This was by far our most favorite B&B that we stayed at! The Old Bank is beautifully restored by Miriam and her family. The rooms are very large, the bathrooms are as well. The beds are comfortable. The breakfast was very good. Parking in the back was perfect. Bruff is a beautiful little town that we really enjoyed.Thank you Miriam for sharing your home and all those cool stories with us! I sent you a package in the mail ♥️

Cool renovated bank right in the city. The room was large and clean, the bed comfortable and the food yummy. Check-in was not until 6 pm which I thought was a bit late.

My visit was for one nite on June 1, 2017. I found the Old Bank to be simply charming along with the hostess, Miriam. She was very helpful in the way of saving me a lot of time by "back tracking".She was most delightful and an axcellent cook! Breakfast was yummy!! A clean and comfortable B&B. Highly recommend.

Very enjoyable one night stay. I would recommend the B&B to anyone wanting to stay outside Limerick. One small negative was that the bedroom was very warm
