  • As my first Airbnb stay, this is exactly what I'd hoped for. It's not a run-of-the-mill bed and breakfast but an individual, beautiful house lived in by welcoming individuals. The house is spectacular - it's a classic country house that has been restored by carefully and sympathetically. Molly's welcome and concern that everything was OK (when in fact everything was wonderful) was palpable, and we had great chats in the sunshine and by the fire.
    If you're looking for a distant host and a sterile hotel, this might not be the place for you. If you're looking for character, you'll get it in bucketloads.

  • We had a fantastic stay. The house is huge and beautiful, great location, amazing breakfasts and some wonderful nights by the fire and the very well stocked honesty bar. Great company!
    We can't wait to go back!

  • This home has been beautifully restored, with intricate plaster ceilings and antique rugs and furniture. The bed was very comfortable, nice linens, bath with a modern shower, and wifi hotspot was provided to ensure a good signal. I didn't notice the "smoking allowed" when I booked (this being a rare feature these days), and would have chosen differently had I seen this: a long term renter in the house is a smoker, which makes the common areas less appealing. The age of the home and surrounding trees meant for some eerie noise at night when the Easkey winds kicked up, might want to consider this if you are a light sleeper. Molly prepared a wonderful breakfast, and as we had to leave early after our second night, left a continental breakfast for us to enjoy before our departure. Guests should note that this house is unmarked, so get a look at photo before you travel there, and knock loudly as the host did not hear us on our first arrival. The location is somewhat remote, but a reasonable drive to Innishcrone, where Molly referred us to a wonderful pub, restaurant and the seaweed baths. The age of the home and its restoration provide a lot of interest, unfortunately the host may have been experiencing end-of-season burnout, because he was not much interested in answering questions about it.

  • We really enjoyed our stay in Ward and Molly's home. This is a manor home from the 1830s that Ward renovated: beautiful plasterwork etc. This is a very low-key place in the tiny surfing mecca of Easkey, Ireland, with front doors unlocked and no formality. Ward and Molly are friendly and are great cooks. Look forward to their delicious breakfasts.

    Don't expect a sterile hotel experience: the house can be tricky to find, the old doors and floors are a bit creaky. But at what hotel would you have an opportunity to join the owner for beers and learn about harvesting wild mushrooms in Lithuania or surfing in Sri Lanka?

  • Our host, Ward, was friendly and the location of the house is beautiful. We were disappointed however with the facilities and our overall experience. The exterior door of the house is not locked and there are no locks on the individual guest rooms. This left us uncomfortable with leaving our belongings in our room. The internet was very weak and slow in our room. Finally, the dining area is a communal table in the kitchen which prevents private conversation and dining. In the end, the vibe is more hostel than B&B.

    Response from Molly:

    This is my home not a hostel. Secretive stressed out paranoid people who want to remain anonymous should be staying in hotels not b&b's. We don't have private dining areas for private conversations, what homes do? An evening meal is a time to share (which i cooked especially for you upon your request before you ran away and bought a takeaway!!) If you want to lock your door just ask we have keys but this is rural Ireland , a safe friendly place, not NYC. All the other laptops get fine internet connection. Some people are unhappy with life no matter how much you go out of your way to please them it will never be enough full stop!

  • There are few experiences and memories which will stay with you, Easkey house, but more importantly the people we met on our trip here are some of them.

    Ward and Mollys home is beautiful in idyllic settings. Its shabby Chic style and the informal laid back attitudes maybe not everyones cup of tea, however Ward made us feel very much at home, and in-fact welcomed the guests to share stories, the evening drinks, and even become involved in an impromptu jam session. It was a great hub to explore the amazing coast line, Ward is very knowledgeable on the history and can recommend great day trips. A talented cook whom I owe the stolen recipe of the infamous garlic and butter mushrooms to… my partner and myself definitely will be coming back for some ‘Easkey Time!’

  • We absolutely loved our stay in this house! Because Molly and Ward were out of town, Jan met us and took care of us for 2 days. It was the highlight of our 10 day trip to Ireland. The spacious house is exquisitely decorated, the breakfasts are amazing, and there are lots of things to do locally. We highly recommend the sea-weed baths! And hiking/biking all around town. We were sad to leave and hope to visit again.

  • Our stay at Countryhouse B&B was fantastic! An eccentric, eclectic, graceful hidden gem of a partially restored mansion. Ward and Molly are entertaining, talented hosts and are proof that choosing to do what you enjoy in life pays quality dividends. Food was marvelous, we opted to join them for dinner (a pay what you will extra) and were treated to a gourmet feast, highlighted by fish they themselves had plucked from the sea. Our stay was an experience one would expect of fictional characters on adventure, (with out the overly dramatic plot twists). We enjoyed a lovely sunset stroll along the nearby coast.
