“Croagh Patrick Climb”
Reviewed October 18, 2012

Great B&B. Owners were so nice and inviting. Big room with comfy beds, fluffy towels and the best shower I've ever used...I slept like a log after climbing the reek.
Quick spin to the town and recommended taxi number picked us up in less than a minute.
Nice cycle to Croagh Patrick from here and parking was so convenient..right outside the door.
I will definitely be going back..actually I am in 2 weeks!

Our night's stay was broken by a number of different sets of drunken 'guests' returning from 3 am - blundering into our door, shouting and arguing. Despite shouting to them to shut up they continued until we called the landlady who had to come down and quieten them. Consequently when we eventually got to sleep, woke feeling weary.
I would not recommend staying here at the week-ends as there are obviously stag and hen parties and just groups who will arrive back drunk and noisy.

WestportPaddy, Owner at Boffin Lodge, responded to this review, October 17, 2012
Dear Guest,
We are very sorry that your night sleep was very badly disturbed as you outline in the review above and as was stated to you the following morning at breakfast & again on check-out. It is regrettable that other guest actions spoiled what I am sure was an otherwise enjoyable stay in Boffin Lodge, Westport. However I don't know where the 'Stag & Hens' inference has come from as The party of six people involved comprised of four males & two females. My understanding is that these people when they came back to Boffin Lodge that night gathered in one large room, (they were booked into three separate rooms) and were loudly talking & laughing. We checked at breakfast and none of the other six rooms in the house had been disturbed by them. Indeed we did not hear anything at all ourselves a floor above until we received your internal call. We immediately responded called to the room in question, made the people politely aware of the grief they were causing and they immediately all went to their own rooms. I checked the 119 reviews that we have already going back many years and could not find a similar comment such as your own and I hope anyone reading will conclude that some ordinary guests stepped out of line, when we were made aware of it we took immediate action and solved the problem there and then. In your review above you rated Boffin Lodge as'Terrible' May I suggest that you did indeed have a 'terrible' experience in the early hours of the morning but that to rate our establishment 'Terrible' as a result of this incident in unfair. Pat Aylward. Owner Boffin Lodge.

We stayed here recently and on arrival we were really impressed with the place. The location is good, not too far from the town or quay and the rooms were spacious and clean. However we found the beds too hard and uncomfortable. The couple travelling with us stayed in a family room and also found the beds too hard.
Aside from that the place was nice. There was a great choice for breakfast and it was cooked very well. My ficancé had a full Irish, I had scrambled eggs and toast and his sister had lovely pancakes. There was a nice selection of cereals, breads and yogurts also.
Over all I would recommend this B&B as long as you don't mind hard uncomfortable beds.

Beautiful house. Very clean. Excellent breakfast. Very helpful hostess. Lots of extras which made it special. Bernie did our washing for us and let the kids feed her chickens. She gave us lots of advice including where to eat and where to stay in our next town. Highly recommended. Thanks Bernie!! X

"Pat" took us late at night with a sense of humor - he stuck his head out the door and counted: one, two, three Germans, I guess? Equally pleasing was the quiet and clean rooms and a delicious Irish breakfast. Pats courtesy and friendly service are definitely recommended! The location of the hotel (approx. 10 min. Walk to the "center") makes it ideal for city travelers.

This was our second stay at Boffin Lodge, last year for our honeymoon, and this year to celebrate our first wedding anniversay-it was every bit as good as we remembered it from last year!

We were met with a warm welcome from the owner Paddy, who was so helpful and full of suggestions on the best places to go and history of the area which was lovely.

The room was lovely, huge comfy bed, tv, hairdryer, tea and coffee facilities, and good powerful shower in the en-suite.

The breakfast was out of this world, great selection, so much to choose from, and the perfect way to set you up for the day ahead!

All of the staff were lovely, helpful, and cant do enough for you.

We will definately be back again next year, and we wouldnt want to stay anywhere else!
