I visit Abbeyleix, County Laois, once a year. It is approximately 2 hours from Dublin, heading inland towards the south or about the same from Rosslare Harbour, still heading inland but north this time. When I am visiting Abbeyleix, there is only one place I will stay at. I arrange my holiday to suit the available dates at the beautiful...

To be honest, all we really wanted was somewhere to lay our heads on our way to catch the ferry to France. However, what we got was an absolute gem of a place, run by wonderful people - but more of that later. Our room was excellent - comfortable, big bed, big bathroom - and plenty of space to set...

Sandymount House is set back from the road within its lawned gardens and has a car parking area. The rooms are well appointed but sadly our room was the exception as the power shower failed and we had to use the communal bathroom across the landing. The remote control for the TV also failed but as we were only using...

One of my favourite places to stay. You have a feeling of home from home and the host is warm and welcoming. The bedrooms are large and the beds are very comfortable. You have a large selection of food for breakfast and the French toast is a must. The grounds are beautiful and they welcome dogs. Overall this is a...

Why do you go to a B&B? For the hospitality of home with the convenience of a hotel. Sandymount fits that to a tee. The house is quaint, the rooms cozy, and the grounds quiet and peaceful. But the best attraction is the hosts--wonderfully gracious and welcoming. I could not recommend the Sandymount more highly. You won't regret a visit...

Gorgeous Georgian house set in a large garden, just outside Abbeyleix. Very warm welcome on arrival with tea and cakes served in our room. Felt very personal and comfortable. Gorgeous big room on the front of the house. Comfy squishy bed. Lovely breakfast served in cosy setting. Really enjoyed our short stay.

Enjoyed our stay at Sandymount. Room and breakfast were lovely as was our host Avril, who shared history of home and area. Loved patting the horses in back. We drove to Kilkenny to sight see from the house and back. Perfect place to stay for last night in Dublin w fairly easy ride to Dublin. Highly recommended!
