My wife and I were very pleased with the accommodations and the area. Mr. Eugene and Mrs. Teresa were wonderful hosts. The room was verycomfortable and clean. The breakfast was quite tasty as well. The view was outstanding. The hosts were very friendly and provided insight into our stay which was very valuable to our travels. We will definitely stay again if we find ourselves in that area.

We had a wonderful stay at Wayside. Eugene and Theresa were very welcoming. Our room was great and the breakfast fabulous! We had a few good nights down at Kate Kearneys. Beautiful location, the gap of Dunloe was very impressive.

The view from this B&B was breathtakingly beautiful and the nearby pub (Kate Kearney's Cottage served up lovely meals & delightful entertainment. The B&B hosts were nice & accommodating. The room was clean but very small and cold (cramped space even with just one carry-on suitcase)(only one wall outlet). Since there was no ensuite bathroom, it was nice that the room had a tiny sink to wash your face & brush your teeth. Satisfactory for one night's stay but sadly, the house smelled of cigarette smoke. We would not recommend this B&B for more than 1 night's stay.

Thanks Judy and Bernie for yer review.I am sorry ye felt the room was cold,as the radiator was on and the electric blanket plugged in and the bed warm.Ye booked a standard room which means not en-suite and I had en-suite rooms if ye wished to book one.It is our family home not a hotel so one cannot expect hotel facilities and one wall outlet is the norm and my husband provided ye with an adapter which was capable of taking 3 plugs.
