“Absolutely brilliant!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 21, 2012

Beautiful house. Very clean. Excellent breakfast. Very helpful hostess. Lots of extras which made it special. Bernie did our washing for us and let the kids feed her chickens. She gave us lots of advice including where to eat and where to stay in our next town. Highly recommended. Thanks Bernie!! X

"Pat" took us late at night with a sense of humor - he stuck his head out the door and counted: one, two, three Germans, I guess? Equally pleasing was the quiet and clean rooms and a delicious Irish breakfast. Pats courtesy and friendly service are definitely recommended! The location of the hotel (approx. 10 min. Walk to the "center") makes it ideal for city travelers.

This was our second stay at Boffin Lodge, last year for our honeymoon, and this year to celebrate our first wedding anniversay-it was every bit as good as we remembered it from last year!

We were met with a warm welcome from the owner Paddy, who was so helpful and full of suggestions on the best places to go and history of the area which was lovely.

The room was lovely, huge comfy bed, tv, hairdryer, tea and coffee facilities, and good powerful shower in the en-suite.

The breakfast was out of this world, great selection, so much to choose from, and the perfect way to set you up for the day ahead!

All of the staff were lovely, helpful, and cant do enough for you.

We will definately be back again next year, and we wouldnt want to stay anywhere else!

Best B and B in Ireland and best I have ever been to.Excellent staff who certainly know how to treat people.Room was big with everything you need.The WIFI facility was a bonus along with the combo/satelite saorview.
We stayed 1 night.Breakfast was fantastic with a great choice available.Bernie is a very kind woman along with the rest of staff.Bernie made sure we had sticks for our Croagh Patrick mountain climb.The next morning we went to Westport House.
It was raining very heavy and Bernie made sure to give us raingear and umberellas which added
a nice touch to our stay. We will definetley be back again.This is the way B and B's should be run.
