Foxmount Country House
Ranked #4 of 24 Waterford B&B and Inns
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed July 20, 2013

Staying at Foxmount Country House is not only a treat, it's a reminder of values many have left behind. Margaret and David have been living at Foxmount for 49 years and they are very proud of their working farm as well they should be. A foal was born three weeks ago and we watched him imprint his mother's ways out in a private pasture. Tea and breads when you arrive; the rooms are great and the breakfast is outstanding! Heather, their daughter-in-law, not only takes your order but serves you while Margaret cooks in the kitchen. The eggs are from the farm, raspberries were freshly picked one morning, the orange juice is also freshly squeezed as well; in fact, everything is fresh. We stayed three nights and it is quiet at night, secluded if you want privacy, and Jack Meade's pub is walking distance if you want to experience the locals in Passage East. But the best surprise is the porridge! This is not your everyday oatmeal. This is special, authentically Irish, and there is some magic to it but you'll have to stay at the Foxmount to find out what it is. A great stay, definitely recommend it and we look forward to returning soon.

Room Tip: There are only four rooms so book early. The Bluebell is the biggest I think and can sleep four.

My husband and I have just returned from our first visit to Ireland and for once I excelled myself on our choice of where to stay.
We turned up from the Ferry to Foxmount Manor some 6 hours before check in and having not had any sleep all night, were whisked away to the Drawing room by David and brought freshly made scones and Tea by Margaret.
Five minutes later to our surprise we were taken into the Dining room and given a four course breakfast.
We had asked beforehand if we could leave our cases somewhere secure and to our dismay after breakfast our room was ready.(Incredible as they had been fully booked the night before).
We stayed a week and could have stayed all year ( although we would have outgrown all our clothes)
All produce, is from the gardens which were amazing. Bread and Scones freshly everyday
We had a glass of wine or two in the grounds dreaming of what it must be like to own a place like this during our stay.
Margaret, David and Heather could not do enough for you.
We will return next year with our dogs now the excellent kennel facilities are up and running.
We were 10 minutes by car from most amenities Waterford, Beach etc.
Wi fi was included and no problem in the Sun room.
Our bedroom was large with a bath and shower over with plenty of luggage space and two arm chairs looking out of the grounds.
Margaret put fresh flowers from the garden in the room at least 3 times during our stay.
It was these little touches that made this the best place we have ever stayed.

One of the most lovely experience we had in Ireland, and we had many. I wish we could have stayed longer. We were only there for one wonderful night. Beautiful rooms in a very tranquil country setting. An easy drive into Waterford and a short distance from good restaurants, particularly the Strand Inn, which was recommended by Heather, Margaret's daughter-in-law. Great location for exploring southeast Ireland and particularly the Waterford area. Margaret Kent, the owner, could not have been more gracious; she treated us a longlost friends or family. Beautiful decoration, lovely breakfast, wonderful hostesses - Margaret and Heather - a beautiful way to experience Ireland. Could not recommend it more highly.

Room Tip: We had the Fuschia room, lovely.

I stayed at Foxmount my first night in Ireland and had a fantastic experience. In fact, Foxmount encompasses all the qualities that one expects in a true B&B experience. When we arrived Margaret graciously welcomed us and showed us to our room, which had the most comfortable bed I slept in during our 8 nights in Ireland. As everyone has mentioned the breakfast was spectacular (I recommend the drunken raisins, scones, and the ability to sit back, relax, and take it all in) and Margaret and her daughter-in-law made us feel welcome and truly relaxed. As other reviewers have mentioned, it is a little bit out of town, but that is why I selected it. If you want to take in the Irish countryside and have a truly authentic experience this is for you. My only regret is that we did not stay another night.

Unfortunately, we had only one evening here. Our group of 6 from the US arrived and were greeted by Margaret who showed each couple to their rooms. They were superb. While we took a walk through her garden, she prepared tea and muffins. Breakfast was very nice. Probably one of the best we had on our trip (and our group are a bunch of foodies). Heather, her daughter, was very personable and serve us well. If you are in the Waterford area, this is a must stay.

Room Tip: All the rooms were bright and cheery. It was one of the best night's sleep during our 9 days in...

We stated there with our dogs for 2 nights. Rooms are large, beds well aired and comfortable and breakfast is just lovely. Dogs stay in a well build outhouse. Wifi in the lounge only. Taxi into Waterford centre is around €12.

This is a beautiful old farm manor house, and had family pictures adorning the walls that gave the house a wonderful ambiance. They served a very, very nice breakfast and all of the family who works there made our trip much more enjoyable. The only thing even remotely negative I can say about this B&B is that it's out of the way, and a little difficult to find. The fact that we didn't know where the heck we were going didn't help, either, but I would highly recommend this B&B to anyone in that section of Ireland. Margaret, the owner, is a delightful person who went out of her way to make us feel at home.
