“Wonderful as Always!”
Reviewed August 30, 2012

My mother and I just stayed at the Novara House for the 2nd time, for 5 nights. We wouldn't stay anywhere else in Mullingar. We've stayed in numerous B & Bs throughout Ireland and Margaret and Ritchie are the best hosts ever. This second stay there was like going to visit our rellies. They make you feel at home. Margaret was taking messages from my rellies and arranging dinner plans, like we were one of the family. They were always interested in hearing about our day and plans for the following day. Hope to go back again for a visit in the near future!

Very warm welcome from Margaret and Ritchie with tea and biscuits. A short walk into Mullingar with an abundance of nice restaurants and pubs. We even took part in the pub quiz at Danny Byne's!

Enjoyed our stay very much. Shame it was just for one night.

If only every b&b on our trip had been as good as Novara House! The good experience started with the first friendly contact with Margaret when we were looking for accomodation. On route she even texted us with a precise instructions how to find the b&b.
Part of the warm welcome was a nice pot of tea and bisquits.
The room and ensuite on the first floor were spacious, well equiped and very clean.
The hot breakfasts were nicely cooked and ready shorty after we sat down.

This B&B ranks among the most enjoyable on our visit to Ireland. The hosts were so friendly and helpful. Our experience in Mullingar was beautiful and our guest house was largely responsible for our positive experience. The traditional Irish breakfast was delicious and the rooms are spotless and comfortable. We have been traveling throughout Irelnad for two weeks and this B&B is our favorite. We would love to return here and spend some time with our very wonderful hosts.

Room Tip: All of the rooms are beautiful

Because we were fooled. We chose this place solely on the basis of high recommendations on Tripadvisore, and were hugely disappointed.

By comparison to other B&Bs we experienced in Ireland, Novara House is simply below average, and the most expensive at that.

Mullingar is just an ugly town, and you should never enter it unless you absolutely must.

Novara House is basically ok, but no more than that - it feels like an average Motel 6 in the 90s. The hosts are overall pleasant people, but not too helpful answering basic questions about the area.

While it might be a bit harsh to call it a bad B&B, there is absolutely no doubt whatsoever it is easy to find a much better place which will give you a much better value for your money.

What a lovely place and so convenient to walk to nearby pubs and restaurants. The room was very well appointed and such a comfortable bed. Our "traditional Irish breakfast" was tasty and plentiful. Richie and Margaret are a wealth of information about Westmeath and pointed us in the right direction for some genealogical research. I would love to visit with them in the future.
