We had to laugh when we asked Jackie where we could eat and she pointed out the two pubs next door. We had already noted a trend during our travels around Ireland. As you enter the towns you first see the church, then the pubs. The B & B was very clean, seemed quite new and the meal was wonderful. Jackie was extremely helpful with our planning our day. Next door at the Crossbar Pub we had a great meal and conversation with a gentleman from town. All in all we had a fantastic experience at Church View and Gorteen!
Very well kept B&B, large and very tidy room(s), lovely breakfast, very nice host (Jackie). Though Gurteen is "off the beaten track" there are several nice pubs near the B&B. Nice meals available next door in the Crossbar Pub & Restaurant. Absolutely brilliant as well: The Coleman Traditional Irish Music Centre with great music events and concerts!
THe B&B is very new and clean. All rooms look pretty nice and are well decorated in a modern style. Breakfast will be fresh prepared by the owner and the breakfast room is very nice and modern. The short distance to Sligo (approx. 30 min.) gives access to a high variety of different restaurants.
Stayed here during the Coleman Traditional Music Festival ... clean, comfortable and welcoming. Lovely residents sitting room with ample reading matter and TV. Contemporary decor of a high standard ... friendly, smiling owner and delicious breakfast with a good selection ... well cooked and presented. So much thought and substantial investment has gone in to the design of this B&B ... it deserves to be successful. We would return to this superior accommodation. Thank you for a lovely stay in the Sligo countryside!
Every thing you could ask for in an Irish B & B. Immaculate rooms, wonderful Irish breakfast, attention to all details by host Jacci Conlon. We were booked in for six days to enjoy the hospitality of the west of Ireland and our special Irish relative. An absolutely perfect stay...plus there are three pubs within walking distance and the Michael Coleman Music Center. We will return.
