“WONDERFUL”
Reviewed January 26, 2014 via mobile

We stayed at Padua for six days before moving on to Dublin for a couple of nights.
Richard and Nicky made us feel welcome from the moment we pulled up in the drive.
We were given a lovely room, overlooking the front lawns, with a double bed, satellite TV, tea and coffee facilities and an en-suite shower room. All very clean and charming.
Every morning we came down the stairs to find a fantastic breakfast layout waiting for us.
Proper, fresh, orange juice. Fresh fruit salad. Different breads including Irish soda bread and toast.
A full Irish breakfast was available but we could only manage on our first and last mornings. It was huge!
We can recommend the Irish marmalade on toast.
There is a sitting room available for those who have the time to chill out before bed time. "Chill" is probably the wrong word as they have a lovely log burner in the room keeping it very snug.
We will be staying at Padua the next time we are in the south of Ireland and would not hesitate to recommend it to anyone who is catching the local ferry or staying for a bit longer.
We wish this couple every success in there new venture and look forward to seeing the refurbished property on our holiday there this year.

Stayed December 2013, traveled as a couple

As we were travelling on to East Clare, we decided to stay overnight at the Padua B & B and also to stay overnight on our return before catching the early morning ferry. It was ideally situated just a few minutes from the Rosslare port and we had a very warm welcome from Nicola & Richard who have very recently taken over the B & B from Helen & Willie. Our room and ensuite were spotless and extremely comfortable with little touches such as hand lotion and matching handwash. There was a great selection of food for breakfast from full English down to fresh fruit and yoghurts. The bread was to die for.

On our return trip, we purchased some snacks to eat in the B & B and Helen set a table for us in the dining room and Richard made us a pot of tea plus good quality biscuits. This service was above and beyond what we might have expected for the cost of staying there. Because we needed to leave early in the morning, breakfast was provided at just the right time to allow us to get to the ferry with time to spare.

We would certainly visit Padua again and woiuld recommend it to anyone travelling through Southern Ireland.

Room Tip: We were given the downstairs bedroom because it had a shower suitable for my husband who is disable...

This B&B is fine for an overnight stop when arriving in Ireland on the ferry from Fishguard. It is very close to the port on a very busy road. There is nothing nearby in the way of good restuarants, only a few poor pubs. The rooms were small and there was a lot of traffic noise.

Room Tip: If you don't arrive late as we did you would do better to drive on to Waterford.

We stayed at Padua on May 29 for one night prior to the ferry next morning. Perfect location with Helen & Willie being excellent hosts. Warm welcome into a lovely room with all you would want for a longer stay and seemed a shame to only be there overnight. Ample dinner choices nearby.
Excellent breakfast next morning served nice and early so no pressure to be on time for the ferry.
We would recommend Padua to anyone as over our 6 week trip, we paid a lot more for places nowhere near this standard.

Helen and William made us very welcome. Their bed and breakfast is conveniently located very close to the Rosslare Harbour.

Our room was immaculately clean and tidy with a very nice ensuite. We had a brilliant TV, and the bed was very comfortable, just right for our last night in Ireland.

Breakfast was made early as Helen understood the need for catching the ferry.

We recently stayed at Padua overnight prior to catching the morning ferry from Rosslare. The property was easy to find, about a five minute drive from the ferry terminal. We were greeted by our host Willie who we found out later was responsible (along with his partner Helen) for the quality renovations that have been undertaken and shown to our room, with spacious ensuite, at the back of the house which was impeccably presented. Willie also assisted us with suggestions and directions to local eateries a short drive away for our evening meal. (We ate at the Chinese restaurant near the beach on the Rosslare Strand prior to taking a walk along the beach in the twilight- an enjoyable final experience of Ireland where we chatted with local fishermen who shared with us their first catch and their wonderfully ironic sense of humour)
After a very comfortable nights rest we were greeted by the friendly and very hospitable Helen who offered a choice of light or full cooked breakfast, including gluten free options meeting my dietary requirements. (Helen has an excellent understanding of the gluten free diet as a family member also requires this diet). We would strongly recommend this accommodation to anyone wanting a comfortable nights rest, a hearty (or light) breakfast served by friendly and hospitable Irish hosts prior to boarding the ferry to Wales.

Room Tip: Room at the back of property was very quiet and comfortable.

We stayed in the family room which was really spacious and comfortable. The ensuite was a good size and the beds comfy.
Helen and Willie made us really welcome and were very accommodating of the kids. Helen gave us some great suggestions on where to eat and what to do around the area.
Breakfast was beautiful and very filling. We all enjoyed our stay and would happily recommend Padua B&B to others.
