I recently enjoyed my second stay at The Rocks guesthouse in Ballina, County Mayo. Location is particularly important to me because I depend upon public transport. I walked from The Rocks to the centre, past the train and bus stations, in a quarter of an hour. Service was commendable in every way. Communications were a pleasure. Booking from England was...

Stayed here two nights, and it was excellent. The place was very clean, and quite. There was a kitchen area available for us to use which was fantastic. The owners were very friendly and welcoming and were able to recommend things to do in the town, etc. Great experience and will be back.

As an experienced b & b/guest house traveler in both Ireland and Scotland, I can honestly say this is the worst place I've ever encountered. It's just a cut above the most tawdry of youth...

Travelled to Ballina for a family wedding in Bellek Castle. When we arrived at the B&B we were informed that we had to be out of the room by 10:30 and breakfast was extra early due to the owner having to take her daughter to a football match. On entering the room the room was quite cold and the beds...
