Virginia and her daughter Samantha were as hospitable, friendly and welcoming as can be. The Olde Castle House has fabulous views of the ocean and is next door to the remains of a castle and it doesn't get any cooler than that! The room was simple, but comfortable and clean as was the bathroom. The living room was cozy and... More

Virginia welcomed us with a cup of tea and biscuits. The house was very welcoming. The surroundings are stunning and the view from the house (bedroom and dining room) is breathtaking. The whole house is warm and clean and full of light. Breakfast was very nicely served. We enjoyed the full Irish breakfast as well as the very large fruit... More

Travelling with friends, we had a nice experience in this old but spotless country farm b&b. Great position on the ocean, cozy atmosphere and comfortable room. Hosts were very helpful and kind. Delicious Irish breakfast with good choice of side food. I would certainly book again during future trip to Ireland

Great place to stay! The house is simple and charming with a view you can't beat. Breakfast is as good as it gets and the rooms are fine. Went their last year with my parents and just went back with a couple of friends. This place is utterly authentic!

Gorgeous sea views from the B&B and our room, and the castle in the B&B grounds made it quite a unique setting. A lovely warm welcome with tea and biscuits.The room was ok, a little old fashioned for our taste and a bit cold but thankfully they put the heating on for us. Bit sad but we missed having the...

Beautiful views, excellent breakfast, clean beds, Very very bad shower facilities, no TV, but good value for money. €65. The room was cold as heating was off. We had to ask to put it on. The lady of the house was very welcoming.

We were made very welcome by the owner Virginia and her daughter Samantha in this spectacularly situated B&B. Our bedroom looked over beautiful blue and turquoise seas, islands and mountains. It was so quiet and with no street lights we actually slept with the curtains open - lights twinkling in the distance over the sea from farmhouses on Clare island.... More

This is one of the places we will remember for long time for making our trip to Ireland so good. All Irish are nice and welcoming, but some of them are even more. Here we found this kind of people. We were welcomed and given a room facing the ocean in the attic. It was very cozy but spacious enough,... More

B&B sits right next to an old tower castle ruins. Home is cozy, modern and very clean. Very private and quiet. Sits right on the water with fabulous views. Nice picnic tables in front to enjoy the sea air. Walks along the coast very pleasant. Fairly near town for dinner but not within walking distance. Very nice breakfast.
