Just a fantastic stay from start to finish. Greeted by the family dog, bottle feeding the sheep, taking a walk through the countryside following the hand written map provided by our hosts, the recommendation for the fantastic Indian restaurant that delivered to the hometown pub with live music, fresh and delicious breakfast ... I could go on and on but just do yourself a favor and stay a couple days here.
We spend one night at Lawcus farm. We weren't very lucky with the weather. But there was a place to put our motorbike, Mark gave us a tour and we saw the swans come home which was quite great! Lovely breakfast and nice people, everything was just perfect. even helped me with my helmet the next day ( I had a broken wrist), it comes naturly to Mark… Dinner in the local pub( with the take away a cross the street) was lovely! Thank you all.
My daughter and I originally stayed here at the end of a trip to Ireland in March 2016. After meeting Ann-Marie and Mark, and experiencing their kind hospitality and stellar accommodations, we made a point of going back during our trip in October 2019. This B&B is in a very peaceful location, close to Kells Priory (walking distance). The scenery and old factories along the river are picturesque. Mark will give you a map that he has drawn of the area - hang on to it. It's a work of art! Ann-Marie makes breakfast a five-star affair. You may get pretty much anything you want here from porridge and fruit, to a full-on Irish breakfast. And she is sincerely interested in getting to know her guests. She is a lovely person who I consider a long-distance friend. Mark is a genius with using salvage to create beautiful and comfortable rooms, and in the landscape in the farm. He will join guests in the breakfast solarium, and will entertain you with stories of how he and Ann-Marie met, and have built this beautiful home and guest house. If you like a farm stay kind of place, this will not disappoint. From horses and donkeys to chickens and guinea pigs:) I look forward to returning again some day.…
Hosts are very warm and welcoming upon arrival. The farm is a fantastic place to stay for at least a couple of nights if not more. The countryside is beautiful as is the property itself located on the river teaming with trout. We stayed in the tree house which was small, but wonderful. It has a path leading right to the front door and has a lovely porch to sit looking out over the river and forest. Breakfast was bountiful and very tasty and cooked to order. Be sure to ask for a tour of the main house which has quite a story.
Our family loves this places. A refurbished farmhouse it was historic and quaint. Our hosts were fun, energetic and full is great suggestions. The breakfast room is an all glass room the process a beautiful view of the surrounding area while enjoy a fresh made breakfast right in front of your eyes. A special highlight was visiting the local pub, meeting and taking with local residents and learning how to pour a pint of Guinness; the right way! We highly recommend this place if you are visiting the area.
