It was a great experience, margaret was very friendly, attentive and benevolent. She helped us et she advised us during the few days we were at her house. The weather was not so good for us but the view is really beautiful. Thanks for everything.

On a trip I'd have never thought I'd be able to take, Margaret took it to the next level of a dream come true. She was incredibly kind and welcoming. Our room was incredible, and the view was breathtaking. She was accommodating to our breakfast and thanks to her suggestions of places to visit, my love chose one of her suggestions as the best part of our trip. Can't be more grateful. I definitely wish that we could've stayed longer, spent more time with Margaret, and definitely will return if we ever make it back to Ireland. Will recommend to all friends and family!

The 300 year old house gives you a stunning view of the cove, island, and shoreline, and yes is very clean and manicured. Breakfast was great, especially the raspberry jam that Margaret sent us home with. MARGARET!! She is a wonderful and sweet lady and an instant friend. After attempting to visit all the places she openly suggested, we collapsed in her common room, sipped whiskey, and watched Ireland and Italy in the semi-finals, as we talked about EVERYTHING. We told her she set the bar for future B&Bs. The house and location provide a great stay, but it's Margaret that makes it magical.

Wow! Margaret was the BEST! This was our favorite B&B of our entire trip. I'm so glad we stayed here for 2 nights. She is kind and funny. She was just so friendly and helpful. I saw things that I would have missed had I not received such helpful tips. The view of the island with a lighthouse is so beautiful. Everything was perfect. STAY HERE!

Margaret has the most spectacular view every day. We certainly loved it the one day we were there. Her home was clean and beautiful. Breakfast was great and we enjoyed dinner in the town nearby with live music! Great time!
