“Happened Upon This Treasure.”
Reviewed June 13, 2013

We went to Cong because we are Quiet Man fans. We were walk ins to Michaeleen's Manor, but they were full and they referred us to Nymphsfield House. We were fortunate they had a room for us, it was late and we just went to bed. The room was very cozy with very comfortable beds for two very tired travellers. In the morning we were greeted by Mary, who's disposition was a bright as the sun shining in the dining area. This was to be our first bed and breakfast of many on our month long trip through Ireland, Scotland, France and Portugal. What a way to start. We enjoyed a very delicious and true Irish breakfast. We enjoyed our brief stay in Cong, the people and the sights were wonderful.

We really enjoyed getting in the room early. The room was bright with a great sitting chair. Mary enjoyed relaxing in the chair with the sun and a light breeze. Excellent breakfast, and an enjoyable host to talk with about the local community and Ireland.

My husband and I stayed in Nymphsfield House on the 3rd of May as we were attending a wedding nearby in Lisloughrey Lodge. We were given a very warm welcome by Mary the owner. The room was spotless and like a "home away from home". Mary was extremely helpful in all our requests and nothing was a problem. The breakfast was fantastic, lots of information on things to see and do in Cong. As we were going to a wedding we did not get to see much in Cong, but we will definitely return another time and will certainly stay here again. Cannot recommend this B & B enough, so friendly, clean, homely, good food and just top class. Thanks Mary for a great service. Sandra & Damien

We have often met my husband's family in Ireland and have had the pleasure of all staying at the very charming Nymphsfield House. I cannot count the number of times we have been there and each time has been better than the last. There is always an update, from flat screen televisions to the decor. Mary and Gerry Hynes have hosted many wonderful visits. The rooms are immaculate and well appointed. The common area at the head of the stairs has been the scene of many warm and wonderful visits. My husband and his brothers talk about Mary's breakfasts for weeks before and after our trips. The location is great for walking around Cong and the Ashford Castle. It's an easy drive from Ballinrobe for the experience of a larger town. Mary and Gerry have set the bar very high for any other B & B.

Situated close to the Cong (just around the corner), this is a lovely place to stay. The accommodation was clean and comfortable and very reasonably priced. Mary was extremely helpful and friendly and provided a breakfast second to none - thank you.
I will definitely go back there when in the area.

recently myself and my partner stayed at Nympsfield for 2 nights. When we arrived we were warmly greeted by Mary the proprietor. Tea and cake was produced in the twinkle of an eye and then we were shown to our very well appointed bedroom. It was spotlessly clean and wonder of wonders it had a new flatscreen television that actually worked. There was plenty of information laid out about the local area and attractions and a very nice touch was that in the landing area was a water cooler. Very handy for the morning after the night before. Breakfast was top-class and certainly if we are ever in this area again I would be absolutely delighted to avail of this most welcoming of houses and family.

Recently i had the pleasure of staying at Nymphsfield House B/B. On arrival I was met by Mary Hynes who with her husband Gerry run this fine establishment. The welcome was warm and friendly.....invited in for tea and the most "mouth watering" fruit cake.

The rooms are of the highest quality with all mod cons and very comfortable. The "Full Irish Breakfast " is a delight.....will certainly set you up for the day ahead.

This B/B is really a home from home and would be highly recommended.
