Our last night in Ireland was spent at Lough Bishop House with Christopher and Helen Kelly. It was a perfect way to end our trip. The house is a wonderfully restored 1700s manor house. Every detail is perfect. There is a book showing every step of the renovation and it is amazing to see the loving, hard work put into... More

We stayed just one night, our last night in Ireland (farm is an easy hour's drive to the airport). It was the perfect way to end our trip: scenic, peaceful and friendly. The Kellys gave us a fun tour of the farm on a cart attached to a four-wheel ATV; they drove us into fields and we got up-close and... More

We stayed here on our first night in Ireland in August of 2015. We had a wonderful stay. The farmhouse is beautiful, friendly and inviting filled with family pictures and their sweet dogs. The room was very clean. Tea and snacks were great, and one of our favorite parts was sitting in the living room with Christopher and Helen. Helen... More

Thank you for your comments! Our area of the midlands can be tricky for evening meals. It is true that very little is open on a Monday or a Tuesday evening there just doesn't seem to be the demand. We offer evening meals to guests who are staying, but as per our website people need to book before noon to... More

We were so happy we stayed here. It's a little off the beaten path, but still easy to find using Google directions. The house is beautifully restored and wonderfully decorated. Everything was super clean and we enjoyed the living room with a warm fire instead of spending time in our room. There is also a sunroom which would be a... More

What a pleasure to stay in Lough Bishop House with the Kelly's. If you are looking for a country retreat - well off the road, homemade food, an example of courageous restoration, a comfortable big bed and a warm welcome this is the place for you. My boyfriend and I enjoyed a night here in September. On the Sunday we... More

My cousin and I stayed with Helen and Christopher for five nights in September while we traveled around Westmeath. It was so peaceful and quiet after a day of navigating the "roads" around the county. Nice to come home and have a peat fire for relaxing. They were super friendly ( as were their dogs). Christopher showed us around the... More

Welcomed by host Helen with tea and cake, and shown around the restored house. Driven around the farm by Christopher to meet the cows and horses, to view the landscape, to breathe in the country air. Dinner was fine country fare, in the company of our hosts, as was breakfast. This was the best B and B we encountered in... More

It may seem a little of the beaten track, but it is well worth the visit. Christopher and Helen Kelly will look after you very well. The setting is idyllic with beautiful farmland and the sounds of the Irish countryside seeping in through your open window... perhaps the rooster is the exception but that is ok . We had dinner...

This was the best B&B on our entire Ireland trip. Helen and Christopher are super friendly hosts. They made a wonderful home out of the old farmhouse and proudly showed us their farm with the horses, cattle, sheep, chicken and dogs. The room was very nice and the bed was comfortable, even for a man of 1,96 m height. Breakfast... More

This is the best place we stayed in Ireland on a fairly extensive trip. The house is beautifully restored (by the owners) and well decorated and cared for. Very comfortable and well equipped. The farm is terrific with a moderate flock of sheep (suffolks, mixed breeds), horses and cows -- but you don't have to love sheep etc. to stay... More

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Built in the early 19th Century, Lough Bishop is a charming Country House nestling peacefully into a south-facing slope overlooking Bishop's Lough in County Westmeath, Ireland. Lough Bishop provides unique Country House Bed & Breakfast Accommodation owing to its wonderful location in the middle of a working organic farm. Breathtaking scenery in an unspoilt and tranquil setting, amid the rolling farmlands and lakes of Westmeath make Lough Bishop an ideal refuge from the hustle and bustle of modern life. There are family dogs in the background and animals play a large part of life at Lough Bishop House. Following extensive renovation this attractive Georgian Country Farmhouse offers its guests luxurious bed and breakfast accommodations, peaceful surroundings and fine food much of which comes from our own farm, garden and orchard. ... more   less
