If you're looking to tour this region of Ireland, this is the place to stay. The region is the quintessential Ireland countryside that you're not sure truly exists, until you actually see it for yourself. The hospitality is first rate. The rooms, especially ours, are wonderful. We stayed in a very private west facing room with an unobstructed view of... More

Three generations of our family, nine of us in all, embarked on a driving tour around Ireland to visit our ancestral homes and everywhere else in-between. After Dublin, we booked four nights at the Brandon View House so we could visit ancestral sites in Wexford, Carlow, and Kilkenny Counties. This location proved to be absolutely perfect for our needs.

We stayed for one night. The location is a good 10 minutes drive from Graiguenamanagh, out in the country, in a beautiful setting. The hostess Helen was very helpful on the surface, but there were issues which made us feel somewhat unwelcome, like untrusted naughty children. I'm sure that wasn't the intent, but everywhere was festooned with notices, eg "No... More

First of all, we found the accommodations to be very nice, the country setting was awesome and the breakfast was first rate, I especially liked the setting of breakfast room and background Irish music. Here's what I didn't like - Of all of the places that we stayed on our 2 week trip, this was the only place that had... More

Dear Guest thank you for taking the time to review our home it was lovely to meet you and have you stay.

Excellent accommodation in a quiet country setting. We had some trouble with the GPS which kept trying to take us to a different area, but well worth the effort once we found the place. Helen is a great Hostess and provides a huge breakfast and lots of local information.

I stayed here while I was attending a wedding in borris. I was told that it was a short drive from borris but in fact it was nearly 15 mins from borris which ended up costing me 30 euros to get a taxi to and from borris. I was able to check in early but was just given the key... More

Very clean, welcoming B&B in a beautiful rural spot. Stayed here for a night to attend an event in Graiguenamanagh, which is about a 10 minute drive away. The bedroom and bathroom were spotless and I slept very well. The freshly cooked breakfast the next day was delicious and served in a very nice conservatory. The owner was very welcoming... More

I would highly recommend going back to this bread and breakfast. Helen was wonderful. The premises was clean and welcoming the breakfast was very good. The location was very scenic and beautiful. It was homey and the family dogs were great.
