We called to this Hotel during the week for a meal. Lovely food served very professionally by Annie , our very friendly waitress who was extremely welcoming to our family. No problem with parking. Will definitely be back!

I have just check in to the Mayfly Hotel Foxford, so far so good, smiling faces good service nice room, location ideal for a spot of fishing, or take a hike up a mountain or swim in a lake, ideal place to have a base to explore the four corners of mayo.

Called in to this hotel one morning last week with some American friends for breakfast having read the reviews of Annies breakfast. We were not disappointed. It was delicious and we met Annie herself who was charming and a perfect hostess. Couldnt recomment it highly enough.

Good wholesome country food. Everything produced locally. Vegetable straight from the fields and the beef second to none. We'll definitely visit again so please keep up the good work. Excellent service from Anna who couldn't be any kinder. For sure we'll come again.

I had the privilege of staying in this little hotel recently , it has potential to improve in many areas. Its greatest asset is the staff who work there , very friendly and helpful.With some small changes its outdated look could be completely revived. Too many hotels like this one just have the traditional fry on offer in the morning... More

My friend and I set out to find her relatives, who were originally from Foxford. After a stressful drive from Dublin, we stopped at the Mayfly Dining Room. We were warmly greeted and the food was excellent. Guinness great too. We are planning another trip to Foxford and look forward to staying at the lovely Mayflly Hotel.

This is our second visit to the hotel. My wife really appreciate the hospitality of the staff who took so much trouble to go to Balina to get a nightdress for her as a gift, simply because she forgot to pack one for this trip. The food at the restaurant was excellent and the Irish breakfast at Annie's coffee dock... More

We have just spent a week at a Taoist Tai Chi workshop in the delightful town of Foxford. The town was very welcoming and the residents were so friendly. We started each day with Annie's delicious freshly cooked Irish breakfast. Thank you Annie x

We had a wonderful time at the Mayfly for 3 nights in June. Maureen and her staff were amazing. They managed to arrange a dinner for us for 30 on very short notice including singing and an Irish step dancer. The food at the restaurant was fabulous. The breakfasts at Annie's café was delicious. The rooms were clean and, although... More
