I simply loved it. The house is wonderful and charming, quietly situated some 10 minutes (by car) away from Athlone, there is enough parking space in front of the house, and the rooms are cosy and clean, there are even bathroom amenities like small bags of shower gel + shampoo, soap, shower caps and cotton pads. I was travelling with... More

My family of 5 had the pleasure of staying at Ruth's B&B in the beginning of April for one night (I wish it were more!). As stated in most of the reviews, Helen was such a gem and superb hostess. The farmhouse is so charming,with classic old english furniture and beautiful Irish trimmings,very clean and the bedrooms were very comfortable... More

My wife and I had a very enjoyable 1-night stay at St. Ruth's B&B in mid-May, 2014. This is an excellent location for a base accommodation to tour the Trim, Ireland area. The house and grounds are beautifully maintained, and the setting is superb. Our host, Helen, was very friendly, efficient, and very helpful with any of our needs. The... More

What a pleasure it was to stay at St. Ruth's Farmhouse. Helen made us feel so welcome, and the other reviewers were right - her homemade apple pie with cream is delicious. Helen has thought of everything a person might need for a relaxing stay. Her Irish Breakfast was delicious too! She is a wonderful hostess, and we would highly... More

I am kind of a posh snob. (See my home above need I say more). I was all set for a wild St. Pat's weekend, but was too rattled to stay in Dublin after being kept awake all night by drunk Italians next to us ( as the ft desk of our hotel told us upon check out who was... More

Nothing but positives all around here: beautiful home; a warm, genuine, and very competent host; excellent attention to detail; and spacious, well appointed rooms. In no time Helen's welcome made us feel like a member of the family. An amazing experience. I can't thank you enough, Helen-- I'm so very glad to have met you!

We had the luck of the Irish in finding our way to St. Ruth's Farmhouse and it's lovely hostess/owner, Helen. Our accommodations were lovingly decorated, the house and garden delightful,and Helen's homemade rhubarb pie to die for. We hated to say good bye.

We only stayed here for one night but it was absolutely likely. We were greeted by Helen with Apple pie and fresh cream from the farm. The room was lovely and the breakfast was fabulous. Absolutely lovely b&b, we will visit again I'm sure.

We stayed for 1 night only in St. Ruth's Farmhouse and it was the most beautiful B & B on our 2-week trip throug Ireland. Helen is so adorable, charming and we loved the house. It's very clean, authentic, lovely and comfortable. Thanks a lot again. Regards from Switzerland
