Thank you for your review titled "Nice place to stay". I am sorry you were disappointed that you did not receive tea and hot scones on arrival. However, I am not aware of it being common practise in Bed and Breakfasts. I am surprised at the premises being cold in the month of August as our heating is thermostatically controlled...

Stayed in Claí Bán at the beginning of this month as part of a package with Aer Arann; the airport mini bus took us to the door. On arrival we received a warm, friendly welcome from Bartley. The B&B is extremely well kept, clean, all rooms en-suite and the dining room has a particularly unique style. The traditional full Irish...

Can't say enough good things about Bartley. My buddy and I got in on the night ferry. It was dark and raining and we were on foot. My buddy called Bartley for direction and instead of us having to walk in the rain, he asked where we were and to stay put because he would be coming to pick us...

The island itself was beautiful. The B&B was okay. The host was very friendly and welcoming. The room, however, was slightly lacking. It was outdated but that was fine as I came for the sites and not to stay in my room. The issue was more the amount of dust and cobwebs in the room. Bed was okay and breakfast...

“The "family" room (room 1) is excellent and fits four comfortably but is at ground level and faces the entry way/driveway so you will need to close your curtains and hide your view if you value privacy.”
