Christopher and Helen were extremely welcoming and took the time to show us around their picturesque and beautifully maintained farm. We had a great night's sleep in perfect peace and quiet. We have travelled a lot in Ireland and abroad and this was one of the most enjoyable and unique experiences we've ever had.

We stayed at Lough Bishop on our way back to Dublin Airport after travelling in Galway and Connemara. I chose the farm particularly for the horses and wasn't disappointed as Helen is obviously a serious breeder and was kind enough to show us her 4 lovely Irish Draft mares. The many certificates she has won line the walls , as... More

I can not praise Lough Bishop House enough - its a wonderful escape from the city and delightful to wake up in a unique farmhouse to the taste of Helen's breakfast. The food is organic and healthy but delicious. Helen & Christopher are charming and gentle hosts who give you as much attention as you need without ever being intrusive.... More

My wife and I spent 2 weeks in Ireland, and had a great time. Without question, the best stop during our trip was Lough Bishop House. A quick drive from Dublin brought us to a beautiful secluded farm in a part of the country that is neglected by most tourists. Helen & Christopher spent too much of their busy day... More

My Dad and I stayed for two nights researching family history in the area. Not only was Lough Bishop House a beautiful, luxurious and welcoming place to stay, but Christopher and Helen went out of their way to help us with our research. They made enquiries on our behalf, recommended places to visit and people to speak to, and generally... More

What a beautiful place hosted by two very nice, friendly people. Helen and Christopher take great pride in their home and it shows. I am so happy they have decided to share it with everyone in the form of a B&B. We arrived late in the year and Helen had a fire going with tea and a nosh. From our... More

We arrived at Lough Bishop House on Easter afternoon. It was the perfect location for our first two nights in Ireland after flying into Dublin. It was only a short drive from Dublin and a world apart. The bucolic rural setting was postcard perfection. The Irish horses grazing, one with a new foal, the rare Irish cattle looking up at... More

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Built in the early 19th Century, Lough Bishop is a charming Country House nestling peacefully into a south-facing slope overlooking Bishop's Lough in County Westmeath, Ireland. Lough Bishop provides unique Country House Bed & Breakfast Accommodation owing to its wonderful location in the middle of a working organic farm. Breathtaking scenery in an unspoilt and tranquil setting, amid the rolling farmlands and lakes of Westmeath make Lough Bishop an ideal refuge from the hustle and bustle of modern life. There are family dogs in the background and animals play a large part of life at Lough Bishop House. Following extensive renovation this attractive Georgian Country Farmhouse offers its guests luxurious bed and breakfast accommodations, peaceful surroundings and fine food much of which comes from our own farm, garden and orchard. ... more   less
