We stayed at the Ashbrook last year for a wedding nearby. It was just perfect. We were the only guests that night, as the wedding was mid-week. In the morning Sean had set a table up for us in the bar beside the fire, it was magic. Clean, spacious and tastefully decorated room and the beds were very comfortable. I... More

Just reading through all the positive reviews here and there is little I can add really, other than to agree. We spent 2 nights (B&B, plus one lovely meal) with Rosita and Sean and we couldn't have asked for more. Friendly and accommodating, coupled with a really well run, professional setup. Got a great nights sleep in our large, peaceful... More

We stayed here for the night when attending a wedding at the castle. Room was clean and spacious, bed and pillows very comfortable indeed. I sometimes find guest houses to be a little noisy but there was certainly no problem with that here, our room was quiet and we had a great nights sleep. Bathroom modern and spacious with toiletries... More

Just returned from the most fantastic time in the Ashbrook Arms. We were attending a wedding in Durrow Castle and stayed here for the weekend. It is more than a guesthouse - honestly I've stayed in some great 4/5 star hotels and this guesthouse certainly rivals them. The staff were unbelievably friendly, the property/rooms are so clean and the food... More

We had our wedding reception at Ashbrook Arms 24 August 13. This was a fantastic venue for our party of 50. The hosts Sean and Rosezita and children treated us like royalty right from the start. The meal was served exactly at the time we asked and it was fresh and piping hot. All our guests complimented us on our... More

Met the whole family during our one night stay!! We arrived late the night before a wedding at the Castle. We were later than the check in period and the hosts had told us to just ring the bell because they live across the courtyard. Several members of the family came to greet us at the late hour and carry... More
