Brilliant b & b. Brilliant hosts. Luxurious room exquisitely decorated and exceptionally clean. Excellent en-suite. Most beautiful Irish breakfast - especially the crispy potato bread. Barbara and Bill go above and beyond the call of duty eg: dropped us down to the wedding venue and picked us up again at midnight!!! Highly recommend. Great fun.

Light and airy, comfortable, scrupulously clean and quality touches such as bathrobes, nibbles and choices of tea and coffee. Bill and Barbara are great hosts, likeable and funny.

This is the best place you will stay! People are fun, funny, kind, entertaining, helpful! The place is snug, quiet, homey. We stayed here for 2 nights in September and would love to return to Ireland just to go to The Retreat Greabbey! Many thanks to Barb and Bill for a great start to our vacation!
