Very well run by Michael Brett and his team. Nothing is a problem. Beautiful location overlooking Yough al Bay. Top quality fresh local foods served in the dining room by very friendly local staffs. Nice clean small bedrooms. Value for money a bit expensive at €135 Bed and Breakfast. Super location for walks on the beach or in the town....

The food is good and the staff are very professional and helpful. I have observed the owner getting right in there to help out no matter...
