“Excellent stay with charming hosts”
Reviewed January 14, 2013 via mobile

We stayed here just before Christmas on our way to county Kerry - Cashel was a perfect half way stop. Peggy and Jim were super hosts and made us feel very welcome in their lovely home. Very well appointed bedrooms with free wifi and satellite TV. Bathroom was great - spacious and clean. Breakfasts cooked by Jim were excellent. They recommended a lovely place to eat on the second night we were there and they had lots of good suggestions for walls in the area. Daisy is the most gorgeous dog - so friendly and good natured. It would have been nice to have had tea and coffee making facilities in the rooms but Jim made us a pot of tea whenever we wanted one so we didn't really miss the hospitality tray in the bedroom. All in all a wonderful place to stay. Thank you both!

I never write reviews but every so often you come on something so good, you just feel like you should share the information.
For work reasons I was going to be in south Tipperary for a few days per week for one month. I had nothing booked when I arrived in Cashel so I found a some numbers on the internet and arranged to look at a few places. By the time I arrived at Peggy O’Neills I had already looked at a number of places but once Jim opened the door, I knew the search was over. It wasn’t just the quality of the room (which was fantastic), the thing that really strikes you is the welcoming atmosphere that permeates the house. This warm atmosphere is entirely due to Peggy and Jim. Sometimes I’ve stayed in B&B’s and I felt awkward as it sort of felt like I was intruding on the household, not so in Peggy O’Neills. I am not able to point to specific things they do that makes one feel so at home, the best way I can explain it is to say that staying with Peggy and Jim is like staying with friends.
I had an ensuite double room, the decor is modern, the bed and furniture was very comfortable, the shower was fantastic and everything was spotless. The room had sky television and excellent broadband which was very useful for catching up on e-mails, etc. Breakfast was delicious and nothing was too much trouble. For example sometimes I wanted breakfast at 6am, other times I wanted porridge rather than a cooked breakfast, and the response was always the same, ‘no problem’.
If I ever need accommodation in that part of the world again I will definitely stay there, and I would highly recommend it to others.

We tried in vain to find the B&B we had wanted to stay in and then by chance found Peggy O'Neill's. What a find! Couldn't speak more highly of Peggy and Jim who were the most charming, friendly and welcoming hosts we came across in our travels in Ireland. The room was clean, comfortable and a great night's sleep to add to the enjoyment. Breakfast was a treat, but more than the food, we had the charming company of our hosts to chat to and be on the receiving end of some great Irish humour and insight. Thanks Peggy and Jim for a wonderful stay.

We pulled in and saw a "no vacancy" sign but decided to ring the bell to at least to get directions to another B & B. Jim was sooo nice and allowed us to stay for the night there. It was very warm, clean and cozy! Daisy is the best dog ever! We walked to town for dinner and the homemade breakfast in the morning was excellent! Highly recommended.

We were in Ireland for 11 days. This was by far the best B and B we stayed at. It was clean, comforable, had a computer you could use, breakfast great, easy walking distance to main street, but the best part was our host! Peggy was not home, but her husband, Jim, did a great job. He was so friendly, helpful and Daisy the dog was sweet too.
It was also very reasonable in price.
A great place to stay!

You will travel a long way to finds hosts more friendly or accomodating than Peggy and Jim. The friendly welcome, the comfortable rooms and the superb breakfast are second to none! Set in the beautiful town of Cashel, there are numerous options for food and drink, all a stones throw from the B&B, already planning my next visit!

We really enjoyed our stay at Peggy and Jim´s B&B. They are lovely, and Daisy is very friendly and lovely as they are! The bedroom, the breakfast, the situation...everything is perfect there, and the Hoare Abbey is just behind the house (we could see it from our room!).
And the price is very reasonably.

Official Description (provided by the hotel):
Peggy O'Neill's is a charming family run bed and breakfast located on the Golden road, three minutes walk from the centre of Cashel. Peggy has been welcoming guests into her home for over a decade and she provides homely yet very comfortable accommodation and huge hearty breakfasts at a very reasonable price. Peggy's is a 3 minute walk from the centre of Cashel Town and a 10 minute walk from the Rock of Cashel.Peggy O'Neill's unique selling point is the wonderful view of Hore abbey from the back of the property. Hore Abbey (also Hoare Abbey, sometimes known as St.Mary's) is a ruined Cistercian monastery near the Rock of Cashel, County Tipperary, Republic of Ireland.'Hore' is thought to derive from 'iubhair' – yew tree. The former Benedictine abbey at Hore was given to the Cistercians by Archbishop David MacCearbhaill (in 1270), who later entered the monastery. He endowed the Abbey generously with land, mills and other benefices previously belonging to the town. The story, beloved of tour-guides, that he evicted the Benedictines after a dream that they were about to kill him, is unlikely to be true and probably arises from the Archbishop's 'interference' with the commerce of the city of Cashel. His disfavour of the established orders in Cashel certainly caused local resentment. He was resented by some of the towns-people, being considered too much in favour of the Irish by the more Anglicised. This is evident in the objection by the thirty-eight local brewers to the levy of two flagons out of every brewing and in the murder of two monks who were visiting the town. ... more   less
