No smoking any where in the house. Pets are required to sleep in kitchen gated area and freedom outside but at owners own risk as we have our own family pets (2 great danes, 3 pugs) Horses in paddocks. Cats in stables and sometimes in kitchen.
Our stay with Libby was wonderful. she greeted us with tea and homemade cakes. Our room was gorgeous as are the two beautiful great danes who greeted us to. It's an amazing house full of beautiful objects gathered over time. The breakfast was delicious and I couldn't help myself having the homemade pancakes pastries toast fruit salad and eggs and bacon. I probably put on 3lbs just at breakfast. I had the best nights sleep. Our bed was super comfy. Libby even offered to drive us into cellbridge where we went for dinner. I'd say it's worth staying here just to meet Libby, She really is a super host and not have done more. Her lovely staff at breakfast were very nice too. Nearly forgot there was a beautiful roaring fire in the dining room at breakfast. 5*
The Springfield Bed and Breakfast ist an extraordinaire place to stay. The house ist wonderful and the welcoming was very cordially. The rooms are romantic, absolutely clean and a little bit dreamy. The breakfast we had was very sumptuos and delicious. An absolutely recommendation!
Libby was a fantastic host and we would highly recommend staying with her to anyone. She welcomed our family into her home and treated them as if they were old friends. She is fantastic with kids and did everything she could to make our stay a great experience.
Thanks for everything Libby!

Libby's place was fantastic!
Stayed there for a night with few friends & we loved every minute of it!
great family, food & surrounding.
Would love to go back again!
Libby was an excellent host with a beautiful home and grounds to enjoy. The location was just outside of Dublin, but plenty close enough for an easy and quick drive to the city. She offered great restaurant recommendations in the area, and prepared the most impressive breakfast spread that I have ever enjoyed, and by a warm fire, to boot.
We had the most wonderful stay with Libby. The house is incredible - open fireplaces, paintings and period furniture. The room we stayed in was very well kept with a huge and very comfortable bed. Libby is a charming host and an incredible baker too. We were greeted upon arrival with freshly baked cakes and tea. I highly recommend Sheehy's at Springfield - you will not be disappointed!
I'm originally from Texas but have been living in Ireland for 33 years so you could say I know this place pretty well by now! I enjoy welcoming all my guests to our home and taking care of them throughout their stay. I look forward to meeting you soon. Springfield, Celbridge, Co. Kildare, Ireland.
