Highly recommended bed&breakfast situated right beside the two fantastic golf courses in Ballybunion. James & Mary run a 5 star Bed & Breakfast, have a warm welcome for visitors and anybody that chooses to stay there for their trip will not be disappointed!

My wife and I have experienced James and Mary Beasley's hospitality for over 10 years. The mere fact that we return speaks volumes on the quality, comfort and family treatment we experience each time. Never have we had less than a 5 star stay on every visit. James and Mary are meticulous in ensuring each stay is a special occasion....

A great location. Despite being upgraded to one of the premier suites ( Ian Woosnam ) we were rather disappointed. The general ambience is "tired and outdated ". We thought that heavy blankets were from a bygone era. Bathroom was tatty with loose toilet handle and peeling silicone sealant around the basin. Towels and pillows were tired and worn out...

Regarding your issue with the blankets we would have happily changed the blankets for a duvet for you if only you had informed us at your time of stay.

Absolutely the best place to stay in Ballybunion! You can actually see the golf course our the window. No more than a 400 yard walk to the first tee. The rooms here were very spacious and clean.

The 19th Lodge was amazing. I played both the Old Course and the Cashen Course and this was right across the street - you could walk to the golf course! It also was a short walk or drive into town which was nice if you wanted to go out for dinner or to the local pubs. The service at the...
