We stayed one night in October and wished we could have stayed longer. We will definitely stay here again on future visits to the island.
The building is a substantial country home with comfortable guest lounges. Our rooms were very spacious, with comfortable beds and well appointed ensuites. My room didn't have a great view, but my brother had a lovely view looking up the fort. We checked in late afternoon after doing a drive around mini-bus tour. The driver left us there and drove the rest of the group back to their ferry. After checking in we walked down to the lovely beach, gorgeous white/grey sand and the clearest water I've seen in the UK or Ireland. Then we walked up to the fort. Being evening we had the place to ourselves and sat listening to the waves crashing on the cliffs, the birds singing and watched the sunset over the water. Perfect. We walked back down to the B&B and cleaned up for dinner. Wi-fi was working fine in the rooms as well. Though my room didn't have a TV, there is TV in the guest lounge downstairs (and a lovely open fire).
Treasa and Bertie were most hospitable and Bertie drove us and the other couple staying there down to a local pub for dinner and picked us up afterwards. After a restful and peaceful nights sleep we had a wonderful breakfast in the pleasant breakfast room and then waited in the lounge for our airport shuttle pick up.
We had landed on the island in the morning and the airport shuttle was happy to drive us straight out to the B&B, though we requested to be dropped in the village to begin with, and they put us down for a pick up as well, so our transport was arranged within minutes of landing! Most convenient. Arriving by ferry I don't think you'll have an issue either. We were walking around the village before the ferry arrived and several mini-bus drivers were offering to either drop us at the B&B on their way out or at the end of the tour, which is what we ended up doing.
Delightful stay on the island and wouldn't hesitate to stay here again. Absolutely perfect B&B and hospitality!
