We stayed the last weekend of their open season so the bar didn’t have a lot of choices for beer, but the food was great. The service was quick and friendly and the room was clean and comfy. Would definitely stay again.

Excellent B&B, Irene and all the staff are amazing, so friendly and welcoming. Food is top quality and the freshly cooked breakfast sets you up for a great day. It’s a 10 out of 10 from us. Looking forward to returning in 2024

Had a wonderful stay at Heron’s Cove. The food and friendliness’s of Irene was welcomed. Had a great time at the local pub with the friendly people and Finn Barre at the Lobster Pot as a delight.
