Hilltop B&B is located on the Loophead Peninsula – winner of the Responsible Tourism 2015 Best Place to Holiday – and is also on the Wild Atlantic Way scenic drive. The B & B has one of the best views on the Loop Head Peninsula, overlooking the Atlantic Ocean to the west and the Shannon River to the south. From here you enjoy easy access to the fishing villages of Carrigaholt and Kilbaha, while the sea-side town of Kilkee, with its beautiful sandy beach and the spectacular cliff scenery, is close by.
Run by Teresa, who prides herself on customer satisfaction and good reviews, Hilltop has 3 standard and en suite guest rooms – providing quiet and comfortable accommodation for single travellers as well as couples and for families.
Guest facilities include TVs in the guest bedrooms and in the lounge, free WiFi, free secure parking, as well as coffee- and tea-making facilities. Packed lunches and sandwiches are also available. Available in-house for guests to play as part of a music session are musical instruments – including concertina, piano accordion, concert flutes and whistles. There are traditional Ceol Cois Tine sessions available locally in bars.
The B&B is convenient for dolphin watching, angling, seafood restaurants and scenic walks on the peninsula. It’s worth noting that when you stay at Hilltop, you are entitled to discounted prices at The Long Way Round Walking Co, based in Carrigaholt – giving you access to areas of beauty which are otherwise closed-off to visitors.
