Arriving cold after an impromptu swim in the sea, the offer of a pot of tea and home made scone was heaven! Many B&Bs; are described as ‘welcoming’ but Marion is truly so. She is a lovely woman who makes time to really connect with each guest. The room was comfortable, with homely touches, and the fruit and yoghurt for breakfast were superb – not to mention the homemade Irish brown bread,

The highlight of this stay was the kindness of the host. On our last day we had to drive back to Dublin at 4:30 in the morning, and guess who got up and served us breakfast? The area is beautiful and the facilities lives up to the description.

Lovely stay with our two children, very welcoming from start to finish. Marian is a lovely, pleasant lady, breakfast was lovely and cooked to our liking. We stayed one night to climb Croagh Patrick and Marian and her husband gave us some handy tips – she’s a pro at climbing Croagh Patrick!
