My wife and I wanted to stay in Ballybunion last month, and I wanted to play on the famous golf course there. We had no reservations for either when we arrived in Ballybunion. We booked this B&B online and checked in late, and were greeted warmly by David Walsh. He and his wife Doreen run a top-notch luxurious B&B there....

The owner was welcoming and very friendly. He arranged a cab to get to dinner, recommended the seaweed bath and told some great stories. The room was spotless and the breakfast was great. Ask him about the Bill Clinton visit. Make sure you ask what the sign said.

I stayed at the Tides B&B this summer for one night. The owner was extremely friendly and helpful. The room was large, comfortable with all amenities available.

Stayed here for four nights at end of august--everything about the place is 1st class--from the welcome, the decor, the room, the food and the location. We often stay places and say "I must go back there"--this one we will definitely go back to. Our one regret was that we didn't stay for longer but we had booked another 5*...

The owner is friendly. The room was clean an the bathroom big. A good breakfast Service in a room with great view will let you stay longer there. The B&B is situated outside of town, so a car is helpful.

We were amazed by the large size of our room and impressed by the outstanding friendliness of the wonderful couple who own this B&B. David gave us a great recommendation for a restaurant near the Ballybunion golf course and shared his extensive knowledge of what to visit in the area. Can't say enough about how much we enjoyed our stay!

What a great place! It starts with a warm welcome from David who gives you the lay of the land and points out the attractions. The room was magnificent - comfy bed and a great shower. Cannot recommend this place highly enough.
