Another little gem.. thanks to Tripadvisor and previous reviewers..we felt SO much at home..what a lovely welcome and we didn't want to leave... please SERIOUSLY consider arranging a meal BEFORE you arrive..exceptional food and whilst we were there we sadly witnessed a couple of disappointed guests who didn't pre-arrange an evening meal...and don't be afraid to request a change from...

From the moment we turned up the driveway and saw this beautiful home, we knew we had selected the perfect place to begin our Ireland vacation. When we stepped out of our car, Antoinette was there to greet us and welcome us into their home. Not only upon our arrival, but each time we came back from touring, either Antoinette... More

Our recent three-day stay with Antoinette and Andrew was supremely delightful and restorative in every way. We cannot think of a single flaw that would make us hesitate to encourage anyone with an eye for beauty and peace to come immediately to Dollardstown House. We were welcomed instantly with warmth and graceful enthusiasm, as if we were treasured friends arriving... More

When trying to describe the Dollardstown House Experience, the words that came to mind were:Lovable. Great integrity. Hope for the world. Thank you Tripadvisor! When we - a group of three lifelong friends - were looking for somewhere interesting to stay, the Well-Organised One spotted the reviews of Dollardstown House on Tripadvisor (as well as on Alistair Sawday's site). It... More

We (wife, daughter aged 6 and I) stayed here for one night during the summer. Booking the family room at late notice was not a problem and was handled perfectly by Antoinette. She asked if we had any special requests and when I told her that my wife is a celiac I was assured that it would not be a... More

My wife & I stayed one night. Only sorry it could not be two! Lovely old home, all renovated in keeping. Lovely quality sheets, pillows etc. As hosts the owners are exceptional. You are made to feel you are the best thing to ever arrive at their premises. Can't speak highly enough of the stay. Judy & Donald, New Zealand

I stayed at Dollardstown House in June and loved every moment of my time there. There are 5 rooms available and I would highly recommend the Iris room as it is filled with natural lighting and the colors are lovely. The view from the front of the home consists of grazing livestock in a farther pasture and the front gardens... More

We reached Dollardstown towards the end of our two-week journey across Ireland and we couldn’t imagine anything can top the extraordinary Irish hospitality we encountered everywhere (well, almost everywhere…), but Andrew and Antoinette managed to do that… surprisingly so, beyond all expectations! They are truly THE BEST hosts anyone can wish for. And their house… wow! ‘guest house’ is an... More

This is an amazing old house, preserving the aristocratic style - a true jewel that anyone will be delighted to discover. Lovely hosts - they send us all needed details to locate the house easier and waited for us with tea and cookies. They even offer us a larger room than the one booked, so we enjoyed a higher comfort... More

We stayed here on our way back North from Kilkenny. A real gem in the heart of Ireland. The first excuse will see us down again as it is so much more than just the usual guest house experience. Really highly recommended. Special thanks to Antoinette for the scones and guidance for our early morning ramble.
