We arrived at Ashdene after nearly 30 hours of no sleep and we were very happy to finally be there. Jackie was a wonderful host bringing us tea and pie. The room was clean and comfortable. The area was beautiful and so quiet! After a good night sleep, we had one of the best breakfasts of our trip. The bread... More

We visited Avoca (the Ballykissangel village of the TV series) and selected Ashdene House after reading Trip Advisor reviews. Very glad we did, because we had a very enjoyable one night stop over. Jackie made us very welcome on our arrival, and served us tea and rhubarb pie which was delicious and very welcome after a long drive. A shortish... More

If you are looking for a quiet, relaxing stay then this is the place for you. The lack of local amenities is totally overcome by the serene area and beautiful views. Breakfast was amazing and there was plenty to choose from. The homemade apple pie that was served with a cup of tea when my travelling companions and I arrived... More

We booked this B&B as we found it among the list of places that would accept our "bandbireland.com" voucher, and the lovely town of Avoca was on our list of destinations as I am a fan of the TV series Ballykissangel that was filmed there. Ashdene Country Home was comfortable and the Burns' were welcoming and generous. Our twin room... More

I was there only one night, but I would have been much more! They think of everything, even the smallest details. The place is beautiful, warm and comfortable. The meals are delicious. I will return there as soon as you can!

A warm greeting and hot cup of tea introduced us to the lovely Ashdene Country House. Jackie is a charming host and made us feel a part of her home, not like a paying customer. And the breakfast was super, just what we wanted, with good choices and excellent quality. Her husband Mervyn, who we met shortly after check-in, was... More

My friend and I stayed at Ashdene Country Home on our last trip to Ireland. It was a lovely place to stay, located just so in the middle of everything. They were hospitable, room was awesome, and instructions of where and when activities would be. Great people.
