Carmel and Charlie are the perfect hosts! My wife and I stayed for two wonderful evenings at the Ballingowan House. Very comfortable bed, quiet rooms, great shower and a choice of traditional or heart healthy breakfast. Part of our trip to Ireland was to visit the places of our ancestors. Carmel and Charlie know so much about the Newcastle West... More

This place is like a little dollhouse, with the owners (especially Carmel) being absolutely delightful. If you'd like to experience a comfortable night's sleep and morning in a simply adorable accommodation, away from the city with a nice breakfast included,... More

My two cousins and I chose the Ballingowan B&B because we wanted a place ideal for traveling to four points of the compass: north to Galway, east to Kilkenny, west to Dingle and south to Cobh. And we didn't want to keep changing lodgings. This was just the right spot for coming home to each night. Carmel and Charlie made... More

Words cannot express the hospitality that was provided by Carmel and Charlie. They were very kind, friendly and helpful. The breakfast was outstanding. While visiting Ireland it was my first time experiencing B&B's and since I am accustomed to staying in hotels that are very modern and up to date, the house was a little dated for my taste but...

Carmel and her husband were wonderful hosts. Breakfast was wonderful. The views were great out the back of the house. The garden looks just as it does in pictures.The showers had decent water pressure and the beds were comfy.
