We had a lovely stay at Ave Maria. The room as very comfortable and the breakfast was delicious. Our room was cosy and had a sparkling modern bathroom. We enjoyed a good meal at the pub the owner suggested.

In July my daughter and I stayed one night at this charming B&B. It is located in a beautiful rural area. We received a warm welcome from our hostess, Mary, and immediately liked this place. Our room was comfortable and the breakfast was wonderful. Would of loved to have stayed longer to get a tour of the dairy barn. Maybe next time!

We were recommend to stay here by our Irish friend who has been staying here for years.. What a wonderful welcome from Mary and her family. My husband who is also a Dairy Farmerr in Australia was given a tour of their dairyshed which he throughly enjoyed. Mary is a lovely cook and went out of her way to spoil us.. I have special dietary needs and this was not a problem for her.. If I am every back in Ireland I would stay here again

To stay in the Ave Maria Farmhouse is an absolute joy! We arrived quite some time earlier than planned - but were welcomed by Mary Mulligan's son, even though he was very busy. Shortly daughter Virginia welcomed us with tea and homebaked goodies, the room was beautiful, bathroom facilities modern and immaculately clean. From our window we watched the cows come home from the meadows. Mary served us a superb breakfast, her and her family's friendliness gave us such a pleasant stay, we would like to repeat our visit there again. Ave Maria House absolutely recommendable.
