“SIX STAR HOSPITALITY”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 7, 2012

Five stars is not adequate to describe the warmth and welcome we received at Millstream House, the excellend and plentiful home cooked food and Jim's bottomless tea and coffee pots. Spotless accommodation and information on local tourist attractions. Visitors are not guests but friends and Norah and Jim endeavour to create a home from home. Thank you both and may your stars twinkle brightly for many years.
Kathleen and Arthur Wood.

It quickly became obvious that charming hosts Nora and Jim Sheahan are not in the B&B game for the money, but for the pleasure of providing hospitality. Upon arrival I was greeted with warmth and friendliness, and a plate of ham and tomato sandwiches made with Nora's delicious home-made bread. Followed by freshly baked apple tart, with lashings of cream. My goodness! This B&B has to be experienced to be believed. It has to be one of the best in Ireland. As the governator says, "I'll be bock" !
Best wishes Nora & Jim, from Kilian

We have been visiting Listowel every year now, for the past four or five years, and always stay with Nora and Jim Sheahan at Millstream House. The house itself is immaculate, with lovely views across the coutryside, and sometimes cows right outside your window! Nora's cooking is a delight, and you certainly won't go hungry with her selection of home-made apple-pies and cakes. Special mention should also go to Jim, who makes an excellent cup of tea!

I would thoroughly recommend Millstream House to anyone wishing to visit this amazing part of Ireland!

Somebody else has headed their review as “Best B&B in Ireland” and I certainly would not argue with that! The quality of the cuisine is unbelievable – if anyone wants a genuine sample of the best of Irish food, then this is the place to go. The best of fresh, high quality ingredients brought together by a rare cooking talent into even higher quality traditional and new dishes. The only thing that matches the quality of what you can expect to eat is the kindness and helpfulness of the hosts, Nora and Jim Sheahan – nothing is too much trouble for them. All in all, if you are ever thinking about visiting Listowel, then staying at Millstream House will make your visit well worth-while.

A friend and I completed a charity cycle through Ireland in August 2011 in aid of Enable Irealnd. We would like to thank the Owner,Nora for her kindness and generosity in supporting us and providing us with a complimentary room during our stay in Listowel. Nora's baking skills are extremely good,lovely fresh apple tart and cake upon arrival:-) And the breakfeast was good to! We were provided with a lovely spacious,comfortable room with ensuite! Very clean place. Located inn a very quiet area. You can either relax in the conservatory area or go in and have a great chat with Nora over a cuppa and take a look at her impressive art work! A really lovely woman who provides a great place to stay in Listowel!

We were looking for a family room and a B&B that would accept young children and we came across Millstream House. Nora and Jim Sheahan, the owners, made us all feel very welcome. We were warmly welcomed into their home with homemade soda bread, homemade apple pie, homemade choux buns and cups of tea and coffee. The room and beds were comfortable and warm. We had a fantastic choice for breakfast and could have easily sat at Nora and Jim's table all day. You will not regret staying at Millstream House - you are made to feel at home.
