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. Several pubs and restaurants in walking distance. We especially liked Jack Clancy's... More

The B&B itself is quite good . However perhaps family commitments affect quality. Very late check in, children playing in the car park which has no access after 10pm, hot water for showers only available at certain times. Last breakfast normally 10am but due to a family occasion we were informed that breakfast would not be served after 9.30 am... More

I have stayed here many times on my genealogy trips to this area of Ireland. Miriam is great, the food is wonderful, the service could not be better and it is perfectly located. I should have written this review a year ago. Marsha Thomas

Our stay at the Old Bank was fantastic. The room was gorgeous; exactly as it looked on the web site. The service was great and the breakfast was amazing. We would recommend The Old Bank to anyone looking for a place to stay in the area. Charming and luxurious. Good value for money

Excellent service & very good value. Highly recommend - Look forward to coming back and would definitely book without hesitation. You MUST have the Full Irish Breakfast particularly the White/black pudding. Rooms very clean and comfortable. Well looked after by the owner.
