We very much enjoyed our 1 night stay at Cradog. Lil was kind and gracious. She even offered my mom a cup of tea when we arrived a little late in the evening, then spent some time chatting with her. The accommodations were comfortable and the breakfast was great. Thank you!

Our first B&B on our first trip to Ireland. What a delight! This was like being at home and made us so comfortable about our decision to stay in B&Bs around the country on our vacation! the accommodations are first class and Lil is as warm and helpful as can be. She made us relax and feel like family as opposed to simple guests! Definitely would stay here again!

We enjoyed our 2-night stay at Cradog. Lil was so nice and took time to sit and chat. She has a lovely home, decorated with some of her own paintings which we admired. Our room was quite comfortable. The views from her home are beautiful.

We booked this B&B the day of traveling to it. When we arrived we learned that there was an accidentally over booking (which very likely could of had a lot to do with our last minuet booking.) However, the owner had already found us another accommodation right down the road at a friend of hers B&B. Lil was very honest with us about the overbooking and she was kind enough to escort us to the next B&B herself. We really appreciated her warm welcome and the trouble she went through to find us another place to stay. Although we didn’t end up staying at her place it did look lovely.

This was a nice secluded stay with a wonderful host and an easy drive to Kilkenny and Urlingford. The accommodations were peaceful and just what we were looking for. I would highly recommend this B&B.
