on arrival at dungimmon house grainne and john had our rooms ready for us as we were attending a wedding in the slieve russell and needed to change our clothes.Rooms were spotless bed soooo comfy food excellent. As we had left the car up at the hotel john the owner of the b&b said he wud run us up after breakfast to get it not many ppl would do this . breakfast was scrumptious. our room was at the front of the house and it was so peaceful awakening to a glorious morning. highly recommended

Room Tip: rooms at the front for us was beautiful

When I first tried booking for 2 nights. John informed me that they were only selling a 3 night package which was not suitable for me as I was staying there with friends. He was very happy to ammend this for me. The welcome was friendly, rooms comfy and bereakfast amazing!! My only criticism, through no fault of the hotel management at all, is that an external 'review site'. BnB select states there is a residents bar, when there isnt. not the end of the world however!!

All in all an excellent stay, thank you so much!

Dear Stuart,
Lovely to hear from you following your recent stay and we are so happy that you enjoyed your visit to Dungimmon House. We're always happy to tailor our packages to suit each guest's needs and glad that we could accommodate you comfortably. I'm sorry that you were misled about a residents bar, it would be a lovely idea however and maybe a thought for the future.
Best wishes to you both, and many thanks.

This was our 2nd visit to the lovely Dungimmon House. We enjoyed it so much the 1st time we felt compelled to return. It is conveniently located up the road from the Slieve Russell Golf Course. We were greeted with warmth and felt refreshed when it came time to move on to our next destination after a wonderful breakfast. No doubt 3rd time will be just as lovely.

Just returned from 2 night stay at John & Grainne's Dungimmon House B&B. Our stay was just great. The room was spotless and we were greeted so friendly at all times. The house is quite close to Slieve Russell hotel , I walked it this morning slowly in 30 mins just to cure hangover. Our room had good tv reception but very poor mobile for O2. Shower was excellent, breakfast was amazing with lots of choices on the menu. It truly is a lovely setting and great value for money. There is a separate lounge for guests with tea & coffee included. Parking is close to house but ask for room at back of house otherwise you can hear guests coming in at all hours. Overall we loved our stay and our hosts were true professionals. It,s so good to get old fashioned Irish hospitality and we will definitely return to this location. Tks for great stay guys!!!!!!!!Fabian & Mag

Dear Fabian,
Thanks for taking the time to post a review following your recent stay over the August Bank Holiday. It's always nice to hear honest feedback from guests and always rewarding to hear that you enjoyed your stay and the service we provide. As in many rural locations mobile phone signals can sometimes be a problem, and for some reason O2 coverage is particularly poor. I hope that this did not take away from an otherwise pleasant stay.
Please bear us in mind when travelling in this direction in the future. It would be lovely to welcome you back.
Kind Regards,
John Deegan

The staff at Dungimmon House are so friendly & welcoming. Nothing was too much trouble. We had a very comfortable stay, the rooms are clean & tidy & the breakfast was great. I was worried about our stay as we have a young baby but they made us feel so relaxed which made things so much easier. For what you pay it is great value for money! We had a lovely stay.

Just had a fantastic stay in beautiful Dungimmon House. Everything exceeded our expectations: the house, the grounds, the warmth of the welcome upon arrival. Nothing was too much trouble for the owners John and Grainne. We stayed in room 6 which was spacious, modern and immaculately clean. Looking forward to an excuse to visit again in the future.
Regards, André.

We stayed at the Dungimmon on June 26 and had a relaxing and comfortable night, then a delicious breakfast the next day. Our hosts, John and Grannie were very welcoming and gracious. I keep reading about various reviews of a number of B and B's including Dungimmon that are less than positive, but it seems almost all of them relate to late night partiers and those who do not respect other visitors peace and quiet. We all need to remember these B and B's are first homes, then places for us to stay. Fortunately our stay was perfect and our hosts were as well. The next day on the way to Meath, we took some back roads suggested by them and visited a couple of unique places much off the beaten path such as Drumlane Monastery and St. Fethlimidh in Kilmore.

Dear Wandotraveler,
Thank you so much for your lovely review, and delighted to hear you enjoyed your recent stay with us. It was kind of you to mention the less complimentary review and as you rightly say it is sometimes an odd late night reveler that can cause so much discomfort to other guests. However, the vast vast majority of our guests do show respect to their fellow guests, and those who do not are the exception, rather than the rule.

Glad you got to visit some of our wonderful pre-historic sites on route to Meath and good to see you visited some Cavan sites such as Drumlane Monastery and St. Fethlimidh in Kilmore.

Kindest Regards,
John & Grainne Deegan
