and Mary is fab.
Negative: very expensive for the area. Hotel prices but few hotel services. But as I say Mary is a lovely lady with a nice house.
You have to take your shoes off when you get I. The house. Very house proud, too much. But not a bad thing.
Slash the price: it's Rush not Dublin centre.

We needed a B&B on short notice and Mary Buckley was there to save the day. As spoiled Americans, we were happy to find Sandy Hills B&B with its spacious immaculate rooms and bathrooms, beautiful dining room, warm sitting room, and ample off street parking. Mary and her son Eoghen (Owen) could not have been more accommodating. Their suggestions for points of interest and restaurants were brilliant. Mary's breakfasts mustn't be missed. This was our first trip to the emerald Isle, and we will definitely return to Sandy Hills.

On our first day in Ireland we were looking for a B&B near Dublin to stay for the night. So after a long time driving round we found the Sandy Hills B&B in Rush. There we were warmly invited by a very nice Lady called Mary Buckley. She booked a lovely restaurant for us, where we had our dinner: The Harbour Bar. After enjoying Steak, Currychicken, dessert und Guinness, we lay down for a sleep in the very comfortable beds. The room was very large, beautiful and of a very high quality. In the morning we had Mary's delicious homemade pancaces with banana and marple sirup and the Irish breakfast. Later on Mary gave us a map und planned with us the route for our journey. Also she booked our next B&B. Because of all our good experiences of our first stay, we booked in for the last day of our trip.
And we also enjoyed it and if we return to Ireland one day, our first address will be "Sandy Hills B&B".

Stepping into Sandy Hills B&B is like stepping into a decorator's showcase. Impeccable in architectural design and decor in every way. Mary Buckley, the proprietor, is a whirlwind of activity, grace and knowledge about her country, and a genuine delight! She helped us map out (literally) our itinerary for our 4-day excursion through central Ireland...and we did about 90% of it. We stayed there on the first and last night in Ireland and I HIGHLY recommend Sandy Hills. We can also recommend The Harbour Bar...best pub we ate in while in Ireland, bar none. Mary's breakfasts will remain in our memories for a long time...her fresh breads, preserves and banana pancakes are to die for!
