Charming location, house and host! We stayed here the 2nd & 3rd nights of our trip- unfortunately for the rest of the places we stayed- as nothing compared to Lough Bishop.

My wife and 10 year old son and I recently had the pleasure of ending our 12 day trip to Ireland with a 2-night stay at this wonderful B&B. After staying in the gamut of accommodations (from Hilton to "guesthouse" to authentic B&B) we had had a chance to sample the possibilities before we arrived.

After traversing narrow, windy, rural roads on the Ring of Kerry and other areas, and navigating the crowded bustling streets of Galway and Limerick, it was a relief to find ourselves in this beautifully restored old farmhouse, hosted by the Kellys who could not have been more welcoming and hospitable. Aside from their knowledge of the area and the fireside chats in the sitting room, we were enthralled by the place itself and in reviewing their photos of the extensive (to say the least!) restoration project.

The entire establishment was absolutely perfect. Lovingly decorated, clean and tidy, and beautifully restored, it was a great way to unwind before having to head into Dublin and fly back to Southern California. The breakfast was just right and their recommendations for things to do and see nearby were very helpful. Our son was especially enamored of the farm life all around us, the animals, the garden and the greenery in general.

We would highly recommend Lough Bishop House to anyone looking for an authentic B&B with owners who care deeply about being true hosts and a setting that is idyllic and widely undiscovered. A delight!

  • Liked — The hospitality.
  • Disliked — Somewhat too isolated.

We stayed at this B&B in late October 2005. The B&B is the upper storey of a completed renovated and modernized 18th century manor house. (Ask to see the photos of the renovation.) Our room overlooked the sheep and horse pastures. The farm is operating, and has chickens, Irish draught horses (prize-winning), and lots of sheep! The personable owners, Helen and Christopher, are more than happy to show you around. The food is excellent. Helen prepares traditional Irish breakfasts, using eggs from her free-range chickens, and fresh produce from her garden and orchard (in season). We also recommend you stay for dinner at least one night. The web site is (---)
