“Nice location, poor breakfast”
Reviewed 11 September 2012

The Convent offers a nice view of Ireland's only fiord and is located within walking distance of the town of Leenane. Yes, it's a converted convent with stain glass windows still in place in the dining hall. The room was small but quite adequate for two people and passed my wife's 'clean' standards. For one night's stay it was fine. There is a nice sitting room and living room and the one staff member brought us tea. Breakfast was very poor as we observed the cereal and fresh fruit sitting out all afternoon and night before being available the next morning.

Arrived to a closed door, not a sole around until after 5pm. Cold rooms with broken shower, nearly scalded myself. The breakfast service was one of the most bizarre, with our server/waiters methods of getting our order was shouting from the kitchen door into the dining room. This is without doubt the worst BnB I have ever stayed in and prices to match hotel prices. Pick any other accommodation in Leenane, this one's BAD.....

Very clean and tidy budget B&B 100m from the centre. Great location, our room overlooked Killary harbour. Rooms are small but you're not in Leenane to stay in. There are 2 large lounge areas if the weather is bad. The breakfast room retains some fine stained glass from its previous incarnation as a nunnery. Would definitely stay here again if returning to Leenane.
