If you are anywhere nearby you MUST make the effort to stay here. Ten year old B&B, extremely clean, with a great host. Located just a 10 minute walk from the main street of a wonderful little town that has a few really nice choices for dinner and/or music. Ask your host for a recommendation.

Would recommend this b&b highly. We were made to feel very welcome and would not hesitate booking again should we decide to have another holiday in Ireland. The breakfast was great and the room was extremely clean.

My husband and I were late in arriving from Dublin as we became part of the slow drive through heavy traffic from Dublin CBD. Our host, Tom, met us at the door and was most gracious. That was only the beginning of the most wonderful stay. How many B&B hosts wait up for you to return home to ask you... More

Avlon House is a beautiful B&B; beautiful, large, well-appointed rooms, vicinity to the sites in-town and surrounding areas, lovely gardens adorning the property and your choice of a delicious breakfast to start off your day. Tom was available for questions/concerns/requests and was good enough to provide tourist information. Thank you for a comfortable and enjoyable stay.

Avalon is a traditional B&B, with real attention to cleanliness and service. The facilities are good (private parking), breakfast impressive. Decor was very traditional and formal, old school rather than a more modern relaxed style. It's all about your preference really, but this is a very good B&B.
