I'm confused at some of the previous reviews! Were they staying in the same place???? We found this charming little guest house far exceeded our expectations. Rooms were clean, functional and nicely decorated and not noisy. The bed was huge and comfy. The breakfast choice was extensive. (and tasted delicious!) The gentleman who served us, and greeted us upon arrival,...

We arrived at 5pm to a locked door and no instructions for entering the building. However, after finding the phone number on the reservation that I had fortunately printed out, we did find a number to call and were given instructions on how to access the room. We went in without our suitcases to use the bathroom first before lugging...

You can do a LOT better than this in Westport (a wonderful little town) The owner literally threw the keys at us, never showed us the room, and grunted the room number! He was in a FOWL mood ! He was so rude it made things so awkward the whole time. He just wanted his money and that was it....

I stayed here with my son and partner and a family friend. The owners are lovely, friendly people who cannot do enough for you. Rooms are finished to a high standard and breakfast was superb with a good selection of continental and cooked breakfasts including home made scones! The B&B is located in the centre of town within walking distance...

Great stay! Although rooms were a little tight, rooms were finished to a high standard, extremely clean. Exactly what we wanted them for, a Base! Great location, albeit a bit loud because of the night life, but it was a busy weekend for Westport and I've not stayed anywhere quiet in all the times I've visited Ireland. Breakfast was lovely...

I booked the above guesthouse by phone call shortly before my trip I was rather disappointed to discover that there was no car parking available despite the fact that this was included in the description. On arrival, I would have expected to have been shown to our room and our approval sought as is customary, however, we were handed a...
