We thoroughly enjoyed our overnight stay on the way back to Dublin Port and would definitely stay here again if in the area. Mary and Raymond were very friendly hosts - and the scones served on arrival have to be some of the best in Ireland! Our room was delightfully decorated and furnished. The bed was extremely comfortable with beautiful bed linen and a good quality duvet (not like the rigid, heavy, synthetic duvets experienced elsewhere). We were able to get an evening meal at a local hotel and enjoyed a visit to the Heritage Centre in nearby Athy before leaving for Dublin. A lovely finale to our fortnight in Ireland.

Host's Reply:

This truly is a wonderful accommodation, both Mary and Raymond were fantastic hosts and very courteous. We were greeted with tea and cake at our arrival, the breakfast was down-home and tasty. Raymond surprised us with his sweeping history knowledge and was overall great to talk to. The house and its' interior were antique, very well cared for and clean. So, a big compliment to the owners, we definitely recommend it !

I loved staying here. My room was filled with antiques, and was very comfortable. The house is beautiful, and is set on a large working farm planted in barley and wheat. I liked talking with Raymond; he's a very interesting man. Breakfast included the best black pudding I had on this vacation.

This is a great historical home and farm. Room and bed were great, as well as the breakfast. Mary And Raymond are fantastic hosts. Great to hear stories of the family farm and to see their preservation as well as hearing the modern farm functions.

We arrived later than we anticipated and our hosts were very accomadating. They gave us the bedroom on the ground floor to make it easier for us to leave in the morning for our early flight home. The room was so comfortable with the most beautiful linens on the bed. We took a sunset stroll around the grounds to see the farm which was spectacular. The house was filled with beautiful antiques and fresh flowers. The breakfast room had the prettiest skylight. Raymond sat and talked with us before bed and he was such a delight to listen to. My biggest regret was not having enough time to spend at Moete Lodge.
