Very welcoming hosts. Teresa and Ian are very informative and seem to have great local knowledge. Breakfast was superb, with great choices and cooked fresh to my order. They made my stay very warm and welcoming, and I would happily stay here with family or my partner also. Very accommodating.

We, five seniors, arrived at the Old schoolhouse soaking wet after out trip to Inisheer. No problem to Ian! He took our wet clothes, dried them and refused payment for his beyond-the-call of duty services! Rooms were comfortable, breakfast was great, hosts were warm and welcoming! It comes no better!

What a lovely welcome Ian & Teresa gave us upon arrival. It was home away from home. We had a great nights sleep, the bed was very comfortable. Room & ensuite very clean. We had a lovely breakfast also. Would have no hesitation in recommending this B&b. Thanks again guys, Anne & Pat.

Ian and Teresa are the perfect hosts. Very warm and welcoming and went out of their way to help me. Their B&B is a converted out Schoolhouse and its a fantastic place to stay. Ian served a super breakfast in the morning which set me up for another day's cycling. Highly recommended.

Had an amazing weekend here. Hospitality was to die for. Great breakfast. Even offered to look after our little dog when we went out for dinner! Great local knowledge and try the crab claws in the long dock.

Therese and Ian were extremely friendly and awesome hosts. Our room was clean, tidy and comfortable with an ensuite. Ian gave us many hints and tips on sightseeing and maps of the local area ,which were off the normal tourist routes, but well worth the visits. Breakfast was to die for. Therese packed us up scones with jam and butter...

We ended up in Cross on the Loop Head Peninsula quite late, after a long journey, and very tired. Teresa and Ian saved our day with a warm welcome and a meal. During our stay, they made our breakfasts real feasts being able to fulfill all our wishes and even please our children. They made our first days in Ireland...

Beautiful job done on this old schoolhouse building in the heart of Cross village within walking distance of Foleys pub where you get great pints, music and friendly people. Lovely view of the sea and rolling hills from the upstairs bedroom with steps up to the skylight to admire it. Very comfortable, private, well decorated bedroom and ensuite bathroom. Huge...
