“Quiet, welcoming, warm and wonderful.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 29 June 2014

My family and I are living in Dublin for the summer, and recently stayed in the Ardmore B&B for a quiet weekend getaway from the hustle and bustle of the city.

We could not have been more delighted with the Ardmore B&B. It seems like a fairly new place, as there do not seem to be many reviews on any of the typical sites, but don't let that make you nervous - this is well worth a visit.

Patricia and John, the hosts, were extremely welcoming, even before we arrived (Patricia reached out to us to make sure that we were fine for our visit). She greeted us upon our arrival, and both she and Paul took great care of us while we were there. It felt very much like spending time in the family home - except without any expectation that we'd help with the chores. :-)

Our room was lovely, plenty spacious for the three of us, and the bathroom was wonderful, bright, and spacious (I've stayed in plenty of other places where it seemed more like an afterthought). Their breakfast offering was delightful and delicious too!

Finally, the nearby town of Ardmore is quiet but also well worth a visit. There's at least one great restaurant there, there are nice beaches, and there's a cliff walk of a few miles that is scenic and peaceful.

A+ on all counts; we would return without hesitation, and recommend to others without fail.

I stayed in the double room with a friend just few days ago, for 3 nights. Paul and Patricia exceeded all expectations as hosts. We felt like we were staying with friends and would recommend this place to all. The rooms are exceptionally clean and welcoming. The breakfasts were delicious and the company of our hosts was the icing on the cake. The jacuzzi tub was the perfect way to relax after a long day of exploring the area. Overall, one of the best places I ever stayed at. Two thumbs up.

For some reason this site checked off "excellent" for the swimming pool and fitness centre, which are not available at the property... And it's not allowing me to remove it.

I was searching on the web for the right place to stay in Ardmore and i came across this b&b's website, and boy am I glad I chose it!! It exceeded all of my expectations. I booked the superior twin/double room complete with the largest jacuzzi bath I have seen yet, it even had mood lights and complementary bubble bath.

I was really impressed with the modern decor and the cleanliness was of a very high standard. The young hosts Paul and Trish were both very welcoming and informative and nothing was too much trouble. I also must mention the food and service provided to us both, outstanding quality and we both left very satisfied. I wound definitely highly recommend and will return in the near future.

We spent our Anniversary evening at the Ardmore B&B. It was a wonderful place in a great location to start our Anniversary trip to Ireland.

Paul made late reservations at White Horses (FAB!) for dinner. He also drove us into town so we could have a bottle of wine and not worry about the driving aspect.

He took the time to show us wonderful walks and must-see locations in the great historic town of Ardmore.

We reserved the jacuzzi room at the B&B. It ranks as one of the best tubs that I have ever soaked in. For couple traveling, I highly recommend this room as it is very large, modern and offers amenities. (You can't go wrong - all rooms have on-suites and were larger then any of the other B&Bs we stayed at in Ireland)

My husband and I look forward to another visit to Ireland and to the Ardmore B&B.

Stayed here over the weekend. The b&b is beautifully decorated and furnished. It has a lovely garden! The hosts are just so so nice! We were greeted on arrival with lovely coffee and scones and shown too our room!

The bedroom had the worlds most comfortable bed! Super king size!!!!!! Also had an amazing shower and walk in wardrobe and flat screen tv!!

Breakfast was excellent! I had the full Irish and my girlfriend had the chocolate pancake! Both were amazing! We also had scones, granola and yoghurt and there was lots more available!

I really can't recommend this b&b enough! Service and standards higher than any hotel I have stayed in!

Just back from spending a night down in Ardmore. Booked into Ardmore B&B by sheer chance and were absolutely charmed by our visit. Arrived to a warm welcome from our young hosts Paul & Patricia who welcomed us warmly into their home. We were shown to an extremely spacious Bedroom which was extremely luxurious complete with a Jacuzzi Bath & Shower. We were invited to have afternoon tea & cake on arrival. Following morning a lovely Breakfast awaited with a variety of choices both cold and cooked. We were so impressed with the warmth of our welcome and would definitely recommend it .

We arrived at the property and met Paul, a genuinly warm guy who was doing a spot of outside maintanace. He then took us into the house were we met Tricia who gave us an equally warm welcome. We dropped our bags into our room, which was bright clean and spacious, decorated lavishly and with great taste in cool blues creams and whites. The bed was enormous and great care had been taken with dressing the bed with coordinating pillows cushions and a quilt which was warm but as light as a feather, bed side cabinets and lights and a wall mounted television. The en suite was also imacculate with a huge walk in power Shower. Over in the corner of the bedroom was a door, which Paul told us was a wardrobe, which it was, but so much more, it had l9oads of space for clothes and your cases, but also a chair, power points and a surface that you could put your toiletries ect on and a wall mounted mirror. We went into the lounge and enjoyed wondeful cakes and buns and scone and jam fresh from the oven with a very welcome pot of tea. Paul stay and chatted and we watched a short information DVD about Ardmore and its history and residents which we really enjoyed.
We asked where we could go for an evening meal, and not only did Paul recommend places but he took the time to draw us a map, which we found very handy. We ate at Aherns which I've mentioned in another post. The next day we had the most wonderful freshly cooked breakfast, absolutely delicious, it was all good but the egg was cooked to perfection and the black pudding was excellant. We really enjoyed our stay and I would highly recommend this stunning property. Thank you Paul and Tricia, we will be back.

Room Tip: Paul told us that they were just reovating one of the back downstairs room which has a jaccuzzi bath...
