“Unique B&B”
Reviewed 27 September 2013

Great Keppel is a unique and indidual family home where my wife and I were made to feel extremely welcome. Even though we arrived late at night nothing was too much trouble. Our room was well equiped and very comfortable and the choice of breakfast was excellent. It was a great location only 5 minutes from a lovely beach and there is a bus stop close by to get into Dublin without the car. Alvis is always on hand with information and bus timetables and even gave us change for the bus as they do not take notes or give change. We would certainly stay here again.

Have just returned from a stay at the B& B.
Alvis and Ray were hosts supreme, made you very welcom and nothing was too much trouble. You could have practically anything for breakfast. Be it a choice of cereals, a continental breakfast or a freshly cooked full Irish.
The rooms were lovely, clean, comfortable and very well equipped.
The hotel was well sited ,close to the beach and golf course and public transport was virtually outside he front gate.
We had a brilliant break and would go back there anytime.
Very highly recommended.

We prefer to go to great keppel every time when we are travelling in Ireland. The Location of the b&b between the Airport & Dublin City is excellent, next to the beach. Alvis & Ray are very warm & hospitable and it always feels like coming home when arriving at Great Keppel. They are very helpful and give some very good advices how to travel around and what to see in Ireland. The rooms are always clean & comfortable. The breakfasts are of great variety and always freshly cooked. Thanks Alvis & Ray and we are looking forward to coming back soon.

Room small, BB unclean, parking dirty. We accessed the room. It was unacceptable. We had reserved a four star BB. We felt this was a one star. We left to go to hotel. Our agent Alainn Tours from Ireland gave us wrong information..

Great Keppel B&B is a beautiful guest house set in a fabulous location. The view from our bedroom window was stunning! Alvis and Ray are very friendly hosts who aim to please. They make you feel very welcome and nothing would appear to be too much trouble. Their local knowledge is a great asset especially if like us, you want to play a round of golf or 2! If golf isn't your thing the beach is only a short walk distance away. Alvis's breakfast is a must and it really does set you up for the day ahead. We would definitely recommend that if you are going to Portmarnock that you stay at Great Keppel you definitely won't be disappointed. We will certainly be making a return visit very soon!

Room Tip: Ask for a room overlooking the golf course.

This B&B was selected due to the good location, close to the airport, Dublin City and Drogheda. The host was very friendly and gave us some good tips. If your room is towards the street it is quite noisy. The breakfast was very good and served at the pre-arranged time. We felt that the bathrooms were very small and that the whole rooms would need some renovation.
