Trish is a very lovely host. She made sure we were very comfortable and catered very well for our vegetarian breakfast requests! We had some lovely breakfasts for the four days we stayed! Just could not eat all of it as Trish is too generous with her food! The room was beautifully appointed with all necessities and the bed was... More

This is not far from Shannon and would be a good place to spend time as you arrive from Shannon Airport or as a stay while exploring Ireland around Shannon. Trish is your host and can recommend quality restaurants and shops in the area. The breakfast in the... More

Our stay here was excellent! Trish was so nice! She let us check in early, since we were jet lagged from our flight that morning. She also upgraded our room for us for no extra charge! She made sure we had everything we needed and went above and beyond! The breakfast was delicious...I'm still dreaming about the amazing french toast!... More

Stayed with Trish the night before our departure from Shannon. We were able to drop off our luggage and enjoy the day exploring. Room was nice, comfortable bed and peaceful night. Breakfast was delicious and we were able to eat and get to airport without delay. Highly recommended!

We stayed with Trish for 2 nights in mid April and found her to be so inviting. The house is tucked away and very quite. The room was very clean and comfy as was the common room which had comfortable seating, a t.v. and lots of brochures to browse for things to do in the area. Breakfast was delicious and... More

My husband and I stayed at Briar Lodge, and it was the most comfortable stay. For the both of us, it was our first B&B stay and we're convinced it is far superior to hotels. Trish kept the place very clean, provided us with ample advice on places to go and visit, and she cooked us a full Irish breakfast... More
