My daughter and I stayed at the White Cottages on 11/11/2016 and wish we had had longer as the vibe at this awesome seaside BnB is so nice and relaxing. The place is set right on the Skerries shore so has an outstanding view; the pub and restaurant area is just a mile or so away - close enough to... More

The view of Dublin Bay was fantastic. The owners were friendly and have wonderful suggestions on where to eat. Easy walking distance down to the boats walk area where the pubs are, where I literally had the best prawns I've ever ate in the world.

Staying at the White Cottages was very comfortable. The hosts were great. We were in the Crows Nest which afforded a great panorama of the bay and town. A word of caution, being in the attic meant the ceiling was canted and we did have to watch our heads. Breakfasts couldn't have been better. The first morning was a buffet... More

Skerries and the White Cottages are a great place to spend your first day and night when arriving in Dublin after and overnight flight from the US. The B&B is just a short drive from the airport and provides a brief warm up for driving on the wrong side of the road. We had a nice size room facing the... More

We love this place. We landed in Dublin and it is a short drive from the airport. The room we had has a large picture window overlooking the water. The owners are delightful and very helpful with recommendations for dinner, hiking and sightseeing. Joe does a great breakfast.

We only stayed one night at the White Cottages, but it was the highlight of the trip to Ireland. The cottage is seaside with beautiful views from the terrace. The hosts were excellent and go out of their way to make sure you get to experience the charm of the B&B (served a delicious breakfast in the morning) and the... More

To start, the rooms are beautiful as well as the location. We were in the top floor, Crow's Nest. It was clean and the beds were comfortable. Able to open the windows and listened to the water all night. There were a few small spiders in our bathroom but most likely was due to the window being opened at night... More

We stayed at the white cottages for one overnight . The views where first class from the bedrooms breakfast was good very clean and bright. Price of rooms maybe 10 euro per person less would be nice . But apart from that it was very nice indeed.
