LOVELY LARGE BEDROOM & BATH WITH A VERY COMFORTABLE
BED. EXCELLENT BREAKFAST! NIAMH WAS A FRIENDLY HOST
WHO GAVE US AN EXCELLENT RECOMMENDATION FOR A THAI
RESTAURANT FOR DINNER. WOULD HIGHLY RECOMMEND.
Niamh was a great host and her place is lovely. Breakfast was very good!!! She also gave us some great advice concerning going out to eat in Athlone. Highly recommended!
Staying at Niamh & Ronan's place was a truly unforgettable experience.
Except for the room being spacious, warm and clean they were amazing hosts. They gave us many tips for our trip, shared the local myths and stories, directed us to all the interesting sights around and were wonderful to chat with!
The pool table was also a hit! We started each morning with a game and finished every day with one too :) A true getaway for when the weather is not fabulous.
We would definitely recommend staying with Niamh and Ronan, and would love to stay at their house again in the future.
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.
