The Foxrock Inn is a traditional Irish Inn located in the heart of the Irish countryside. Nestled on the edge of the Slieve Bloom mountains, the area is rich in natural beauty. The Foxrock Inn Bed & Breakfast and the adjoining Mary's Bar offer peace and quiet in surroundings of intrinsic beauty. The guest rooms are exquisitely furnished with private bathrooms and a variety of breakfast choices are readily available. The area has numerous superb 18 hole golf courses within 15 minutes of our premises: Rathdowney, Mountrath, Roscrea, Portarlington, and The Heath Portlaoise to name but a few. The exclusive Mount Juliet in Kilkenny is 30 minutes away and the "K" Club in Kildare can be reached in 45 minutes. Both Coarse Fishing and Game Fishing are located within 5 minutes of the Inn - and the list of excellent spots is endless: Grantstown Lake, Ballyfin Lake, Templemore Lake, Ballinakill Lake, the River Nore and River Erkina and more. Group bookings are available on request, complete with a packed lunch and a evening meal to enjoy.

The Foxrock Inn is a family owned B&B run with love & care by Marianne & Sean. We spent two lovely days there and could not have been more comfortable or pampered. We were welcomed from the first moment with offers of refreshments & assistance. The room was spacious, spotless and quiet. The breakfast plentiful and scrumptious. Sean provided us w/ detail information about Ireland's sports, history & geography. Marianne and her daughter Laura took us w/ them to a night of Irish music and dance at a nearby pub. Local performers from very young (including Laura) to not-so-young supplied us with unforgettable entertainment while the local patrons made us feel very welcome. Our stay at Foxrock was a wonderful experience that we wished we could extend and hope to repeat.

The Fox Rock Inn is located in the quiet farm setting of Clogh, (County Laois) yet is just minutes to all the main motorways to get you off to where you want to be. At the end of each day's exploring we always looked forward to returning to the peace and solitude of the Fox Rock Inn, bordered by rolling green pastures and star-studded night skies (no light pollution out here!) Our big, bright spotlessly-clean room with a quality mattress ensured a great night's sleep plus the modern ensuite bathroom with loads of endless hot water was a real treat. Breakfast was made to order and kept us going for the whole day. The attached "Mary's Bar" was the ideal way to end the night with a pint & bag of crisps while meeting the friendly quiet locals who, along with the owners, Sean and Marian, were always pleased to share suggestions & directions of the many attractions the surrounding area offered. You can't go wrong here!

Absolutely loved and highly recommend This place. Myself and a few mates stayed here for a night and we were very impressed On arrival, no fuss just checked into our rooms and where all settled in. The connected bar was very convenient and perfect for a quiet few drinks and light bar entertainment (darts etc) Great rooms had everything we needed and the bathrooms were excellent quality. The breakfast was amazing; full Irish and the traditional spread. The owners were great. Very warm and friendly and provided a great service. Made every effort to ensure we had a pleasant trip. Plus offered some interesting and useful insight to what to see and do locally

Sean and Meriann totally ROCK! The B&B is attached to the pub that they also operate. They welcome you and make you feel right at home. We arrived late because of problems in Dublin but they were there waiting for us. Had some Guinness in the pub and met the locals. It was a blast. Friendly and taught me Hurley. I would give this place a 100 stars if that were an option.
