Mairead and Tom made our family feel right at home. Their home was immaculate and comfortable. The beds made for a perfect night sleep. The breakfast was tasty and filling too! The country location made the experience very special! On our way out, Tom took us to see his hunting club. The kids got see all the horses and hounds.... More

We had a wedding in the area and booked Craig House, when I called Mairead kindly offered to drop us over to the hotel after we had checked in. The rooms are fantastic size, I don't think I've ever stayed in a B&B as good!!! Whatever you do, dont leave with out having had Tom's Full Breakfast!!!! Fantastico :)

Thanks to Mairead and Tom for their wonderful hospitality last weekend. I was made so welcome; greeted with tea and homemade scones! The house is a wonderful blend of the traditional and modern; so inviting and comfortable! Definitely one of the best b&bs I've stayed in for some time.

I found this place accidentally while travelling by car with my family, it was the last evening of our trip in Ireland and we were still looking for an accomodation. It's not very easy to get there, but it's worth it! A large, beautiful country house with a court, royal rooms, delicious and huge breakfast and, most of all, lots... More

Friends advised us of this lovely B&B and we could not have been more pleased. My husband is 6'6" tall and the King bed in our room was indeed a true king and very comfortable. Tom and Mairead could not have been more accommodating. I have a deep passion for animals and loved my time with the hounds thanks to... More

We stayed here to attend a wedding in Slieve Aughty - Mairead generously offered to drive us all to the site, which was a considerable distance away and which was greatly appreciated as we'd travelled from Cork and were unfamiliar with the area. The house itself is beautiful, with gracious, comfortable bedrooms, and a lovely sunny breakfast room. The breakfast... More

We spent 2 weeks in Ireland with varying accommodations. The Craig Country House was head and shoulders above the rest. Our host made us feel very welcome and treated us as family. It felt like I was home staying here. I would very highly recommend this as a stop on any visit to Ireland and will definitely stay there on... More
