“Cute B & B”
Reviewed 8 October 2013

Very cute bed and breakfast. Right in Roundstone "town". Room had lots of space. Was very clean including bathroom. Had view of Roundstone bay from our window. Breakfast was plentiful. Cereal and a huge traditional Irish breakfast. Lots of parking on street.

Roundstone is small and the surrounding area is beautiful, I wish we had been staying there two nights. Go to O'Dowds for dinner! Some of the freshest best seafood we've ever had! (And friendly people / great atmosphere).

I saw a Monty Hall documentary on Inishnee and Roundstone and just had to see it for myself. So we stayed at Wits End B & B in Roundstone. Norah and Eileen were so welcoming. Our room was clean and nicely decorated. The view was gorgeous and breakfast was fresh and delicious as well as beautifully presented. I hope to return and stay longer next time.

Decided on a whim to have a weekend away in Connemara and booked Wits End because of the great reviews it had received - which it certainly lived up to! From Nora and Eileen's lovely warm welcome, to the very comfortable room and fabulous breakfast, we had a thoroughly enjoyable stay. We hope to return there in the not-too-distant future!

We were welcomed late in the day by Nora with coffee, tea and snacks. Tidy, clean rooms, with fresh flowers, overlooking the bay. Quiet little town (no ATM or gas station) until you get to O'Dowd's or the Shamrock. Eileen, the owner is a hoot! My wife was ill several data and Nora delivered trays to the room for her. Breakfasts are wonderful. Fabulous dinner next door at Vaughan's. Great time in Clifden at the arts festival and at Kylemore Abby. For a most pleasant, welcoming place with gracious, warm and friendly hosts, stay at the Wits End in Roundstone. You'll love it.

This was a special trip to take my parents for their Diamond Wedding Anniversary and we could not have been made more welcome by Eileen, Oliver and Nora, who were so helpful and couldn't do enough for us. We all thoroughly enjoyed our stay and everything was perfect, from the comfortable rooms to the delicious breakfasts. Thanks so much to you all - can't wait to return one day!

Room Tip: Lovely views from front rooms

Our hosts in Westport highly recommended Wits End when they heard we were headed toward Galway. We stopped for 2 hrs at the Kylemore Abbey on the way for a lovely afternoon. Eileen offered us tea/coffee the minute we stepped inside, and we had a great chat while I ruined my dinner appetite with some delicious raisin bread.
Our room overlooks the Atlantic, is tastefully done and very comfortable. There are a couple good restaurant options within a block. I would encourage any of my friends to stay here.

Room Tip: You can't go wrong. Playground across the street.

My nephew suggested we stay in Roundstone and we used TA to help select our B&B. What a lovely place and such great and friendly hosts. Oliver greeted us and showed us to our room. Very nicely arranged with enough decoration to ne interesting but not overwhelming. A comfortable bed with a small but good shower and bathroom proved to be a great start.
We then met Eileen, one of the owners and a bright bubbly friendly person. She had already told us when we booked that there was music and dancing in Roundstone on Wednesday evenings in the summer, and this was the alst night of the season. What a wonderful surprise. The musicians and dancers were all very local, young (mostly) and talented including the 6 year olds that were happy to show us their step dancing skills. We had a great evening and all for 8.50 Euro!. We also met Nora, our other host and saw her at the dancing.
We slept well and the next day was my wife's birthday. We had a parting gift after an excellent breakfast of some cake that Eileen's daughter (13) had made. A wonderful gesture from some of the nicest and friendliest folks we met on our trip.
We rate Wits End right up there with our other favorite Irish B&B in Kenmare. Thanks for making us so welcome.
