Decided to drive and see a bit of the East coast. Having travelled over the mountains and arrived at The Old Coach House, there was a warm welcome by Barbara. They were painting the interior and freshening it up for the season ahead. My room was pretty and clean with tea/coffee facilities, flat screen and wifi. I had asked for... More

Very warm welcome with a pot of tea and some apple cake. The fire in the living room was going and it instantly felt homely. Breakfast was included in the price and consisted of a fantastic variety of hot & cold options. All were delicious and set us up well for the day. The owners Barbara & Michael were so... More

Everything was gust perfect specially the hosts who are very kind. It is perfect for 3 stars hotel. Not for luxuries vacation. It is close to a lot of nature attractions and nice towns even for walking tours.

My sister and I stayed in this lovely B & B for one night on our travels around Ireland, the hosts are very friendly, welcoming and informative about the area. We were given coffee and biscuits on arrival which we had in the garden, and soon we had lots of new friends, (of the chicken variety), it was great. The... More

I booked into The Old Coach House with my mother and my aunt for a week's stay. Barbara and Michael are the perfect hosts; they made us so welcome that we settled and relaxed very quickly. Even the family cat and their assortment of chickens seemed to go out of their way to make us feel at home! We had... More

Stayed 2 nights in June. Like visitng with the family. Lovely big room and bathroom once you get the hang of managing the shower! Breakfasts were too ample! Recommendations for dinners were very good. Mick is full of local lore and his advice on where to go is invaluable. Thank you for your hospitality!

We were booked in for 3 weekend nights and got spectacularily lost on the fri but Barbara rang us enough and guided us in!The most genial hosts we've ever met, our room was spacious,spotless and as requested, with a view of the Vale,Avoca river and Miner's Cross. Being close to the road never occurred to us as being a problem... More
