Rockville Bed and Breakfast
Ranked #43 of 70 Westport B&B and Inns
Reviewed August 13, 2012

We (family) stayed with friends. Spotlessly clean, lovely rooms, lovely views & Mary very welcoming-nothing was a problem for Mary - arrived early, dropped our bags, tea and scones, great. Mary gave us tips about the area - including a wonderful playground for the kids. Gardens are lovely and it's a nice area to walk around. I highly recommend you stay here.

We stayed last week with our friends from Kinvara, a party of 7. Arrived just after lunch time, rooms ready, and spotless. After unpacking, greeted by the most wonderful warm scones and tea, just what was required after a long trip. The views from the sun lounge are wonderful. What Mary does not know about the local area and what to do and see, including routes avoiding the rush, was second to none. The choice of breakfast was excellent, with endless tea and coffee. The children found riding their bikes around the house, with its great gardens, safe and good fun. Excellent parking facilities, and lots of safe places to leaves bikes. We would love to come back, next time we are in Westport.

Room Tip: Ask for rooms at the front of the house for the great views of the surrounding area

We recently stayed at the Rockville B&B with our 4 children. It was impeccably clean and quiet with beautiful views and was a close drive into Westport. Mary was so welcoming and catered to our every need. She has great knowledge of the area. I would absolutely stay here again if I ever find myself in Westport.

You certainly can't fault the stunning location of Rockville B&B. The views from the front of the property towards Croagh Patrick and Clew Bay, are absolutely beautiful. The owner, Mary is very warm and welcoming, and we were given homemade scones and a pot of tea to enjoy in the sunroom when we arrived. Our room was at the back of the house, so we missed out on the view from there, but it was clean and tidy with a neat little en-suite toilet and shower room. Definitely a great base to enjoy the area around Westport and Clew Bay.

Room Tip: Ask for a room at the front if you are hoping for a view!

Its been a year and I still fondly recall our stay there. Mary was most accommodating and informative. Breakfasts were wonderful and plentiful. The room was spacious and very clean. And there was a serene atmosphere and beautiful views from the windows. It was a very calm and quiet place and as I was traveling with my husband and his mother (who are not calm or serene) this was most was most welcome.
I appreciated Mary's sympathy and her calming presence.
One day hope to return sans MIL.
Thank you,

We had never been to Westport during our other 4 trips and we lucked into the family sports day there. Mary seemed a bit stressed the day we arrived, we guessed it had to do with previous guests. Yet she made us tea and a hot toddy with scones, so we comfortably settled in.
Her front sun room is very pleasant with a beautiful view and we had wonderful conversations with another couple from N. Ireland. The TV room is nice.

Our major discomfort with staying at Rockville was our downstairs room, we think it was #2. The door opened up to the main downstairs "lobby" area, so if someone was looking, they could see you in bed. There wasn't much privacy. This is the reason we rated it average. Neither of us would stay there again if we had to have the same room.

Room Tip: Don't stay downstairs off the main entrance "lobby" area.

I am sorry to read that you found your room lacking in privacy, but I fail to see how you could see someone in bed even with the door open as you can only see the end of one corner of the bed from the hall. The door has a lock so there is no need for it to be left open.
