Really not sure how much I need to write - beyond the fact that I'd not hesitate to return! Bobbie is a very gracious host and rather good on the cooking front too!! From the tea and cake served on our arrival to the breakfast before our departure (not to mention the five course meal the night before), I enjoyed... More

we stayed here for a week-end and had a warm welcome from Bobbie, the owner, with the offer of tea after our journey. its a very peaceful house with the just the sound of the grandfather clock in the background! the rooms are large and beds very comfortable with access to a lovely drawing room. Breakfast is splendid at the... More

The warm welcome Bobbie extends her guests is like none that we've experienced. After being slightly overwhelmed by the stately house, beautiful grounds, and our four-poster bed in our huge room, we were invited to have afternoon tea and home made goodies by the fire in her lovely sitting room. My wife preferred an herbal tea, and Bobbie had a... More

Oh wow! I remember driving up the drive and seeing this wonderful house and wondering if we had actually come to the right place. Thankfully, it was the right place. Parking up in the gravel car park and being greeted by Bobbie made an impression that this stay would be a rather pleasant one. In true 19th century country house... More

You know that you have reached home when the hostess greets you at the door with a big sincere bright smile and hug that says, welcome back. We found this amazing Bed and Breakfast two years ago and we promised then that we would find a way to return. We were lucky again to travel back to Ireland and our... More

I'm only reading reviews of this B&B after having spent the weekend there by chance & couldn't agree more with all of it's excellent reviews. Not only is the house really beautiful & the food fantastic but Bobbi herself is what makes this place unbeatable. I couldn't recommend it highly enough & can't wait to get back down there!

We had a wonderful one-night stay in Lorum last month. Bobbie was a wonderful host, and had tea and freshly-baked cookies for us on arrival. Our room was spacious, with a wonderful 4 poster bed. In the evening, after a g&t in the living room, Bobbie served up a delicious 5-course meal in the cosy dining-room. A great welcome, and... More

Stayed here recently for 1 night while at a wedding in nearby Borris. Lovely old house and found the owner Bobbi to be as helpful and friendly as mentioned in other reviews. The rooms were excellent and spent nearly an hour and a half over breakfast. Would have loved to have tried dinner as would think from the quality of... More

Stayed at Lorum for a night while attending a wedding locally in June 2012. Bobbie the owner is not only a great cook but a real traditional Irish hostess who went out of her way to make us feel welcome (including driving us to the wedding reception!). We rarely stay in guesthouses in Ireland these days because of the number... More

As a previous reviewer noted- perhaps this place really should be kept an exclusive secret! Bobbie makes you feel more like you are a treasured good friend who has come to visit rather than a paying guest. In the evening she settles you down in the sitting room with a drink while she prepares dinner - served in an impressive... More
