“Nice Bed and Breakfast, Just a short walk from town”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 23, 2013

When our group arrived here we were told this was a more "rustic" place than our previous B&B. Couldn't figure where that comment came from unless it had something to do with hot water not being available at all hours! I quickly learned that I shouldn't get up at 5:30 am and expect a hot shower. Do expect a place that is clean and comfortable. Well equiped ensuite rooms. And a lovely breakfast with a multitude of choices hot or cold. When you walk to town be sure to visit MacCarthy's Bar of the book by the same name!

I stayed here with two friends when we were travelling around the area. It is located only a short stroll from the village but you need to follow the signs to find it. When you do, it's worth it. Nice clean rooms, a good bed, good pillows, a good shower and a great breakfast. Con the owner is very warm and friendly and couldn't be more helpful. He went out of his way to find a charger for my phone etc.

Ideal location for a short stroll into town, room was nice with a powerful shower, sound proofing is poor so take your earplugs. Breakfast is cooked to order, excellent quality and choice. Cornelius was very helpful. We'd stay again if we're in the area. You can't fault this for value for money.

We stayed at Summerhill for 4 nights from May 28th to June 1st 2013. We would thoroughly recommend staying at Summerhill. The room was very light, airy, clean and comfortable. The breakfast was excellent and we received a friendly welcome from the owner, Cornelius O'Sullivan for whom nothing was too much trouble.

I have visited Summer Hill B & B twice now; 2 years ago with my cousin Patrick and last year with my friend Linda, and I can't wait to go back again this year. Neil O'Sullivan is THE BEST. He could not do enough for us. Neil makes you feel like you are at home. He does no crowd you; but is there to answer any questions you may have. The place is beautiful and clean.

Neil you are the best!! We love you!!

I stayed here for two nights in April and found it clean and warm. The owner is very friendly. It was cheaper to stay two nights than one. Had a lovely walk around Dunboy castle as recommended by the owner.
