It may seem a little of the beaten track, but it is well worth the visit. Christopher and Helen Kelly will look after you very well. The setting is idyllic with beautiful farmland and the sounds of the Irish countryside seeping in through your open window... perhaps the rooster is the exception but that is ok . We had dinner...

This was the best B&B on our entire Ireland trip. Helen and Christopher are super friendly hosts. They made a wonderful home out of the old farmhouse and proudly showed us their farm with the horses, cattle, sheep, chicken and dogs. The room was very nice and the bed was comfortable, even for a man of 1,96 m height. Breakfast... More

This is the best place we stayed in Ireland on a fairly extensive trip. The house is beautifully restored (by the owners) and well decorated and cared for. Very comfortable and well equipped. The farm is terrific with a moderate flock of sheep (suffolks, mixed breeds), horses and cows -- but you don't have to love sheep etc. to stay... More

This beautiful old farmhouse has been lovingly restored by the owners, Christopher & Helen, who greeted us warmly with tea and cake on arrival. Our rooms were large, nicely decorated and very comfortable - ours overlooked the front of the house with views of sheep and cows in the fields, while our niece's well-sized single overlooked the farmyard. Christopher &... More

We stayed there 2 nights for both business trip to Athlone and to experience an undiscovered region of Ireland -in a touristic point of view, of course, as Helen put it when we arrived. Helen and Christopher are wonderful hosts and make you feel at home -tea and brownies, logs burning in the fireplace, and even an unexpected very nice... More

Lough Bishop House is a secluded, bucolic idyl. The livestock operation is run by the hosts, Christopher and Helen Kelly. They are articulate about their beloved horses, sheep and their unforgettable Derrynagara cows and love sharing their experience and knowledge. The farm and its surrounding countryside is breathtakingly beautiful and there are many opportunities for leisurely walks along the long... More

We began our three week excursion to Ireland/Scotland/England with two nights at Lough Bishop House. This set a high standard for all stays to follow, none of which matched the warm hospitality and lovely accommodations we had at Lough Bishop. Helen and Christopher went above and beyond to insure that we were comfortable, even given their busy days on this... More

A bit of a mixed feeling on this B&B, we wanted to stay on our way back from the coast on a farm in this region and decided to book Lough Bishop house based on the excellent TA reviews. We got a warm welcome with coffee and cake and had a nice chat with both of them, Helen was kind... More

Helen and Christopher offered us a warm welcome in to their beautifully restored farmhouse. We stayed for just one night, on our way back to Dublin from the northwest coast of Ireland. We were immediately welcomed with tea and cake in their lounge before being shown to our room, which overlooked the local scenary and garden. Breakfast was superb -... More
