We just stayed one night at Margarets gorgeous B and B and booked the 2 rooms.
The beds were very comfortable, tea coffee facilities, luxurious towels. Margaret and Denis are lovely people and Margaret looked after our every need. The B and B is in a gorgeous location and would love to explored a bit more if it had not been raining. A perfect little play room was available for the kids which kept them happy. We were treated to delicious full Irish breakfast in Margarets lovely home the following morning. Would highly recommend and would love to return again one day. Thank you Margaret and Denis
Spent two night here it was absolutely brilliant! In a really beautiful location, really enjoyed seeing the horses and sheep it was very peaceful and relaxing with unbelievable hosting..felt so welcome from the moment we arrived! The food was delicious, Margaret is a superb cook, constantly filling the glasses! Will definitely be back soon..thanks so much for a wonderful time
We stayed for 2 nights at Beechlawn B&B and would like to say what a pleasure it was. Margaret has high customer service focus and made us feel welcome the minute we arrived. The breakfast was a delight, with little touches that wouldn't be out of place in a 5 star hotel, but made it so much than just a cooked breakfast. The beds were really comfortable and the bedding of the highest quality; needless to say we all had the perfect nights sleep. I would go back in heartbeat and recommend it to anybody looking for an exceptionally good value for money overnight stay in Kildare.
We had a wonderful stay at this beautiful b&b. The room is really lovely, ultra comfy beds and lots of space. The facilities were great too. The owners are fabulous, so friendly and helpful, they really made our stay extra special! The breakfasts are delicious too. Thank you so much for our stay, I’d recommend it to anyone wanting to stay in Kildare, especially if your are visiting the National Irish Stud or Kildare shopping village as they are very easily accessible from here.
We were met by Margaret and shown to our room. The door on the room was an actual stable door with a padlock. The room had a double and single bed. There were three small frosted windows which resulted in very poor natural light.There were no bedside tables and a very large wardrobe with a lot of the owners clothes in it. The bathroom was of adequate size with a large multi jet shower. The shower had dust around the entrance and there were numerous half used shower gels, shampoo etc. We were unable to use the shower the next morning so we asked Margaret for some assistance. The problem appeared to be a tripped switch which Margaret could not fix, she took little interest and to quote said "sh*t happens". She did offer us the use of the shower in the room next door. This was not a solution as the guest had just checked out and the en-suite had not been cleaned. Margaret did not offer to clean it before our use. We felt a little awkward going in for breakfast as we felt Margaret did not have a very good customer service attitude. There was no apology about the shower. Breakfast was good. However at €120 a night we were left disappointed by our experience and will not return.
My husband and I stayed at Beechlawn for only three nights, but that was enough for us to feel totally 'at home', and really sad when we had to leave.
Never before have we met hosts like Margaret and Denis - so warmly friendly and generous, with nothing too much trouble. We didn't feel like paying guests; rather, we felt like old friends.
We stayed in the Barrow room, and were amazed at how well it was presented - beautifully furnished, exceptionally clean and fresh, with everything we could possibly need, including a lovely basket of fresh fruit and the most delicious biscuits. The bed was large and very comfortable - we slept very well.
We were lucky enough to arrive as Margaret was preparing soup, and she invited us into her lovely kitchen to have some. It was delicious, and accompanied by lovely homemade soda bread. I wish I'd asked for the recipes.
Breakfasts were wonderful, with so much variety of homemade breads, jams, cereals, cheese, gorgeous yoghurt and fruit and, of course, full mouth-watering Irish with black and white pudding (we can't get good black or white pudding in Canada, so that was a real treat).
We were free to wander about the farm, so we took an after breakfast walk through the fields to see some amazing views. It took about an hour and well worth the time.
I've read the other reviews here, and have to say I echo every good thing they say. Beechlawn will be the only option for us if we ever visit the area again.
Margaret and Denis, we want to thank you very much indeed for a wonderful stay and, Margaret, I finished the Graham Norton book you gave to me. A good read - what a surprise!
Absolutely fantastic accommodation with a your own entrance and every little thoughtful detail catered for, from shower & bath gels, hand creams, to bottle of water in your rooms & lovely fluffy towels to name a few. This is a spotless 5 star B&B & Margaret and Dennis are the most generous of hosts. Upon arrival we were offered some wonderful home made soup and made to feel right at home. I asked ahead of arrival if they would accept my little dog Ziggy and whilst understandably not allowed in the bedrooms, there was a warm stable awaiting him. However upon arrival Ziggy received a 5 star upgrade to Margaret and Dennis's own home keeping their own little dog Coco company. How amazing was that? Not everyone would do this and this is what makes Beechlawn so special. Nothing is too much trouble. An amazing breakfast followed the next morning with home made scones, & bread with every jam you could think of, cereals to choose from, fresh fruits and yogurts and of course Margaret's famous "Full Irish" from their award winning local butchers. We stayed for 2 nights and left as great friends. Margaret and Dennis you truly ROCK! You are the most amazing of hosts and thank you from myself Mary Rose, George, Ann, John & not forgetting Ziggy. We promise we will be back and look forward to seeing you both again soon. Thank you again for a wonderful stay and looking after us all like family. xxx
