Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

Stayed here as group of eight on hill walking weekend for one night. Chris is an excellent host and looked after our every need, even opening up her kitchen to allow us to make lunches. She supplied extra tea and coffee for us to bring on our walk. The house is very comfortable and an excellent freshly-cooked breakfast was served to order. Homemade scones and tea and coffee served on arrival. Highly recommended.

Hi Diane, Many thanks for your lovely review. I very much enjoyed having you stay with me for the week. I travel quiet a bit of Ireland myself as we are only about 2 hours from most places so I know the best places to go to. Good that you enjoyed my recommendations. Hope to see you again soon. Chris

We stayed here in March, 2019. The hostess was excellent and welcomed us with delicious brownies. The breakfast was very good. The rooms were clean and comfortable. I was very grateful for the electric blanket! Chris, our hostess, was very kind and helpful.

I stayed here the night before my wedding with my bridesmaids and my mum and it was so wonderful. Chris was an amazing host, it was horrible weather that night and she put the fire on and made us some delicious brownies! The house is so cosy and was exactly what I needed for a nice relaxing evening right before my wedding. Chris sat and had a chat with us too, but also did her own thing so we could have some time to ourselves. She gave us a wonderful breakfast the next morning and drove us over to the venue at 7:30 am! Then she drove my mum up later on after another wonderful breakfast. Her kindness and hospitality will not be forgotten! Thanks so much Chris! We will definitely come back next time we're staying in the area.

Had the pleasure of staying in Ardmore House last week for the ploughing championships. Cant recommend Chris and her beautiful home enough, she was a fantastic hostess and made us all feel very welcome. Would definitely return for a leisure trip to explore the surrounding area. Great location & accommodation.

Wonderful B&B in a beautiful house in the heart of Ireland. Host Chris gave us useful advise for trips in and around Slieve Mountains. Highly recommended for Irelandfans who want to get away from the mainstream tourist sites. Theo & Véronique, Middelburg Netherlands

Co. Offally is a seeming quiet part of Ireland. However, it is the perfect place to recharge, We drank in the authentic town, B&B, nature and pub. Our room and the common room were lovely,the local pub comfy, authentic and inviting. The breakfast was lively with fresh baked goodies, graceful presentation and good company. Chris is the most gracious host and we recommend the Ardmore Country House without hesitation or in our case formal reservation.

I had a wonderful weekend here with some close friends and I must say that it's a gem. Ardmore Country House was our base for a walking break in the nearby Slieve Bloom Mountains. The house and garden are beautiful, well maintained and most comfortable. My bedroom was spacious, airy and decorated tastefully in restful colours that complemented the views of green rolling hills from the windows. My bed was very comfortable and I slept very well. The breakfasts were delicious with plenty of choice along with tasty home baked scones and soda bread. I look forward to visiting again and recommending it to my family and friends. Thank you Chris for your lovely welcome.

If I could return to Ireland, I would like to see new parts of Ireland that I did not see last year, but my heart would be eager to return to Ardmore Country House in Kinnitty Birr Offaly Ireland. This area is where my Great Grandmother came from and I truly enjoyed my time for three days in this area. Of all the places we had stayed in Ireland, and in the USA, I felt extremely well taken care of at Ardmore Country House. It is a dream of mine to return there.
