I stayed in the Mustard Seed Hotel with my wife in february 2015 for one night. My first impression of the hotel when i walked in was this was not your run of the mill hotel. As you enter through the main door your in a room with a roaring fire with three couches for people to sit and read... More

Stayed in Echo Lodge on a commute from dublin to cork via limerick. Booked a very good value deal online which included the four course classic menu. I loved the house and gardens, very helpful checkin with John. Nice cosy room with real sheets and blankets. Fantastic meal in the small restaurant. Like having a gourmet meal in your front... More

We spent one evening in the Mustard Seed and it is truly a special place. So special that I would like to keep it a secret, so as it stays a hidden gem. We arrived around 5pm weary after a 3 hour drive, we were met and greeted by the most friendly person I have met in a long time,... More

We spent 2 nights here in October 2014 with our puppy. Dan kindly welcomed, greeted us and offered complimentary refreshments. A lovely fire warmed us as we entered the lounge area. The walk meanders around a beautiful garden, which supplies the hotel with it's own fruit, vegetables and herbs. The first night we dined in the restaurant. The food was... More

We recently stayed at here for New Years Eve and it was fantastic! We arrived early that day and were greeted by Dan who showed us to our room and offered us tea and coffee once we settled in. We were quiet hungry and they offered to make up some open sandwiched for use which tasted great. We relaxed by... More

A huge thank you to Dan and team who made our stay such a lovely experience. We thoroughly enjoyed our time in this beautiful haven. The dinner and breakfast were delicious, the walk around the gardens; a delight and the welcome - unsurpassable. Cannot recommend this little gem enough. Will be spreading the word.

I recently stayed one night at the Mustard Seed with some members of my family for a special occasion. From the time I booked and until we went out the door Dan and his staff were welcoming and provided a great service. Staying here is like what one might imagine a country house party was in the past - roaring... More

I just spent 2 nights at this wonderful country house and it was perfection. You open the door to a huge log fire, and are greeted by Dan or one of his wonderful staff. Its a perfect place to relax, enjoy great food and amazing wines and enjoy a beautiful Irish country house which in some ways takes you back... More

Beautiful older property in parklike setting. We visited for just one night and had dinner in the restaurant. Rooms are varied, clean and comfortable, charming and traditionally furnished. The menu was interesting, the food very good.
