“Beautiful Setting”
Reviewed September 21, 2008

I booked my stay at Murphy's farmhouse based on reviews I had read. My room was lovely, very comfortable and roomy. The bathroom was tiny. Sitting on the toilet my knees touched the wall. Could not be claustrophobic and use that bathroom.
I could not get anyone to answer the door when I arrived. I rang the bell and knocked numerous times. Finally, I called on my cell phone and told her I was standing in her hallway.
The owner furnished tea and cookies when I arrived. That was a nice treat on a rainy day.
The breakfast was standard and the service was pleasant. I did not see the owner again after I checked in.

Murphy's Farmhouse is so called because it is a huge old farmhouse that has been converted into a B&B with loads of rooms.

The rooms are comfortable with showers ensuite. As the building is old, the floors and staircase creak but that adds to the charm.

The menu for breakfast was vast as were the delicious breakfasts themselves.

Booltens is a small village - if you blink, you might miss it. But it does have 2 pubs - one, the Anvil Bar is very quaint and has delicous pub food. We didn't go into the other called Murphy's.

When we first pulled up to this beautiful, large farmhouse, we saw a big bus in front of it and thought we had no chance of getting the 3 rooms we needed, but decided to ask anyway. We were so thrilled that they had 3 ensuite rooms available for the 6 of us. They said the bus was actually a school bus that Mrs. Murphy's son drives and not a tour bus at all even though it looked like a tourbus. Mrs. Murphy gave us tea and cookies right away. We were so excited later that evening when her adult son let us watch him put the cows and bull up for the evening and showed us where they were milked twice a day and told us interesting stories about the cows. We all slept well and appreciated that each room had so many extras.
The breakfast was great! We loved staying here and have decided that farmhouse B & B's are the best!

  • Liked — nice rooms, loved the cows right out front, being given refreshments on arrival, great breakfast
