Meet your host…

Julia O'Connor

I have been in the hospitality business since 1991 and I do enjoy meeting people and engaging in conversation. During the winter months I do a lot of walking nearby. I've also walked abroad; Grand Cayon in the U.S., Matchu Pitchu, South America, las Alpujarras, Spain and Brittany, France. I also cycle, I've completed the Ring of Kerry, cycled in Poland and France. I also cook and enjoy having people for dinner. When totally relaxed I enjoy reading and am a member of the local book club.

Jackson 6, Oct 2022: Julia and team are exceptional and what a great place to stay. Don't miss it. We only stayed 1 night and would add another on our next adventure to Ireland. The accommodations were beautiful, love the river behind and all the flowers and beautiful greenery. Breakfast was yummy but the best was the conversation and care by Julia. What fun we had and you have a exceptional B&B. Our favorite on our whole trip!

We had a wonderful stay at An Bruachan! It was our favorite stop in Ireland. Julia was a lovely host and has a wonderful sense of humor. The breakfasts were amazing (still thinking about the fruit and pancakes - and my husband’s omelette cooked just the way he likes it!) Her darling friend helps with breakfast, and between the two of them we received lots of helpful advice for day trips and things we shouldn’t miss in the area. Our room was large and comfortable and our bathroom was very clean and had everything we needed. The grounds of the house are beautiful as well. We would highly recommend a stay here and will definitely plan to return! We were truly sorry to leave.

Our stay at An Bruachan was very pleasant! Julia is a super host, her house is very nice and in a lovely place. At An Bruachan you really feel at home, a place where you know that there always will be someone to open the door and welcome you. Julia is also an excellent cook, the breakfast was delicious. We recommend An Bruachan to everyone!
