Unfortunately I did not get out to the island due to weather, which I had been warned might happen When I booked. I exchanged several emails and ph calls with Billy leading up to the trip, with prompt response and helpful info.
We had an absolutely fantastic stay on the Great Blasket, Billy and Killian were so helpful and very quick to reply to any queries we had. Would definitely recommend getting the boat with the lads as the views along the coast are breathtaking.
Very comfortable and clean accommodation and surprisingly warm :) Had one of the best nights sleep, only the waves and seals to keep you awake.
Thanks Lads, we will 100% be back some time
Unfortunately we weren't able to reach Great Blasket Island because there were no ferries going at this day because of the stormy weather. To contact Billy was very easy and he refunded the payment without hesitation. Great correspondence. Next time I'm around I'll try to book Billy's offer again.
Billy and Killian were amazing hosts, and there accommodations were perfect for what became the best 3 nights of our 3 week vacation on the Blaskets!
Wij vonden de locatie supper. Mooi eiland en mooi strandje. Ook super met de zeehonden. De beheerder heeft ons het huisje laten zien en onze bedden opgemaakt. Hij hielp ons als we vragen hadden. Meer hebben we ook niet van hem verwacht.
Stay at Blasket island is an axeperience that can change your life! Billy was not in the island instead there were Killiar. What i nice guy. I was the only guest so i could taste the hostel like a private house. I will return as soon as possible.
I enjoy everything ,if you are a person that love nature and wildlife this is a place for you!
I was on the Island last week for 3 days with my sister, my mother and 2 brothers. The island is amazing. It's undiscribeble. You can see the beauty of the world. It's a gift. It's so quiet that i totaly felt calm. I didn't know that the world had so beautiful spot like here. The people are also very friendly. Kylian catched fish for us. that was so lovely. I felt at home immidiatly. I am sure I will come back. It's so peaceful. It's like heaven on earth on this Island.
