Cuasnog B&B/Self Catering Apartment
Ranked #10 of 29 Wexford B&B and Inns
Reviewed August 18, 2013

Can only add to the many compliments already expressed. Warm welcome on arrival, informative and helpful Caitriona sent us off with a map to find a late swim, and gave us directions to the ideal (and late serving) Greenacres for supper. Comfy bed, excellent coffee, 7.00am breakfast, all the food just what I would serve up at home, or even better; we would have liked to stay for more than one night, and to explore Wexford. Maybe another time....

We stayed one night with friends. There are three rooms and we used them all so were the only guests. This is a friendly family-run B&B using locally sourced produce, some from the garden outside!

Breakfast was delicious and the scones on arrival were a lovely surprise. However without a separate sitting room for guests I felt a little like we were imposing on the family space.

I also felt it was expensive and it would have felt cramped had we not been all one group.

Overall a positive experience and would certainly recommend the wine bar as a place to eat and drink in the town.

This cozy little B&B is right near the centre of Wexford though very tricky to find with the "help" of our GPS (all of the streets in Wexford have a different name each block it seems). Once there, though, Caitriona was very warm and welcoming, asking us to join her in the dining room along with other arriving guests for a late afternoon tea and snack. We stayed in the first back bedroom and it was a small but inviting room, very quiet and comfortable. Caitriona's breakfast the next morning was truly top notch, probably the best breakfast via B&B that we had on our weeklong tour of the island. She made porridge taste delightfully sinful, and her eggs and bread were beyond peer. I would note that Wexford town largely rolls up its sidewalk by 7 pm so if you arrive with any desire to explore get here earlier rather than later. The other thing to note if you arrive by car: parking is very tricky (and if you arrive when the street is metered is also very expensive) but if concerned just ask the hostess and she will help you out.

A great stay at a great B&B! This was the first place we stayed in after landing at Rosslare from the ferry. It was a 20 minute drive and Catriona and Theo were waiting for us when we arrived. The breakfasts are as good as everyone else has reviewed them, and so too is Catriona and Theo's hospitality. The bedrooms and beds were warm despite arctic weather and Catriona gave us some good tips for exploring Wexford. If you have children, try the Hook lighthouse. We drank coffee and watched seals whilst our two children painted a clay plaque with a resident artist! We have already recommended Cusanog to relatives who will be visiting Wexford in the summer.

All of the glowing reviews are 100% accurate. The stay would be worth it if only to try out Caitriona's homemade scones and the Full Irish breakfast (with a drop of Full Irish whiskey for your oatmeal). But Caitriona and Theo run Cuasnog incredibly well with a combination of laid-back friendliness, deep commitment to their community and knowledge of local culture (as well as any practical advice or directions you might need). The house is immaculate, warm, and beautifully furnished. .

Not normally one to gush on review sites, but this one's the real deal.

Me and my girlfriend have stayed one week in Ireland, staying in 3 different B&B.
Cuasnog B&B was the best one! Warm, very clean and Caitriona's hospitality...you could not ask for more. Great breakfast too! Highly reccomended!
As I have the same business in Italy, I know what I am saying.
