There is not much to add that hasn’t already been written about the “Fisherman’s Rest” previously. My wife,15 year old son, and me agree with other reviewers that Danny is indeed a riot……but so, might I add, is Mairead. Mairead may not joke around as much as her husband….but we witnessed her peeling off a few pointed lines aimed directly at Danny….zeroing in on her target like a guided missile…..which was quite hilarious).
However, aside from the laughs and the fun of it all, just as importantly, Mairead and Danny are quite the professionals, and it shows in every aspect of their business.
The Fisherman’s Rest is spotlessly clean. The furnishings are comfortable, the rooms are airy and beautifully decorated, and all public portions of the home are conducive to relaxing and enjoying the wonderful views. Guests are frequently asked what they might need in their rooms, only because Danny and Mairead wouldn’t know, as they treat the rooms as belonging to the guests for as long as they stay, and they will not enter them unless asked.
The breakfast is plentiful and of high quality….and they don’t appear to skimp on anything.
I am not sure what else someone could want in a B&B that they can’t find at the Fisherman’s Rest. I know we couldn’t think of anything that Danny and Mairead didn’t think of beforehand.
Trust us…….. for the comfort, the fun, the helpful information, and the sheer warmth and pleasantness of the hosts, you can’t go wrong spending some time at the Fisherman’s Rest. We intend to go back someday soon.
