My husband and I got a Groupon deal for The Wooden House. Value for money was excellent with two nights B&B and a three course meal included! Kilmore Quay is a great location with a fishing port, two beaches (either side), a few shops, chipper, restaurant, playground, 2 pubs and plenty of fresh fish all in a nice setting.
We stayed in one of the annex rooms of The Wooden House which was very basic. I had been looking forward to a bath for a few days (as we don't have one at home) but unfortunately there was no bath - the bathroom was basic with toilet, sink, shower but the shower head was broken so had to be held. There was a huge space in the bedroom next to the ensuite where a chair / small couch would not have gone amiss. There was a nice sea view from the room and it was kept warm with a heater and the sun shining in. There was a nice courtyard to sit in outside of the annex (sheltered from the wind). The room was clean although there was a pair of knickers which must have got left behind in one of the drawers so we binned these!
The breakfast was average. The evening meal however was much superior to the local restaurant 'The Silver Fox' and better value for money. The portions were generous and food fresh, tasty and well presented. We thoroughly enjoyed all three courses - and wished we had eaten here for our two nights! The pub/restaurant itself is on the chilly side and very bright in the evenings - with glaring lights. There is a stove (gas) but it doesn't give out much heat. There is a nice casual atmosphere with plenty of folk around at the weekend especially.
The staff are very friendly and accommodating.
