Our problem was that we do generally not stay in guesthouse, we prefer traditional hotel. So our first impression was a big disappointment!!!! Our problem. BUT even with this we liked the house as well as the room. It is a little bit "old fashion ", especially the bathroom, but very friendly receptionists made our staying really good one. Consider...

This was our third B&B during our vacation. The first 2 were wonderful. This one was a disappointment.It was not a true B&B. It is more like a Hostel. The rooms and bathrooms are clean but the breakfast is extra, the carpet is really warn and dirty to the point where my husband would not walk on it without shoes....

We picked it from reviews and were quite satisfied. You could walk to the beach in about 20 minutes. If using GPS, the road parallels the main road. Roundabout exit was for a small cul-de-sac. Room was spacious and quiet. Breakfast was very good. Bus into town was close by. Staff was friendly and helpful. I would stay again.

Stayed one night, in the apartment with family. It was basic. The shower could do to be replaced & it would be nice to have a mirror near a socket, for when you style your hair. Nice bright breakfast room. Very good choice at breakfast. Staff friendly. Good value for money.

I stayed in the two bedroom apartment with my friend for a few days. We chose the apartment because I have very specific dietry requirements and so have to prepare my own food. The apartment was very clean and nicely decorated. It was small, but was plenty of room for what we needed. There were two single beds in each...

Very modern and spacious B&B, only stayed for one night but would have been comfortable for much longer. A short drive away from the city centre and free parking outside was very handy. Rooms were great size with everything you could need, ensuite bathrooms, tea making facilities etc. Bedrooms, bathrooms and shared spaces were all very clean and tidy. Everyone...

The guest house is located not directly in the center. It's a 20min walk to get into the city center. The rooms a very nice, clean and quiet. The optional irish breakfast costs 8€ extra but is worth. There is also free parking included
