Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed July 25, 2012

Wonderful experience. We were an hour late arriving, and they kept the restaurant open for us and fed us a full dinner! Friendly, family owned and run facility. Shamus and Aiofa are excellent hosts. They socialized with us in their bar after dinner and in the living room before and after dinner. The rooms were spacious and clean. The bathrooms were spotless and updated with excellent facilities.

What a great place! My friends and I have been coming here for ten years and it is just terrific. Right next door to the great Ballybunion golf club with the practice range just across the road so the position is perfect. But the real treat at Teach de Broc is the Irish hospitality. Seamus and Aoife are wonderful hosts with nothing too much trouble. Just visit!

After considerable searching for a place to stay we arrived at Teach de Broc, attracted by the golf course and views. And we managed to scoop the last available room but little did we realize what a find this hotel is! From parking our car till checkout the next morning, we were treated to wonderful service, excellent dinner and breakfast and detailed attention to our comfort. They even helped us troubleshoot our computer and anticipated our needs. Rooms are modern and spotless, the sitting area is attractive with fresh flower arrangements and the staff was efficient. This family run hotel is truly a gem!

My friend and I stayed two nights during our Ireland golf vacation last summer.
The reason why every review mentions Aoife and Seamus by name is because they are such warm and hospitable hosts. The room was comfortable, quiet, and spacious. The adjoining restaurant is marvelous, with very high standards. Each morning, breakfast was a treat.
We were given great advice on tackling the Old Course and Cashen, driving routes, where to get a better rental car (next time), and bouts of great conversation. Our golf tour organizer gets the credit for having us stay here, but I just don't see a reason to ever stay anywhere else the next time I visit

We had a party of 9 golfers. When I booked the hotel it wasn't clear that it was only a 7 iron from the entrance to Ballybunion and opposite the driving range. Which was handy. It was a 20 min wlak into town or a short taxi ride. The hotel was nice claen and modern. The Irish President had visited the day before. We had a nice meal. Overall it was a good choice if playing golf.

My wife and I stayed two nights during our golfing trip in mid May. Without any doubt, it provided the warm and cozy feel were were looking for after slashing it around the links next door. Owners Aoife and Shamus run a clean tight ship. Our bedroom was spacious and well appointed and the meals were simply fantastic. Perhaps the best feature of our stay was how engaging all the guests and owners became during the late evenings, with everyone participated in the good "craic":.
If your travelling through the Ballybunion area, or planning a golf trip, we would highly recommend Teach de Broc - simple the best!

My husband and I just returned home from 2 weeks of travel thru Ireland. After talking over our wonderful time we feel the need to acknowledge our awesome 3 day stay with Aiofe and Seamus at Teach de Broc. Our accomadations were superior to any other place we stayed and I appreciated how clean and comfortable they were. Aiofe was so helpful and I was made to feel at home while my husband was enjoying great golf. The breakfasts and dinners were excellent and the conversations with Seamus, Aiofe and their son Dermot were so enjoyable at the end of the day. We will be back!
