“Excellent B and B in the middle of Ireland”
Reviewed September 28, 2013

This a lovely B and B. Spotlessly clean great shower and an excellent breakfast. The fresh fruit salad was the best we had during our 10 day stay in Ireland! Niamh (the owner) was very helpful in providing info on restaurants, parking in town and an excellent wool shop. Yes I bought some wool and a coat from Graces. I wish I had had more space in my case to allow me buy more there!

Great B&B - actually, the best we have visited during our road trip through Ireland. The rooms are very clean and beautifully furnished. The hospitality of the owners is unmatched. Breakfast was also the best we had during our Ireland trip.
Our little son enjoyed the playground in the garden very much. The B&B is definitely recommended.

This was our fifth and best b&b in Ireland. Lovely location, beautifully decorated place. Great family/recreation room. ---very family friendly. It is evident that the owners thought of everything to make the guests feel welcome. Great Irish breakfast. Niamh the owner was a gracious hostess. A five star gem!

We stayed here at the end of August as a party of 5 in room 5 the family room. It was a great stay in a great location. The place is clean and refreshingly modern. The owners have thought of everything to make your stay welcome as they provided loads for my 2 children to do. The beds are comfortable with plenty of space in the room. The owners basically provided anything we wanted for breakfast and as i saying were really helpful. The location is excellent as it is only a few miles from Athlone and as we were cathing the ferry the next day Dublin is only really just over an hour away.
We would certainly stay here again Thanks for a great stay. The Braddick family.

We stayed at Alverna House July 29, 2013, and really enjoyed the clean, new and well-built surroundings.
Niamh was very kind and welcoming, made sure of our comfort, and gave good advice for restaurants and sightseeing.
The rooms were quiet and peaceful, and overall this lodge is a nice retreat.
Breakfast was very good, with variety for everyone.
We want to go back, SOON!!
Love you, Niamh

Our room upstairs was huge (two double beds) with 5 star fittings and furniture. We loved the stunning view over the pastures from our bedroom windows! A well balanced breakfast with lots of variety was available. Thanks so much Niamh, for a lovely stay. Andre and Gail.
