This was our favorite B&B of our trip. Everything was excellent! The room was spacious. The bed was comfortable. The bathroom had a jacuzzi tub. Miriam was so sweet. We had a good hearty breakfast. No bad things to say. We will definitely come back to visit.

It baffles me how the old bank thinks of it self as luxury accomadation. Rules are rigidly enforced and not at all logical. We were throw out of the dining area beacuse we were 4 mins early. We stayed thro a weekend, and needed a "wash and brush up" on sunday afternoon, only to find NO HOT WATER available untill... More

Miriam, the owner of The Old Bank B&B, makes you feel welcome every single moment without being intrusive. She gave us some helpful sightseeing advices too. We loved the victorian-style interior of the house and our room. The room faced the backyard and was very quite. The TV was old and very small, but we hadn't had the intention of... More

We spent three days here and were very happy with our stay. Miriam was, without a doubt, the most helpful and accommodating B&B owner we met. Miriam and I exchanged numerous emails prior to our arrival as I had made a booking error (yes Miriam, now you know who's writing this. :-) ) She was enormously helpful and patient with... More

My mother and I stayed at The Old Bank for two nights early in May. Our room was attractive and quiet, even though it faced the street. Breakfasts were excellent -- I was especially pleased to be introduced to pancakes, Irish style, with lemon and sugar. We had no interest in staying in Limerick City, so this location was central...

Agreeing with the other lower ratings... I'm unsure why this B&B is rated so high! The owner was extremely bristly and rude most of the time. Even via email before hand but we brushed it off thinking it was a misunderstanding- it wasn't. She was frazzled as others said, complained most of the time, and generally made us feel very... More

Second time we stayed here. We were travelling around Ireland on motorcycles. A great find. Superbly appointed rooms in a unique 'Old Bank'. Secure parking at rear for the bikes was a must for us.

Miriam was an outstanding host. The inn was beautiful, breakfast delicious, I especially liked the smoked salmon and eggs. The rooms were immaculate and the beds were comfortable, whirlpool tub was the perfect ending to a long days journey. The honor bar in the lobby was very convenient.
