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 they are 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.

Salmon Leap is a very nice B&B. Our room was huge, clean and comfortable. Breakfast was great and the nearby pub recommended by the host was also good.

Salmon Leap was a wonderful first B & B experience in Ireland! Sean and Sheila couldn't have been any nicer and welcoming when we arrived and during our stay! Our room was very comfortable and quiet. We enjoyed a lovely breakfast in the beautiful traditional dining room! Would love to stay again and for longer to enjoy the company, beautiful home, and experience life in Ireland!

We so loved this B&B! The rural setting was enticing to us, and the home itself felt and looked like the wonderful, original country houses we had dreamed of seeing. Both inside and outside were welcoming to us...the inside beautifully decorated, and the outside yard and home like a dream place. It and the beautiful view all around were so peaceful, we could have stayed much longer! We enjoyed visiting with Sheila and Sean, and we were happy with the delicious breakfast. Sean graciously gave us directions and advice for the rest of our journey, for which we felt very appreciative. Thank you for being such wonderful hosts!
