LOVELY room with all amenities, Shelia and Brian were great host, Shelia's bubbly personality was infectious, arranged/ suggested tours i.e. escorted tour of the Bawnboy Workhouse, and many other local hard to find attractions. Breakfast and bar meal excellent. Sad to leave,, suggested next location was spot on, another excellent, but different part/ landscape of this beautiful country

The b&b was very quiet when we stayed there but having arrived rather late, we enjoyed some drinks in the bar (which is below the inn) and played darts before heading to sleep. The bed and pillows were so comfy and it was probably the best sleep I had during my entire trip to Ireland. The breakfast was amazing and... More

We stayed for 2 nights and we were impressed. The room were very clean and comfortable and the breakfast was excellent. The Bar was very welcoming and friendly and the home cooked meals were fantastic. Sheila was a brilliant hostess which made our stay very relaxed after a hard days work.

Small and perfectly formed. Top marks for customer service and comfort. Website did indicate that accommodation was full but when I phoned there was availability so don't miss staying at this little gem for the sake of phone call. First evening we were late getting back and literally ordered food at minute to end of service but no prob. Breakfast... More

Showed up very late after along day tracing my husband's ancestors in nearby Swanlinbar. Brian welcomed us in and when he found out we had not eaten, he opened the kitchen and cooked for us even though it had been closed for over an hour. He sent us to our room to freshen up after taken out meal order, and... More

Just returned from a short stay in The Keepers Arms. Try as I might I cannot think of one bad thing to say about it. Its great from the start as the accomodation is situated over a public bar! Sheila's homecooking is to behold. Breakfast is excellent followed later in the day by an equally gratifying food experience as an... More

Having just returned home after another great week with Brain and Sheila, again we were treated like one of their family, all that mouth watering delicious home cooked food, and the hospitality is second to none. The rooms are clean, well thought out and all en suite, and the beds are so roomy and comfortable. No request is any trouble.... More

Spent a week fishing in and around Bawnboy the weather and fishing was crap but staying at the Keepers arms made up for the bad weather. Sheila and Brian really looked after us there is a walk in fridge for the bait and a place to dry clothing and kit. Have got to recommend Sheila's Irish Stake with mushroom stir... More

We had a fabulous time at The Keepers Arms. The rooms were all en suite and the staff was fantastic. A super hearty breakfast was included and started off each day perfectly. Sheila went out of her way to make us feel at home, and w/2 kids, that's a tall order. She even let us use a baby monitor so... More
