Sherry's B&B was the best place we stayed in Ireland. The set up of the room and sitting room was perfect for our group of 4 people. It closed up to actually be two bedrooms at night. I was a little jealous that the sitting room bedroom got to have a TV. Both beds were very comfortable, which is saying a lot for the pull out bed in the living room. I slept very well each night. The place was spotless! There are treats in the sitting room perfect for a spot of tea. Sherry is a welcoming host who knows how to entertain and also give privacy. Breakfast is awesome! The view from the house is amazing. It is right up the road from Stradbally and not far from Carlow. When we traveled to other hotels/B&Bs in Ireland, I couldn't stop singing a little song called, "I Wish I Was Back Home in Sherry's". We had a lovely stay and would happily return.
Sherry was the perfect host and couldn't have done any more to make us feel welcome. Her Irish breakfasts were delicious and Ballaghmore B&B was just what we were looking for. Spacious with our own sitting room and complete privacy. We would highly recommend it to anyone travelling in that area.
