We had a very pleasant stay here, specially with Steve who is very funny. He cooked a tasty chicken vegge meal for us for an additional charge. I figured there weren't too many places to eat around when I read that he could cook a meal. We stayed one night as we were on our way north to Down Patrick and south to Doolin. The room was a bit cramped, but it was fine for us. Nice and beautiful location.

Stephen and Eileen were very welcoming hosts, and the BnB is in a quiet location but still close to Down Patrick which is worth the trip. Great location, good food, and Stephen is a great story teller. Very interesting.

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!
