We stayed in Brannens in Newport while attending a wedding in Westport as it was only a short drive away. Clare was a fantastic host and very quick to respond to any queries. The room was spotless and very comfortable. Full Irish breakfast the following morning was delicious, all in all we had a great stay.

Superb b&b with spacious and clean rooms. The location is right in the middle of Newport, with parking outside and the bike hire less than a minute walk away. The staff were welcoming, friendly and provided a great breakfast each morning.

Short note to say thank you very much for the genuine and sincere mayo hospitality that you showed us over the last couple of days. It was the perfect balance of sharing local knowledge without being overbearing. We will be recommending both Brennan's and Newport town as a great base for exploring Mayo.

Very central location - with fine dining and pub food options within shouting distance (check Grainne Uaile's pub for great food and value). Room was spacious and spotlessly clean. And the whiskey on the pub was superb!

This is a really great place to stay. Our room was very comfortable overlooking the main street. Breakfast was excellent in the restaurant overlooking the old walled garden. Keen hillwalkers, Clare and John are full of local knowledge sending us to places that we might otherwise have missed. Highly recommended.

Fantastic location in the middle of the main street. Claire was a lovely host. The bed was excellent as was the bed linen. The breakfast was lovely. breakfast is served in their bar function room, which is quite a modern and somewhat unusual space, but we really enjoyed it, lots of space and light. We would definitely recommend it.
