We booked for 3 nights with Noreen and JP and loved every minute, from breakfasts the kept us going all day, to a sumptuous bedroom and bathroom, sitting in front of the fire with whiskey and wine chatting about the day with our hosts, to JP making us coffee and so much more. All the advice about where to visit...

This is really one of the loveliest and unique places we have ever stayed, usually we would book 4 or 5 star hotels but nothing suitable in this area. The Vandees is a gem, everything was better than any hotel we have ever stayed in. Noreen & Jean Paul were fantastic hosts, from the second we arrived to the second...

We need to go back as a holiday. As it was we stayed after attending a family funeral. We were tired and jaded but Noreen and JP's...

Noreen and Jean-Paul understand what matters - in Life and how to run a successful B&B! Warm welcome, good local advice, beautiful decor, comfortable bed, quality linen, peaceful location and a feast for breakfast! Their attention to detail is impressive but their enthusiasm and kindness are priceless!

We stayed here for only 1 night, I wish it was longer. Noreen & Jean Paul are fantastic hosts, both have what we call in Ireland "the gift of the gab" you could spend hours chatting with them. The b&b is absolutely stunning so querkey & has as much character as it's owners. Noreen made a totally amazing breakfast, a...
