I loved this cute little place! The location is awesome because it’s only a few miles from the Ceide Fields Visitors Center. The area is a bit off the beaten trail so finding reasonable accommodations and food close by could be a challenge if I did t find this spot. Stephen and Eileen are very kind and welcoming and the room was cozy, warm, clean and quiet with a view off the Atlantic and lots of cute sheep. Breakfast was good and they kindly sorted me a vegetarian meal (I don’t eat meat). Dinner was great as well - the fish and veggies were fresh and delicious. Even the other people staying were terrific. I’m going back in a couple of weeks. Looking forward.

We loved this place! The setting overlooking the ocean was superb. The fresh air was heavenly. Our hosts, Eileen and Steve, were special. It was like staying at your favorite relatives home. Steve has great stories to share, which he did. We opted to have the dinner they offered. Mmmmm, wonderful home cooked food. A true Irish experience.

For us talking to steve totally made this b&b for us. We could've talked to him for hours, as his stories were so interesting and he was so nice, as was his family! Be careful if you are there and want to go out for dinner, as we drove around 40 min and to 3 different towns to find a single place to eat. Beautiful area though!

Enjoyed our stay in Belderig on The Wild Atlantic Way. Spent 2 nights. Eileen and Steve are great hosts. Truly an out of the way country experience. Cute harbor and “swimming pool”. Lots of cliffs and nearby hikes. A unique ancient farm site just around the corner (free) )is quite interesting. Signage is in Irish, maybe Eileen has a translation. Beds are on the hard side though. Everything else “Perfect”.

This place is in the middle of nowhere. No towns, no restaurants, no facilities of any kind that we saw. We were in the area to see Downpatrick Head (so worth the drive, highly recommend!!!). However, I did not enjoy my stay at the Yellow Rose. Don't get me wrong, Eileen and Steve are great people, and great hosts. The beds however, were like sleeping on ply wood. I kid you not. The bedding was lacking also. If you book with them, they will e-mail you telling you that they will prepare a meal for you the evening before and offer you options. This meal was a good one of cube steak, fried potatoes (chips) and a veggie. Be prepared in the morning to receive a 20 Euro per person bill for this meal. Steve did educate us on how the radiator system worked in Ireland, which we found very interesting.
