Some B&Bs have great locations, some are wonderful properties and some offer great hospitality. Clifford House has it all including a great full Irish breakfast in a breakfast room with breath taking views.
From the moment we arrived we knew that this was not a normal B&B, the gardens and various pieces of sculpture carefully placed gave an indication of what was to come. We received a warm welcome from Margaret, tea, homemade banana cake and homemade biscuits soon followed. The lounge overlooks the cliffs and sea with Tuskar Rock lighthouse clearly viable on the horizon. A telescope is provided for closer views of the rock and the various birds on the cliffs and beach below. The house is beautifully decorated with many interesting pictures and a photo history of the development of Clifford House.
Margaret told us that as we were staying for three nights we had been given the suite at no extra costs. The room was excellent with furnishing and decorations to a very high standard. The views out to sea and along the cliffs were stunning.
Being so close to Rosslare ferry terminal I can imagine that most guests use Clifford House as a stopover either before or after a ferry crossing. Those that do miss out on a wealth of places to visit. The totally unspoilt beaches nearby, the Harbour at Carna, Lady`s Island lake, Kilmore Quay, Johnstown Castle, Tacumshin Windmill, St Helens beach, golf course and many more places within a very short drive or a longer walk along the cliff top and beach paths that are adjacent to the house. The bustling historic town of Wexford with its many places to eat is about a twenty minute drive. Wexford is an old Viking Town and well worth a visit.
In short Clifford House is an outstanding place to stay. It’s not like staying at a B&B it’s more like being a house guest of a friend. It ticks all the boxes. It is an ideal base to explore parts of County Wexford that most people miss as they speed away from the ferries. Great for walkers and birdwatchers. Highly recommended.
