Stayed with a group of 12. The chalets were spotless, very comfortable and the food, all local, prepared by Mike and Kathy was a rare treat, utterly delicious and would rival any gourmet restaurant. We were made so welcome, this is a real home from home. The setting is divine, a silvery sandy beach at the bottom of the field, and lovely walks, if you can tear yourself away from the view.. This is a slice of heaven. If I ever move, it'll be to here!

I had no idea what to expect, so when our group arrived, I was gobsmacked! A breathtaking view, clean and comfortable accommodations, and the owners made us all feel like family members who had come home for a visit. The atmosphere was warm and welcoming....and the food was AMAZING! Home cooking at its best. Delicious comfort food, and plenty of it! Vegetarian, vegan, gluten free and dairy free meals upon request. Kathy, Mike and Daniel catered to everyone’s needs. Wholesome breakfasts, lunches and dinners, left us all satisfied and ready to take our classes in the large room overlooking the sea. How inspiring! The accommodation, cafe and conference room are all grouped together, and there’s a lovely lawn area with benches and tables to sit and enjoy the sun and the vista. I personally cannot wait to go back and do it all again. It’s difficult to express how perfect the weekend was, and I left feeling that Kathy and Mike were now friends of mine.

Stayed at the North Shore recently while I was doing a two day kayaking one to one skills training with Pat Rogers of H20 Sea Kayaking Sherkin Island. I'd highly recommend staying at this place as the kayaking also operates from here making it very convenient. I travelled solo and felt a very warm welcome from the moment I arrived. Nothing was too much bother and the room was clean, comfortable with a good shower. If I wasn't kayaking then it would still be a good place to just escape from everything and stop the clock, walk, discover lovely beaches and watch the sea. Cathy's Dutch baby pancakes with yogurt and fruit were a first for me and I'd travel all the way back down again just for those! 😋

This place was great for us as a bunch of friends in their 20s looking to explore the island and camp cheap (we brought our own tent) and near a private beach. A kitchen/ living space for guests was unreal - meant we could just sleep In our tents and eat meals and play cards in the living space. Advice to campers: Hospitality wise the place was basic. I wouldn’t tell my parents to go there - you really have to fend for yourself. The kitchen is great so bring your own food and plan to make your own breakfast . Think scruffy hostel camping not b&b. Best advice: Breakfast at the campsite costs the same as one persons fee to camp! It was 30 mins late and so reluctant . Staff seemed annoyed that we were eating there even though we’d booked it and also seated other guests at the end of our table. Then they asked could we pass our bowls of fruit and yogurt to these other guests. That’s weird for a free breakfast but for €12.50 and during covid it was bizarre. And worst we had our own food in the Living space kitchen! Could’ve had the same breakfast (pancakes, a reheated sausage, communal fruit salad, and yogurt) for free. Oops. So stay there for the views and the location and the basics but come with everything youlll need don’t ask for anything while you’re there and don’t expect to be treated like a guest! Also be prepared for some rude/eccentric/narky interactions from staff. Then you’ll be able to enjoy the beautiful location and basic amenities.

My boyfriend tried to put a single empty crisp packet in the bin and was told by the bad mannered male owner to take it with him as it costs the business money to empty bins. We had just parted with €75 to stay there for one night and he didn't even have the courtesy to let us put ONE CRISP PACKET IN A BIN! It would be laughable if it wasn't so rude. Daniel was great and so accommodating. Thank you, Daniel!

Stayed here for a long weekend and it was just fab. The location is idylic. Agree with other comments that 'it's not the Ritz' - the rooms are small and fairly basic (we had a family room with 4 of us, on a single-over-double bunk, and a separate single bed. The beds aren't exactly luxury and nothing is sleek or shiny or polished... but bear in mind it's a tiny island on the edge of the Atlantic, and everything comes and goes on a small ferry boat. We had b&b booked, (self catering is also an option) and also had dinner each night we stayed (booked separately). There isn't a menu - it's whatever is being cooked on the night, and everyone eats together. The food was really excellent all-round - breakfasts and dinners - with plenty of love in it - and plenty of it (there was plenty of second helpings, which don't go astray after a day of island exploring). The whole stay felt like we were guests of 'real people', not a polished business enterprise. All in all, it was a blissful weekend of relaxing and unwinding, with good food and good company. It's not the kind of place that will suit everyone. If you're concerned about 4 or 5 star service, then it's not for you. If you're worried about adequate wi-fi reception, it's there if you want it, but if you want it, i'd suggest you've chosen the wrong sort of holiday. But if you fancy a bit of escape from the 'real' world, there's few places better. Bring a bike! (they'll take them on the ferry for you).

We were met on arrival by a man whose name I do not know and who was not the most welcoming, he didn't really know if our tent was ready (this was 6pm) and seemed annoyed by that fact. He handed me a bag on arrival to take all our rubbish away with us although there are 2 bins in the camp kitchen. We also met a lovely lady who was very friendly and eventually Daniel who was also very helpful. We stayed here for one night in a couple's bell tent. The tent was facing right on to the water which was lovely to wake up to in the morning. There is a bed and a couch in the tent. The bed wasn't very comfortable as the mattress was quite thin and there were several boards underneath which you could feel, but it was fine for one night. You are not allowed to bring any food into the tent as we were informed there was a fox around which would try to get into your tent at night if you left food in there. There was a camp kitchen which was mostly clean which you could cook in and leave your food in during your stay, there was also 3 toilets (one of which was blocked during our stay) and 3 showers within the same building. This was nice experience for one night but has the potential to be so much more.

What a beautiful place to tune out and tune in. In a crazy world this is the place to go. Don't expect the Ritz but if you got this far you probably ain't. I would love to be there now, sitting on a bench staring out to sea.
