Kincora House

Top choice b&b in Killaloe & Ballina

Just uphill from the cathedral in the heart of Killaloe, this lemon-yellow townhouse was once a pub/general store. Many original features have been retained, while historic black-and-white photos of Clare decorate the walls. There are four traditional rooms in the main house; out the back its stylish, contemporary self-catering cottage (minimum three-night stay; cleaning fee €30) sleeps five people.
