Very charming and comfortable help make my trip. Enjoyed every moment. Helpful in sights to see and I would recommend to anyone to stay. Not a large town but rich in friendly helpful people. MirrIam was a delight to talk with. Oh and the bath very relaxing, what a treat at the end of the day.

We had a fantastic stay at the Old Bank in August when we were in Ireland to celebrate my husband turning 30! You are a fantastic woman and it is amazing to see that you manage to run this and at the same time have kids to take care of! Thank you for the lovely welcoming and for the advice on what pubs to visit! We will definitely come back here again! The rooms were big and beautifully decorated with super-comfortable beds and the breakfast was lovely! I wish we had stayed longer!

I loved my stay at the Old Bank B&B. Miriam was a lovely hostess who gave me very helpful tips for the rest of my trip through Ireland. I'd definitely recommend this place.

One of the coolest B&B's we stayed at during our fabulous trip to Ireland! MIriam greeted us with such joy and made me feel like family! She gave me a tour, history of home and even showed me pictures of the before and after renovations. We had a nice, quiet room for the evening. And Miriam even told us how to push our way into a real pub!! Very cool!! Breakfast was by far the best on our trip!! Her husbands meats, puddings, were the BEST!!! LOved your home and hope you get your BIG shandalere one day soon!!! God Bless you and your family!!! Hugs from Florida!!!

The rooms, and bathroom, are spacious and well appointed. Off-street parking is a great piece of mind as the streets are typically narrow. Miriam is a great hostess with a very good sense of humour. Her breakfasts are generous and very appealing. Restaurants are limited in Bruff but the Bakery is good value, and the Four Winds & Second Wind in Charleville is worth the drive. Attractions of Logh Gur and Adare are easy driving.
