After arriving at a late hour and in not too good a mood after a strenuous day, we were instantly cheered up by the wonderful, warm welcome from our hosts. This is a little gem of a B and B, in a most convenient place with plenty of parking outside and nearby. My introduction to porridge with a Bailey's topping may well be the start of a most enjoyable habit! The bedrooms are small, as are the bathrooms, but, as we were only staying for one night as part of a cycling tour, this wasn't really a problem.

Mike and Judy were wonderful host and I really enjoyed chatting with them and they were so helpful! I definitely recommend this B&B and would like to came back some day again. The trip to the Skellig Michael was beautiful experience and I can tell this is the gem of Ireland!!

Not really a dislike, but the shower area is rather small - but this is a feature of the premises.
The most friendly, hospitable home we have ever been in - and it is a home, Judy is an absolute marvellous woman. She and Mike offer a holiday home of the highest quality in a small village.

TINY twin room. Cigarette smell on entering. We were disappointed in the overall presentation compared to other B&Bs we've used while visiting Ireland.
Great position. Breakfast was fine. Hosts were pleasant.

Mike and Judy were just lovely, they make you feel that you are visiting their home. The breakfast was delicious and we were glad to have a return visit, we were there 3 years ago.
