We stayed at The Garden Gates B&B for just one night and thoroughly enjoyed the experience. This B&B has all the bells and whistles of a 5 star establishment and more. Our host Martina (and her two very friendly dogs) was very welcoming. She made us feel very at home straight away and was incredibly accommodating of my disabled mother.
The rooms are beautifully appointed and have great views of the surrounding farming area. We loved the country feel - especially the horse which you can see from the bedrooms.
It is perfectly situated between Castle Bar and Westport although I would give Castle Bar a wide berth and spend all your time in Westport, which has fantastic ocean views, restaurants, shops and a great township atmosphere. Martina was kind enough to recommend some great Westport restaurants to us one of which is the Shebeen which is a thatched room pub with great views and even better food.
If you want a beautiful B&B experience in gorgeous surrounds with an even better breakfast then this is a perfect choice. We would also highly recommend this accommodation for less mobile or disabled guests.
Thanks to Martina and her family for creating wonderful memories for us - you won't be forgotten.
Love Desiree, Jack and Jenny (Australia)
