Very welcoming and although she apologised for a minimal breakfast it turned out to be just great! Nice bread, juice, toaster, coffee/tea, a neighbours home-made jam as I recall, cereal.

Our stay at Karen and Antonios place was great. We wanted a place to crash for a night before heading to the airport early that was also in an interesting town, and we got exactly that! We definitely recommend staying here and grabbing dinner along the boardwalk.

Karen and Antonio are exceptional hosts. I stayed much longer than the average bnb-er, and so I was fortunate to develop a close friendship with both them; going out for food and drinks, having long talks, and exchanging videos and such on the internet. I know many people are not necessarily looking for this kind of connection. But Karen and Antonio are genuinely warm people, and I consider myself very lucky to have stayed with them. As for the area, their home is walking distance to all the nightlife and cafés around. It's right on the tip of the peninsula, so there's beach and water on all sides. The food is great everywhere, and not TOO pricey. It's a really beautiful place filled with good, caring, friendly people. I hope to return some day.

It was very cool to meet you Nicholas. We really hope you come back to visit as a friend in the future. Best of luck with your studies in The Burren, it's a very special place.

We had a lovely stay at Karen's place. She gave us really nice tips and suggestions what we could do in the neighborhood and she was always willing to help us when we had questions. You can stroll on the beach and it was a perfect place for walking. It is kind of a village with small shops and restaurants, it's all very cozy. And it is a perfect place to make room for thoughts and for relaxation and to enjoy the beautiful nature.
