One of my favourite places to stay. You have a feeling of home from home and the host is warm and welcoming. The bedrooms are large and the beds are very comfortable. You have a large selection of food for breakfast and the French toast is a must. The grounds are beautiful and they welcome dogs. Overall this is a... More

Why do you go to a B&B? For the hospitality of home with the convenience of a hotel. Sandymount fits that to a tee. The house is quaint, the rooms cozy, and the grounds quiet and peaceful. But the best attraction is the hosts--wonderfully gracious and welcoming. I could not recommend the Sandymount more highly. You won't regret a visit... More

Gorgeous Georgian house set in a large garden, just outside Abbeyleix. Very warm welcome on arrival with tea and cakes served in our room. Felt very personal and comfortable. Gorgeous big room on the front of the house. Comfy squishy bed. Lovely breakfast served in cosy setting. Really enjoyed our short stay.

Enjoyed our stay at Sandymount. Room and breakfast were lovely as was our host Avril, who shared history of home and area. Loved patting the horses in back. We drove to Kilkenny to sight see from the house and back. Perfect place to stay for last night in Dublin w fairly easy ride to Dublin. Highly recommended!

My mother and I recently stayed at Sandymount House and enjoyed our stay. Avril, the owner was very nice and even had a bottle of water for us in our room when we got there. The room was nice and the bed was comfortable. We were there 2 different days and each day we had a little different breakfast. Both... More

My sister, my niece and I stayed here for two nights on 16 and 17 April. We travelled with another two friends who also stayed. The house is beautiful. It is scrupulously clean and tastefully decorated throughout. When we first arrived Avril made tea and coffee for us and brought out some delicious scones and cake. We sat in the... More

Easy to find, personable and friendly innkeeper, great breakfast (my friend loved the coffee) and wonderful and well decorated room. The breakfast eggs came from Sandymont's own chickens. Would definitely stay here again!
