“Nice B&B”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 26, 2012

A short drive to Ballina, County Mayo. Murphy Brothers was a great pub for food. The B&B was very nice, breakfast was very good and Breege was very helpful.

I may not be able to pronounce the name of the place *laugh* but Breege made us feel very welcome in this wonderfully appointed and comfortable B&B. Our room was spacious and had everything we needed including a bunch of information on things to do in the area. After welcoming and getting us settled Breege gave us a recommendation to a very nice pub/restaurant just down the road. Morning Breakfast was deliciously prepared with a fine selection of Irish breakfast favorites. The house is conveniently located and is a great base for the exploration of Ireland's often overlooked Northwest. Nearby Sligo and Donegal are wonderful places to experience the traditional Irish fishing based culture of the northwest where Irish Gaelic is still the primary language. I hope to be able to return here and spend more time.

We stayed only one night at this guest house on a flying visit, yet it left a lasting impression due to the very warmest of welcomes we received. Hosts John and Breege are just great and they could not have done more for us, in fact, they went above and beyond to help us with a couple of things we needed to sort when we were in Ireland. The house is very comfortable and spotlessly clean. Be prepared to drool as Breege is a top notch baker and the wafts of home baked wheaten bread and scones etc will definitely get your attention! As for breakfast - well, it was fab and plenty of choice and quantity! They have thoughtfully provided information on things to do etc.

The house is on the edge of the town, which is nice as it is really quiet. Loads of room for car parking in their private ground to the rear of the house.

We would definitely stay there again and have no trouble recommending it to others.

We stayed at Quignalegan House for one night on our way from Connemara to Donegal.
The house is incredibly clean and tidy. We felt like staying at a doll's house!
The bed was comfy and we had plenty of information about the different places to see in the region. We were given some advice for dinner but ended up going to town. Free wifi access. The bathroom was fine. Breakfast was plentiful. We took the Irish breakfast but there was different menus to choose from, as well as the usual cereals/toasts/juice... Most of it is homemade and you can tell!
The lady was very kind and actually even trying too hard to please. It's a shame because we're not the kind of people who liked to be fussed about although I understand that this would please some.
But we would recommend this B&B anyway!

Came to Ballina last year looking for my ancestors. The family at Quignalegan House practically did all of my research for me (we discovered that my family was actually from Inniscrone!). My anecdotes aside, this was a great place to stay. And the best breakfast we had on our trip!

Very clean and tidy. The owners were very friendly and helpful and the rooms were well appointed. The only downside is that there was used soap in the shower.
