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

We found Eileen to be a charming host and a stupendous chef. In addition to a very comfortable stay, she was a tremendous help in planning our touring and telling us about little known local sites and restaurants that gave us an authentic taste of Ireland. We will definitely recommend this B&B to anyone going to visit Ireland. Terri &... More

I stayed for three nights at The Orchard and enjoyed my stay there a lot. When I arrived I had a piece of Eileens wonderful Guinness-cake and coffee. She emailed me the recipe and I just baked it myself. I had a room on the front of the house. The bed was very nice. The only thing that I didn't... More

We stayed at the Orchard on our cycling holiday. We were met with a warm welcome, tea and cake. We had a place to store our bikes and Eileen looked after us as well as we would be at home. A great place to stay, nice room and a good cooked breakfast with home made jam and bread.

My daughters and I enjoyed this lovely B&B so much! Eileen and her husband Pat welcomed us warmly after a long day with the famous Guinness cake and tea, even though we arrived very late. The rooms are very comfortable and clean with lots of sweet touches. A great place to stay!!

I had booked our first night in Ireland at The Orchard after emailing Eileen and letting her know know that we would be arriving early in the morning and would be needing to take a nap. We arrived even earlier than expected (even before the current guests were up for breakfast) but Eileen welcomed us with tea and fresh baked... More

Eileen is a gracious host. My mom and I stayed for 2 days. Eileen packed us a delicious lunch which we had in Recess next to the Connemara Giant in Recess. Roast beef sandwiches on brown bread,tea in a flask. Recess. Makes a great stout bread.
