Niamh was a wonderful host who insisted on dropping us up to the function in the hotel. Very much appreciated. All this and a super leisurely breakfast. Will definitely... More

This B&B was our first over-night stay out of Dublin back in mid-October. The location had a definite "rural" flavor and was easy to find. Accommodations, as well as breakfast, were outstanding. Our hosts (Ronan & Niamh) were extremely helpful in guiding us to The Locke Restaurant in Athlone where we experienced an exceptional dinner. My wife and I would... More

Great B&B - actually, the best we have visited during our road trip through Ireland. The rooms are very clean and beautifully furnished. The hospitality of the owners is unmatched. Breakfast was also the best we had during our Ireland trip. Our little son enjoyed the playground in the garden very much. The B&B is definitely recommended.

It is evident that the owners thought of everything to make the guests feel welcome. Great Irish breakfast. Niamh the owner was a gracious hostess. A five star gem!
