Our hosts Paddy and Julia gave us a warm welcome. Although we didn't have a reservation, they made us feel at home. I cannot say enough about their very special house. It is filled with antiques and memorability. We stayed in the mirror room which had, of course, a huge mirror at the head of the bed and mirrors throughout....

What a warm welcome we received from Paddy on arrival. He allowed us to have a look at a couple of the amazing rooms and make our choice. The rooms are clean and all have a different theme, really funky and interesting. There is a large guest area with open fires, books and magazines. Breakfast was outstanding, the brown bread...

We stayed in the Napoleon room for 1 night whilst driving the Wild Atlantic Way. The room was beautifully decorated, with a little sitting room and Juliette balcony looking out over the quay. Paddy and Julia were very welcoming and helpful with recommendations of places to go nearby (the Sailing Club at the end of the road is a great...

This is a high quality B&B. It's a beautiful period property where every bedroom is decorated differently. We were there for 1 night, and when we arrived we were greeted with a warm welcome. We stayed in the 'Safari ' room and it was a very comfortable, spotless with a fire....bliss. Fabulous breakfast with a variety of options. Worth a...

We stayed Easter weekend. It really is a pleasure to stay in a place where the owners are there and and genuinely take time to make the stay as comfortable as possible. Paddy and Julia were wonderful hosts and you can tell they've been in the business a long time. They know the business and do it right. We received...

We came there for three nights. We had the room "Sauvage". It was really lovely with a lovely view on the harbor. Julia and her husband are very kind. We've been happy to sleep in their guest house. Thanks again Amandine & Julien from France

Rare mixture of quality accommodation, eclectic furnishing, and gregarious friendly hosts...this three floor Inn is 5-10 mins walk from the town centre, located on the quayside overlooking the tidal basin. Super-owners Paddy & Julia go the extra mile to make guests feel welcome, and pugs Banjo and Blossom add to the fun. 'Interesting interiors' says their website, and every room...

We just chanced upon this lovely inn right on the inner harbor and didn't want to leave. The owners are outstandingly friendly even by the standards of Ireland where so many people are so friendly and nice. The breakfast was extraordinary. This is what a B&B should be..you shouldn't want to leave. Be sure to check out the Sky Road.

I stayed 3 nights here. The accommodation is spectacular, unique and comfortable. It is well situated by the sea side, close to the main town centre. The town is well equipped for tourists. Paddy & Julia are great hosts, and do a mean breakfast
