My daughter and I spent our very first night in Ireland at Gearldine and Noel's beautiful home. Our stay was in late July but as we reflect back on our Ireland trip these are the images we remember best. Their home is at the end of long road and sits right on the water. It is the most peaceful and... More

Geraldine and Noel's home is beautiful and set in a tranquil location looking out to sea. They were very attentive hosts and nothing was too much trouble. Their breakfasts were great! Only a 10 minute drive to the local town and very well positioned for visits to a host of tourist spots such as the Ailwee Caves and the Cliffs... More

The upstairs room to the right was spacious and very nice. The room was clean and we had some pizza and Geraldine very graciously warmed it for us. Her Husband Noel "Cinderella" had a very nice breakfast for us in the morning and walking to the pier/dock was great to take pictures off. I will come back if in the... More

We booked a room, at the very last moment, at Geraldine and Noel's cottage for a night. They were very friendly and welcoming. We had nice chats with them and they had good tips. The place is located at the end of a road and the place is beautiful !

We were so lucky that Galway was totally booked out, so we had to look for accommodation in Kinvara. What a find! Breacan Cottage is a charming, small bed-and-breakfast, located on a waterfront - very quiet and peaceful. The rooms are gorgeously decorated, and Geraldine and Noel are wonderful hosts. Breakfast was, of course, delicious. Highly recommended, wished we could... More

The hosts are so friendly and nothing was too much trouble! The room is great with gorgeous views....we even enjoyed not having a tv in a room for a change! Their restaurant recommendation was great! We just... More

This beautiful b&b is owned by a very nice couple. If you open the window of your lovely room, you can almost touch the sea. Tasty breakfast and a laugh in the morning is for sure. I love that place. Will be back, again and again!

A cozy peaceful B&B that feels remote because it is at the very tip of a peninsula but is also close to Kinvara town center so it's easy to grab dinner in town. Geraldine and Noel are fun and funny hosts who we really enjoyed talking with. The room we stayed in on the second floor was cozy and clean... More

We loved this B & B, right on Kinvara Bay. The only traffic was a herd of cows being moved from one field to another. It was easy to get to the Cliffs of Moher from here, and an easy drive to Galway. Geraldine (and her imaginary chef, Jean-Claude) and Noel were great hosts; my husband had long talks with... More

A very quirky B & B that is certainly worth a visit. It is situated in a beautifully remote location with lots interesting countryside and coast to visit. Geraldine & Noel were great hosts and lots of fun.

“We stayed downstairs, with a view of the water. Much easier with suitcases packed for five weeks, but the upstairs rooms are comfy as well.”
