In early July, we travelled to Limerick to trace our family roots and booked two nights at the Old Bank B&B , only 20 minutes drive from the tiny village we needed to explore. When we arrived, locals were busy decorating the street with bunting for the forthcoming 4th July celebrations.The flags combined with the colourful window boxes gave the... More

Planning to tour the west of Ireland? Then here's a tip - start your holiday with a 40-minute drive south of Shannon airport to the little town of Bruff, where the brightness of the colour-washed houses matches the warmth of the locals. And, in the centre of Main Street you'll find the Old Bank - distinctive by the lushness of... More

My husband and I only booked for one night to attend an event taking place locally. We arrived in the village early and ambled around before we checked in. The front of the building stands out from the others and has character. Miriam was watering the beautiful window boxes as we walked by. As we were early, we said we'd... More

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.

This was the best B&B I ever had to pleasure to stay in. Rooms were large, exquisitely decorated, recently renovated, very clean, well furbished, quiet, warm and comfortable. Bathrooms were also clean, new and large. Rooms look even better than their photos. They have off street parking, which makes life easy. Breakfast was awesome. One could go there just for... More

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.
