Meet your host…

Christina Byrne

Hi I am Chris your host. I have thoroughly enjoyed sharing my home with guests from all over the world for many years. I love to cook. I bake Irish soda bread and scones daily as well as making preserves from the fruits of my garden.The Slieve Blooms and Lough Boora Parklands are excellent for walking and I know them very well as I get out there to explore the trails regularly.I play traditional Irish music on Wednesday nights in one of the local pubs and often take my guests along.

Ardmore House in Kinnitty was very beautiful on the outside with beautiful grounds & flowers. Chris, Owner greeted us with hot tea and small sweet muffins. She was very friendly and gave us suggestions on places to visit and eat while there. Two of the best suggestions which you must try while staying at this B&B.. Kinnitty Castle & Hotel....and Slieve Mountain Bar. We ate dinner in the Dungeon Bar at the Castle...then walked along the back river bank behind the castle...beautiful! The local Slieve Mountain Bar was the highlight of our trip where Chris along with other locals gathered that evening for a "session" of all ages. Fiddles, whistles, guitars, banjos, drums, accordions all playing Irish. Celtic 🎶 music. Amazing good time!!! And just in walking distance of the Ardmore House B & B. Each morning Chris cooked a nice breakfast made to order for each of us. We had Bedroom Suite #1 with our own private shower/bathroom. The only thing stopping me from giving Ardmore House a 10 was the bed. The mattress was extremely uncomfortable and lumpy. A memory foam topper would be helpful. The top covers were great and warm. Yes...I would absolutely recommend & return again to the Ardmore House should we make a return trip to Ireland!

Our stay at Ardmore House was exceptional! Chris was very accommodating with breakfast times and delicious menus. Her home is very comfortable and she is quite knowledgeable about any areas in Ireland you want to visit. Her home has it’s own interesting history. Kinnitty is a very friendly town located in the Slieve Bloom mountains which is a beautiful drive. Highly recommend
