“Can't see what all the fuzz is about!”
Reviewed August 20, 2012

Bertra House is supposed to be one of the best in Ireland, having received great reviews and awards. The only thing really outstanding we could find was the location right by the sea, which is just beautiful. The hostess was the least friendly and warm we met on our trip (still nice though). The room was rather small with a spotty and sticky carpet. Breakfast was average and the whole thing just felt more like doing business than being welcomed into a guesthouse.

bertra, Owner at Bertra House B&B, responded to this review, September 6, 2012
I wish to address this review by first mentioning that the numerous awards received by our guesthouse were bestowed for the renowned hospitality and warm welcome received by our guests. I also wish to clarify that all of the carpets in all of our rooms are less than a year old and are thoroughly cleaned daily so unfortunately I cannot comprehend what the issue raised in this review refers to.
I am nonetheless deeply saddened that one of our guests felt that they did not receive the quality of reception that so many of our other guests have come to applaud us on and I wish to affirm that If any our guests have any issues with any of the services provided, please highlight your concerns during your stay and we will do everything within our power to resolve any problems so as to ensure you leave with pleasant memories of your visit.

On a motorbiking tour around the Mayo coast, we took longer than expected to cover our distance for the day and realised we would be arriving much later than the intended time. However, on contacting Margaret she was very accommodating, telling us to take whatever time we needed and enjoy the trip. In spite of us not arriving till nearly 10pm, she was very welcoming indeed and when we asked where we could get something to eat at that time, she even volunteered to make us a light supper - this was very much appreciated as we would have been too late to get food in the village and were absolutely exhausted. It was a small gesture of kindness that made a huge difference to us on the night.

I would hope to stay here again the next time I return to tour the Mayo coast area. The location is easy enough to find, is in beautiful surroundings and is nice and peaceful. The scrambled eggs are highly recommended!

Helpful tip - the turn for the house is on the right hand side heading out of Murrisk, about a mile and a half (nearly 2.5 kilometres) past the Tavern pub in the village. After the turn it's about another 500-600 metres to the house.

I enjoyed every minute of stay in Bertra house. Was stunned by views of Croagh Patrick through bedroom window, the most peaceful sleep, complete silence and peace and the most delicious scrambled egg for breakfast. Felt really welcome and looked after! 5 min walk to the blue flag beach, 5 min drive to Croagh Patrick, 10 min drive to Westport. Couldnt imagine better location! Highly recommend for that little escape form everyday stress and rush.

I loved staying at Bertra House B&B. I enjoyed it so much I extended my stay! The location was absolutely superb with wonderful views of Croagh Patrick and of Clew Bay. The hospitality was second to none and there was a very high standard of cleanliness. Margaret made me feel very welcome and I plan to return very soon for another visit. 5/5 for sure.

We booked to stay 3 nights and stayed for 5! Wonderful hostess who made us very welcome, and nothing was too much trouble. Great advice on what to do in the area. Home situated near a beautiful beach, and near enough to Westport for everything there. Lovely, individually styled rooms, and the use of a very comfortable sitting room.

We arrived here unexpectedly having originally booked with another B & B up the road. There was a mix up with our booking and we were directed to Bertra House. The rooms are clean and comfortable and there is a comfortable lounge for guest use. Free wi-fi. Margaret is a lovely lady and she gave us directions on where to go and what to do in the area. The only disappointment for us was the breakfast. You have to make your choice the night before and the full Irish does not include the typical Irish ingredients of black and white pudding. It is an English breakfast of bacon, sausage, egg and beans. However, it was good - freshly cooked and nicely served. There is a lovely walk to the beach and the dunes and the day that we were there the weather was hot and sunny and we definitely saw this area at its best. We sat in the garden drinking wine and watched the most beautiful sunset over the sea. Would recommend this B & B and we would stay here again.
