During my recent visit to Castlebar in County Mayo, the wind and dampness may have been chilling, but the welcome I received during my stay at Windermere House B&B was warm and friendly. The B&B, run by The McGrath family is a stately yet modern red brick house that sits on N5 about halfway between Castlebar and Westport. On a...

Despite a very late booking for the same evening, Kay was very welcoming and bright on arrival. Good sized room and a bed that had me asleep as my head touched the pillow. Great breakfast too with everything available on the table - even a scone! (I was tempted but I'd eaten 2 in the room already). WiFi the only...

We stayed one night at the Windemere House in Castlebar. Although hard to find at first (we zipped right by it) it was worth the turn around. Kay was a perfectly charming hostess. She welcomed us with tea and coffee and homemade scones. A treat after a long day of driving. She had suggestions for us for restaurants. We took...

We stopped in for one night, received a very warm welcome, tea scones and biscuits - even though it was night and not afternoon! Hostess was very helpful with local information, breakfast was hearty and we even got scones to go!

She offered tea, scones and biscuits in the lounge. Key was very helpful during our stay in her B&B: she recommended places to visit, restaurants,found a DVD cartoon for Matteo,...

My friend Diana and I stayed in Windermere House in august 09. We were travelling to Castlebar at short notice to attend a memorial mass service. From the time we first enquired about accommodation at Windermere, Kay could not have been more helpful. When we did finally arrive, even though it was late at night, Kay was only too willing...

We had a lovely time with Kay at Winermere House! We were met with a friendly and warm welcome, with lots of ideas of how to enjoy our stay in Mayo! Every morning she had a wonderful breakfast prepared and the scones were fantastic! She always had a smile on her face and was genuinely interested in what we had...

We first got in touch with Mrs Mc Grath on the phone to tell her we'd be late (i.e. arrive after 6pm) & she was quite understanding & helpful to find our way there . As soon as we arrived, we had a nice friendly talk, not just the regular B&B routine I mean . She then gave us a...

We stayed with Kay McGrath at Windermere House for 2 nights in July 2009. The house is absolutely charming and the welcome very warm and friendly.
