Pretty cottages overlooking the sea. Small dining area outside for sunny days. Lovely staff, very pleasant and accommodating. Our room was fairly small, but had all of the facilities of the bigger rooms. Will stay again.

We spent the last night of a 5 day tour at the white cottages and literally did not want to leave. The view is stunning as it is on the edge of the sea and the personal service from the owner Jo is fab. A really relaxing,laid back place to end a great trip. Skerries is a lovely little seaside town with a harbour and a few good places to eat and it is literally 20 mins from the airport. Would definitely recommend it and will most definitely return.

We could not imagine a better b&b experience. We stayed here 7 nights for our honeymoon, and we were completely amazed and satisfied by the cozy, professional, and helpful service. All the essentials were great: food, room cleanliness and comfort, blanket warmth, etc. But on top of that, Joe, Jackie, and Jess made us feel very at home the whole time. They also provided helpful suggestions about our trip. The sea view from the terrace and rooms was fantastic.

We started the trip with some of our itinerary planned out, but were open to new ideas. Joe was extremely helpful and knowledgeable about attractions in the area. Towards the end of the trip, we just asked him what we should do that day, and he came up with wonderful suggestions every time.

Speaking of attractions in the area, Skerries is a great home base to see a lot of great places in Ireland. We easily traveled to beaches, national park walks, museums, prehistorical/archaeological sites, boat tours, historical buildings, castles, monasteries, and lake trails. Much of this was by car. Dublin and all its wonders are very easily accessible by train.

Skerries itself is a fantastic location. We spent many hours strolling on the beach, eating in local restaurants, and enjoying the view. A great sea tour (Skerries Seatours) leaves from the dock a short walk away.

The White Cottages is great service in a great location near many great attractions. Staying here makes us want to come back to Ireland, next time for longer. Thanks a million Joe, Jackie, and Jess!

I have never stayed in a place with so much warmth and charm as well as excellent food and breath taking views. I arrived back home today from my trip and we are already checking dates to return. The lobster lunch was a sumptuous feast and the breakfasts were heavenly. Nothing was too much trouble for Joe, Jackie and Jess and we were made to feel a valued friend (or part of the family) as soon as we arrived. The setting is stunning and we can't wait to come back. Thank you so much for everything you did for us.

We were lucky enough to have breakfast available to us even though we weren't actually guests. The culinary delights from the kitchen in addition to the awesome customer service added to the enjoyment of our fabulous stay in Skerries. Joe, Jessice & Jackie run a wonderful b & b in a locality that can't be beaten. We were so impressed that we booked our last night there after a week traveling up North. It was like coming home. Thanks guys we certainly will be back.

We were looking for a place near the airport for our final two nights. We wanted to do some final sightseeing (Newgrange and Hill of Tara) and wanted a place that while near the airport had some charm and ambiance. White Cottages was the perfect place. We had the Harbor Master room. I don't think it is possible to have a nicer view. The decor was charming. Joe went out of his way for us and we were appreciative.
For those going this summer, you may want to enjoy tea on the terrace. The owners' daughter, Jess, is doing a tea in the afternoons. Though we were not able to plan to be there for it, it appeared to be lovely and she seemed to enjoy making everything just perfect. She does need advance notice, so try to include this in your day.
So pleasant to sit on the terrace or in the room and watch the beautiful scene right in front of you.
