We have just had a weeks stay at Beech Lodge self catering - I am a permanent wheelchair user and everything was great for me , I easily coped independently which speaks volumes for the cottage. Apart from that the cottage was spotlessly clean and Mary made us feel very welcome particularly with her super scones and jam - we... More

As we arrived in the late afternoon, quite tired, our host Mary greeted us with her delicious scones and tea. The room we had was small but certainly adequate for a night and spotlessly clean. Tea and coffee were available at all times on the landing between the rooms. Since this is a working dairy farm, we were able to... More

Stayed here having come to Ireland for a family wedding. Mary and Vincent did a great job of welcoming us with gorgeous scones and jam and tea. Loved the breakfast choices! All in all, friendly warm service and hospitality and clean and adequately furnished apartment. Would definitely recommend it. Thanks. Therese.

We stayed here while attending a wedding reception at a nearby hotel. Despite being in a secluded rural location, the B&B was easy to find, thank to the signposts off the main road. The owner greeted us on arrival with coffee and warm homemade scones, which were gorgeous! We stayed in an annex off the main building, which was set... More

A very special place to visit. Have been going for the past several years, can't miss this family when I go to Ireland.

Ballindrum farm is lovely and a very relaxing stay. A family of four with older kids (18,20) we were very tired from a long drive and a 24 hassle with lost luggage.

Dear Guest, Thank you for taking time to review us and for you lovely descriptions. I understand you point about the window and we did consider it, but it would create an odd window at the front of the house. It has a blind and curtains for privacy. More
