Good Hotel Guide Review
Jolly flower baskets flank the bright red front door of this personable B&B on a quiet street in the centre of a historic port and fishing town. ‘We arrived to a warm welcome. Noreen and Philip McEvoy, the owners, are a likeable couple who enjoy chatting with their guests,’ said Guide readers this year. Once the residence of the parish priests, the nearly 270-year-old house is ‘charming, quirky and filled with family memorabilia’. Each of the traditionally decorated bedrooms (up a ‘steep, narrow’ staircase in the main house) is different: one has a roof garden with views over the town; a ‘generously sized’ penthouse suite is ideal for a family. For those in need of a mid-afternoon pick-me-up, cheese, wine, coffee and tea are served between 4.30 pm and 6 pm – ‘a novel and much appreciated touch’. In the morning, help yourself to fresh fruit and home-made granola, part of an ‘excellent’ breakfast of organic and Fairtrade produce; Philip McEvoy, a professional chef, cooks a seafood special of the day. ‘It may not be cheap by B&B standards, but you get good value for money.’ (Esler Crawford)
