“Hidden Gem in Black Sod Bay”
Reviewed August 20, 2010

On arrival we were welcomed by Hannah owner of Liam Siar and were very pleased with our room. The family room was very spacious with a en-suite shower room and extremely clean with fresh clean linen and towels. The following morning after a very good sleep we were offered a range of cereal , fruit , yogurt , juices, bread and fresh baked scones for breakfast. Also there was a choice of having a tasty full cooked irish breakfast .
I felt really at home at this B&B and nothing was too much trouble for our hosts Hannah and Gerry. They were able to recommend local restaurants/ pubs for our evening meals and were great for all local information.We ate at the local golf course and would fully recommend it the food was superb.
The B&B is located at Black Sod Bay which is a beautiful part of county mayo very unspoilt .Our girls loved the 30 seconds walk to the local beach each morning to watch the boats and to play on the sand.
Hospitality was even extended to my husband's family when they visited us. There is plenty of parking with easy access to the property.

When you find somewhere worthwhile it's worth spreading the news. This guest house is well worth a visit, we picked it because of previous Trip Advisor comments. We were given a great welcome by the owner, a choice of which room suited our needs best, excellent advice on where to eat that evening and a superb breakfast the following morning. This owner is a true innkeeper and tries to anticipate the guests every need. The surronding countryside is spectacular and if your are travelling near here then stay here or if you want to get away from it all then try it. It's not often I wish that a stay was longer.

The best B&B we have ever stayed in.
The first thing we need to mention is that the people who run this B&B have to be the nicest people you will ever meet.
We stayed in Liam SIar just before the Christmas. From the minute i rang Hannah everything was sorted. Hannah and husband Jerry did everything they possibly could to make our stay one we would never forget. We got engaged that evening we arived in Blacksod and it has to be said that only for Hannah, Gerry and their friends Vincent and Dorin, who kindly showed us around the lighthouse, the evening could not have gone any better. These people made us feel so welcomed and comfortable, it made the evening all the more special. Hannah had also arranged for us to have food in what i can only say is the best kept secret of the west of Ireland. We had dinner that evening in the Ciarn restaurant in the golf club. Once again, the people who owned this restaurant were welcoming and so friendly. The food there has to be mentioned and has to be one of the finest feeds i have had in years. We will definitely be going back. After the food it was down to the local watering hole of teach John Joe, where the craic was in full swing.
The next morning we woke to the wild scenery of the west atlantic coast. After a short walk to the pier and lighthouse to clear the heads, we sat down to a lovely traditional irish breakfast. Once again, Hannah and Gerry had pulled out all the stops and had some personal momentos for us to take away with us. These people and their friends/neighbours really could not have done anymore to make our stay so special and unforgetable. We are now planning when we will get a chance to go back!! We cann't wait.

we stayed in quite cold month, in the first days of April, but eventhough place is just beautiful - perfect for quiet weekend away.

House is new and modern, rooms are comfortable and spotless clean. Hannah is such a lovely person, nothing was too much trouble for her and she made us constantly like at home.

Breakfast was just beautiful, we even have found food for people with coeliac disease, what is impossible in 4*-5* stars hotels in European countries.

I would definitely recommend this B&B - I am sure if we will be in this part of Ireland we will be staying here again.

We stayed with Hannah for the August bank-holiday weekend. Had a large family room with extremely comfortable beds! Room spotless and everything provided. Nothing was too much trouble for her and she made us feel instantly welcome and at home. Breakfast was plentiful and tasty and again Hannah was delighted to cater to all tastes. If you want old fashioned hospitality in a most beautiful part of Ireland I have no hesitation recommending Leim Siar. Thanks Hannah for a lovely stay despite the typical Irish weather!

A very nice and clean B&B in a nice surrounding in Blacksod, Bellmullet.
Hannah is a very friendly Host and a faboulous cook. She cooked us a great meal for a great price.
Breakfast incl. a variation of Irish Cheese was also great.
The rooms are very clean and you can also use the living room for sitting on the fire.
