Ive stayed here at least a dozen times over the last 6 years. The owners are very friendly and try very hard. Home cooked food but nothing fancy. Good honest value and tasty food. The rooms are quite basic however the bed is comfy and the shower works. Amazing value for money here and i hope to return soon.

Had a very comfortable room with big bathroom. Very friendly couple made us feel very welcome and showed us that they appreciated our custom. Will certainly go back there again. The food was excellent. Look forward to returning.

We booked for 1 night and decided to stay for 2. After arriving late and travel weary Dave made us a lovely meal. The bed is comfortable, the bathroom is large. Outside the gardens are very quiet and peaceful. Food and service is beyond fault. The rooms are lovely, we had a very restful stay. Cannot recommend The Pilgrims Rest... More

Arrived with my friend for two nights, very relaxed quiet location, good rooms, very clean toilets and a good power shower in both our rooms. Slept well and enjoyed a very generous well thought out continental breakfast with fabulous coffee, staff friendly and helpful.

In a peaceful and quiet location, close to some truly spectacular countryside the Pilgrims Rest is a little paradise. Our rooms were spacious, clean and comfy, just what we needed for our nights stay. The food was delicious, all locally sourced and freshly cooked. The portions were amply big enough and the choice good. Our hosts were sooooo friendly and... More

Little to add from previous visits. An excellent clean spacious room with a large ensuite bath and shower. Breakfast all you wanted, full Irish or just cereal and toast depending on taste. They also provided an excellent evening meal all at a reasonable price. Plenty of on site parking and good Wifi in room. The owners do everything to make... More

We were made to feel very welcome after a long detour as the road was closed. We were impressed with the delicious roast dinners, and our hosts could not do enough for us. The breakfast was not as good as we had been enjoying of late. But the hospitality Made up for it.

Peace and quiet in this peaceful place. No children allowed, no night club next door, no traffic, aircraft or renovation work. Just fab food, on proper plates (no lettuce leaf drizzled with balsamic on a square plate here) wooden floors, comfy settees in the lounge, proper fire on cooler days, tea and coffee available 24/7 in the lounge, with proper...

Thanks so much for hosting us the way you did. We 3 arrived dishevelled after a long and were looked after so well. The fabulous home cooked meal left us glowing with that contented home away from home feeling.

This is a real gem in the heart of the country side. Super staff, fabulous food, real comfy rooms. The hosts were so welcoming and friendly. Took a walk to the nearby Abbey (which is huge and imposing) in the beautiful countryside. Warmed up by the hotel fireside afterwards. Highly recommended.
