Located adjacent to an old castle that the host can trace back many generations in his family, this B&B is beautifully decorated. The room we had was large and particularly comfortable with a very modern bathroom. The hosts, Pierce and Joan, were so friendly and helpful. It was a pleasure meeting them. The breakfast was one of the best we... More

Stayed with Joan and Pierce our first two nights in Ireland and it does not get any better. The facility was clean, comfortable, with great breakfast and two of the most knowledgeable and hospitable hosts in all of Ireland.

I have stayed in many hotels and guesthouses throughout the world over the years and I have to say that this is the best bar none. Could not fault it in any way. The peace and tranquility of the surroundings, the cleanliness, spaciousness, and luxury of the interior, the fantastic meals, and above all, the friendliness, helpfulness and hospitality of... More

This is the best B&B I have ever stayed at and better than many hotels. The rooms are huge and kitted out with fridge, hairdryer, complimentary shower/shampoo, plenty of towels, Sky TV, thermostat and all the floors are carpeted (but still immaculately clean), including the upstairs hallways. There was even a mechanised shoe polisher in the landing. Behind the building,... More

This is the best version of a bed and breakfast I have seen in a long time. We stayed here for two nights and then extended for a third. Pierce and Joanne, the hosts, welcomed us like guests of the family. The house feels very much like a home, the rooms are impeccable, spacious and elegant. Our was equipped with... More

This house, parts of which date back over 300 years is architecturally a bit of an oddity but as a B&B, I don't know that I've been to better. My room was the smallest in the house but would still be big enough for to sleep three in comfort in a double and a single. Spotlessly clean with all the... More

I was traveling Ireland solo and this was an incredible stay. The host set me up in spacious, comfortable, classy, elegant room. The hosts were beyond gracious and had wonderful tips on places to visit while I stayed. I made wonderful connections and felt truly at home. Anytime I return to Ireland, I will stay here. Beautiful setting and delicious... More
