We stayed here for one night in August for the Roscrea Music Comes Alive festival. The host made us feel very welcome, made us a lovely pot of tea & gorgeous toasted fruit loaf & buns on our arrival. We could have just boiled the kettle in our room, but she insisted. Then later her husband drove my boyfriend &...

We actually stayed in the self catering cottage but I couldn't see the page for that on here. We had an amazing time in a wonderfully furnished cottage. Gerard and Carole were very friendly and welcoming, nothing was too much trouble. They recommended attractions to see, places to eat, provided wood/peat/charcoal for the outdoor fire and then there is the...

I booked this trip through a third party booking agent, I accidently cancelled it and within two minutes I rang the agency and asked them to rebook it, they rang the bed and breakfast straight away and they were informed by the owner that we could not book again and they were charging our card €70. I understand cancellation fees...

Thank you for your recent review. We regret that you were unable to rebook your accommodation with us after cancelling it online as accommodation that weekend was highly sought after. As you are very aware there are no charges pending against your credit card. Hopefully you found alternative accommodation to suite your extra requirements. How "ONE" can cancel an booking...

We stayed overnight before heading to Tullamore Show in Co Offaly the next day. Carol gave us a warm welcome, making tea and toast on our arrival and recommending the Golf Club for dinner (superb meal there). The room was a double with a single bed (the only one available), well furnished with attention to detail, and spotlessly clean. The...

Stayed here during our trip to Munster Fleadh Cheoil in nearby Nenagh. Stayed in large double room with my wife and daughter. Room was very comfortable and clean. Owner was really welcoming, even though we arrived quite late, she made sure we were comfortable, offering to turn on heating and offering tea/coffee. We slept well in very comfortable beds. After...

Arrived at 4:30pm, was welcomed by Carole who provided us with afternoon tea. I was delighted to find I could have fresh brewed decaf coffee, a real boon as Ireland has not yet cottoned on to decaf coffee. Parking was available right outside the ground floor side entrance, I had requested an easily accessible room, Room 2 with its walk...

Stayed here for a few nights on business. Very disappointed with lack of wifi reception in the room. Rooms were nice and continental breakfast was nice. Although quoted a specific price on booking the room over phone, there was a debate as to the accuracy of this price on settling the bill, which left a bad taste afterwards.

My father has a deep history in the Roscrea area and he looks forward to visiting. My parents have stayed with Ger and Carole at least seven times, and this past summer I was able to join them. It was one of the cleanest and most welcoming B&Bs I've ever had the pleasure of visiting. Ger and Carole were warm...

We spent one night here. It was a very convenient halfway house when travelling from Dublin to Kerry. Whilst the decor is slightly dated, the comfort is perfect. We had a good sized ground floor room with a double bed - there was an additional single bed. The ensuite bathroom had the most powerful shower I have experienced.The house is...
