I have stayed in Cairbre House a few times now, my most recent stay was this Easter weekend. The owner of the B&B "Brian" is very welcoming, giving guests a free run of the surroundings. Cairbre House is beautifully set along the water and has ample gardens. The house is full of history and character. Breakfast is excellent, top quality... More

We stayed at Cairbre house en route to Rás Mumhan in Cill Orglan. The rooms were cosy, the food was great and Brian was very accomodating allowing us to use the Garage as storage for bikes. We all had an excellent nights sleep & a fantastic breakfast which was exactly what we needed

We prefer to stay in places of character instead of predictable hotels and Cairbre House was perfect. Lovely location jutting out into the Corrigan River, 5 mins walk from the town centre. Very charming reception and bedrooms and lovely breakfast. Brian was so friendly and helpful - he went the extra mile to find a charger for my phone, so... More

Brian the host is a pure gentleman, the house full of atmosphere and set in beautiful gardens, the food is of high quality: no corners cut at all, price very reasonable: overall I highly recommend Cairbre House. The second day of our stay was rainy so we sat and read in the conservatory overlooking the mountains and estuary and Brian... More

What a perfect stay! We arrived quite late with no reservation and were warmly welcomed. The good impression just got better and better during the stay. The house is beautiful with most interesting family history in the photos on the walls. The furnishings and facilities are excellent, the information provided about the area is very useful and the meals and... More

This was a wonderful B&B. The hosts were extremely friendly and helpful. The location was peaceful on the edge of the river and the grounds beautiful and well looked after as is the house. The accomodations were charming and comfortable. The house has a very interesting historiy. By far the best breakfast we had in Ireland! Whether you are solo,... More

Our host was Brian and he really made us feel at home. He grows his own flowers and veggies and does amazing breakfasts with added touches of fresh flowers. Rooms are huge, super clean and have all the amenities you could want for a B & B. He has a lovely sun room overlooking the river which we enjoyed using... More

We have stayed in several B&B during this trip across Ireland and the UK and the Carbre House is unquestionably the best of all. The house itself is beautiful and very well taken care of. Its old style and features are mantained fully but it has been restored to have modern conforts. One can see everywhere little details proving how... More

This is an old house full of character, lovely, welcoming staff and delicious food all for €40 per person sharing! My breakfast was so beautifully presented, decorated with edible flowers from the garden that I took a photograph of it. It tasted even better than it looked! My bed was very comfortable and I had a great night's sleep. The... More
