Secluded down a quiet road next to a field of grazing sheep near a horse farm yet close to town and the train for easy access to Dublin. The twin room was an ample size and had a small but clean bathroom.
After several disappointing B&Bs, we were so relieved to find a B&B run both professionally and with a huge dollop of friendliness. Unlike some other places, we didn't feel like we were putting out the hostess. Maureen offered us refreshments upon arrival, let us settle in, and then was very helpful in planning our time.
I have to say that Dublin was a disappointment--the weather wasn't good, the street signs practically non-existent, it was crowded, etc. There were some highlights--the Guinness tour, lunch at the Brazen Head...but I digress.
I wish we had spent the time discovering Maynooth instead. It's a quaint college town.
Breakfast was lovely. Afterward, I invited Maureen to sit and we talked and talked. She seems to take a genuine interest in her guests. She and her husband have children who are teenagers to graduated from college and working so we had a lot in common. We discussed the differences in school systems, the drinking problem in Ireland, the strong connection between the U.S. and Ireland, geneology... I could've stayed all day and visited but we had so much more to see and do! (Highly recommend visiting Russborough and you absolutely cannot miss the scenic route through the Wicklow Mountains.)
I would absolutely stay here again.
