The Garden Gates B & B
Ranked #5 of 17 Castlebar B&B and Inns
Reviewed 4 August 2017

A beautiful house in beautiful grounds. A lovely warm welcome from Martina and Larry and of course Honey the bloodhound (who is outside). The rooms are clean and soooo comfortable. I had the best nights sleep in the wonderfully large bed. The breakfasts are great, lots of choice should you stray from the full Irish and homemade jams and cake all served with warmth and great humour. We have become fast friends with them both and feel like we are coming home when we visit. So relaxed we didn't want to leave. Oh and a great base to explore Mayo.

Room Tip: check the website for pictures as all have a theme e.g. Rose is decorated in red. All are good.

Nice clean rooms with modern en suite and comfortable beds, generous tasty breakfast, calm and beautiful location, friendly host, easy parking - what's not to like? Definitely a good option well worth a detour.

The location is in a peaceful and quiet area, that had a welcome feeling when you opened the front door. The rooms were very clean and extremely comfortable. Our hosts were helpful, friendly, and caring but still gave us enough space so they weren't intrusive. Just a nice relaxed setting that welcomes you. Breakfast was very good and I would stay with them again when in the area. We had a beautiful sunny day to the mountain.

I stayed in The Garden Gates recently, and I can honestly say it is the best B&B I have stayed in to date.

The beautiful house is situated halfway between Westport and Castlebar, and only a short drive to either town. There is a lovely driveway leading up to the house, with beautiful trees outside the house. My room (named 'Rose') was huge with a King Size bed, and was beautifully decorated in rose and red tones. The bathroom was also large and well stocked with shampoo, shower gel, towels, face cloths etc. There were tea and coffee making facilities, and two slices of home made cake waiting for me in the room on arrival. Breakfast can be pre-ordered and there was a large range of choices available. I had fruit salad and yoghurt, then scrambled egg and smoked salmon, which was delicious.

This B&B is as good as any hotel in the area, with the added benefit of Martina's friendliness and hospitality. I can highly recommend it, and will definitely stay here if I am visiting Castlebar again.
