Everything about our stay was wonderful from start to finish! We spent our first two nights in Ireland at Ballindrum Farm, and our family of five loved it all. Mary and Vincent were excellent hosts, and Mary's breakfasts were delicious. The rooms were extremely comfortable and roomy. The farm is beautiful, and we enjoyed talking with Mary and Vincent about things to see and do in the area, as well as learning more about their family. We will definitely make this a stop the next time we are in Ireland!

Superb accommodations (comfortable bed, practical room and bath), in a delightful natural environment. Mary was a gracious, welcoming and attentive host. Her breakfast is truly superb. We delighted in the home-baked scones and soda bread. We will definitely stay at Ballindrum Farm B&B if we are visit this part of Ireland again. Highly recommended! We are grateful to have stayed here.

We enjoyed our stay at Ballindrum Farm in the countryside near Athy. Mary was a gracious host, welcoming us with tea & lovely scones. Breakfast was delicious with Mary’s home cooked entrees, baked goods & fresh orange juice. She definitely loves to cook & bake and it shines through. The only reason I gave a 9 rating was because our room & bathroom were very small. Comfortable enough but very tight quarters. We did enjoy our stay very much
