We spent here our first and last night in Ireland during our journey in october 2012 and our choice of BB couldn't have been better; we were looking for a quiet place off the beaten track to unwind from a short stay in London and O'Leary farm fully met our expectations.
Ms Phil , the owner, was very welcoming , offered us a nice hot cup of tea and cake on arrival and introduced us to a double room facing the sea with a really huge, spotlessly clean bathroom.
We could see from our windows different breeds of sheep and (unusual for us) belted cows.
Full irish breakfast the next morning was a treat.
Returned to O'Leary the day before our ferry sailing back to UK and Phil let us walk around the farm , explaining us how she cares about her sheep, especially the young sick ones; also had a nice walk to the beach (beware: the trail could be very muddy)
We will recommend this BB to all our friends
