Being the last week of the season the place was a little tired, but it was pleasant enough and our room was certainly big enough although the bathroom was a tight squeeze. Unfortunately I had a cold shower but our friends next door were ok so must've just been our room. The internet in our room was non-existent but was ok in the upstairs foyer. It was probably from the huge storms the week before. Breakfast was great and the stories that went with it made it even better.

This was the most memorable bnb during our trip to Ireland. Tom was so down to earth and friendly. His home was our home during our stay. The room was clean and charming. Breakfast was THE BEST...Tom made my eggs PERFECT as ordered! Very acccomodating and who doesn't love to listen to Tom tell his stories. Only sorry we had only one night here. Slainte Tom...we will always remember our stay!!

The Pond House is a nice place. A little older than the other places we stayed during our trip, but the room was spacious and clean. Tom was the friendliest host! Great stories and a great breakfast!

Beautiful bed and breakfast with wonderfully hospitable hosts! Seriously amazing. So friendly and accommodating and just a nice guy to talk with. I also loved the white cats we saw around the property, so pretty!

We enjoyed our stay at Pond House, and found it a very convenient walk to town. Our room for four sisters was charming, and overlooked the patio and gardens where we were entertained endlessly by the lovely Irish kitties. Breakfast was traditional and delicious! Tom was a wonderful story-teller and always up to a bit of delightful conversation and joking. Loved our end of June 2017 stay! Thank you, Tom!
