Room was exceptional! Very clean, comfortable, ample room & bathroom modern. David & Doreen were wonderful, very accommodating. It was like staying in our own home only nicer and being pampered. Everything you could want in a B&B.

Honestly such an amazing place. Everything was beautifully done right to the last detail in the rooms. The rooms are so clean, well maintained and modern. Breakfast is so great and well worth having there. It's in the beautiful room looking outside and so much light! Food was excellent. The owner really loves what he does and you see that...

My wife and I only stayed 1 night because I was on a business trip, but if we ever come down this way again, we would have no hesitation in arranging a stay once again. It really was like a home from home.Super bedroom and a lovely breakfast sun room.David made us feel very welcome.

If your staying anywhere else in Ballybunion your missing out. The owners could not be any more friendlier or helpful. Our room was very clean and high standard facilities/amenities. The bed & sheets were amazing. Breakfast was top notch too. Been to Ireland several times now as my wife is from Cork...and this is an absolute gem. So well priced....

Location is great,could definitely...

We arrived without reservations during a family vacation...my two cousins, their 98 year young father and me. David Walsh welcomed us with open arms, had rooms available for us and made us very comfortable. The B&B itself is splendid, light and comfortable - a special place. The following morning we enjoyed a delicious breakfast, friendly conversation about golf, Ballybunion and...
