We just returned from another trip to Ireland and stayed at The White Cottages again as part of our holiday. While we've done quite a bit in this area of the country, we come back to it and in particular the Town of Skerries based on The White Cottages. Jackie and Joe, the proprietors, continue to excel at providing wonderful...

A lovely B&B run by Joe & Jackie...we have been trying to get here for years and finally made it...highly recommended....The majority of the rooms face the sea, a wonderful setting..!! Andrea attached to the bedrooms you can use as if at home, to make coffee, tea or meals, excellent, and a very decent Irish Breakfast not to be missed....

Beautifully located right on the beach and in the very attractive town of Skerries. Good restaurants and pubs are close by. The rooms are so comfortable with lovely views. The hosts could not be more friendly. Breakfast is delicious with many good local ingredients.

I don't tend to write many reviews but feel I should as we have stayed here a few times when visiting family and it really feels like coming home. Joe and Jackie are excellent hosts and their breakfasts are presented in a way that just seems a little bit special and are all local produce and products, winning many awards....

This place is brilliant, amazing sea front location within walking distance to anywhere in Skerries. Emaculate rooms and views are amazing so much the same for the hosts, lovely people and the breakfast is excellent too. We really enjoyed our stay and wouldn't hesitate to book again. Thanks

We stayed at the White Cottages just before leaving Ireland. We wish we had more time to spend here. Wonderful hosts, marvellous breakfasts, gorgeous clever dog and to be able to sit and enjoy that view and the seals right outside our room! All in all, we loved Ireland, the friendly people and beautiful villages, not to mention the green!...

Stayed here when visiting family in Skerries. Lovely position and warm welcome from the owners. Room warm with a comfortable bed and excellent views of the harbour area. Easy walk into Skerries to cafes, bars and restaurants and for those who enjoy longer walks, a trip around the headland and along the beach is an excellent way to enjoy the...

I have passed The White Cottages on many occasions and have admired its location and external appearance. So I was really looking forwards to staying there on this visit to Skerries. And I was not disappointed! We received a warm welcome from Joe and shown to the Captains room. This has a seaside theme which is very in keeping with...
