This was my favorite place on our whole stay! Tom and Margaret are lovely people, extremely genuine, and very helpful with making plans in the area. We even got engaged in the little village of Ballycotton while staying there (did you know that Margaret? :-)! The area is pristine with breathtaking views, and the warm welcome we received there truly gave us a wonderful Irish experience with hospitality. I'm definitely planning on making another stop here on our next visit!

Susan and Clark


Our family thoroughly enjoyed the genuine hospitality provided by Margaret and Tom. The location was the best of all the B and B's with a stunning view of the ocean and the lighthouse. The food was delicious and the accommodations wonderful. After traveling all day, it was so relaxing. We hope to go back some day and spend more time with Margaret and Tom and enjoy the surrounding community.

I ll never forget that b&b in Ireland! Tom and Margaret were so kind and the setting of this farm was outstunning! We stayed in a wonderful room,overlooking the beach and the lighthouse on the island in front of us. We walked along the beach after a splendid breakfast including all we could wish! We were so lucky to stay two nights and would have stayed longer if we had been able to. We felt so calm and quiet after being travelling around a few days. Thanks a lot and warm greetings to Tom and Margaret! We will come back❤️



Margaret is great! We talked with her and her daughter for a long time and they gave us tips and helped plan the rest of our trip. The views are beautiful and it is a quick walk to the beach. We drove to a near by hotel for dinner and had great fish and chips. It was a great stay and is highly recommended!
