Though we've had big troubles with a wrong suitcase we've picked up at the airport, we've had a very comfortable stay at Ballindrum Farm. Thanks a lot for your help and support solving the problem! We would definitely stay here again.

We had a lovely stay at the farm. Mary and family took great care of us. The views are stunning. We missed the milking, but very much enjoyed the pups and musical chickens.

We had a lovely stay with Mary at this B&B. Mary is the epitome of hospitality! We arrived late due trying to see more than you should in 8 hours, but Mary had homemade scones with homemade jam ready for us.The breakfast was amazing! Mary is truly a great cook. Her home is lovely and relaxing. And you can see the cows and chickens wandering around. We would definitely stay here again.
