Stayed here with my wife, kids, and mother. The host, Mike, was very warm and welcoming. He helped us carry our bags up the stairs too. The room we stayed in was on the top floor and had excellent views of the bay. The B&B itself is located on the main street along the water. A park with a children's playground and some monuments to the Lusitania and the Titanic are nearby too.
The rooms were pretty spacious for the type of bulding that it is. They were very clean. There is a television with the basic Irish channels on it.
There is a common area on the second floor with free wifi, tea and coffee service, biscuits, and a television that has satellite TV with many British and American channels.
I would definitely stay here again and would recommend it to people traveling with families. The only thing is this B&B does not have an elevator so if you have problems with steps you may want to inquire about booking one of the lower rooms. Our room was on the third floor which meant three flights of stairs, but that is also why we had fabulous views.
The rate for staying was also 60 euros a night less than it would have been to get our family into two rooms at the Commodore hotel, plues we had breakfast.
