Miriam was fabulous and so helpful. The B&B is beautifully renovated and our room was spacious. Private breakfast tables which was a treat for us. Not many surrounding restaurants but those that are there are excellent. Perfect location for day tripping. The nicest B&B we stayed at during our trip.

Go for the accommodations. Stay for the Hostess! By far the best B&B experience in our week long stay in Ireland. We are probably spoiled for the rest of our traveling life. The B&B is beautifully restored with a cozy lobby. Our room was spacious and the en suite bath had a deep jacuzzi tub, large mirror, bathrobes, and even rose petals on the bed. Well worth going out of your way to stay here. Miriam is right out of central casting; she gets the Oscar for best supporting character in the story of our stay. She is charming, funny, inviting and endearing. We wanted to take her home with us as a souvenir. In a world of over inflated ratings on these on-line services, we wish we could give her B&B a sixth star.

Absolutly a must! This was the BEST b&b hands down! You will not be sorry. The Old Bank is beautiful,delicious and Miriam is so helpful with recommendations. Had a lot of privacy at this b&b since its so large. They did an amazing job renovating,nicer then most five star hotels! Great pubs in walking distance, wish we had stayed longer.

I stay away on business quiet alot and never really know what to expect from a B & B but "The Old Bank" was the very best of my week away. Miriam was a good host and my room was very comfortable and the jacuzzi bath was a first for me. My room was spacious though the floor plan suggested it was the smallest in the B & B. If you need a B & B in the area, this is the place to stay

Unique and beautiful B&B. Located in a town so able to walk to area things. Our room had a beautiful, wooden canopy bed. Owner was funny, hard working, and very helpful. Excellent breakfast menu.
