Stayed here for four nights at end of august--everything about the place is 1st class--from the welcome, the decor, the room, the food and the location. We often stay places and say "I must go back there"--this one we will definitely go back to. Our one regret was that we didn't stay for longer but we had booked another 5*...

The owner is friendly. The room was clean an the bathroom big. A good breakfast Service in a room with great view will let you stay longer there. The B&B is situated outside of town, so a car is helpful.

We were amazed by the large size of our room and impressed by the outstanding friendliness of the wonderful couple who own this B&B. David gave us a great recommendation for a restaurant near the Ballybunion golf course and shared his extensive knowledge of what to visit in the area. Can't say enough about how much we enjoyed our stay!

The friendly owner said to have a good B&B you have to provide a comfortable bed, a hot shower and a great breakfast, and The Tides does an outstanding job on all three. The spacious rooms were nicely decorated and provided a restful night's sleep. The breakfast has a nice buffet to start plus you get to order off the...
