Springview House is an 18th century residence set on a working Dairy and Angus Beef farm. We have been welcoming guests into our home since 1992. I love cooking and guests can be assured of some delicious home-baking on their visit. I am delighted to say that past guests have commented on how at home they feel at Springview House. I like to ensure that everyone who steps over the threshold of my home enjoys a true Irish experience.

Best friends since high school Patti and set out on our drive through Ireland with our first stop for a night with Eileen at Springview House. What a beautiful home and beautiful person in Eileen! You could tell she loved what she does! I remarked to Patti how she must have been the best mom ever to grow up with! The rooms were so lovely and cozy...with heated sheets to boot! Eileen gave us fantastic tips and great insights for our Ireland journey! So happy we took her advice to drive the Wild Atlantic Way which was stunning! We couldn't have started our adventure in a more perfect way! And that breakfast!!! Over the top fantastic! Thank you, Eileen, for a wonderful stay!

Our stay at Springview House was entirely delightful. We really enjoyed the house and the location. As it turned out, the day that we were to arrive, Eileen was called away to care for a family member. Her husband and son Mike stood in for her, and we were treated splendidly! We were welcomed with two slices of one of her excellent apple pie and tea upon arrival, and had a lovely chat with her husband. The next morning her son cooked us a wonderful Irish breakfast! We stayed two days, and enjoyed the comings and going‘s of other guests, but especially our interactions with her family members. Eileen spoke to us on the phone before we left, saying how sorry she was she’d been unable to meet us. We hope to visit again sometime and look forward to the opportunity to meet her, but we were really very pleased with her husband and son as our hosts. We also enjoyed the farm and watching the cows move around at different times of the day. It was great to get a farmer’s view of current events and how world economies are affecting the Irish dairy market. As Americans, we’re very aware of the effect that commerce between the US and Ireland has for families in Ireland. It was a great opportunity to learn more.

Our group of four was delighted to spend September 7,8 and 9, 2019 at Springview Farm. There was much to be delighted about- from the very warm greeting from Eileen, the luxurious accommodations, serene setting of the working farm to the ease with which we spent days wandering near and far, the days were wonderful. We enjoyed meeting other visitors over excellent breakfasts and late evening living room chats. Those breakfasts certainly fortified us well in order to visit such historic sites as Rock of Cashel, Glendalough and St. Kevin's Monastic site; a full day in Kilkenney, and a thrilling nighttime drive through the Wicklow Mountains (no! we advise you to do this during the day!) and all the charming small towns- Avoca for you "Ballykissangel" fans in easy days' drives. The history and views were grand. What will always remain with us all will be the smile, advice and discussions with Eileen. Thank you, Eileen and to her family who share her with the lucky travelers who stay at Springview Farm. Slainte, Jim and Linda Kopf; Amy and David Finnegan

Eileen was my absolute favorite hostess in our 15 day trip to Ireland! She is beyond sweet and accommodating. My (now) fiance and I arrived to her house as boyfriend and girlfriend, and left as an engaged couple! Her house will always have a special place in my heart of course. My fiance and I took a walk on her beautiful property, past the cows and into a vast field. It was the perfect sunny day, with clear skies, and my fiance couldn't give up the opportunity to pop the question right there in the field! We came back beaming, and Eileen made us feel very celebrated. When we got back from dinner she was waiting for us with celebratory baileys and a gift! She stayed up talking for us for about an hour. In the morning she cooked us a delicious breakfast, and her scones were to die for! Eileen is the grandmother I never had. Besides the high quality hospitality, the house is stunning. I HIGHLY recommend staying at Springview House.

We stayed at Springview house for two nights in June. We were overwhelmed by the warm welcome and the hospitality, which made our holiday in Irland unforgettable. We enjoyed the delicious breakfast and to chat with Eileen. The old house is charming. We felt good all around. Many thanks to Eileen. We absolutely recommend it!
