Good Hotel Guide Review
Once the residence of the parish priests, Philip and Noreen McEvoy’s rambling, 200-year-old B&B stands on a quiet street in the centre of this historic port and fishing town. Filled with memorabilia and antiques, the house retains a characterful air while incorporating the latest technology, including solar-powered heating. Each of the traditionally decorated bedrooms is different: two rooms have a balcony, another has a sunroom and a roof garden with views over the town. Obliging hosts, the McEvoys provide complimentary hot drinks and snacks, and cheese and wine in the afternoon. In the morning, wake to a substantial organic breakfast cooked by the host, a professional chef. Interesting options (perhaps a crab Benedict or hot, fruit-filled crepe) include good vegetarian and vegan options. Sea and river fishing, water sports and golf can be arranged. Sitting room, dining room; patio. Free Wi-Fi, in-room TV (Freeview). Classical/Irish background music. Parking. Children welcomed. Unsuitable for disabled. 9 bedrooms (3 suites in annexe; 2 self-catering; family rooms). Per room B&B €115–€250. Closed Nov–Feb.
