My wife and I recently returned from our trip to Ireland and are just getting around to reviewing some of the great places we were fortunate to enjoy. It was easy driving to Petra House, and once there Joan (and later Frank) immediately made us feel welcome and right at home.

Not sure what exactly you mean by “the double room “, however we stayed in early June for 100€ a night, two people single room. Also, I would keep trying to call. Frank and Joan are owner operators and are hands on with caring for the premises. I know they also close during slow periods. Well worth your time. This is a fantastic place to stay with wonderful hosts. Conveniently located with off street parking too.

It is probably about a 15- to 20-minute walk to the center of town, where many shops and restaurants are. If you walk slowly, it might take longer than that.

Just send them an email. You can find their email address on the website. Frank, the owner, is very friendly and quick to respond.

There is no air conditioning but they do provide a portable room fan that worked fantastic.
