I first visited this B&B 23 years ago shortly after they opened , many years on and the excellent standard remains.From a fantastic welcome by Mary, Vincent and their family to the spotless rooms and brilliant breakfasts this B&B has kept up with the needs of their guests. Very easy to find especially with the new road minutes away yet... More

Although we had trouble finding the B&B we were welcomed with tea and scones on arrival. We enjoyed watching the dairy cattle arrive and leave for their evening milking. The hostess was quite willing to chat about the farm and the area in general which we found very interesting. Wonderful breakfast included homemade jams and eggs from the farm.

We stayed here for one night, it was lovely: the room was large and comfortable, the irish breakfast really tasteful with local products and original recipes (like the banana bread). The location also is relaxing and fully immersed in the irish countryside.

This is our first visit here and we really enjoyed our stay. We had a warm welcome and scones, cream and tea and stayed in a nice clean room. The next morning had great irish breakfast with lovely fresh fruit and enjoyed meeting Mary Vincent and Family.

My wife and I stayed here recently, and were delighted we did. We arrived very late at night, and had been left a key to let ourselves in. The room was spotlessly clean, and the house itself is full of character and lots of little personal touches. Next morning we awoke to views of calves and hens outside, and beautiful... More

The farm location was so relaxing and located in an area that we could make day trips to many historical sites. A lovely double rainbow welcomed us after a drizzle. We had had a lot of rain at Glendalough so it was nice to return to the homey atmosphere of Ballindrum Farm. We watched a great movie that evening in... More

Enjoyed a week staying at the lodge which is situated at the entrance road to the farm. All on one level and mobility friendly. Mary greeted us warmly with tea and homemade scones. We ate breakfast at the farm twice, both delicious. The lodge was ideal for 3 of us, one being my 90 year old mum. She loved it.... More
