We have just returned from a fabulous stay in the beautiful Cairbre House.This Georgian home is ideal for family groups.The bedrooms boast really comfy beds and ensuites with decent showers.The children in our party loved that every bedroom had a television.The adults loved the antique furnishings and stunning views of the estuary.The house has a well appointed kitchen with a cozy aga.It has two large fridges,dishwasher and double electric oven.It also has a large utility room with washing machine and dryer. The dining room was opulent and an atmospheric spot to enjoy takeaway from the gorgeous restaurants in Dungarvan.Brian the owner was so helpful.He had copies of the menus from nearly every takeaway and restaurant in town.He was great to give advice on local attractions too.The gardens surrounding the house are beautifully maintained.The enclsed back garden was an ideal space for children to play safely in.The garden has two huge outdoor tables.Perfect for alfresco dining.The house is a short walk from the centre of Dungarvan.We will definitely be returning to this absolute gem of a house. Brian made us feel so welcome and was a kind and gracious host.I really can't reccommend this house enough.

We stayed at Cairbre House in September 2018 & we were not disappointed. Brian was such a wonderful host who was beyond your typical host more like a friend. We extended our stay to 2 nights instead of 1 the rooms were very spacious & the beds were comfortable. Brian & his staff were always accommodating & we both felt comfortable staying at Caribre House. The breakfasts were healthy & very delicious Brian added his special touch with garnishings from his vege garden. Loved the homemade soda breads & the honey!!! Highly recommend to stay at Cairbre House but you need to hurry Brian is closing the B&B & just having Holiday stay instead.

We had a top notch experience. Great full Irish breakfast. Walking distance to Dungarvan restaurants, with a local pub even closer. The price is quite reasonable. The house is nearly 200 years old, situated on the estuary.

Just home from a fantastic two night stay in Cairbre House. The house itself is in a beautiful location on the waterfront. The bedroom was clean and comfortable. The breakfast was delicious with fresh fruit, herbs from the garden and homemade jams. The house is located just a 10 minute stroll from the main restaurants and bars in Dungarvan. Would definitely recommend!
