Wonderful stay in Ardmore

5 on April 23, 2017

We stayed for 3 nights in April 2017 in Duncrone B&B...it was a wonderful time! The rooms are comfortable, everything is very clean, the breakfast is delicious, the pets are cute, the landscape is beautiful and, last but not least, Jeanette is such a friendly and wonderful host! Thank you for remarkable days!

Wonderful stay - we'll be back!

My family of 4 stayed in the family room almost a week. It was spacious and spotless. We came in one afternoon after visiting the cemetery and we found the owner literally on her hands and knees cleaning our room. I honestly believe she cleaned the room that spotless every day of our stay. Plus the breakfast was to die for. My youngest daughter was tired of eggs and offered to make her "French toast" even though she had never made it before. That was so special and will never be forgotten.

Nice place, nicer people

Stayed 2 nights and can't say enough good things about the place and the people. The breakfasts are exceptional and Jeanette is an exceptional hostess. Ardmore is a small, laid back town. This is a great place to slow down and unwind. When we make it back to Ireland again this will definitely be one of our stops.

Friendly and comfortable

Jeanette was a wonderful host. Her breakfasts were great and she was very friendly. The room was comfortable and Ardmore is a great little town, with a beautiful beach and a great cliff walk that takes you beside St. Declan's Well. You can see the water from Duncrone B&B, though Duncrone is not right on the water. We really enjoyed our stay.

We felt like home!!

We enjoyed our stay at Duncrone, first it is surrounded by an amazing landscape. Janet is an excellent cook, and we had the best breakfast with homemade warm scones and generous food, a big choice. The bedroom is very spacious and very confortable. We had a great time ! I will recommend this B&B very strongly.
