A great B&B close to Thurles South West of Dublin. You have a view of an old castle just outside. The rooms are very charming and cozy. They provide a great breakfast with your choice of eggs and great selection of items. The hosts were wonderful and gave us good advice on the attractions in the area and pubs for...

This is a wonderful property with large rooms and spacious grounds. The host Pierce is wonderful - knowledgeable and helpful in his guidance. His wife is an excellent cook and the breakfast will be too much for even the heartiest appetites.

This B&B is great value for money. The hosts are lovely. The breakfast is absolutely delicious, with most things being home made. The rooms are complete luxury, spacious and very comfortable. Highly recommend!

We've stayed at a number of Ireland B&B's during our 4 consecutive "self-guided" tours to the Emerald Isle and this one, in our opinion, was one of the best. Not only were the accommodations/breakfasts excellent but Pierce's suggestions on sites to visit turned out to be very worthwhile.

A nice B&B with good breakfast. Unfortunately the bed was a little bit to hard for us. Pierce, the landlord, is a nice guy and helpful. He has made good recommendations for a restaurant (Horse & Jockey) as well as sights (Rock of Cashel) on our tour.

Staying in the Castle Country House was an absolute highlight of our trip through Ireland. We were welcomed by the hosts and they were so friendly. We had three kids and they loved it as well. There is a great old tower that we could climb and a nice dog. The rooms are spacious and beatifully decorated. Beds slept perfectly...

Joan and Pierce are delightful and will make your visit a memorable experience. The B&B is a stately farmhouse adjacent to a tower ruins and is surrounded by lovely grounds. Rooms are charming and finely appointed. Our breakfast was wonderful - especially the homemade brown bread. Location is easy access from M8 out of Dublin and convenient to Rock of...

Pierce is extremely eager to please and make sure that all your needs are met! He gave us wonderful recommendations not just for dinner but also for activities on our way back up to Dublin. An absolutely beautiful location in the countryside, slightly removed from any larger towns, but perfect as a stop on the way between cities. Would definitely...

My mother and I recently stayed here the first day we arrived in Ireland from the States. We were tired and were able to get in 2 hours before check-in and were not charged for getting in early. The room was nice and clean and the bed was comfortable. Breakfast the next morning was great. We both had the traditional...
