We were completely at home in Norma's beautiful B&B. Her home is on a working dairy farm and is just beautiful. Coming up to her door was like going home to visit my grandmother. From moment one she was so welcoming and continually striving to make sure our stay was perfect. She is an amazing baker and you will never lack for yummy goodies. Every morning she sends you on your way with fresh baked scones to take with you in a little baggie and every evening when you return regardless of the time you will get some other fresh baked goods and an offer of tea or coffee. We compared goodies from each place we stayed and her scones win hands down. So delicious, especially with marmalade. Her assistant Mary comes each morning to help with breakfast and they put together amazing food and you will not leave hungry. The pancakes and porridge were our favorites. The room we were given was very large in comparison to other places we stayed and had a great view of the pasture where we could see the cows make their trek to get milked each day. If you want to view their milking operation, Mary will take you out back and tell you all about them. Norma also had great suggestions on things to do each day. I will definitely return one day. I just hope Norma is still running the place and if not perhaps Mary will take the reins.

Our stay at Ard Na Greine was exceptional! Mary is a fantastic host. She was very accommodating even for our late check in. She provided so much insight for our journey which made our experience there even more enjoyable. We stayed at many B&B’s throughout Ireland but this one by far exceeded our expectations. Breakfast was delicious and beds were very comfortable. I highly recommend staying here.

Norma was a fantastic host. If they required b&b operations to do training, they would / should do it here. Norma and her staff are phenomenal. I'm not sure other adjectives are needed. Thanks again for everything.

Norma was lovely, very welcoming and a wonderful hostess. She greeted us with coffee, scones, and delightful conversation. The view from her property was beautiful and the home was clean and very comfortable. We would definitely stay there again.
