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.

My wife would probably write a much longer review, but I'll keep it to the point. Our stay at The Old Bank was one of our favorites on our trip. Miriam was very pleasant and helpful. She has quite a sense of humor as well. The room was great and even had a fan, which was perfect for a couple that likes sleeping with a slight breeze. Miriam gave us some wonderful ideas on places to visit, which was great since we came to Ireland without an itinerary. She also allowed us the pleasure of meeting two of her children who were very courteous and friendly. I'd definitely recommend staying here if you find yourself in the area as we did! Thanks Miriam!

One of our most wonderful accomodations during our roundtrip through Ireland. Miriam is such a nice host. We fell like at home with her.

Marion was a fabulous hostess - we arrived on a Sunday evening and she arranged dinner for us at a local restaurant on very short notice - just one example of her comprehensive service to her guests ! Room was great and location worked for us as a good and quiet stop on the route from Drogheda to the Ring of Kerry.
