“Welcoming B&B - couldn't have asked for more”
Reviewed 14 August 2012

Welcoming hostess - only had to ask and she was more than willing to try and help. Clean, comfortable room - the website pictures do not do it justice, hot shower (shampoo was even provided!) and a lovely hot breakfast. (Beware - the included breakfast is toast/cereal only - 5euro extra for a cooked breakfast, but we were expecting this so it was no problem and i thought 5euro was very reasonable for what we got!)
Some people have mentioned problems with the card machine in previous reviews so we took cash - again no problems there.
All in all this was all we wanted and more. Lovely stay. Probably would need a car to stay here though. Bit of a walk without one.
Thank you for a lovely stay! :)

The bed and breakfast is on a very narrow road a few minutes outside of Kinvara itself. We found it with the help of Tomtom. It took a few moments to program in the location beforehand, and Tomtom found the nearby roads. It is very quiet at this B and B. There are no views or activities at the B and B itself, so it is mainly just a place to sleep. Sightseeing at the Cliffs of Moher and the Burren are reasonably close. Activities in Galway are a 30 minute or more drive away depending on traffic. Dunguaire Castle and Kinvara itself are close enough to walk to, but for our group used to wider streets and sidewalks that arrived late in the day, driving was the agreed upon option to find dinner in town.

Eileen Connelly met us at the door and showed us around. The building appears to be recently built. There is a near twin of the building next door that is not finished and not visible in the pictures on the site at booking.com. Our group of 4, had two upstairs rooms. Doors to the rooms are solid wood and heavy with heavy duty hardware that you must lock when you leave. The rooms themselves are good sized with a full size and twin bed each. Our room had a desk with reading lamp, nightstands for both beds. There was a small window looking out back to a work or construction area. There was a hair dryer and pot for heating water on the desk that were wired through the desk so that they could not be moved elsewhere. There were no extra electrical plugs in the room for plugging in a laptop or phone charger, so we unplugged the hair dryer remembering to plug it back in when we left. There is a sitting room downstairs with large screen television and a few comfortable looking sofas and chairs. Linens for the beds were old but fine. The bath was a fairly standard one and had average towels. The shower was good quality. Wireless internet was available as promised and without charge.

Hot breakfast is 5 Euro extra per person per day. Regular breakfast includes cereals, juice, coffee, tea. Yogurt is part of the more expensive cooked breakfast. We were the only ones having breakfast each of the two mornings we were there, so that Eileen Connelly stood by talking with us throughout breakfast which had a restraining effect on our two normally chatty teenaged boys.

Payment is cash only although we booked with a credit card to hold the reservation. Make sure that you remember. With an average price for the area and no particular stand out features, it was a comfortable place to sleep but not a destination to seek out on its own.

Clean throughout, comfy bed, lovely house, hot water and good water pressure all the time, and Eileen was a wonderful hostess. I couldn't give a higher recommendation anywhere. It was a short drive to see the many sights, and we wish we' d had time for a longer stay. This is a great base for site- seeing and the owner couldn't be nicer. She goes above and beyond to be helpful and informative.

This B&B could not have been better. It's new and constructed with fine materials, rooms are large and well-furnished, extremely clean, the modern bathrooms have an excellent shower, and it's very quiet, being in the countryside about a mile from Kinvara. Chatty Eileen is anxious to be the most help she can to her guests, and she goes the extra mile. When we arrived, we mentioned we wanted to find an old friend we'd lost track of a few years ago. She knew the man, and immediately called her husband to track him down and arranged for us to meet him at the local pub. Thanks to Eileen, we had a wonderful reunion, with a background of lively traditional music, in lovely Kinvara...and a quick drive back. Breakfast the next morning was delicious and plentiful. Don't miss this one!

Kinvarra Inn managed by Eileen was a delightful place to stay. It is exquisitly presented and both the accommodation and the breakfast were first class. Eileen cannot do enough to help you, she was terrific.

This is a great B & B and one which we are only too happy to recommend.

My wife and I stayed one night at the Kinvara Inn on May 26, 2010 during our recent visit to Ireland. This is a new B&B which offers good quality accommodation at a good price. The rooms are spacious, clean, and Eileen offers a great brekfast too. She was able to recommend a local pub for dinner which we found to be great. This is a convenient place from which to explore the Burren, Galway etc.. We had our own transportation and the approximately 2.0 km drive into the town centre was no problem.
