“Villa Pio B & B is absolutely a 5 star rating!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 17, 2012

Out of all the 4 and 5 star hotels we stayed at in Scotland and Ireland, Villa Pio B&B is by far the best of all of them!
Ann and Marty gave us such a warm welcome when we arrived. The rooms were tastefully decorated, extremely clean, like new and very comfortable. They made us feel at home right away.
They operate the local taxi service and Marty drove us into Congto see the Ashford castle. He was a wealth of information about the castle and also regarding the locations where the"The Quiet Man" was filmed. Ann also happened to have a DVD of the movie and we thoroughly enjoyed watching it in the comfortable sitting room.
Ann prepared the four of us a fantastic tradional full Irish breakfast each morning which was absolutley yummy! At the end of our stay, Marty drove us all the way back to the train station in Galway. They were so accommodating!
Staying at the Villa Pio was very peaceful and relaxing which made it all worth while and was the best part of our trip to Ireland ! We highly recommend staying at this 5 star B&B with this lovely Irish couple -- it's an excellent choice!

Room Tip: There are no stairs to climb and the rooms have a wonderful breeze. For lunch or dinner, Marty and A...

We stayed for 4 nights at Villa Pio. Ann made us welcome straight away with tea and biscuits and advised us of places to visit in the area. The house is very tastefully decorated and spotlessly clean. There is a comfortable lounge and a lovely garden to sit in and admire the views. It was a little too far to walk into Cong for dinner, but Ann and Marty are the local taxi company and have a very plush taxi which we took advantage of! We ate at Lydon's and Ryan's Hotel and the food was excellent. Cong is ideal for visiting the local loughs and Quiet Man locations. It is also a short drive to Ballinrobe for those interested in Mayo family history.

We have visited Villa Pio at Mayfly time for more years than I care to remember. Ann and Marty are wonderful hosts,the house is warm and comfortable and the breakfast sets you up for the rest of the day. After our first stay we have never looked for accommodation in Cong anywhere else, the experience really is that good.
Try it,you'll love it.

I visited Villa Pio last November with a group of friends. Whilst Cong is a bit off the beaten track, it makes this lovely B and B all the more inviting. It is typically Irish. A wonderful warm welcome awaits you by your hosts Ann and Marty. The rooms are great and they are accompanied by a slap up full Irish breakfast .. of course! Both Ann and Marty are happy to share their family home with you. The views are wonderful and you can walk pretty much anywhere .. before breakfast is a good idea! Marty even has a taxi and a bus and is very amenable to your wishes! Its a great B and B in a great place. Wholly recommended for groups or family.
