“exquisite hostess”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 1 August 2014

It has been a privilege for us to get to know the hostess of Brambledown B&B, her husband and her daughters. Karen invites her guests in the beautiful kitchen (of her own design), and cooks a personalised, delicious and healthy breakfast, with home-made bread, fresh fruit, organic yoghurt,.... Her enthousiasm and warmheartedness are unparalleled. There are only two guestrooms and they deserve to be occupied every night, with visitors who can appreciate and respond to real kindness. Karen, if you come to read this, thumbs up for all your efforts and we send you all our gratitude and energy tot you and to your family! You deserve an AA cum laude!

Room Tip: only two rooms, both excellent (quiet, beautifully designed)

The house is beautifully clean and modern. The guest rooms are bright and fresh, thoughtfully appointed with great attention to detail and comfort. There is a lovely guest sitting area upstairs with a wonderful view from the deck. Our hosts were more than friendly and accommodating. Karens breakfasts are superb, featuring her own homemade breads, fresh fruit, cereals, yogurt, plus she offers every option for a cooked breakfast. Brambledown is one of those special places you want to return to. Also, it is only a few minutes drive to the boat dock if you are taking the outing to the Skellig islands, and nearby Knightstown offers at least 3 good eating establishments and is quieter than Portmagee.

Brambledown is a beautiful modern B&B run by a very friendly and helpful couple. Our stay couldn't have been more comfortable. The room was bright, clean and comfortable. The breakfast the next morning was superb with a selection of homemade breads, fresh fruits and a fry! The owners were highly accommodating, they recommended a fantastic restaurant for us and suggested sites for us to visit on the island. They did their upmost to ensure that our stay was enjoyable and comfortable! A pleasure to visit.
