Brannens is a family run Bed & Breakfast in the center of Newport, Mayo, "The heart of the Greenway cycle track" directly on the Wild Atlantic Way and a haven for walkers.
Brannens is a traditional family run Bar and the home of the Nephin Begers walking club. The stone facade and parts of the interior of the B&B date back to the original build in the early 1700's. The premises has been re-decorated to reflect the Nephin Beg mountain range which overlook the town, in relaxing muted shades of heather and moss. All rooms are en-suite with toiletries which are parabens and mineral oil free, have tea making facilities, hair dryer & flat screen TV with DVD. Our Breakfasts consist of locally produced products, including the family's potato boxty.
We are avid hikers and kayakers and are happy to discuss the area to ensure you get the best out of your holiday.
We are Eco conscious and have solar panels installed for hot water and a water recovery system for flushing toilets. There is a wet room to dry clothes and boots.
