We stayed at Dockside Guest House from the 16th to 22nd December 2019 and have nothing but praise for the establishment. The owners, Des and Pat are very friendly and accommodating. You feel safe and nothing is too much trouble. Pat has extensive knowledge of the area and pointed us in the right direction to experience the local sights and enjoy the local cuisine. The rooms are very clean and serviced daily and most of all everything works.We will definitely stay there again.

The view was spectacular, the room was spacious and beautiful with a lovely bathroom. Only thing that bothered me was the fact I could not use the bathtub as well as not having a microwave in the room.
