It was a pleasure to be able to stay in such a beautifully restored historic building. Miriam is a genuinely friendly and helpful host. All the luxury of a top class hotel but at an affordable price. Can't recommend this B&B highly enough.

This was by far the most luxurious place we stayed in Ireland. The art work- paintings, sculptures, etc. set the Old Bank apart from the more homey places we stayed. Miriam was a delight to converse with, and made sure we were well cared for. The bathroom had a large tub- the only BB to have one on the visit....

Mariam runs a clean, comfortable B&B. The breakfast was excellent, she custom made Irish pancakes for us both mornings. She is a great host and takes time to provide touring suggestions. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay here and recommend the bank as a must stay if you will be in this area.

It is off the beaten path, in a city without many amenities in the evening, which was fine. We got in town early enough to grab dinner at...

We stopped over at Miriam's wonderfully unique B&B in Bruff, Co. Limerick on the long drive from Dublin to Dingle. This is a beautiful & tastefully decorated house where you are welcomed you with a roaring fire and a brilliant hostess who carefully balances friendly chat without being intrusive. Nearby Bunratty Castle & Folk Park (with the Fairy Village) &...
