Beautiful rooms, spacious and well appointed. Mairead and Tom were the perfect hosts. Most of all, we loved Kitty, the heart and soul of the home. Couldn't ask for more in a B&B - everything was extremely well done from the design of the house to the beautiful grounds.

This is a new (less than 10 years old) purpose built B&B out in the horse country of Co Galway. Mairead and Tom are very warm and welcoming innkeepers. Because it is out in the country it is very quiet and peaceful, which is what we enjoy. Yet it is only a 15 minute drive to the train station to... More

I agree with all the other reviews. Mairead and Tom were the perfect hosts. I thought it was because our traveling companions were personal friends of Mairead and Tom but as I read through the other reviews I see we did not get 'special' treatment we got the normal Mairead and Tom treatment. They are truly warm, wonderful and fun... More

If you want to get a good "taste" of Ireland, stay at Craig Country House! Mairead and Tom are wonderful hosts and they represent the real beauty and nature of the Irish people. Add to that an immaculate B&B with beds that embrace you and a delicious breakfast, and you have the five star B&B Craig Country House. If you... More

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
