Stayed 3 nights, and we're made extremely welcome by Martha and her Mum. Room was very comfortable and warm. Breakfast was very good, and the tariff was very reasonable. Very quiet location, but still in the centre of the village. Will definitely go back.

Ryan's is a really good B & B which is clean, comfortable and friendly. The breakfast was tasty and the building was located only a very short walk from bars and restaurants for any other meals. It would be a good place to use as a base for touring Conemmara. I would be happy to recommend this place to other...

Our room was tiny but it did not matter. It was quiet as there is no pub below, unique for Cong. Martha gave us fantastic service and was a joy each morning as she looked after the breakfast service. Beds were comfy and shower had good power. Great service and nice location in Cong where you can walk to all...

I was so impressed with Martha Ryan -- energetic, friendly,...

We stopped here today on our way to Clonbur, just for a quick snack. To say we were impressed is an understatement. The food was fresh and plentiful, the service was extremely friendly and efficient yet not 'in your face' and the premises was immaculate. We actually commented that there wasn't so much as a speck of dust to be...
