What a great find, the Old Bank B&B was, the rooms are big, bathrooms huge, beautifully decorated and exceptional breakfasts, but the best thing about this B&B is the host Miriam. She is a real treasure, who makes sure everything about your stay is memorable. Hard to find a better B&B anywhere!

This B & B is great for bedding and breakfasting! My wife and I enjoyed the comfortable and clean room, delicious breakfast and the friendliest of hosts. We highly recommend these accommodations to anyone that is looking for a relaxing, cozy B & B. The hosts recommendations for sightseeing, restaurants and pubs were great.

The Old Bank is nestled among other properties on the main street through Bruff but it's frontage is designed to stand out, especially with the lovely window boxes that Miriam was carefully tending!

Although we only stayed one night we were pleasantly surprised with our accommodations. Our room was quite large and well appointed. Miriam was very clever in the naming of both the B & B and all of the rooms. Breakfast was enjoyable as well.

A gorgeous restored property. Our cozy room was replete with jacuzzi bath and layers of blankets to ward off winter's chill. Bruff is a charming little town, and Miriam's recommendations to spend time at Lough Gur and Bunratty Castle turned out to be pivotal experiences. Enjoy a glass of wine (you can get right next door at the little market)... More
