Positive Reviews

Full Irish breakfast made to order

Guests absolutely love the breakfast served by June, the owner. It is described as plentiful and delicious, and guests are grateful that they can start off their day with something more substantial than a pastry and cup of coffee. Also often mentioned are June's scones, which are described as heavenly and not to be missed.

Amazing owner made stay very enjoyable

The owner, June, is unfailingly described as the perfect proprietor. Whether for her efforts at breakfast, when she makes sure guests get exactly what they want, or for her friendliness and information on the surrounding area, guests consistently rate her very highly indeed.

Beautiful and peaceful garden

Several guests describe the B&B's garden as exceptionally lovely, with an abundance of flowers in season, and the owner as a keen gardener who is happy to discuss gardening matters with fellow enthusiasts.

Negative Reviews

Confusion regarding Wi-Fi

There have been exceptionally few complaints about this B&B. It has been mentioned that some guests have been charged for Wi-Fi when they were expecting it to be included. If important, it's best to clarify beforehand.

Smallish rooms

A very rare complaint is that some of the rooms are a little small. Most guests did not mention this, but perhaps if you have more that two in your party it would be best to check on the size of the room you are booking.

A little out of the way for sightseeing

This is more of a problem for those who really do not enjoy driving, but the location has been described as not being 100% ideal considering the attractions guests come to see in the area.
