“Perfect Hosts with great senses of humour”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 2, 2013

Kajon House is close to the Clonmacnoise Abbey site. The hosts Catherine & John provided a very homely environment. We were welcomed with scones and coffee & departed with a gift of Catherine' superb home made scones. The room was well appointed and the bathroom quite adequate, although a little constrained. The Irish breakfast was excellent and very well presented. They had breakfast menus available in English, French, German, Hebrew & Japanese. They would be perfect hosts in a sitcom on B&Bs, not in the Fawlty Towers sense, as they are super efficient. And very funny.

We spent only one night at Kajonhouse, but even if so short, our stay was unforgettable! Our hosts were the kindest hosts ever, the room was very comfortable, with a magnificent bed heated by an electrical blanket (a blessing indeed after a day spent outside, in the cold), and the breakfast we had the day after was... unbelievable! Best breakfast ever! Our only regret was that our stay was too short!
Definitely recommended!!

Best of all: All of the 'excellent' reviews are TRUE.
PLUS: they have a very good internet connection FOR FREE!
It blew our mind that this was not mentioned anywhere: internet connection is very good. We almost dropped it from our list, but were very happy to find such warm, hospitable hosts that enjoy having people stay with them.
They are very nice and accommodating. You'll feel at home!

If you grumble about Kajon House it would be best if you stayed at home - you would probably complain to St Peter about the colour of the pearly gates. Kaths baking is great and John does excellent evening meals. He also has a brilliantly dry sense of humour.

Our visit September 7, 2012

At last Kajon House B&B! It is now a little after 7. We arrive later than planned after getting lost in the countryside...coming from Newgrange.

Our host appears and says, "It's about time!" "You were supposed to be here at 5! I apologize and jokingly tell him of our experiences...we have no Mobile, we were lost and remember this is our first day on Irish roads...He doesn't laugh! His wife Kate comes out to great us...giving me a hug and warm welcome. My husband and the couple with us begin to wonder...what have you gotten us into!

Dinner is part of our package...so you can understand why he is so upset!!!

Little did we realize that this was part of the 'gig' for the evening. We had the most wonderful time and wished we could have spent two nights...

The food was absolutely delicious. After spending three weeks in Ireland their dinner and breakfast was by far the best!

Kate and John should add to their B&B...Light Entertainment With Dinner…Plus lots and lots of laughter!!!

We sadly said our goodbyes the following morning and made our way to Clonmacnoise...before heading to Connemara. What another surprise! Clonmacnoise was more spectacular than what I had read. The site along the Shannon River gave you a sense of what life was like hundreds of years ago...the quietness and beauty made this the perfect place for a monastery.

Kajon House and Clonmacnoise is a 'must'...at least for two nights!

Thank you Kate and John for a wonderful beginning to the many adventures we had on our travels throughout Ireland...
