I've just had a wonderful time at Ard Ciuin. My stay was to attend their 5-day intensive swimming course. This involved a one-hour private swimming class each morning, followed by an hour's practice later in the day, followed by a divine soak in their outdoor hot (really hot!) tub. The food was really good. Super breakfasts and absolutely delicious dinners... More

The accommodation was ideal, extremely clean and nicely decorated. Breakfast was brilliant - by far the best 'fry up' we've had - and was followed each day by delicious homemade banana... More

Me and my mum have just come back from staying at the ard na ciuin guesthouse. We had such a lovely time and cant thank lynette and trev enough for their hospitality & delicious food.

The location is stunning, the facilities excellent and the food divine....esp the freshly made muffins Lynette provides. In terms of learning to swim, this is the perfect environment, the pool is incredible and Tracey is the most amazing instructor. There was plenty of opportunity... More

I went with 5 others just before Christmas for a two-hour hot tub party and had a fabulous time. The hosts, Trevor and Lynette, were incredibly nice and accommodating. The hot tub itself was fab – lots of room for the 6 of us – as was the complimentary fizz. Trevor and Lynette also did food and we had a... More

Nothing seemed too much trouble! We were met with a genuinely warm and friendly welcome from Trevor and sustenance of homemade bikkies and coffee. The breakfasts were delicious (fresh fruit, yogurt, cereals and cooked food to a high standard) and we also had a 2 course meal in the evening which included homegrown fresh veg which tasted really yummy.
