Clinton’s Woodview Farmhouse – Dublin

Mary was outstanding, given so many changes we made in advance. The rooms were excellent and beautifully decorated – especially a family room. Breakfast was amazing. She makes her own bread daily and every choice was a delight. Location was also excellent with easy access to surrounding towns and airport. Definitely coming back. Thank you from all the Shortall’s.

Valley View Farmhouse – Killarney, Kerry

This was definitely my favorite b&b of our entire trip. I wish we could stay with them every night in Ireland. We loved helping Conn milk the cows and show us his farming duties. The Austrian exchange student was also so sweet and helpful. We were greeted with freshly baked scones and tea, and Sheila was even kind enough to let us wash our muddy clothes. I can’t wait to come back.

Bernadette was great the accommodation was splendid as well as the scenery from the front of the house as we sipped tea overlooking the valley below. We walked to the nearby town for a pub dinner which Bernadette booked for us. Great time as we left with a delicious Irish breakfast for the road ahead.

Avondale Farmhouse – Pettigo, Donegal

Simply perfect! Very cosy place and Mary was extremely friendly. I can only recommend ths B&B! Great for everybody who wants to be quiet. If you are looking for a peaceful place, go there, if you are looking for a busy place, don’t go there. But I guess if you are looking for a busy place, you don’t go to Donegal anyway…

Glendine Country House, Arthurstown, Co Wexford

We really enjoyed our stop at Glendine House. Lots of character to the building and rooms. The highland cows and deer in the paddocks show this is a real working farmhouse. But most of all the welcome from Ann and her family made us feel relaxed in this wonderful location.

Doonagore Farmhouse, Cliffs of Moher, Clare

You won’t regret staying with Pat and Mary! Their home was welcoming and comfortable. We had a great view out our window to the sunset over the sea. Don’t miss out on the opportunity to do the hike with Pat to the Cliffs. This is WAY better than what the visitor center has to offer! While staying there, we also listened to some live “free-style” Irish music at O’Connor’s and it was wonderful. Our stay in Doolin and at their Farmhouse was our favorite part of our Ireland trip!

Clinton’s Woodview Farmhouse Skerries, Dublin

We had a wonderful time!! Mary was a wonderful host. The house was clean and cozy and ALWAYS smelled of home cooking. Mary’s breakfast was “off the charts” good. I took lots of pictures of our place settings as they were beautiful!! I think of her homemade plum jam every morning. I cannot find anything like it here in my local grocery store. The accommodations were perfect for us as we were gone all day everyday exploring beautiful Ireland. We can home to a comfy bed, wifi, and warm shower every night. I wish we had more time in Skerries as it was such a beautiful little harbor town. Mary is warm and thoughtful and made our stay very memorable. I will be back for sure and would recommend The Clinton Farm House over and over!

Glasha, Ballymacarbry, Waterford

Olive is the best! Her home is warm and inviting. The room and en suite were spacious and very comfortable. The best part about Glasha is Olive. She had afternoon tea with us and pointed us in the direction of both the Rock of Cashel and Cahir Castle. Both are beautiful and the town of Cahir was lovely! She serves a very nice breakfast. Olive also gave me directions when we left so we would hit some good spots on the way to Cork.

The Brown Hen B&B, Bandon in Co Cork

I’m so very happy that we had 2 nights with Gwynyth and her delightful family at The Brown Hen. The countryside views were beautiful from the guest accommodations. Our bed and bath were nicely decorated and appointed. We loved the breakfast in the solarium with a table set with delicate pink china. The food was so spectacular we had to go back to our room and nap! Fresh eggs from the farm and fresh squeezed orange juice were amazing. Be sure you check out Gwynyth’s incredible AGA in the kitchen. Nancy and Rod  Review 10/10

Corrib View, Galway City in Co Galway

We stayed here in May during our honeymoon – and I did not want to leave! Mary has such a sweet soul. She gave us recommendations on places to see, eat and shop. Thanks to her I purchased a Claddagh ring that I have not taken off since May 2017. Besides connecting with the host and enjoying her breakfasts; another aspect that I will never forget is how charming the location of the house was set in garden/farm area. I watched horses across the street each morning. Soothing and immersive.
