“Right at Home”
Reviewed November 17, 2011

I've had the pleasure of staying at the Ballingowan House three times now, and every time has been a wonderful experience. Carmel and Charlie are great hosts and go out of their way to make you feel right at home. On multiple occassions Carmel even volunteered to drop me into town even though it was likely an inconvenience for her. The rooms are comfortable, the breakfast is great, and the hosts are very pleasant. What more could you ask for? This is the only place you should consider staying in Newcastle West!

I stayed here with a group of friends recently. The owners were so kind and welcoming and were very helpful with regard to directions and places to eat in the area, they made us feel really at home. Breakfast was delicious and generous and the rooms were warm and clean with private bathrooms and wash hand basin. I would recommend this B&B to anybody looking for first class hospitality.

Stayed here for a funeral a few days ago with 9 of my friends ( beginning of November 2011) and I was very impressed by how welcoming and generous the owners were. The rooms were spacious and clean. The breakfast was what you'd expect from a good Irish house and by the time we left the table we were all stuffed. I'd certainly stay here again.

This was not our favorite B&B. The house was musty smelling. When you first walk in you see a dirty fishtank.
The room was small as was the bathroom. I was afraid to make tea in the dirty pot.

breakfast was average.

Carmeal was very nice

Carmel and family are the perfect hosts. The room was very reasonably priced and the overall accommodations were excellent. The breakfast was typical Irish ...filling and delicious. Easy to get to and convenient for Limerick and surrounding sites. I would never stay in a hotel when the Irish are such marvelous hosts. I have always stayed with the O'Briens when in this part of western Eire
