The hosts were very gracious and friendly. We appreciated their recommendations for local attractions (with coupons!) that made our stay way better than if we'd explored on our own. Staff was very kind and accommodating to one of our group who became ill. Athlone! What a find!

This was our first B&B in Ireland and we could have just stayed here the whole time! The family was so amazing to us and the breakfast was an AMAZING introduction to Ireland. Could not have met more friendly people. They told us where to go in town and it was a very short drive or even a walk. The food and drink options in this small town were a blast. We will come back here for sure.
