It's difficult to decide which " special treatment " was the most " special ". Was it the perfectly cooked breakfast; was it the guinness bread with the manuka honey; was it the thoughtful directions given to a hard-to-find destination; was it the very comfy bed; or was it the time when Pauline searched all over the house to find...

We stayed 2 nights at Paulina's B&B at the end of our long driving trip around Ireland. It couldn't have been a better experience! Paulina had to be one of the most helpful, professional, and considerate B&B owners we encountered. Just the little things - and it started months ahead of time when we booked. She graciously sent us a... More

I loved this B&B ! We had room 2 which had its own bathroom. It was up one short flight of stairs and it was a really private, spacious room which made you feel relaxed straight away.

To rate this hotel as excellent is an understatement. From the time of first booking Pauline went over and above all our expectations as a host.

Stayed for 2 nights. Pauline Mendez was a knowledgeable and helpful hostess who made it a pleasure to be in her house. The accommodation was very clean and comfortable and the cooked breakfast everything that you would expect in an Ulster Fry. Will certainly be returning.
