Stayed here last night. After a week on the road staying in various b&b's I found this place refreshing compared to the rest I have stayed in. Room was lovely, breakfast was great and the owner was accommodating. Would stay here again if I am to be in the area again.

Great place to stay. Easily accessible from Shannon airport. Fantastic welcome from the helpful landlady, lovely room and a great breakfast. Bruff is small, but we had a lovely meal out. Lough Gur is a beautiful spot, and we had a great chat with Tim at the Great Stone Circle.Thoroughly recommended.

Lovely B&B, as good as any hotel. Very friendly service, with plenty of attention to detail. Rooms are spacious and very clean, with large ensuite bathrooms. Nice touches include coffee and cake provided on arrival! Excellent breakfast menu offered. Will certainly stay again when in Limerick.

I stayed in this establishment 11 months ago and stayed here again as part of my 'pilgrimage' to my 'genetic' home. As per last time the welcome was great and the facilities every bit as good as before. Congratulations to Miriam for running a wonderful home away from home
