We checked into the B&B and was shown to our room.....It was damp and musty.....the grounds and house didn’t look like the pictures.....the internet didn’t work....the common area was an enclosed front porch that wasn’t very nice or very clean.....we gave her our voucher but left and paid for a room in a different place that night. The information about the Knockawn Wood on your website was very misleading. I think your tourist board rating was very deceiving as well.

We were greeted by Mary and immediately felt welcomed. We had tea and a scone upon our arrival, which no other B&B offered scone- a very nice touch. The room was a little tight but more than adequate for our stay. The bed had a warming blanket and it was very cozy. They offered suggestions for dinner places nearby. Breakfast was plenty for getting our day started. I would recommend Knockawn Wood and stay there again. Thank you!

Our first B&B in Ireland. Beautiful area. Easy to find. Rooms are good. Roomy enough and nice to have showers in your room. Breakfast was good and the host was wonderful. She was great to provide information and tips for our visit. Parking was the only thing that was tight but she knew how to make it work. Very enjoyable.

The host was nice and very helpul but food was not that good: no fresh eggs and two poor slices of bacon... Nothing compared to other Irish B&Bs I've stayed at!
