First I want to mention that we never had such a breathtaking view out of our room. The room itself was O.K.
Our room was in the lower part of the building, that was a little bit strange because the colour leaves the walls in big pieces and the corridors down here are a bit narrow and partially dark.
The staff was very friendly, the breakfast was disappointing.
There are big mouse- or rat traps round the house.
It is a wonderful house which deserves more care.SSSSS

This inn is fabulous--for the incredible view, yes, but also the people who work here are so kind and generous. Sheila, a chef here who makes a wonderful carrot cake, saw we were late for a tour the operator had changed the time and she personally drove us down to the dock. When my friend was bitten by a dog along the Kerry Way watch out for the border collie that guards the big farm with cows, sheep, and chickens just before you reach Carherdaniel! one of the waitresses arranged for us to ride to Cork in a tour bus. They were just so helpful. Ireland is famous for its hospitality but these folks are above and beyond.SSSSS

The room was very nice and had a magnificent view. We stayed there in September and the restaurant closed at 4pm. We were lucky to be there before since there is no reception and nobody to give you the key if you arrive later. Unfortunately, nobody informed us in advance. Thus, there were two guests arriving later who had trouble to check in. There was also no emergency number or contact details in case you need assistance after closure of the restaurant. SSSSS

Positives - great views and nice food.
Negatives - sullen staff, old fashioned decor with a horrible smell in corridor outside bedrooms. No kettle or tea in room. Room dirty. Hairs in bed and bathroom. Stains on bedding. Desperately needs refurbishing. Such a shame as people would travel far for the spectacular views. Needs Alex polizzi to give the owners some advice. SSSSS

My experience with B&B is fairly limited, but this one easily fit all our expectations. Even after showing up an hour later due to road conditions, the lady who checked us in was still very gracious. The rooms were in good condition with small, but clean bathrooms. The view the following morning was amazing with a filling and tasty breakfast to match. If you do stay here, make sure you get directions ahead of time or do what we did and ask a local. Also make sure to take some time to go hiking. The area is lovely!SSSSS

The room was very nice and clean. The view from the room was fantastic. However, I would have expected more from the breakfast, for it was not prepared with a lot of care, and the variety of available food was rather limited. The staff was friendly but seemed a little distressed. SSSSS

Our stay at the Scariff Inn B&B was short but sweet. The reception staff was kind enough to wait for us on our long trip from Cliffs of Moher down to the inn. We didn't think it would take as long as it did, and we got there after dark, but they thankfully waited for us.
Otherwise, it was a great stay and met all of our needs.SSSSS

We had a brilliant stay at your lovely B&B, the staff couldn't have done more to make us welcome, would highly recommend you to anyone. The views are beautiful, thank you. We will be back at some time in the future xSSSSS
