“Wonderful homely place”
Reviewed 12 August 2013 via mobile

Had a lovely stay - Maria is a star and makes the best breakfasts. Found us a room with a sea view despite a booking cock up by irish ferries. Tramore has a bit of everything and the most amazing beach. If you want to feel right at home,then this is the B&B to choose.

If one wanted an hospitable host then look no further than Maria at Killerig - with a spacious sea view room, quality décor and excellent food. Just to cap our stay the weather was excellent.
We hope Maria did well in her Dublin half marathon - what commitment for the last twenty odd years

Maria is such a gracious host and the room facing the ocean was just perfect. I watched the sun rise one morning and it was so beautiful. Delicious breakfast, warm hospitality, great location for us. Hope to see her again one day. Remember to bring an adapter for Irish electrical outlets as they differ from the continent and the UK.

Room Tip: Rooms facing the bay offer fantastic sunrises.

We had a comfortable night in a nicely furnished and decorated room with a lovely view of the sea. Maria's recommendation of The Seahorse Inn for dinner was much appreciated as the food was wonderful. The only down sides were the small CRT TV, the lack of a plug for the sink, a dirty roller blind in the ensuite, a non-working bathroom light and nowhere in the shower to put shampoo, conditioner, shower gel. A few minor tweaks will make this a first class place to stay

Maria and John were wonderful hosts and were a great help in what to see, where to go, where to eat, travel times to attractions etc. The only problem we had w/ the place was the house was cold! I realize there is no central heat but we were simply cold during our stay there. I should add that the temperature was in the high 30's to low 40's (Fahrenheit) while we were there. One minor concern was that the back end of our bathtub was a stained glass window!! People coming up the stairs would be able to see if someone were bathing! I would suggest that they put another panel of frosted glass in the tub area so that you could feel more comfortable about bathing. Maria and John were perhaps the most engaged of the places where we stayed. I would be happy to stay there again, perhaps not in the room w/ the stained glass tub, though!

Room Tip: Don't get the room w/ the stained glass window in the tub enclosure!

Great location. Quaint town. Dad and I stayed here one night. Maria and John, the owners were delightful. Maria recommended a pub in town for dinner. The best meal of our whole trip! Thank you.
The room was cheerful and comfortable. Lovely home.

The view from our rooms was worth the travel to this small seaport town on the East Coast of Ireland. Marie and John our host were very accomodating and helpful. We were traveling on Sunday when the Ireland rugby game with France was being played. We arrived during gametime and asked to see the game. She ushered us into the kitchen to watch with them the remaining minutes. The rooms were clean and the bed comfortable. They recommended an excellent restuarant for dinner and the owner stayed after hours to accomodate us. Tramore is a special place with beaches and a beautiful view. Killerig House will make your stay memorable.

Room Tip: Ask for seside view.
