We definitely saved the best for last. This was our last stay in Ireland and it was the most accommodating and pleasant stay. The breakfast menu had plenty to choose from and it did not disappoint. Absolutely delicious. Thanks Chris!

Just back from a stay in Ardmore Country House after a wedding in Kinnity. It was just blissful, from the warm welcome & cosy rooms, to the home cooked breads, scones and breakfast it was just faultless. We loved every second and would love to return. Thank you Christina for such a warm welcome into your beautiful home.

We chose to start our 10 day holiday in Ireland at Ardmore House B&B for 2 reasons, and it was our best decision for 100's of reasons. The house and gardens are serene and beautiful.

My wife and I passed through Kinnitty last week and spent a night at this delightful country manor, in Kinnity. Quite a find it was, its owner Chris spent time with us over tea and cake in the evening, very charming and friendly - she is full of information about Kinnitty and the neighborhood and makes one feel right at...

We truly enjoyed our stay with Chris! She was a very gracious host who took the time to make sure our stay was enjoyable. One of the highlights was joining her at her music session at the local pub. It was so much fun! We would highly recommend the Ardmore House, and Chris, to every one visiting the area!

Myself and my partner stayed with Christina at the Ardmore Country House in Kinnitty for two nights over the August bank holiday weekend (2016). If you like hill walking and have not been to the Slieve Blooms, I fully recommend you visit this part of the world. The walking is excellent (Slieve Bloom Way plus many looped walks) but the...

We visited Ardmore House for just one night but would have liked to stay longer. This is such a beautiful part of Ireland and the lovely towns of Tullamore and Birr are nearby. Chris made us feel so welcome, our room downstairs was very comfortable and spacious, had a beautiful outlook and our breakfast was amazing.

Stayed in an en-suite room in the B&B, room was cosy and very comfortable. Got greeted with delicious homemade chocolate (brownies!?) snacks and a wee pot of tea, very nice touch.
