We had a wonderful stay here this past June. We stayed three night and the hosts were superb. They had great suggestions for dinners and were very flexible on timing for breakfasts. Accommodations were well appointed and up to date. We would definitely stay here again.

I wrote this review last summer, about a month after we returned from our trip, but just never got around to putting it on the B&B Ireland site until now. However, I have always intended to because we LOVED this B&B so much! We arrived, during the early evening hours, after an adventurous day driving from Dublin through Kilkenny, Cobh and Kinsale. Catherine and Finnbar were there to greet us and showed us our room. Since we were so close, to the beach, we wanted to see sunset there and wind down a little. They suggested Warren Beach which was only a 10-minute drive from the property. We did the cliff walk and watched an amazing sunset! By the time we made it back to the beach, a full moon was rising over the water. There was nobody else there and it was the perfect ending to a busy day. Driving back towards An Rosithlir, we could not find a place still open to eat so we just went back to the B&B. Catherine and Finn heard we had not had dinner and quickly whipped up a plate of cheese and crackers, cookies and a fresh pot of coffee. An hour of great conversation ended near midnight and off to bed we went. The next morning, I awoke early, around 5am, and Finn was already awake and preparing for breakfast. He brought me a small pot of coffee to enjoy as breakfast would not be served for another couple of hours. I walked the property, drank my coffee, watched the cattle graze across the street, watched a red fox play in a field and just enjoyed the early morning quiet while taking in the beautiful views! After a delicious breakfast, and more great conversation, unfortunately, it was time to continue our trip around Ireland. After packing the car, we had to get pictures with Catherine and Finnbar as they were the most gracious of hosts. My 23-year-old daughter calls them her "Irish grandparents"! Thank you for the amazing experience, Catherine and Finn, and for making An Roslithir feel like home away from home (Oklahoma, US).

Our stay at Catherine and Finnbar's B&B was outstanding. We were warmly greeted and felt welcome throughout our stay. The facilities were clean, neat and updated and the breakfast was second to none. We had nice conversations with both hosts and Catherine recommended a wonderful stop for us to make as we left the B&B that turned out to be worthwhile. They gave us suggestions also for places to eat and drink during our stay and helped us with the transportation.

Our recent stay at An Rosalithir was fantastic. When we arrived, we were welcomed with warm Irish hospitality. The rooms were clean and renovated. Wonderful Breakfast prepared to your liking. The hosts Catherine and Finnbar were so friendly and knowledgeable about the local area. They not only provided recommendations for nearby pubs but offered to drive us & pick us up with no time restraint . We highly recommend this B&B to anyone looking to experience the hospitality of Ireland. One of our favorites! And we stayed at 10!
