The best one
Thx to Eileen and her husband for their warm welcome and great hospitality. We had the best view over the bay and it truly was impressive. The room was comfortable, clean an just beautiful. I felt like a princess in there. Eileen fed us the best breakfast we had on our trip. Yoghurt, home made scones and a variety of local cheese and an excellent coffee. we truly loved it there!

The way it should be done.
Eileen breathes hospitality. The minute she opens the door to you, you know you could only be in Ireland. We had a glass of whiskey together, a chat about food and lovely restaurants, before I toddled off to bed. Her home is as welcoming as she is. You're awaked to an array of choice for breakfast. Beautiful crunchy granola with stunning poached pears, porridge with (more) Irish whiskey, lovely scones, local apple juice, a fine selection of Irish cheeses and whatever else you can find room for. Her selection of food is all locally produced, Irish and seasonal and you can tell she takes pride in it, and in the way she runs her lovely business - and so she should. I'll definitely be recommending this, and if you're thinking of going, I wouldn't think too much. This kind of hospitality is worth its weight in gold. Thanks Eileen.

I will return!
A cup of Earl Grey tea and some home baked cake was my introduction to this warm hearted B&B. Swiftly followed by a lovely chat about Irish literature. In the morning breakfast couldn't have been nicer. Loved trying 5 Irish cheeses
Oh and the view is fabulous.

Lovely, charming room, warm hostess, amazing breakfast
We regret we only had one night to stay. Eileen fed us a breakfast that was the best we had in Ireland. Began with breakfast fool made with home made yogurt, followed by eggs, sausages, bacon, delicious scones, toast, tea with milk, coffee and orange juice. Served with mix and match china and honey, jam, and served with cheerful energy. Our room was on the ground floor, and reminded me of Anne of Green Gables somehow. Very clean, charming and we both slept like a rock. Lovely view of the bay. We got their at dusk without reservation and rather lost. Eileen didn't skip a beat and made us feel welcome. She has the gift of hospitality in her genes.

Everything a B and B should be
My husband and I have just returned from a two night stay in Gortnadiha Lodge. Eileen Harty is the epitome of Irish hospitality, friendly, helpful and interested in her guests.
Her home is comfortable and elegant but very welcoming. Guests eat at a communal dining table in a lovely room which also contains two comfortable sofas with a selection of guide books and information about the locality.
Eileens cooking is excellent and the breakfasts were a delight, the table as beautiful to look at as the food was delicious. Our room was spacious and decorated with flair and attention to detail, with high quality bed linen and towels. The area has lots to offer, beautiful scenery, fine dining, hill walking and lots more.
We will definitely be back to stay at Gortnadiha.

A gem of a find
Not usually a B&B dweller - I found myself with little choice when attending a friends wedding in Dungarvan than to reconsider my past misgivings after luckily stumbling upon Gortnadiha Lodge in County Waterford. Eileen greeted us with such a warm welcome that I couldn't help but be happy walking through the front door into a stylish hallway with a sweeping staircase, inviting even the least curious among us to wonder what elegant bedrooms awaited. Old world charm in the most sophisticated sense best describes the decor with each room treated to its own unique personality. I stayed in the "Chinese Room" with its delicate nod to its title carried out in the most tasteful manner with views stretching out over the ocean. Breakfast was available up to 1130 in the morning and while an Irish breakfast was served to my friends and looked delicious, Eileen prepared 'yummy' granola and yogurt followed by cinnamon porridge to those of us looking for a lighter option. A stunning location if you're looking to get away from it all in style and great value - truly a place to return!

The best place I stayed during 6 weeks in Ireland
I'm just back in New Zealand after an extended visit to Ireland and want to take the time to recommend this lovely B&B, which was simply the nicest accommodation I encountered during my trip. The setting was stunning: peaceful, rural but not too remote, the house itself beautifully appointed and extremely comfortable, the food delicious, and most memorably, the hostess Eileen was kind, warm, gracious, hospitable and very helpful. I cannot speak highly enough of this B&B or of this lovely interesting part of Ireland.
