I can't make enough positive comments about Mary & Gerry and their wonderful B&B. I don't think you will find kinder and more gracious hosts anywhere. Clean and well kept rooms and delicious breakfasts - fresh bread and lots of smoked salmon with our scrambled. When we arrived mid afternoon Mary prepared tea and cookies as we sat on the... More

We stayed here in recent days to attend a Christmas party in Cong. The house is warm and cosy and our room was comfortable and spotless. Mary is a fantastic hostess, she dropped us to Cong and advised us that there was no rush up in the morning for breakfast, an added bonus as we were out for the night!... More

We stayed just one evening at Nymphsfield House and could have stayed much longer. Mary made you feel very welcome and she was a gracious host. I traveled with my extended family sharing two rooms. The beds were very comfortable and the bathroom was spotless. As we had just arrived from a long flight Mary gave us plenty of time... More

Mary was a delightful hostess with tea and specially baked bread and scones awaiting us on our arrival and pastries packed up for us to take as we left. Breakfast was delicious and made to order. Mary provide great directions for local sights and a history and interesting information about Cong. She suggested dinner at the Inn at Ashford Castle... More

Stayed for one night for a nearby wedding. Although I only spent a short amount of time in the house it was a lovely experience. The welcome was warm and genuine, the room was cosy and the location great. Mary even posted down my electric toothbrush when I left it behind...brilliant. Hopefully next time I stay it's for a little... More

From the moment we set foot in Nymphsfield House and received such a warm welcome from Mary our hostess we knew it was going to be a brilliant stay. Having been shown to our room we were immediately offered tea. Mary had such a wonderful spread for afternoon tea. Delicious homemade hot scones & tea. Mary gave us great advice... More

I am a very slight sleeper, but this was the most quiet and peaceful BB on my two week trip in Ireland, so I had a wonderful sleep. Mary is simply a delight, such a cheerful friendly lady - once you meet her, you just feel she is a good friend. Breakfast was also excellent, wifi worked well, parking easy,... More

Fantastic B&B. Mary truly makes your stay feel as a family member. The best afternoon tea time of any of our four B&B stays while on vacation. Mary will serve a breakfast that will blow you away. You can watch the neighbor's dog herd the sheep out the window of the end room.

Stayed at this delightful B&B on the 26th of August. This is accommodation as it should be. Great breakfast. Super room. And a delightful welcome from the evervescent host. There should be a Mary in every Bed and Breakfast. From Stephen in Kanturk Co. Cork
