  • Amazing sea views

  • The lady of the house was waiting for us when we arrived from a very late flight. We were made to feel welcome and comfortable immediately. The atmosphere was very relaxing. Highly recommended.

  • Lovely Stay

  • The location was amazing — so close to the Irish Sea. The staff was very kind and went above and beyond. They even made ice cream for my kids for breakfast.

  • Welcoming place to stay

  • A lovely homely guest house, with great facilities, set facing a beautiful beach with miles of golden sands. Geraldine was a most welcoming hostess, and even got a breakfast-to-go made up for us as our early departure time meant we would miss her famous irish fry. Great wee restaurant down the road too, The Cottage Inn, with the best chicken cacciatore we have ever tasted!!

  • Wonderful, warm, friendly B&B. Would highly recommend!

  • The personal service of the staff was amazing. There was never anything too much for them to do for you. Breakfast was a feast that lasted you the whole day! They were always asking if everything was alright and if there was anything they could do for you to make your stay more enjoyable. Nothing was too much to ask for. ********************************************************************************* They were the friendliest and most helpful B&B I've ever encountered. ********************************************************************************* I had an issue with my neighbours (not the B&B's fault) and they promptly moved us and made sure we were happy and comfortable. The owners are so sweet, kind, considerate and genuinely lovely people. You felt as if you were staying at an old friends home. The view and location is beautiful too. The calm Irish Sea was welcoming and relaxing and we often saw people riding horses on the beach in the morning. The breakfast room was warm and sunny with a lovely vista of the sea. Our room/s had a beautiful view of the ocean. The owners also have a corner shop adjoining the property so you have everything you need at your doorstep. It's a great location to go travelling to Dublin and the Boyne valley where there are loads of historical sites and places to visit. ***Overall, Great Location, Great Service, Great Experience!***

  • The weather at times – but that's Ireland for you! It was mostly quite beautiful albeit a little drizzly at times.

  • " A home away from home" Superb!!!

  • Just back to Belgium from my fantastic 2 night stay at Tara House in the beautiful Laytown. We never stayed anywhere before where myself and my children were made to feel so welcome- we were treated like family! Geraldine and Lyn were the perfect hosts, so friendly, so accommodating, they couldnt do enough for us. Our double room was amazing, so spacious with a large tv, a double bed and also a single bed which were both so comfy that we had a great night’s sleep. Our room was spotless clean and the sheets and pillows were so soft. We had plenty of storage and a large bathroom with a bath and shower. We also had a kettle in the room to make tea and coffee which delighted me 🙂 Tara House is directly facing the beautiful ocean with breathtaking views of the Mourne mountains, you could not ask for more. The breakfast was scrumptious! We had a full Irish on both mornings and Geraldine and Lyn were the perfect hostesses making sure we had everything we needed.We decided to get a take away Chinese on our second evening and Geraldine set up the breakfast room for us so we could dine there, it was lovely. We already made plans to come back in two weeks time and also for a week at Christmas. I highly recommend Tara House, it really and truly is a home from home! You;ll love it!! 🙂 Thank you Geraldine and Lyn for making us feel so welcome (and for our big hug goodbye) see you soon ladies 🙂 xx

  • was perfect!!

“Made us feel welcome and part of the family”

2 days agoReviewed by benjoyw

We traveled to Ireland from Madrid with my wife’s parents. They had not been out of south Africa in many years and this was a chance to reunite with family. We had not anticipated staying in a place that made us feel at home. It was a great comfort to the elderly couple and made the trip special. I have stayed in many places over the years but have never experienced such a warm and genuine caring and attention to detail. It was like coming home.

Scott, (GB)

  • Lovely place to stay

  • Incredibly friendly staff, hotel located right by the seafront and excellent location for visiting the scenic local area and only 30 odd minutes from Dublin. Very cosy, almost like a home away from home. Only wish we could've stayed longer!

  • Above and beyond expectations

  • The host was amazing. She was incredibly welcoming and lovely to us, even though we arrived very late and very soggy. The house was lovely and housed all sorts of interesting artwork and objects, and the rooms were comfortable and pretty well sized as well. We did not get to try breakfast, since we left early to make our flight, but I’m sure it would have been lovely. In addition, the view from the front is straight out onto the beach, which was lovely in the morning. I wish we  had more time to enjoy the location, but it was only a quick stopover for us before we left the country. We will definitely stay there again, and plan to spend a little more time!

Patrick, (US)

  • Had a great experience at Tara House!

  • Our hosts were wonderful – really felt cared for and really enjoyed their demeanor. Loved the location – beautiful to look out on the beach. They offered us the dining area to eat our takeout our first night, and took care of our dishes. Great pubs around and a grocery makes it ideal to get what you need. They handled each request with ease. I never felt like a burden. A really great place to relax and close enough to Dublin to have the best of the city and the beach! I would go back in a heartbeat

  • Le meilleur B&B trouvé dans notre séjour

  • La perfection dans le genre B&B, au bord de la plage, restaurants sympas autour ( pub dans la chambre , c’est pratique ) pas loin de Dublin et surtout si vous avez notre chambre en tous cas vue absolument géniale sur la plage, la mer et la baie…tout ça avec un accueil d’une mamie à croquer comme on en voudrait tous
