Excellent room, facilities, appliances, location and Ruth was nothing less than a dear friend always. It is the place to stay if you go to Westport!!
Ruth was great! On time, easy to find, the place was cozy. Ruth was informative and really nice. I would recommend staying there on your trip to Westport. Thanks!
We loved staying with Ruth. She is very sweet and helpful and really went out of her way to make our stay extra special. Ruth was immediately welcoming and warm and friendly. She picked us up from the bus stop and gave us an over-view tour of the town before she settled us in to our cozy room. The house was very clean and comfortable, and being able to use the kitchen was a big plus. The shared bathroom was absolutely no problem at all. Ruth stressed that we could take a shower any time we like and we felt very comfortable with the bathroom access. The fresh squeezed orange juice in the morning was s real treat! We highly recommend Ruth ' s home. We would stay there again in a heartbeat. Thank you Ruth!
We had a beautiful time in Ruth's cosy house which became a home for us for five days. Ruth is very nice, helps wherever she can and has some good advice concerning day trips, pubs ... Great! :-)
Ruth is the best host. Staying with her is like staying with family! Her home is very cozy and conveniently located on Westport. Westport is a very charming town without the hustle of a city. If i could id live there. I highly recommend staying here on your travels. I would definitely stay here again. Thank you Ruth!:)
Our stay with Ruth was very nice. She is a wonderful host and her house is situated perfectly for either walking to the pier as well as into town. Her recommendation for an restaurant ended up to be on of the best dinners we had in Ireland! Thanks Ruth!
