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

We had a delightful stay at Ballindrum Farm. Mary was a delightful hostess and a wonderful cook. It was so wonderful to be greeted with homemade scones and hot tea after a long flight and then a long drive from the airport. Athy is a charming town. We stayed for two days and wished it had been longer. She even helped us make our reservation for our next B & B.

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.
