Perfect hosts!! The rooms are all very cosy and furnitured with much taste and love. Exquisite and typical breakfast. The host - Miriam - is extremely friendly and you are soon on friendly terms with her. Down in the library, it's lovely to chat beside the fireplace in the evening. This B&B can be highly recommended when you come and... More

This is a wonderful comfortable Bed & Breakfast faculty. Very comfortable bed, bathroom, dining room and breakfast.. The proprietor was a bright, bubbly, welcoming Irish young lady. There is a car park at the rear of the hotel although we parked outside the hotel on the rad. Buff is an old town _ I had come because my mother was... More

My husband and I stayed at this B&B on our way from Donegal to Dublin. Bruff is a quaint small town outside Limerick. We specifically chose Old Bank as they advertised gluten free foods. The menu was the best we had tried in all of Ireland and Northern Ireland. Miriam was a wonderful chef and host and checked us in... More

Friendly, helpful, clean, great breakfast... In Ireland for business so added a couple days so my wife and I could try to trace some of her family tree in Co. Limerick. Found out about The Old Bank B&B via "Back Roads Ireland" (great travel guide from Eyewitness Travel), then checked it out on TripAdvisor. If you enjoy being in a... More

My husband and I stayed at this B&B on our way to Dingle. Bruff is a nice small town outside Limerick. Miriam was a wonderful host and checked us in early. She told us all of the interesting sites in the area and made sure that we didn't miss any of the exciting places to visit along our way. I... More

I don't usually take the time to post reviews but for those looking for a great town to settle into for a day or more in Limerick County, Bruff has all the charm and hospitality one could ask for. I visit Ireland 3 or 4 times a year and although Limerick City is a bit more central to what I... More

We only visited this B&B for one night, it was a lovely place. It had off street parking. The owner was lovely. She was not available when we arrived and the girl left in charge did not have very good English so there wS a little problem with communication. Also they prefer to be paid in cash which wasn't a...

Don't be put off by the self pitying tone of the person who wrote such a negative review. Take into consideration that it's the only bad one you're likely to find and some people are impossible to please! We stayed at The Old Bank for four nights and have nothing but positive things to report. Not only was the room... More
