“cozy cuasnog”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 1 April 2012

Looking for an unfussy but quality guesthouse or B & B to stay at in Wexford then look no further than Cuasnog. Am I letting a good secret go here by posting this review? Who knows.

I originally booked 2 nights bed & breakfast accommodation staying in Wexford to celebrate a friend's 50th birthday. The owner Caitriona and partner Theo offered a very reasonably priced 3-night discounted rate and I honestly don't believe I could have bettered my choice in terms of location, comfort, food, service and value on this my first ever visit to Ireland.

Although only 5 minutes walk from the town centre Cuasnog offers privacy, seclusion, easy accessibility, quieteness and perfect requirements for the discerning traveller be it solo (or couple) without the added costs involved regarding where to stay in South East Ireland but I will say if you don't do 'normal', working class, family run, or dog friendly environment then forget it. Am I being politically incorrect here or not? Quite frankly I don't give a rat's [--].

With tasty home-cooked (and locally sourced) fayre, very clean well appointed rooms, warm cozy feel and complimentary use of a mountain bike to get around I can happily say I would stay at Cuasnog over and over if ever visiting this region of Ireland again.

Laid back and traditional in welcome - nothing seemed too much trouble - (provided you ask of course) along with a genuinely homely feel, Cuasnog is a small private house (3 rooms only) ideal for business, pleasure or convenience should you be visiting the area.

Ideal as a base to explore the nearby unspoilt beaches of Curracloe, White Gap and Ballinesker (my apologies if I have misspelt) or the local wild fowl sanctuary (an ornithologists paradise) this is a lovely little hidden gem of a place to stay for a few days.

How many B&Bs would offer you a drop of "Uisge Beatha" with your porridge. A great welcoming house to stay in.

We enjoyed the comfort of this delightful bed and breakfast for the first week iof the Wexford opera Festival in October. From my early email contact booking Cuasnog, Caitriona was friendly and helpful. Thus continued during our stay. The room was beautifully presented and immaculately clean. The large, modern bathroom was much appreciated. Our room was readied for our return each evening with heater and light turned on.
A particular treat was the home cooked breakfast. The dining room was comfortable and we enjoyed, over the week, a lovely variety of Irish inspired meals with fresh baked brown bread abd scones each day. Caitriona was very helpful with her detailed local knowledge and ready availability of maps of the area. Our stay was a wonderful introduction to beautiful Ireland and its friendly people.
It is perfectly located for walking to the Opera!

Room Tip: The front room has the biggest bathroom and a lovely aspect to the garden

Very nice time in cuasnog, we arrived down for our friend's opening in the Wexford Arts Centre and Catriona and Theo were very accommodating and welcoming, we were delighted to find out that our 2 little jack russells were also welcome! Impeccable rooms, great shower, underfloor heating, lovely linen bedding and delicious organic full irish breakfast with freshly squeezed orange juice and as much coffee as we wanted, not to mention the homemade conserves and marmalade. Great attention to detail and warmth, would stay again and highly recommend.

We needed a bed and breakfast when we travelled to Wexford for a funeral.
Caitríona was more than helpful even before we arrived, she notified me of florists and where the funeral home could be found. When we arrived it was late and she made us so welcome and we were so pleased we had not stayed at an in-personal hotel.
In the morning we had a marvellous breakfast and sat in a lovely warm dining room which had a fantastic fire.
I cannot say enough in praise of this find of a bed and breakfast and if we had more time, we definitely would have enjoyed a longer stay with Caitriona .

This is a particularly lovely B&B. The rooms, though simple, are very tastefully turned out and there is real attention to detail. Even better though is the warm welcome from Caitriona, the woman of the house and her fabulous cooking! I was working in Wexford at night and especially appreciated the fact that she would serve me breakfast a little late in the kitchen - felt very homey.

Room Tip: They're all good.
