We enjoyed it so much at this place! Very welcoming, amazing food and just cozy. We arrived during the wet part of November, and just felt so cozy to pull up to this place, especially with the great options from the restaurant available. We did wish we had a little dryer days to explore more around us because it was such a beautiful location.

Great dinner and breakfast, secure location away from the tropic storm that blew in on us. The view from the room was wonderful.

We only stayed one night but this was our favorite place in Ireland. The food was fantastic as was the location. The rooms are not up to date, but that is part of the charm of the place. The bay view was gorgeous. The location was quiet and serene. It reminded us of our home in Florida. I would like to come back just to stay there and relax and enjoy more of the area. The staff was superb.

Beautiful, serene B&B wih a great restaurant and friendly staff. Room was quiet with a balcony overlooking the cove. The area is so quiet you can actually hear the tide go out. Breakfast was superb and the chef makes whatever you want to eat. There's a mini-buffet with toast, jam, and cereals. Take a ride south to enjoy spectacular views of the south Irish Sea and the Atlantic.

An eclectic place which we find delightful and relaxing and embraces the best of Ireland, both in food and location. We think it's good value and quality - this was our fifth or sixth visit over 10 years. We fervently hope to come again. Those running it (they are really too invested in in all to call them staff) have been there for a good while, and meeting them again adds to the pleasure.
