Abbey House
Ranked #5 of 8 Boyle B&B and Inns
Reviewed February 2, 2014

My son and I spent a lovely couple of days at Christine and John's Abbey House. The B&B was very easy to find since its adjacent to the Boyle Abbey-just follow the tourism signs. Christine greeted us warmly and showed us about her home. John carried on a good conversation and looks just the the photo of his Dad in the sitting room. Yes, the house is old, but that's part of its charm. Its not far from the quaint town of Boyle. I suggest taking the numbered walking tour of town and learning its history. Maureen O'Sullivan, Jane of Tarzan movies, was born there. Also make sure to have the Salmon and scrambled eggs for breakfast. They were Delicious!

My husband and I based ourselves at Abbey House while we toured the west coast of Ireland.
I can not recommend our time there highly enough. Helpful, attentive and no request a problem.
Some great Irish hospitality. John and Elaine.

This was a really unusual and beautiful old house. Furnished in High Victoriana -wonderfully atmospheric and very clean and comfortable. It is in the grounds of the Abbey and a river runs through the pleasant gardens. Our host was a nice helpful man -with an amusing line of banter while serving breakfast. The house is spacious and we could come and go as we pleased or sit in the drawing room sipping tea - a la Downton Abbey - if we wished.
Delicious, generous breakfast, free wifi, quiet setting. Highly recommend this lovely house.

Room Tip: All the rooms are quiet because of the secluded setting. Both our rooms had ensuite bathrooms. Some...

Abbey House is located just beside the Boyle Abbey in a beautiful location by the river Boyle. The exterior looks really fine but interiors need an extensive renovation. The owner is a nice woman, there is free wifi connection and breakfast is good. With a good renovation it could really be a wonderful place to stay.

This very cool guest house is on the grounds of the Boyle Abbey, which is fantastic all by itself! It's also right on the Boyle River in a beautiful setting. Christine and her son were wonderful hosts. The rooms were spacious, clean and the breakfast delicious. Would highly recommend this as a place to stay!

Christine's hospitality is second to none and she made our stay wonderful. The Cottage we stayed in was adjoined to Boyle Abbey and was right next to Boyle River, a wonderful base to tour this part of Ireland. With Free Wi-Fi and Soarview we had much to keep us busy on a Rainy day, when it is dryer i must recommend Lough Key a fantastic place with Borda Borg (basically the Crystal Maze) and fantastic views.

The cottage was lovely, not the most spacious but then we were able to use the B&B. Plus we were only using it as a business base to tour around schools. We always felt welcome and nothing was too much bother. My only issue was the shower could have been more powerful, however i am splitting hairs with this criticism and would definitely return in the future!

If you pristine clinical surrounding as provided by the popular hotel chains then Abbey House might not suit you. If on the other hand, you appreciate a fine old house, beautiful furniture and character by the bucket load then go and stay there. John and Christina are great hosts and characters in their own right. Nothing was too much trouble and the fact that John forgot to "sneek into our room to put in a new light bulb while we were out" just added to the charm. The tea and biscuits on arrival were much appreciated after a hard day's cycling.
