We stayed on night as we were meeting family for dinner in Parkers I Riverstown. Minnock's is a good bit out of town but taxi's are relatively cheap. Room was clean but a little dated. Breakfast was freshly cooked with plenty of food and good fresh toast and brown bread.

The hostess, Veronica, was extremely nice and helped me, a weary traveler, feel at home. To me it was a true authentic Irish experience. The Irish breakfast was really good. Nothing to complain about. Great hospitality.

This bed and breakfast is situated halfway between Birr and Roscrea it’s on the N62 but well set back from the road so quiet although we had a room at the rear overlooking fields. A warm welcome from the owner and her three dogs when we arrived and were offered a cup of tea on arrival and shown to a... More

Veronica made us feel extremely welcome on arrival, and settled us in with a pot of tea and biscuits. To be honest the welcome we received felt as though we had known her all our lives, and had popped in for a visit. The rooms were clean and comfy. I have never been a fan of staying in a b&b....

Friendly welcome by humans and lassie dogs alike. Beautiful flowers. Lovely grounds for this old converted house. Lovely hearty breakfast. Peaceful sleep and yet not too far from the motorway. Looking forward to the scenic drive here amongst the mountains
