“Best B&B around!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 27, 2011

This wonderful B&B is set in beautiful surroundings where there are horses and a little donkey in the fields! Its charming, and I especially enjoyed the round table breakfast as there was great chat with everyone exchanging travel stories, and anecdotes. It was wonderful to have this kind of banter over breakfast before setting off on the day. This was traditional irish hospitality at its best, and I loved the personal service. Mrs Kent is a wonder and I thought Heather was absolutely delightful. They couldn't be more helpful, and the Irish breakfast was the best I have ever tasted. This is not for people who prefer impersonal service, or privacy, it is for people who want to meet the locals and share experiences of Irish warmth and hospitality.

We loved it and are busy trying to come up with reasons/excuses to be in Waterford in the near future, so we can stay there again.

Very impressive grounds and exterior are matched by a lovely interior and the warm greeting you receive from Margaret Kent, whose picture must surely appear in some dictionaries when defining the word "elegant". Margaret's daughter-in-law, Heather, is similarly lovely, helpful and enthusiastic, and the breakfast they lay on is delicious (highlight: the scones).

A working farm as well as a hotel, Foxmount has three dogs, all of whom gave us a friendly welcome! The little Jack Russell, Daisy, had a look of sheer bliss on her face when we tickled her tummy. The little softy.

It's great. Highly recommended.

We stayed for a couple of nights. Excellent accomodation and breakfast.

Only quibble is that it would be nice to have a kettle and drinks in the bedroom.

I've just seen the review about the spider - what do people expect in the country!!

We really wanted to love this place, but it was just not quite all there for us. The owners and their daugher in law were very friendly. The rooms are sort of an "old" elegance, lace and such decorate the beds and counters. There is no tea/coffee in the room, and the water they provided looked like it was probably well water based on the off-color.

Breakfast is at one large table for everyone, which my husband and I weren't really thrilled about. It wasn't very good for private conversations. Also, the owner's daughter in law was in the room the entire time, which was good if you wanted to talk to her the entire time, but made it hard to have a conversation between the two of us.

Be sure to get more detailed driving directions than the ones they originally give you. This place is about 15 minutes outside of waterford, and google maps does not place it correctly.

Lastly, we had a huge spider in our tub in the morning! When I told the owners, they laughed and said they just come up the drain. No one even went up to take care of it. I will not stay there again simply because I cannot stomach the thought of this spider just coming up through the drain like that while i'm sleeping. No thanks.

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 !
