“Short and Sweet”
Reviewed 19 October 2009

Stayed at The White Cottages our last night in Ireland as it was close (30 minutes) to the airport and we wanted to stay in a small, seaside town. The White Cottages is right on the water and the town of Skerries is very nice. Don't miss the crab and prawns at The Stoop Your Head and the coal fire at Nealons pub. Can't comment on the hosts as they were away while we were there and we were greated by a friend and never saw anyone again. Also can't comment on the breakfast, as per above.

Gorgeous Views! Wonderful Hosts. Great breakfast!
Immaculate, beautiful decor. Loved the lounge with kitchenette just for the guests with french doors out to the deck that is right on the water! Our last evening with the full moon - Mountains of Mourne to the left, the lights of Skerries to the right, sailboats bobbing in the water, seals playing around the rocks - Heavenly. Jacque's paintings are lovely too.
Only negative was the bed was against the wall and one of us was forced to climb over the other to get out of bed. Even so would and will stay again and again and just hope they never go out of business!

The B&B is really beautiful, you couldn´t stay in a house closer to the sea, and the village is nice, with a small fishing harbour and with all the commerce you may need.
Rooms are neat, and the breakfast is abundant and diverse, very well cooked. Besides, people attending the house are very kind, they will try to help you any time you need.

We found the location terrific, the hosts friendly and helpful and the room very comfortable and clean. A wonderful breakfast with particularly good coffee. The walk to restaurants was comfortable. Stayed here to recuperate from jet lag and loved it. Easy drive to Newgrange, Trim etc.

I have never stayed anywhere as amazing as the white cotteges. The view was incredible. Our hosts made us feel like family, and did everything in there power to make us feel at home. We stayed in the Captains room and the v iew was stunning. I will be counting the days until I can return. Skerries is a great town. The train station is within walking distance, which is great. You will not be dissapointed!

Booked this B&B because it was close to the water and was an easy trip to Dublin. What a marvelous surprise! Clean, pressed linens, freshly lovingly prepared breakfast. Jacquie loves her business and treats her guests with great care. We HIGHLY recommend this B&B and the Life Boat restaurant. Don't miss the opportunity to stay here if at all possible.

Stayed with these fantastic people for 5 days myself and my husband.
The best b and b we ever stayed in. The food was amasing and felt so at home loved all the little extra touches.
We have travelled all over the world and the views from every room in this house would take your breath away. Great value for money. have already booked again for august. dont forget your swim suit as you can jump from bed straight into the sea.
