We stayed here for two separate nights bookending our Irish trip. The welcome from Marilyn and family was very warm; we had a wonderful stay on both occasions - the breakfast was excellent too (sad that our ferry was too early to partake on our first stay but Marilyn provided some wonderful bacon rolls for us to take with us...

Excellent house, very welcoming owner and tasty breakfasts. In this Victorian-style house it seems that you've gone back in time, still there are modern facilities like WiFi and TV. Loved every minute we spent there.

Our family had a wonderful stay. The rooms were decorated in antique surroundings and beautiful white coverlets. We had to leave early to catch the ferry so we missed breakfast but instead Marilyn (owner) sent us off with a "huge" picnic basket. It's a short walk to downtown where we ate at the Custom House which was a great restaurant.... More

This was the best bed and breakfast experience I can remember. The four of us arrived late because of heavy traffic driving up from the south of England. The owners were so accommodating about our arrival time and kept reassuring us that however late our arrival became it would be fine. We got in after 11 and were greeted warmly... More
