Very friendly family run accommodation beside a pub. Room was big with microwave, small cooker, small fridge and crockery/cutlery. It came with teas/coffees. I had a double bed, my own en suite and small sitting area. All very basic with basic decor, but clean and excellent value for what I paid. Had breakfast twice there and enjoyed that too. Choose...

There's nothing bad about Keane's and in fact it is charming in a kind of weird way. However, reading the incredibly effusive and gushing reviews I am utterly at a loss as to why we did not receive the 'outstanding 5 star food' nor the 'amazing' welcome from the family (although Imelda, non-family, was particularly delightful). Bar being asked what... More

Stayed two nights here and were made very welcome and got to meet most of the owners family and grand kids. Every effort was made to make us cosy in our room which was more of an apartment than a bare room. Breakfast was lovely and hot and there was plenty of it. Would go there again.

We had a bedroom in the self catering part & with that came a sitting room with a small cooking area, fridge, kettle & toaster. We got helpful info of what to do in the area. We had a... More

Stayed here for 5 days with my husband and 3year old daughter. We had a ball. Loop head is a wonderful place to holiday with plenty to see and do with small children. The accommodation was a little dated decor wise but this didn't bother us. It was spotlessly clean and well equipped. The family running it were lovely- couldn't... More

stayed at the Oyster bar for a week, absolutely brilliant, lovely couple running it, couldn't do enough to help us, and the steak cooked by Michael was the best I have ever had, nice clean studio room, plenty big enough for the two of us
