We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at this B&B. We had a large room with a canopy bed, a sitting area and some nice antiques. The main sitting room was great as well with views over the farm and down to the river. We took a short walk around the grounds and met Sonny and Cher their 2 "pet" donkeys -... More

We stayed at Lough Owel Lodge for two nights as we visited County Westmeath, exploring the region that my husband's family came from. Aideen, her daughter Maive and husband Martin, were amazing hosts. Aideen arranged for a genealogist to do some research for us and Martin gave us some great tips on where to look and who to talk to... More

We toured Ireland for just under two weeks, staying at bed & breakfast spots throughout the country. Lough Owel Lodge was wonderful - the owners were friendly and helpful and very hospitable (especially since we checked in late). We had hoped it would be close enough to walk into city center but it certainly required a drive - especially the... More

From the welcome to the parting the friendliness was outstanding. The landlady was excellent. Lots of home cooking, from the welcome scones and jam to breakfast with freshly made pancakes and/or bread.Her advice on the area was also very helpful. Rooms were as good as a 3 star hotel.
