Reviewed yesterday NEW

Decided to do a bit of touring around the emerald isle, and headed down to North Kerry. Well seasoned at this stage in staying in Guest houses and B&Bs. However, this little jewel in the crown simply took our breath away. Both inside and outside! The rooms are so spotless, you could literally eat your meal off them. No exaggerating!...

Most beautiful room of any B&B we have ever visited. Owner very knowledge about Ballybunion golf course, which is one of two main reasons for visit. Terrific service and food. Very helpful in suggesting places to eat, etc.

A great place to stay. Good breakfast. Very friendly and helpful suggestions about things to do. David also had good tips for the Balybunion golf course, which is amazing. Don't forget to eat the local seafood chowder and visit the John B. Keane's Pub in nearby Listowel.
