My husband and I stayed in the orchard at the end of May and I have been meaning to write a review but kept putting it aside. It is so easy to complain these days when you get bad service, but we don't often highlight when we get great service. Now in July, I think of the brief stay we... More

I was recommended to the Orchard by some good locals in Limerick in very short notice. There is a a general charm and hospitality that is spoken about Irish people, however, once you experience it, it leaves you with a great feeling of satisfaction. I was greeted by Eileen and before you can ask for anything, immediately, she provided all... More

The place is situated about 5 minutes outside a local town and 30 minutes to city Limerick. Upon arrival we were greeted by Patrick who cordially greeted us and offered some tea. The place itself is a country side house and is very much like staying at a family members house. (A family members house you would want to stay... More

Located directly along the N21 road just northeast of the intersection with road R521 in the town of Newcastle West, roughly 55 km from Shannon, The Orchard is a pleasant small B&B in what appears to be an older country house in good repair. The hostess, Eileen is extremely personable and friendly and makes the B&B a special place. She... More

It was night time and we didn't have a place to go and we came across this place and had a a decent rest. The hostess was nice and Breakfast was great. The room we got wasn't the prettiest. But it was clean. It was affordable and it was quiet.

Hi, I would like to thank Eileen for the great help and advice about Newcastle West town and for the Hospitality while staying at this good BNB. The beds were comfortable and I was always got a god nights sleep. It was based in a quiet place 1km east of Newcastle West Town and easy to walk to the town... More

If your looking for hospitality and great home made food the Orchard bed & breakfast is the place to be. Myself and my sister and her husband arrived late Friday night to a very warm welcome by Eileen Murphy. She immediately made us so welcome with a nice pot of tea and some home made fruit cake. I had a... More

What a warm, cozy home. We were warmly welcomed by Eileen's daughter with tea and very tasty guinness bread. Our accommodations were very nice. It was fun to talk with Eileen over a fantastic breakfast and we had to tear ourselves away to continue our journey. We would highly recommend this delightful b&b.

In my effort to find lodgings that do not allow pets (to accommodate my severe allergies), I sent out a blanket inquiry to B&Bs in Ireland. The response that I received from Eileen was so delightful that I decided that, if at all possible, we were going to stay at The Orchard. So much of the enjoyment that we get... More

Eileen went on holiday and left my husband and I in Josie's capable hands. She was very attentive and friendly with knowledge of the locale. The bathrooms are perhaps quirky but the water is hot and they provide a dispenser with shampoo/conditioner and soap. Our sink was outside of the bathroom and had a separate faucet for hot and cold... More
