Staying at the Anglers Return

While staying with us, we really do everything possible to make your visit peaceful and relaxing. The guest house has been in the family for over 60 years – where your host, Lynn Hill will see to it you have everything you need to fully enjoy one of the oldest and longest-running guesthouses in one of the most picturesque regions in Ireland.


There are five mid-size bedrooms, two of which are double ensuite. Three rooms share one large bathroom/shower comprising:

1 Treble room (large 6' double bed plus one single bed)
1 Twin bedded room
1 Double bedroom

They are all individually and tastefully decorated with ultra-comfortable beds and crisp cotton sheets. They all have their own wash-basins with excellent spring-well drinking water, rooms are calm and quiet, and all very close to the large bathroom.

There are no televisions – only glorious views over the river and gardens.

Now Offering Woodland Garden Camping!

Unique and rustic yet cosy and peaceful is the best way to describe this lovely woodland garden experience.

Sitting in a high corner of the tumbling garden, looking down over the veg patch and the twining terraces sits our new lovely, large 4m Bell Tent. .Inside the fairy lights wind throughout the tent, fitted carpets add warmth and comfort, and two airbeds, bedrolls and fresh pillows are provided. (Please bring your own sleeping bags)

In a little separate kitchen shed, there are gas hobs for cooking, with pots and pans etc. There is a tented private chemical loo, and mains power for the occasional creature comfort like lights, a kettle or an electric blanket, but the emphasis is soundly on the simple life. Hop over the back fence into great hiking country, or try a little fishing or explore up the coast and find a deserted beach.

Set among the 10-acre woodland garden – all by itself – this private camping retreat offers an experience like no other. Spacious 4 metre Bell Tent design accommodates 2 or 3 adults comfortably.

Please enquire for details and reservation requests

Bank Holidays

1st Monday in May
1st Monday in June
1st Monday in August (the busiest)

It should be noted that 3 summer season Bank Holiday Weekends take place in Ireland, and this can be an extremely busy time, as the Irish people move around the country for their long weekend holiday! It is recommended that visitors from abroad ensure they have secure reservations at that time, and perhaps 'stay put' in accomodations of their choice!
