Customer Reviews


Dean Sewell


I would definitely recommend this B&B. Great surroundings & facilities with a personable host.

John and Martha Powers


This is a beautiful B&B, set in the amazing lake region of County Cavan. Pearl and Wilson Kells were wonderful hosts, who helped us immeasurably with our genealogy search, and gave us great tips on things to do and places to eat in the area. The grounds were beautifully landscaped, overlooking the lush countryside. The breakfasts were delicious! I highly recommend a stay there to anyone visiting the area.

Tom OReilly


The farm setting was grand. The home was perfect and the breakfast was great. The setting with the tennis, fishing and farm setting was perfect. I wish we had more time to spend. I suggest this location for at least two days. Mrs. Kells was the perfect host.
