Walking distance to town center. Lovely home-like atmosphere with two gracious hosts, Joan and Frank. Breakfast was outstanding and rooms most comfortable.

Petra House B&B had been strongly recommended by my cousin and we too were made to feel very welcome. Our room was comfortable, Frank's breakfasts were delicious, and all within few blocks of downtown. Our hosts went beyond our expectations and helped arrange tour and transportation for Cliffs of Mohr and the Burren. We had a wonderful visit and look...

We were in Ireland for 9 days and this B&B was my favorite. We had to leave early to catch a ferry and Joan woke up early to make us a full breakfast. Not neccesary but certainly appreciated! Great place to stay!

You should definitely stay here if you get the chance! The hosts (Frank and Joan) are the warmest, most hospitable people. The property is so lovely, spotlessly clean and the breakfast was the best we had in Ireland (stayed at 9 B&Bs). Our room was a good size, very comfortable beds, and had extra little nice touches. I wish we...
