After visiting Clonmacnoise, we came across this lovely B+B by chance and stayed there. The friendliness and welcome we got was fantastic. On arrival we were offered a coffee and we had a chat. Brian suggested a nice place to eat nearby (the Old Fort) wirthin walking distance which was good and then suggested a night in Killeens which had music and friendly banter..Killeens Pub should be on everyones itinerary as it has great charm and is timeless.
At Ely House our room was large and comfortable, nicely decorated and had Tv, bathroom and tea and coffee. Free Wifi was included. There was a vast array of books available which we perused at our leisure. Breakfast was delicious and vast! Their homemade brown bread was gorgeous and the choice of options was expansive. We would recommend anyone staying near Clonmacnoise to stay here. We can't wait to visit again
