This is a hidden gem in some of the most glorious scenery - a wonderful starting point for exploring the surrounding area. We have stayed with Trevor and Lynette on several occasions and the standards, service and hospitality are second to none. We shall certainly come again and would gladly recommend this guesthouse to others

Trevor and Lynette really do show every attention to detail possible - but it is done in such a relaxed and friendly way it seems effortless (which I'm sure it can't be!!) From arrival to departure I felt very pampered and the location is superb. Def recommend the hot tub option! We also enjoyed a fantastic display of shooting stars...

Spent five days with Trevor and his wife in their inn, they could not have done any better in trying to accommodate my every need. Very attentive and friendly. Mornings are met with a freshly made breakfast, either full Irish breakfast or your choice of eggs, the Irish breakfast gets heavy after a few days. The cleanliness was one of...

Spent 5 days in July (incl swimming lessons) at this amazing place. It says to follow the "rainbow signs" to get there & it really is a "pot of gold"! It is far more than just a B&B as Lynette & Trevor have turned this site in Ballyduff into a place where dreams really can come true.... It's picturesque in...

We spend two nights at Ard Na Ciuin guesthouse - the 14th and 15th of June. There were 5 of us - two adults and three children. Lynnette was extremely welcoming and could not have been more helpful. We were in the area to do some canoeing on the Blackwater. The guesthouse was well situated and really comfortable. It could...

Spent a very restful night here and hope to return. It felt like we were staying in a 5 star hotel! Lynnette very welcoming and made sure we had everything we needed.

My partner and I with our 8 month old son came to Ard na Ciuin because of a TV spot showing the Swimming Lessons provided here. I was blown away upon arrival because though the pictures of the property on the website are good, they do not do the house justice. It is stunning and is so far more than...

Warm and entertaining hosts, beautiful situation on the top of a hill, convenient to a surprising number of places no more than half an hour away, e.g. Youghal, Dungarvan, Lismore, Fermoy, Middleton, Clonmel, also right beside (well, nearly beside) the charming village of Ballyduff, whose inhabitants were super-helpful to us when we had bike problems.
