“The over riding feeling from our stay was that we were slightly in the way of Georgina and her family's lives”
Reviewed 7 July 2011

As previously mentioned in earlier reviews the B&B is well located and is walking distance to the quaint main street. It is clean and tidy and we secured free parking at the underground car park opposite, under the Whites hotel. I had noted from previous reviews that the hospitality was supposed to be great and was, therefore, disappointed to discover the tone of the landlady (Georgina) who made me question if this was a different person to the one from previous reviews. She is a strong personality lady who perhaps needs to treat her customers with some grace as she had an annoying habit of contradicting anything we said and regularly talked over us whilst doing something else. The over riding feeling from our stay was that we were slightly in the way of her and her family's lives. This reminded me why I prefer to stay in hotels these days.

As previously stated, the establishment is clean but the rooms are very small. We could barely walk around the bed in the room. The place does not have a communal room for guests so the pokey nature of the rooms felt more oppressive. The bathroom was the size of a cupboard although admitedly the appliances were new, but even the sink was the size of a cereal bowl. The wifi was a good signal throughout the house and the sound insulation from outside noise was adequate.

The breakfast was okay. However, we were served cheap sausages, salty bacon and a tablespoon of beans each morning we stayed (and instant coffee one morning). I couldn't help thinking that the B&B could have been just a little more imaginative by serving local produce and perhaps displaying a picture of the local farm from where the produce originated (a B&B in Wales did this and gave the breakfast experience a local and personal touch). Instead it felt that the sausages and bacon had been sourced from the local Tesco superstore and at that from the bargain aisle.

Scattered around the walls are "don't do" signs such as not using towels for make up removal, no smoking or you will be ejected, credit card payments will incur additonal fees etc. Very welcoming. I wondered if my perception of the experience had been affected by having stayed in top notch hotels around the world. Perhaps. But I do not believe that I should suffer a poor customer experience when I am paying 70 Euros for the room.

Tips on visiting the area: if you have a car drive to Arthurstown and go on the Ferry to Passage East in Waterford and drive to Dunmore East, a beautiful fishing village (we eat outdoors at the Cliff restaurant). Also, try to visit Hook Head ( we ate at the Village Kitchen in Slade). Both restaurants were very decent places at affordable prices. Bear in mind that Ireland still thinks there is a boom going on and most restaurants are still living in cloud cookoo land by seeking main course meals for 38 Euros. Shop around.

We made a lst minute change in plans to watch a hurling match in Wexford. Received a recommendation for Abbey House and was glad we followed the advice. The room was simple without much character, but was very clean and had plenty of space. Breakfast was also very good. Free parking across the street at the Whites hotel. Very convenient. Location was very close to the restaurant / entertainment area. Also an easy walk to the waterfront area.

Overall - a nice B&B for a very reasonable price.

Lovely BnB. Georgina and Bernard are excellent hosts. Wonderful cooked breakfasts. Fresh and piping hot. Nothing is too much trouble for these guys. Would definitely recommend this BnB and will definitely be going back.

Myself and a friend stayed in this B -n- B for one night in March 2010 and it was an absolutely fabulous experience. Georgina (the owner) was amazing, very kind, friendly and accomodating. The room was homey and spacious, and very clean. We had a full Irish breakfast the next morning, and it was unbelievable that was received the service we did for the cost of the stay. I would HIGHLY recommend this accomodation to anyone staying in Wexford. You won't be disappointed.
