It may seem a little of the beaten track, but it is well worth the visit. Christopher and Helen Kelly will look after you very well. The setting is idyllic with beautiful farmland and the sounds of the Irish countryside seeping in through your open window... perhaps the rooster is the exception but that is ok . We had dinner...

This was the best B&B on our entire Ireland trip. Helen and Christopher are super friendly hosts. They made a wonderful home out of the old farmhouse and proudly showed us their farm with the horses, cattle, sheep, chicken and dogs. The room was very nice and the bed was comfortable, even for a man of 1,96 m height. Breakfast...

This is the best place we stayed in Ireland on a fairly extensive trip. The house is beautifully restored (by the owners) and well decorated and cared for. Very comfortable and well equipped. The farm is terrific with a moderate flock of sheep (suffolks, mixed breeds), horses and cows -- but you don't have to love sheep etc. to stay...

This beautiful old farmhouse has been lovingly restored by the owners, Christopher & Helen, who greeted us warmly with tea and cake on arrival. Our rooms were large, nicely decorated and very comfortable - ours overlooked the front of the house with views of sheep and cows in the fields, while our niece's well-sized single overlooked the farmyard. Christopher &...

Lough Bishop House is a secluded, bucolic idyl. The livestock operation is run by the hosts, Christopher and Helen Kelly. They are articulate about their beloved horses, sheep and their unforgettable Derrynagara cows and love sharing their experience and knowledge. The farm and its surrounding countryside is breathtakingly beautiful and there are many opportunities for leisurely walks along the long...

We began our three week excursion to Ireland/Scotland/England with two nights at Lough Bishop House. This set a high standard for all stays to follow, none of which matched the warm hospitality and lovely accommodations we had at Lough Bishop. Helen and Christopher went above and beyond to insure that we were comfortable, even given their busy days on this...

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Built in the early 19th Century, Lough Bishop is a charming Country House nestling peacefully into a south-facing slope overlooking Bishop's Lough in County Westmeath, Ireland. Lough Bishop provides unique Country House Bed & Breakfast Accommodation owing to its wonderful location in the middle of a working organic farm. Breathtaking scenery in an unspoilt and tranquil setting, amid the rolling farmlands and lakes of Westmeath make Lough Bishop an ideal refuge from the hustle and bustle of modern life. There are family dogs in the background and animals play a large part of life at Lough Bishop House. Following extensive renovation this attractive Georgian Country Farmhouse offers its guests luxurious bed and breakfast accommodations, peaceful surroundings and fine food much of which comes from our own farm, garden and orchard. ... more   less
