I can't recommend Ardmore Country House highly enough. I stayed there last weekend with a group of friends. It is a beautiful period residence decorated with exquosite antique furniture and artwork. The bedrooms are also tastefully decorated and very comfortable. The ensuite bathrooms are spotlessly clean and the extensive gardens are full of lavender and roses. Delicious home cooked breakfasts are served in the charming period dining room. The location is ideal for exploring the Slieve Blooms' hiking and mountain biking trails. It's a short walk to the village of Kinnity where you can enjoy delicious craft beers in the Slieve Blooms brewery bar and tasty pizzas in Giltraps. Chris is an incredible host; she's great craic, an accomplished cook and goes to great lengths to make your stay a unforgettable experience. I'll definitely be back!

Location was good for the event we were attending at the Castle; room was large and spacious. Water pressure in the shower is great!
However: cleanliness in parts was not the best - shower flooded due to the amount of hair in the drain and the water bottle lid was covered in black mould.
The room was very good in terms of value, but (and I say this hesitantly given the rather cutting replies to any critical reviews), our welcome was not particularly warm. We had emailed the host prior to booking to confirm that we would be arriving half an hour later than the 7pm check in cutoff and were assured it was fine; however we received a phone call asking for our ETA (not sure if this email had been forgotten as sent several months prior). However upon arrival the host seemed quite hassled with us.
We were also pressured several times to pay in cash which we were not comfortable with. We were chastised as the card payment app “takes a percentage” and told to drive to Birr (a 30 minute round-trip) to get cash out. We refused and felt this put a dampener on the trip.
One more thing (which may be personal preference) but we locked our bedroom, and whilst we were out, someone came in to make the bed. I think it would be a nice touch to check before entering a locked bedroom (eg in hotels you can put a housekeeping request on the doorknob).
I’d say for the price paid the venue was fine, but I did not feel particularly welcome during my stay.

Response from Christina Byrne, Owner at Ardmore Country House

I am very distressed and upset by your remarks as to the cleanliness of my home which I am very particular about. Clearly the picture you posted of the hair in the shower drain was taken after you showered as the floor is wet, suds and water droplets as well as lots of hair are clearly visible on the drain outlet. You did not receive the room in that condition. The rubber seal on the water bottle caps are steeped in Milton daily but that obviously does not remove the stain. They may be unsightly but not harmful. For this reason I have now disposed of them. I’m sorry if you did not find me welcoming. Ardmore Country House is my home which I operate as a bed and breakfast and mostly have a pleasurable experience with guests who stay. It’s a two way interaction. I saw very little of you during your 2 day stay here while you were attending a wedding at the local hotel. You were in a rush out as soon as you arrived, did not accept the refreshments you were offered, did not have breakfast any morning so I did not get much opportunity to chat with you. My apologies if you felt pressured on the method of payment, it was not my intention. You were adamant you wanted to pay by card as you remarked you needed to show the cost of the visit as an expense. I accepted that. I did receive an email from you to say you would be here around 7pm but I checked your booking form which said you would arrive at 4pm and I forgot about your email. My apologies for that. There are times when guests following Google maps or Sat Navigation have problems with directions as it takes them on a longer route over the top of the mountain on a very narrow road. Most guests welcome my call for reassurance. If guests don’t want their room serviced they will usually tell me. Otherwise I will knock on the door to check if there is anyone inside and if not then I enter to service the room. This I believe is the standard procedure. In your case I am glad that I did as even though you were out for the day lights were left on. I appreciate that you expressed your happiness with the location, the price and the water pressure.

I had a wonderful stay here for a friend's wedding at nearby Kinnitty Castle. Chris made me feel very welcome and my room was super clean, comfortable and quiet. The shower was absolutely amazing - as was the breakfast!

My husband and I loved our stay at the Ardmore. Chris was an amazing hostess! She greeted us warmly and had a fire waiting for us in the sitting room. She also helped us with our dinner plans. She even walked down to the local pubs and called the nearby castle on our behalf. Our room was clean and comfortable with a peaceful view. We enjoyed dinner at the castle and met wonderful people in the pub a short walk from the home. Chris made us a tasty breakfast the following morning that we enjoyed with a view of the garden. The Ardmore is a beautiful home! Our stay with Chris was by far our favorite during our time in Ireland. We will definitely be back!

I think like a lot of people in Ireland we had forgotten about the charm of bed and breakfasts for breaks in Ireland. After a very disappointing stay in a notable nearby hotel we decamped to this wonderful guesthouse. What we had probably forgotten was the human touch, from the scones and coffee and tea on our early arrival to the local knowledge and directions that saved us many a detour. It’s a beautiful setting apparently the house was built by the former Lords of what is now called Kinnitty Castle for their GP. Beautiful gardens, beautiful view and a wonderful tasty breakfast in a room with a view. Chris was an excellent hostess, book with confidence.
