“My Irish Family”
Reviewed May 20, 2014

This year I spent my 18th time at Kajon House. But it is not just Kajon House - this is Kate & John - hospitality at it´s best.

Every time returning to them it´s like coming home. It is always the last night on my holidays. It is the greatest place to end the holiday in Ireland. They are incredible.

The two welcomes you as if you be a friend for years even for the first time. The start is homemade scones and cakes with a cup of tea. Followed by a great diner, because of the fantastic cooking by John. Afterwards you relaxe in the guest-lounge.

And the topping is the unforgetable breakfast with bacon, eggs, mushrooms, tomato and the best pancakes you can imagine.

If you go to Ireland you have to go to Kajon House. I´m looking forward to see these best hosts you can have again.

Thanks to Kate & John for being part of my life!

Kate and John give you a very warm welcome and we feel like coming home every time we stay at Kajon House. We got an excellent evening diner and spent some time in the lounge with it's fantastic seats. Kate and John love to meet people and talk to them. We spend always our last night with Kate and John. That is a fantastic end of the trip. After we enjoyed an excellent breakfast it was time to go home. But we will come back next year!

Kay and John are very welcoming. It's like walking in through the door of an old friend who you've not seen for years. Their place is extremely comfortable and well thought out to make a stay easy, with lots of little touches - we loved the individual electric blankets. We also had dinner with them. They obviously had lots of repeat visitors and, and collected loads of awards over the years. We can see why.

Just up the road from the ancient site at Clonmacnoise: if you're going there, don't think of staying anywhere else.

We stayed at Kajon House for two days in March of 2014 and were very happy with the room and our hosts. The bedroom and bathroom were clean and comfortable and breakfast was wonderful. We also booked dinner and had a delicious meal on both nights. Kate&John also managed to work around our daughter's food allergies just fine. All in all, we had a great time with our kind, cheerful hosts at this lovely B&B.

We did not get the pleasure of staying at Kajon House for more than a few hours but I can attest to the kindness and true goodness of it's proprietors. We got a flat tire leaving beautiful Clonmacnoise on a bank holiday. The car rental company wasn't picking up the phone and the tire iron provided didn't fit our tire and we were stuck. John came to our rescue not only finding us a tire iron but assisting with the tire change all while offering me tea and use of his telephone in his dapper well appointed kitchen. It was no surprise to find friendliness in his wonderful country but the proprietors of Kajon house go out of their way to help travelers in need. I can only imagine the kind of comfort offered to those that stay under their roof. Thank you.

We began our 15th anniversary trip here and we were not disappointed. We were there during the slow season so that made the trip even more memorable. We were able to laugh with our hosts and the food was fantastic. Come hungry because you won't want to skip a course.

After reading other reviews we were hoping we could stay there while visiting the area. Luckily, we could, and we were not disappointed. Kate and John are wonderful people and hosts. The rooms are clean and warm. And the food is great. They are really helpful if you need some suggestions things to do. The view is also very nice, we really enjoyed it while having breakfast and tea. Would definitely recommend it and would definitely stay with them again!
