It was our 6th time in this B&B and as every year, we had lovely days thanks to Barbara's hospitality. Nice bedroom and breakfast and fine location to visit Connemara. Barbara recommended very nice walks in Connemara. We are looking forward to go again to this B&B and in Ireland

I must compliment this b and b in providing two comfortable chairs in the bedroom, so many places only have on and husbands have to sit on the bed to watch tv. Not that we watched much as we were tired for the sightseeing in this beautiful part of the world. Barbara welcomed us warmly and as the day was... More

This was my first b&b experience and my husband and I left with high expectations for any other b&b we would visit. From the moment we walked in the door we felt so welcome. Barbara greeted us and right away offered us some tea and carrot cake that was delicious, very nice touch especially since we had already had a... More

For the first time ever I feel like writing a review. Hillside House is absolutely perfect. It is beautifully decorated throughout and has breathtaking views from all of the windows. Everything is spotless, bed sheets, floors, bathroom…every surface. Super nice, welcoming hosts and warm interior make this place very special. I would highly recommend it.

Loved this B and B, although slightly up the road from Main Street it was easily accessible for walking, very updated and comfortable. Breakfast was great- host was lovely and accommodating. Beautiful home. Little higher priced but decor and atmosphere was very welcoming. Will recommend to my friends.

Barbara is the friendliest host, very attentionate. The place is spotless and offers beautiful views on surrounding mountains and the bay, including from the room. The landscape is both stunning and quiet. Nice hike just behind the house. Highly recommended.
