Excellent experience and made good friends which is made clear by the fact that I stayed there every month for the past 17 years The friendly host and hostess go out of their way to make you feel at home The secutity is also excellent, which in this day and age is important.

Blarney House in Beacon Bay East London has become my home away from home on my many business trips to East London. Fran and Brendan are both warm, charming hosts who do their utmost to make one feel welcome and comfortable, without being intrusive. The accomodation is comfortable and clean, with all one needs while away from home. Fran's meals are culinary feasts, her desserts sublime and breakfast made to accomodate individual tastes. Close to all amenities, in a quiet suburb,with the sparkling Indian ocean a short drive away, Blarney house is a delightful gem not to be missed. Whether sitting on your balcony watching the abundant local bird life while catching up on emails, or taking a quiet break away from the hustle of city life, Blarney House has what you need. You will leave warmed by a bit of special Irish charm in the heart of Africa. A definite stop over on your next visit to East London.

Room Tip: Ask for one of the front rooms with a view of the ocean.

Having attempted to source accommodation for a family of 5 in East London posed to be a task and a half, until Blarney House made contact with me. From arriving at Blarney House, staying 6 days until the time we left the service, atmosphere, food and accommodation were fabulous! Having lived in East London and having traveled both Nationally and Internationally the facility and management of Blarney House is Top Notch ~ Brendan and Fran McCole's hospitality exceeded all expectations! It is a pity that this B&B does not have a stand alone restaurant as the Breakfast alone were of a 5 Star quality and would give the Local Restaurants a run for their money. :)

Well done to Fran and Brendan, we will definitely return soon!
