Lovely house in quiet rural location about 5 minutes drive from Congo. Clean and spacious room with comfortable bed. We were the only guests as the owner was off to Dublin the next day, we were made to feel welcome although we were concerned that Mary had delayed her travel plans so that we could stay. Her local knowledge was... More

We were visiting Cong for a family wedding. The excellent service began before we arrived with instructions as to find the place. As soon as checked in, we were offered a cuppa. We were then told exactly how to find the venue for the wedding. The room was very comfortable and the breakfast was monumental! An especially nice touch was... More

Could not ask for much more in a B&B. The room was great and the breakfast perfect. Not quite easy walking distance from the center of town, but I imagine it is hard to get to Cong without a car anyways. Cant go wrong staying at this place.

Great, great, great. Nice contry, nice house, fantastic people, the best breakfast, and you can sleep like never before. Mary,s family lives here and some friends come and visit them, but they never disturb you...despite they always are there when you really need them. Great.

Three nights this October turned out to be a highlight of our trip to Ireland. Cong is a great destination and ideally situated for many adventures. Mary is a fabulous hostess. The rooms are spacious, clean and inviting, the breakfast is homemade, plentiful and delicious. Mary is very accommodating with lots of good touring advice and interesting conversation. But beyond...

I can't say enough about this delightful B & B. Mary is the most charming hostess imaginable, even for Ireland, the most hospitable country in the world. Her Irish breakfasts are delicious and abundant. Her house is lovely, and set in a very convenient location, both for enjoying Cong and for visiting Galway City. She was very helpful with suggestions... More

Attended a wedding in Cong on Saturday 17th August 2013 and stayed in Nymphsfield House B&B. The accomadation and food is excellent and Mary our Hostess could not do enough for you. I would highly recommend anyone looking for accomadation in Cong to look no further. Tommy/Grainne.

Mary was such a sweet lady. And her husband was nice too. He stayed home half of a day to make sure to be there in case we came early. She greeted us with tea and biscuits in the dining room which had a lovely outdoor patio. She asked us what we were planning to do and she helped us... More

The B&B was lovely and spacious and clean. Breakfast was lovely and plentiful. Mary was one of the characters that stood out during the whole trip. The staff at nearby Ashford Castle tried to display 5* propriety which melted immediately when Mary called out from the car in her own friendly way (when she kindly dropped me off for dinner)...
