Meet your host…

Sean O'Donoghue

The O@Donoghue family have owned (for hundreds of years) and managed Salmon Leap Farm as a B+B since 1963. Sheila and Flor O@Donoghue started the B+B and Sheila is still part of the team along with Sean(son), Eilish(daughter in law) and Peter(grandson).Salmon Leap Farm has evolved over the years to what it is today, a 3 star, eco friendly B+B. We celebrated our 50th anniversary as a bed and breakfast in 2013 which we think was a milestone in the tourist business in Ireland.

Our stay at Salmon Leap was outstanding. Absolutely beautiful home and stunning scenery. Sean was a perfect host and breakfast was fantastic. There were 8 of us and to a person, we all agree we will be back!

We arrived late, but that was not an issue for Sean, who is a remarkable host. We stayed for 2 days and received an excellent and plentiful breakfast. The room was comfortable and the place was a home away from home. We would highly recommend!

The very best B&B we stayed at! Sean is the perfect host. We spent the evening watching the rugby game with him and learning all about the sport! Very clean and eclectic B&B. Sean’s porridge was the best I had on our trip. I would highly recommend this B&B! We’ll be back!
