We loved Ballindrum Farm. Idyllic rural setting . Our room very comfortable and Mary's breakfasts top notch with home-made breads and scones. Mary was the perfect hostess. Very helpful with directions and suggestions for things to do. A very well run establishment......highly recommended.

Rick really enjoyed checking out the milking system and hearing about your process. He grew up on a dairy farm in Montana so he found it very interesting. Mary had great breakfasts for us every morning which started out day of perfectly. The room was very clean and comfortable. We thoroughly enjoyed our time in your neck of the woods.

What a wonderful way to end our trip. Several other guests we had met along the way at other B&B’s, and it was most everyone’s last night in Ireland. We enjoyed a cup of coffe and tea with scones and a wonderful visit with a new friend, Mary, who was beginning her stay. I’ll always remember the beautiful landscape and lovely hospitality. Ballindrum Farm is a beatiful and peaceful farm where we enjoyed watching the herd of cows being rounded up that evening to the playful calves in the back gently and sweetly taunting the chickens through fence in the back portion of the farm - it was a sweet and delightful view with the sunset in the background. The room, the people, the place was just special! Thank you!

Dear Mary and Michaela, your review is so beautiful, thank you. Mary

Stayed 5 nights rather than pack up and search for a new B&B every day or so. Start the day with a nutritious breakfast served by extrodnary hosts and then off for 12-14 hours of touring a fantastic country!
