Positive Reviews

A breakfast to remember

Made-to-order breakfasts are out of this world. With hosts, Nora and John, preparing everything from bacon and eggs, to perfectly fried Irish sausages, visitors struggle to decide what they will order for the following morning. Choices are endless, and according to guests, it's the most delicious full Irish breakfast imaginable.

Super owners

With such amazing hosts, it's no wonder visitors don't want to leave. The fabulous Irish humour, and friendly and helpful nature of the hosts makes staying here really easy. Advice on where to go and what to see is so helpful, that guests refer to it as golden advice.

Amazing setting

The charming decor and homely atmosphere adds to the already rustic, rural vibe. The close proximity to The Gap of Dunlop, and the beautiful walk to Kate Kearney's Cottage for dinner, is what guests love about this place. They say the serenity of the mountains in the background, and the horses in the field is not easy to replicate.

Negative Reviews

No credit card facilities

The bed and breakfast does not accept any card payments, only cash. Guests find that in todays times, it is preferable for them to have a choice, or at least to know beforehand that cash is the only option.
