This was indeed a little piece of heaven. Garrykennedy is a fabulous little harbour and Larkins Pub has a huge outdoor area where the kids can roam around safely while mammy & daddy have a dinner in peace! There are lots of forest walks around and a playground at the harbour.
As for Marie's B&B...is was like home from home. Marie, and Paul, made us feel like family even before we arrived. The accommodation is ideal for people with kids...we had 2 large rooms to ourselves and a playroom that was fully kitted out with lots of things to entertain the kids....and there were swings outside and lots of space for a good run around while mum & dad sat in the comfy swing chairs for adults! We had the use of our own fridge should we wish to use it and were only a short drive to Portroe where we picked up a freshly baked pizza to bring back to the B&B on the evening we arrived.
We will certainly be back for another stay....
We thoroughly enjoyed our visit to this little gem of a place, our only regret is we didn't stay long enough. Marie couldn't be anymore welcoming. The place was spotless and had more than enough to keep my little family entertained. We would definitely stay here again.
Marie (and her husband) are such great hosts. Their B&B with a stunning garden is perfect for some quiet days near Lough Derg. The pub at the lakeside is within walking distance. We had a really nice dinner there. The rooms are big (you get the whole upper floor to yourself (with 2 bedrooms, bathroom and playroom - great place for the kids on rainy days!). Marie will cook anything for you for breakfast and has a lot of tips on what to do in the area.
We all had a wonderful 3 night stay in June. Marie made us feel really at home. My 3 and 5 year old had great fun picking strawberries in the mornings. Marie is a well of information on child friendly places and activities. We had great weather for the trip but the playroom was still enjoyed. I would definitely recommend to families with children.
I brought my family here over Easter this year and we couldn't of felt more welcome. Marie and her husband were so friendly, helpful and warming.
My kids loved the gardens and the playroom which is a brilliant idea for kids on holidays.
It's very family oriented and would recommend this B&B to any family.
Hope u all enjoy your stay as much as we did.
