Tim is a great host with nothing being too much trouble. Nadine looks after the breakfast service and ensures everything is 100%. Would have no hesitation recommending this place and we will...

Tim was very helpful in suggesting restaurants and excursions and Nadine's breakfasts were...

We were only able to stay two nights at Ashbourne as it was fully booked for the third night we wanted to stay. Tim and Nadine could not have done any more to help us make us make the most of our stay - from hiring bikes, recommending and booking restaurants, organising cabs to having the most lovely home away...

This was one of the best places we have ever stayed. The setting, comfort, and welcome were exemplary. Tim and Nadine do better than five star: friendly, professional and warm. Rooms are fabulous and the setting is perfect for the town; quiet but close. And the breakfasts and pool area! Come soon! Terrific value and lovely guests. Well done!!
