We were very impressed by Great Keppel and the stay we had recently. Alvis was so friendly and nothing was too much trouble including the use of a phone charger. She was a font of all useful local information as well. The room was at the back of the house and was very quiet with a splendid view over the... More

There is parking if you are driving and two convenient bus routes (32 & 102) if you are not. Breakfasts are large and tasty and Alvis will cater for... More

A warm welcome and a hearty breakfast made the trip most enjoyable. Alvis was extremely helpful and enlightening and even dropped me off at the golf course. It was a pity she was unable to caddy for me!

This is the first time my wife and I have stayed in a B&B. I noticed the B&B the last time we stayed in the area then found them on the internet to have a look. The owners Alvis and her husband Ray could not have been more helpful throughout our stay. They were full of useful advice which made... More

We stayed here in July and absolutely loved it! Alvis and Ray were very welcoming and accommodating, even though we arrived late at night. We stayed three nights and the traditional Irish breakfast was delicious and plentiful every day. We had both tea and coffee drinkers, and we wanted rashers and sausage, and Alvis kept everyone happy and fed! Our... More

Stayed over the weekend, at the Great Keppel, whilst attending a celebratory party in Portmarnock. Ray was on his own, as Alvis was away but he did a fabulous job and maintained the standards of hospitality that people in previous posts have praised so highly.
