We loved everything about our stay at Craig Country House. My husband and I were traveling with my sister and brother-in-law for a couple of weeks, and we all agreed that this was exceptional. The house is new, clean and attractive. The rooms downstairs are filled with gorgeous antiques -- most with interesting stories attached to them. Our bedroom upstairs... More

Wonderful home in a great country setting. Tom and Mairead are great hosts and became friends by the time we left. Tom is the Master of the Hunt and conducts over 100 days of hunting each year. He treated us to a tour of his hunt facilities including the hounds and horses. We enjoyed dinner at the local pub -... More

When my husband and I arrived at Craig Country House we were warmly greeted and sadly told that they had a huge storm during the day and the power was out. Mairead called all of the local hotels to see if they had power and a room available for the night while we had tea with her family and then... More

This is a lovely B&B and the host family are delightful, warm, and friendly and very personable. On the day of our arrival, Mairead made us tea and we sat at their kitchen table and chatted with our hosts and family memvers. They are very welcoming and are deserving of a their high rating, most assuredly. We loved their sweet... More

If you are looking for good honest traditional hospitality this is the place. We took two rooms for a family of 2 adults and 3 children and within minutes it was as if the place was our own. Tom made us afternoon tea on arrival and Mairead packed a picnic for us for the next day. I couldn't find fault... More

It isn't hard to see why others give this B &B a wonderful rating also! Tom (who did most of our cooking that week) was just great and Mairead -who was very busy at the time -also was a wonderful hostess-even sat in our room one evening after her long day to ask us about ours! And the dogs-my friends... More

This was the best of the B & B's we stayed at during our self tour of Ireland. Mairead & Tom made us feel like part of their family. Due to our delayed flight we had to cancel our first night out of 3, and added another day at the end of our two weeks, it was not even an... More

We unfortunately had only one night in the Loughrea area, but we had a terrific stay just the same. Mairead and Tom are very gracious hosts and despite our late arrival made us feel most welcome. Our room and bath were spacious and very clean and comfortable, with lovely linens and decor. Tom prepared a very generous and delicious breakfast... More

This B&B is really a gem (and I'm not saying this often). After our trip to Bunratty, the Cliffs of Moher and the Burren we arrived at Craig Country House where we were welcomed very warmly by Mairead and Tom. We felt at home immediately drinking hot chocolate in the kitchen together with our hosts. The bedrooms are all great... More
