The Lawcus Farm Guest House is a very special place; a handcrafted home and guest house in a beautiful country setting. We felt very comfortable and welcomed. Plan on staying several days there to relax and tour the countryside, and visit the artisan craft shops along the way. Splendid!

This bed and breakfast was a last minute changeup up. We found them here and was one of the best bed and breakfasts we stayed in on our trip. Mark and Ann Marie were gracious hosts that were a wealth of knowledge of the area. Wonderful breakfast and a terrific setting. Will be staying here again!

Mark and Ann-Marie are the perfect hosts and their farm is a great place to experience an Irish farm with beautiful landscapes while still being close to a lot of great attractions. Ann-Marie's great traditional Irish breakfast and drop scones, as well as Mark's stories about the farm, were a great bonus on top of it all. Walking along the... More

Friends told us this was their favorite place & we certainly understood why! Lawcus Farm was definitely a highlight of our trip, especially for our 3 boys! Would describe the guest rooms as beautiful, rustic elegance. The farm itself was beautifully set on a trout river, where our boys enjoyed playing and exploring. They helped feed the animals in the... More

Arrived at the farm after a long drive and was greeted by Mark and was offered tea. Mark showed us all the rooms and we and our guest decided which ones we liked best. Our rooms were beautiful. As a matter of fact the whole place was beautiful. Anne Marie was out of town at the time - we would... More

I am a little delayed in this review..My husband and I stayed at the Lawcus Farm the first two nights of our two week honeymoon in the beginning of October 2016. We stayed in the treehouse, and it is beyond explanation. The treehouse itself sits beyond the b&b, very quaint built within the trees with a great view overlooking the... More

We absolutely loved our time at Lawcus Farm! It was our first stay at a B&B and they set the bar very high- The area is absolutely idyllic. Every picture is like a postcard. Ann Marie and Mark are incredible hosts. The rooms are very comfortable. We will definitely come back!

My husband and I visited Ireland the first week of October to celebrate our first wedding anniversary, and Lawcus Farm was one of our favorite experiences there. We stayed in the Lookout Room which had a balcony facing Kings River, and we left a window open at night so we could hear its trickling stream while we slept, and the... More
