“Best B&B in the Republic of Ireland!”
Reviewed July 7, 2011

The property was gorgeous, but even better was the outstanding service. Our car was giving us trouble, and it was raining when we arrived, so fortunately we were able to park the car right at the front door. David and Margaret were quick to sit us in front of a cozy fire and a pot of tea. The house was impeccable and our room was charming. We had the best bath tub too! We adored the property, everyone was friendly, and the breakfast was perfectly delicious. Definitely worth the money!!!

We stayed at Foxmount House for 1 night in June 2011. We are a young couple with 2 children, ages 10 and 14 years old. This is a VERY nice place to stay. The house and grounds are beautifull!!! We had the family room for 4 people; very roomy and elegant. Nice shower, good supplies in bath. The breakfast was top notch; full irish. The dining room alone is worth a stay!! Heather has the most beautifull Irish accent; when she speaks, its like hearing music. Margaret is a regal host as well. My son, Eli ranks Foxmount amoung his top B and B's in Ireland. Treat yourself and your family and stay here when in Waterford!!!!

This beautifully appointed country house is an ideal place to stay as a base for Waterford. It has an old world charm with service to go along with it . Return after a hard days touring to tea and cakes in the family lounge is to look forward to. Excellent breakfast, charming hosts. Tip - do not use sat nav to find it will not !

We stayed here for two nights in June 2011 with our three young adult children and my parents. We had three rooms and thoroughly enjoyed Margaret and Heather's hospitality. The breakfast alone is worth the stay! A gracious home just beyond the busyness of Waterford but so perfectly situated to be able to enjoy everything. Very comfortable beds and quality linens. Harry Potter the colt was born just before our arrival. Be sure to see him with the lightening bolt on his head!

We have just arrived back in the US from our trip. We spent a night at Foxmount Country House and it was one of the highlights of our journey. I only wish we had more than one night there so we could have explored the grounds and the locale.

We arrived in the late afternoon and were greeted by Margaret. After being shown to our rooms, we were served tea in sitting room. Margaret suggested that we ride over to Dunmore East for dinner and we had a wonderful meal at the Spinaker Pub and then explore the harbor and beach there.

We awoke to a breakfast that offered choices of the traditional Irish breakfast, pancakes, french toast, and porridge. A side table held an assortment of cheeses and breads and muffins accompanied the meal. Fresh pressed coffee was provided to the two coffee drinkers and tea and juices for the others. The meal was served by Margaret's charming daughter, Heather.

I had only one minor quibble, that really had no impact on our visit. While access to the Internet is provided, it is only available in the sitting room by an ethernet connection. There is only a single cable to connect so the connection must be shared. That means as well that devices like wireless phones and IPads cannot connect. A relatively inexpensive wireless router would be a helpful addition.

We would not hesitate to return. If you are in the Waterford area, put this establishment at the top of your list.

I am sorry to have waited so long to write this review. My family of five (children 14, 13, 11) stayed at Foxmount for two nights last Easter. As a family, we have been to 16 countries and used Trip Advisor for all of our stays. I have to say that this was hands-down the best stay we have ever had. The rooms were spotless and the beds were wonderfully comfortable. Breakfast, including the famous stewed rhubarb, was fantastic. Eggs, porridge, toast, fruit, etc. There is a nice living room where you can relax by the fire after a day of traveling, and my kids loved to visit the cows, horses, dogs and calves at this working dairy farm. Our hosts were delightful and warm and I would recommend a stay at this country house to anyone.

This was our first trip to Ireland and Foxmount was our first B&B experience. Margaret is a lovely and gracious lady. She helped make our stay at Foxmount a wonderful and relaxing time. Her home is beautiful, the bedroom was very comfortable, breakfast was exceptional, and the grounds were breathtaking. We stayed at other B&B's during our time in Ireland and my husband and I agree Foxmount was by far THE BEST!
