I was a bit doubtful at first as this is far from a trendy hotel. Basic but typical for the area, spotlessly clean and rooms well serviced, ie towels changed. Staff were friendly and helpful. Food was very good.we get used to staying in modern hotels and sometimes the basic ones take us back a little. However, this is a...

Beola Restaurant served the most delicious food. I can't stop raving about the scallops with bacon. The staff were exceptional, the wine tasty and overall brilliant value for money. I ate at other restaurants in Roundstone and nothing comes close to comparing how good Beola was. I would definitely recommend them and I look forward to going back.

Stayed for one night during a self-guided solo cycling trip from Kerry through to Cilfden. As this hotel was highly-rated and I was paying €130 for one night's stay, I expected more than what was received. Room was very small and bathroom light did not work (discovered this as I was going to bed and was too tired to bother...

Stayed here for 2 nights in April '15 and found hotel to be clean and comfortable but would describe it as a soulles hotel, which we considered was a real shame as it looks good from outside. Bar was small and lacking atmosphere with below average quality guinness! You would only want the one. Best part of the bedroom was...

Been there for a quick lunch following our visit (and upon recommendation) of the bodhran store. Definitely a great planer to visit and enjoy a quick bite. Very friendly staff and good quality of dishes served.

This B&B was very welcoming, but it requires going up rather steep stairs to the rooms. Kind of pricey, but Roundstone is a very popular tourist spot, so you pay for the location. The hotel is right in the center of the small town of Roundstone, which is a beautiful spot. The rooms are small but quite comfortable.

Eldons is in a fantastic location right next to the bay. When we visited the town was getting ready for a sailing regatta. We had lovely views of the harbor and boats from the upstairs hotel room. The bar is warm with friendly staff who did not mind sharing local knowledge. After a long day of sight seeing you can...

Ate here over the holidays in July 2015. Grub great - some of the family had the lamb which seemed to be a particular favourite. Other choices on the menu were also tried and none could be faulted. The staff were very accommodating and friendly. Spent time in the bar afterwards and had a great chat with the bar man...

The Eldon House Hotel gave us a very warm welcome. The rooms were comfortable, very clean and well serviced. We booked a table for dinner in their restaurant. We were pleasantly surprised. We had the mussels to start with the they were so fresh they almost tasted sweet. The rest of our meal was just as impressive. After dinner we...

We didn't stay in the hotel but ate in the restaurant twice and the food is excellent, especially the seafood. The staff are lovely and were undaunted by the arrival of a party of 12 late in the evening.
