This beautiful hotel is an ideal stop off point for travellers - it is spotlessly clean and the bedroom big and spacious - breakfast was very good indeed although I felt that it was run on a strict budget..ask for juice you get one glass of juice etc. The lady serving the breakfast seems to be run off her feet...

As an American, traveling abroad can be difficult because we have high standards, but the Ashbrook Arms went above and beyond meeting our standards. The Ashbrook Arms was wonderful. We stayed in the restored stable area. Our room was large and very comfy. It fit our family perfectly. the towels... More

Start: If I could give this Guesthouse a 7 star, I would. I was so impressed with it. The proprietors (Sean and Rosita) were absolutely lovely - really genuine people - nothing put on - it was obvious that they loved and were so proud of what they were doing. The Hotel (I think of it more as a hotel... More

Just back from a stay at the Ashbrook Arms Guesthouse at the weekend. We were attending a wedding at Castle Durrow and stayed overnight B/B. I was really very pleasantly surprised at the exceptional quality of this Guesthouse. It far exceeded my expectations of a guesthouse and in fact, you could be forgiven for thinking it a 4 star hotel.... More

We stayed here for a wedding in castle Durrow. I cannot recommend it enough. The rooms are beautiful with fresh glass bottles of still and sparkling ballygowen left daily :) breakfast is great. The host is so friendly and you can walk 5 seconds to Bob's bar for some trad Irish music across the road.
