Comfortable B&B with very welcoming hosts
Ballard House is a cosy little B&B on the outskirts of Clonakilty. The host was very welcoming and gave great service, including some nice recommendations for what to see on the Wild Atlantic Way. My room was comfortable and breakfast very tasty, the only issue was a lack of shower because of a burst water main - something Anne couldn't appologise more about and did everything she could to mitigate, including giving a discount on the room rate.

The location was lovely and only a short drive to clonakilty. Our host Anne was really lovely, made us feel really at home. A friendly chatty lady which was lovely. Our room was incredible, beautifully decorated with a lovely shower and loads of hot water. Tea and coffee and even little chocolate bars a lovely touch. Breakfast was perfect and she even made us some homemade scones. I would definitely stay here again. Highly tecommend it as a location to visit beautiful clonakilty and surrounds
