Stayed here with our Canadian visitors. Warm welcome from our hosts. Rooms clean, comfortable with views to impress. Excellent breakfast served by Sam, again enjoying the view. Professional and friendly hosts, deserving 5* rating.

We stayed one night at Rockhaven and definitely this is the best B&B that I've ever been to. Sam and his wife are great hosts and we had a nice chat. The room is very spacious and cozy. I really recommend.

Can't say enough about the owners Heather and Sam- of all the places we stayed in Ireland, they were the warmest and most available to share information- and that is saying a lot as everyone was nice. The views from the breakfast room were stunning and our room (#4) was newly renovated. Just be aware that it is a little... More
