What a fantastic house with very attentive owners. David and Diane looked after our every need. The food is fantastic, Diane is a great cook and we couldn't have asked for more. As I am writing this my wife is teaching their grandchildren to play cards.

Although I visit Ireland at least once every year, this was the first time I stayed in Cong, very conveniently situated to Connemara, the Burren and indeed the beautiful lakelands of Mayo. I travelled with my 15 years old daughter who enjoyed the horse riding in Ashford, just a few miles down the road, the peace and tranquility of the...

Our hosts were a very experienced english couple who settled in Ireland some years ago. Ballywarren has a great location for the west of Ireland. The food was amazing and would have fed an army and sweets and sherry in the room didn't help the waistline either. Immaculately clean, very well organised and well appointed room (4 poster) and bathroom....

We chose this B&B for its convenient setting to explore the Connemara and the home cooked meals which Diane is famous for. Unfortunately, we caught her at a bad moment ( Diane suffers from arthritis) so it was a big disappointment for us we had to miss out all that delicious food. Luckily she was able to cook the full...

This review is misleading as the reviewers never at any point booked dinner with us, only accommodation. Also they said that Diane suffers from arthritis which is totally untrue, she does not. This review is personal and inaccurate.

We stayed at Ballywarren for the final two nights of our Ireland vacation. The location of the B&B was very convenient for touring in Connermara. Within a hour or two you can reach sites like Ashford Castle, Kylemore Abbey, and the Cliffs of Moher to name a few. The owners, Diane and David, were wonderful hosts and provided excellent and...

First, the B&B is very nice and the owners are charming; very friendly and courteous. The problem comes in room selection. There are two very nice rooms with ample space and comfortable beds. If you happen to get stuck with the third bedroom, the one that faces the rear of the house, it is not so nice. The water pipes...

This person caused many problems by email for weeks before arriving. Most of the problems were related to food requirements, he only ate pizzas. There were no banging pipes, we sleep in the next room and the view from the back rooms is even lovelier than the front ones, it is all stone walls and country side on every aspect.
