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.
