Niamh and her husband couldn't have been more welcoming to us. The accommodation was spotless, spacious and top notch in terms of quality. The bathroom was huge! We had two excellent breakfasts with a range that would have put 5 star hotels to shame. Only 10 minute or so drive to Athlone so was pretty convenient for us too, and 3 mins away from the Hodson Bay hotel where we ate one night. Also, if you've young children, there's a great set of swings and go-karts which just made our kids' holidays! Thoroughly recommend and happy to stay again if we find ourselves back in Athlone.
Superbe accueil, avec des hôtes très conciliants et sympathiques ! De spacieuses chambres où il fait bon de se reposer et un excellent petit-déjeuner servi par notre hôte. À recommander !
Great welcome with hosts who are very nice. I recommand them to everyone.
Super séjour ! Très bon accueil (uniquement en anglais), propreté irréprochable, chambre très spacieuse (un grand lit et un lit superposé), petit déjeuner irlandais et/ou pain, céréales et fruits, copieux et excellent. Environnement très calme. Rien à redire. Que du positif ! :-)
Nous avons été très agréablement accueilli et parfaitement orienté vers un très bon restaurant (Top Deck Bistro - Athlone). Le petit déjeuner est fabuleux et la décoration du B&B très réussie. Merci à nos hôtes.
I must say that Niamh is the perfect hostess. Her house is spotless and cosy, she makes a delicious breakfast and, if you are travelling with kids, they will be able to play, run or jump in a lovely garden.
We had a really pleasant stay here.
Thank you Niamh :)
We stayed here as we were attending a wedding down the road at Hodson Bay (3km). Excellent welcome, including tea and scones on our arrival. Nothing too much trouble for the hosts, they even offered to give us a lift to the wedding. Very clean room, room serviced daily: ie. beds made, bathroom cleaned and clean towels every day. Tea and coffee making facilities in room, supplies replenished daily. Excellent Irish breakfast. Guests have the use of 2 sitting areas and also a games room in the main house
This B&B is suitable for couples, mixed groups or families, and a particularly good choice for families travelling with children, as Niamh and Ronan are very relaxed and friendly.
The B&B is located about 5-10 minutes drive from Athlone, on the main N61 towards Roscommon.
