“Beautiful Scenery-Gracious Hosts”
Reviewed July 16, 2013

We spent one night at this bed and breakfast on our way from Galway to Belfast. We knew nothing of the area-only that is was about an hour from Belfast. We were very pleasantly surprised. The hosts Elizabeth and Larry were so welcoming. Larry gave us so much good information about the area-including about St. Patrick's Church-which we didn't even know was in the area until he told us. The house was beautiful and the room was very comfortable. The breakfast was plentiful and delicious! If ever I was in the area again I would definitely stay there again. One warning though-the town nearby is very small and the restaurants close very early. I would just keep that in mind and maybe bring snacks and sandwiches if arriving after 6pm. Thanks for having us Nugents!

Our stay here was one of the highlights of our first ever visit to Northern Ireland. Liz and Larry are wonderful hosts. You truly are made to feel as welcome guests in their home. Larry is delightful; he regaled us with his stories and we loved it when he invited us join him when he went to herd the cattle...plus we got a tour of the cow barn area. He also was very helpful and made calls to get information to help us find where our ancestors lived (a town that no longer exists). The house is well restored and in a very pastoral, peaceful setting. We were quite comfortable staying there. The sheep graze in the large front lawn...so when we woke in the morning and looked out the window we could see them. Even though Dundrum House is in the country, it is centrally located. We stayed two nights and could have stayed longer. Would definitely stay here again if I travel to Northern Ireland again.

Room Tip: we enjoyed a room upstairs at the front of the house, so we could look out on the front yard and see...

This was the only B and B we stayed in on a week long tour of NI and we had just as much fun as swanky hotels (although these were great too) Liz and Larry just have the knack and it works from the first minute - bit like "they like to like people therefore people like them" Great pity that we were in a rush and only there one night but we will go back. Try Basil Shiels for food guinness and the craic.

Room Tip: Views of the farmyard if the working farm appeals or views of the beautiful countryside if preferred...

My father, husband and I stayed here for 3 nights last Oct. It was our launching place to see Belfast, The Giant's Causeway, Derry/Londonderry & do family research. The house is beautifully restored and our hosts were gracious and accommodating. Larry is an absolute kick in the pants. He had us laughing everyday with his jokes and fantastic stories. The setting is peaceful and gorgeous. Breakfast was made to order and delicious! We would stay here again in a heartbeat. Given the fact we actually located distant family members, we hope to see Dundrum House and it's family again soon!

We stayed here for one night. Liz and Larry were extremely friendly and helpful, including providing ideas on what to do the next day. There was plenty of parking available. My boyfriend said that it was the best Irish breakfast we had during the whole trip. I asked for eggs and they offered to make them anyway I wanted, including poached. That was a plus for me! I wish we stayed in the main house. We had a room in the self catering section of the b and b (it actually isn't self catering anymore, but it's set up to be that way.) We stayed on the first floor and could hear every footstep from the people above us. There was a shared space (small kitchen/living room) right outside of our door, and there was someone reading the paper (crinkling the paper loudly) and then fell asleep, loudly snoring. It prevented us from having a good night's sleep. The bed was on the small size, which we were completely ok with ... we didn't need anymore room than what we had.

Room Tip: See my comment above ... try to stay in the main house!

My wife and I visited here from Connecticut, USA with my sister-in-law from Switzerland and their cousins from Auckland, New Zealand. We were researching family history, since all the cousins grandmother had lived in this area before emigrating to New Zealand, early in the 20th century. Larry and Liz were wonderful hosts. He knew the area and helped us find the family farms, where they had lived in the 18th and 19th century. He also gave us a wonderful tour of his farm and we saw a calf which had just been born an hour before. He and Liz gave us wonderful full English breakfasts and came and chatted with us often if we had any questions and made coffee or tea for us in the evening. The accommodations were wonderful and we spent a great 4 days here. They are really charming and genuine hosts, really lovely people. It was our first trip to Northern Ireland and this is a great place to spend a few nights.

Room Tip: We stayed in the 2nd floor of the main house, which was quiet. Our room had two double beds, ideal f...

Liz and Larry are very welcoming and fun to be around! Larry says the house itself which has been restored, and in which he was born, dates back to 1720. It is on a working farm in the most beautiful setting about 40 minutes south of Belfast-we stayed there on our way from Belfast to Dublin. Breakfast in the restored dining room is wonderful and is the standard "full Irish Breakfast". There is a little restaurant/bar down the lane-you can walk from the house-a beautiful rural setting! We would go back!

Room Tip: Ask for one of the rooms in the front of the house-the views are beautiful!
