I booked this B&B based on the excellent reviews it had already received in Tripadvisor. We were greeted politely by a girl who was definately rushing (probably back to work in Londis which is attached) and who suggested we pay up front since it was her day off on Monday (our check out day) and we might have to wait around if we wanted to pay then. Not a great start, definately felt we were an inconvenience. Its true the place is spotless, very new, very comfortable beds (some of the best I've been in), fantastic shower pressure and decent size room. Breakfast was standard fare. But it was like staying in a motel. Once we had checked in that was all we saw of any staff - we had been looking for recommendations for places to eat, place to walk etc but there was no one to ask. 'Sterile' is the word I would use. If I'd wanted that I would have booked an anonymous chain hotel. I wanted to stay in a guesthouse/B&B for the friendly and local service but it was not to be. Still we had a great break made all the better by a jazz funk band which was playing in Tully's pub up the road - they were fab! As for 'The Tide Full Inn' restaurant, great antipasti but just about average pizza and tiramisu. Overall I think I would stay in Ballyvaughan if I was heading that direction again. NB. It was off season when we stayed in Kinvara so that probably explains the lack of staff and athmosphere.
