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

We have stayed with Mairead and Tom Dempsey many times and it is always a pleasure.This time it was our first stop after landing at Shannon Airport on the morning of 7/17/15. We were warmly welcomed with tea and delicious scones. Our room was ready and we then headed upstairs for a nap. The room with bathroom en suite was... 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

If you want a B & B where you are immediately part of the family, this is it! Within minutes of our arrival, we were sitting around the kitchen table chatting as if we had known one another for years. Mairead and Tom are warm, welcoming and funny! This is the best bed and breakfast I have ever visited.

We spent 14 glorious days visiting Ireland with a group of friends...and stayed in some fabulous B&Bs as well as some of the finest hotels...but our hands-down favorite was Craig's Country House! From the moment we arrived, we were welcomed, first by the greeting committee of Maggie, Sally and Basel...the resident pups. Mairead and Tom embraced us as family...welcoming us... More
