Waters Edge BnB in Kilkee -- beautiful home with six guest rooms, filled with beautiful antiques. Breakfast was excellent. Hostess, Chippy, couldn't have been more helpful. View out the bedroom window was exceptional. Rate overall stay exceptional.
Slea Head Farm BnB -- Incredible views from bedroom windows. Caitlin was warm and welcoming, always available to help plan the day. Excellent breakfast cooked to our preference. Included us in an Irish musical event and dinner with other guests and family, remarkable hospitality. Room smallish but cozy and well-equipped. Great bed. Located at tip of Dingle Peninsula with easy access to Dingle, Wild Atlantic Way with stunning scenery, and small rural villages. Overall excellent.
Sea Breeze Lodge in Salthill. In every way this is a superior BnB. Every single detail, from our arrival and continuing through our departure, was looked after in ways beyond the norm. For example, we were offered complimentary wine on our arrival and provided fresh fruit, cheese, and crackers, and other amenities in our room daily. The breakfast offered an unusually wide array of delicious choices (i.e., fresh fruit and juice, meat and cheeses, breakfast breads) that were beautifully presented and fresh. In addition, a menu provided special home-made breakfast options in addition to the traditional Irish breakfast. Service at breakfast was exceptionally attentive and warm. The owner, Fred, is an extraordinary host, welcoming us, helping us with our luggage, explaining the amenities in the room, helping us with sight-seeing arrangements, and making us feel fully welcome. The location of the BnB facilitated walking on the Promenade and/or an easy drive into Galway as well as travel to the surrounding area. The physical design of the BnB is state of the art. The view from our windows and balcony was of a nearby bay and bird sanctuary, and guests are provided binoculars for easy viewing enjoyment. The bed was extremely comfortable. All in all, there are only positive comments that we can make about this exceptional experience. We feel very fortunate to have been guests in this beautiful and responsive BnB.
Mulranny Park Hotel, Mulranny on the Wild Atlantic Way. Full service hotel, most outstanding feature was exceptional quality of service at front desk and in restaurant. Initially when we checked in were in standard room, however upon our request we were upgraded without cost to an available deluxe room, which was superior. Food in dining room and the hotel pub as well as local entertainment in the pub was excellent. Very easy access to Achill Island.
Dromoland Castle. Beautiful facility filled with priceless antiques and art. Room very comfortable, fireside meal charming and delicious. Service overall excellent.
