“Excellent stay near Westport”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 17, 2012

Kay is a delightful hostess. We thoroughly enjoyed visiting with her in the late afternoon after we returned from our day’s touring in Mayo County. Unlike almost every other host we had the pleasure to stay with, Kay offered up tea and delicious scones every afternoon. Lovely! As others have commented, her home is neat and beautifully decorated. Breakfast was good; no complaints here! I wouldn't, however, define the bedrooms as spacious. Not a problem, just a comment.

Room Tip: As their home is only 100’ off the N5 highway, we suggest a room in the back in case you like to sle...

When we arrived we were immediately asked into the living room and served hot buns with jam and a nice hot cup of tea. Kay is such a warm, welcoming person and we immediately felt at home. The rooms are spacious and very neat, very clean and decorated with a loving hand. Breakfast was lovely, and I helped myself to really huge bowls of Kay´s lovely porridge. Our daughter was so pleased with her room, which looked more like a suite in a hotel, and she said that this was the best house she had stayed at during our holiday. We had to get up very early in the morning to catch our flight back home and she had prepared sandwiches for us and drinks to help us through the drive from the west to the east coast so early in the morning, which we thought very, very friendly and caring. If you are in this part of the country, this place is the place to stay. :)

We stayed two nights with Kay at Windmere House.She was so welcoming and the perfect hostess.
The rooms were lovely ,clean, comfortable and very obvious that she took pride in what she does. I have to say one of the best we've stayed at! We were doing some family research. She went out of her way to help us with that and told us about the museum in Castlebar which we enjoyed so much. Breakfast was delicious!

Kay was such a kind hostess, and tea and scones on arrival with a good chat was a welcoming touch. Handy location for Castlebar, Westport and Knock airport.

Her breakfast was wonderful and very delicious.

Kay is a perfect host! She welcomed us with tea and biscuits, helped us with tips and said bye with fruits and biscuits to take away. The rooms are very clean, the place is warm and with a lot of personality. The Knock airport is 40 minutes away by car. I would sleep here again!

We stayed with Kay on may 19th,2012 she is a wonderful host, when we checked in she gave us tea and homemade scones, which were the the best I have had on my trip to Ireland. We have been traveling around for over two weeks, we found Kay in the bed and breakfast book.
She gave us some places to see, we went to the Westport house, which we truly enjoyed seeing and the history.
We had a wonderful breakfast this morning, I really enjoyed the porridge and the boiled egg.
Please if you are in castlebar stay at the Windermere house, Kay will make sure you are treated great and you will enjoy your stay, along with the wonderful beds and view.
