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!
- 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
