As we had been driving through rain to get to Easkey, we arrived an hour or more earlier than arranged. Although Molly was out, Ward welcomed us and showed us to our rooms. The room we had was beautifully appointed with a view over fields to the Atlantic. We were very comfortable. The renovations to this country property are a work in progress but it has everything needed for a great B&B.
Breakfast in the kitchen with the other guests was enjoyable with a good Irish breakfast with some choices and good company.
We enjoyed exploring the area although Irish friends had wondered why we were staying in Easkey. They have now been educated to the delights we found, fossil hunting on the rocky beach, chatting to locals and the barman in the Fishermen's Weir Pub, climbing Knocknarea and visiting the Carrowmore Megalithic Cemetery.
On the first evening, Molly suggested we eat at the Beach Bar about 20 minutes drive away and for the second night we arranged for Molly to cook a meal for us. Both meals were delicious.
What a wonderful house, Molly is a great host. Breakfast and chat included. Sorry we couldn't stay longer. Hope to stay again later in the year. Many thanks for the warm welcome. Hope to have a jam around the piano next time. Loved it!
Molly is a wonderful host ... and what a majestic home. It's easy to feel like you're living in 1820 when you enter this grand old home with 14 foot ceilings and beautiful surroundings. Very rustic, very different ... and highly recommended.
We thoroughly enjoyed our stay for 1 night, and wished we could have stayed a bit longer. The house is immaculately restored, it's a delight. The main bedroom is the best, with a view onto the Atlantic. Breakfast was very good, big fry up and extras like fresh pineapple. The bar is a quirky delight, with some good wine.
Beautiful house, lovely breakfast, very friendly and welcoming. A unique experience and would be delighted to return.
Myself and 13 friends stayed in the Atlantic View Boutique Country House for a surfing weekend. Molly, the host, was amazing throughout the whole planning process and replied to all of my messages with helpful answers extremely promptly. She recommended surf schools, butchers, was flexible with arrival/departure times and made everything easy for me (the organiser!). The house itself is a really cool, old worldly, grand mansion. All of the bedrooms are a great standard and the house itself is just stunning. For anyone who likes a party the sound system in the main living room (with a pool table) is phenomenal! We surfed both days in Iniscrone (a 15 minute drive away) and had a memorable weekend. I would high recommend this property for a relaxing weekend break! :) ps. you'll need a car!
The house was absolutely beautiful, and the love that went into its restoration was apparent in every detail. We stayed in the sea view room, and it was definitely worth the extra €40.
