“This was so fun!  Our family enjoyed staying in the double decker bus...plenty of room for all of us.  The bathrooms were nearby and clean.  We stayed one night and loved being so close to the Skelig Michael boat tour for our morning departure.”

“We stayed two nights in the boat house and it was great! The room and the facilities (shared kitchen, showers and toilets) were spotlessly clean and very nicely decorated. Would stay again!”
