An unplanned stop in Drogheda brought us to this B&B for the night. Lovely and friendly welcome by the Hostess. Our room was lovely and private with our own bathroom. The room was warm, cosy, wifi, tv, tea & coffee facilities. The water was lovely and hot! Breakfast was quick and tasty. Before we left the Hostess made sure all was ok with our stay and we had another lovely chat! Thank you for the kind hospitality! Mr&MrsKelly, Australia
Booked a Twin & a friend had a Single room on 17th March. Overnight stay with an early start on Sunday (6:30), so a cold breakfast of cereals, bread, cheese, jam & muffins and Orange juice was laid out for us. We did not see the owner after she showed us the rooms & took the cash. Good points : Emailed directions were accurate. Rooms were clean and beds comfortable. Bad points : Attention to detail, The batteries were dead in the TV remote & the shower head in the single room was dirty. The milk sachet for Coffee in the bedroom was curdled. At breakfast there was no toaster for the bread or a kettle, so no hot drinks available. The unopened pack of 4 muffins on the breakfast table were 6 MONTHS out of date (24-Sep-2017)
This is a reasonably priced and clean b&b. However information on their website is incorrect. 1. There is no choice with a hot breakfast. The light breakfast consists of 2 pieces of fruit, a tub of yogurt and a bought muffin. No brioche, pancake, smoked salmon, cheeses, cold meats etc. As stated on web site. 2. Hot breakfast given to you as you eat your cereal. 3. Toast, sliced white and wheaten. Also given to you whilst you eat your cereal. 4. Asked to pay in cash when you arrive which is ok but we twice asked for a receipt and were not given one. 5. You will never be short of reading material as there are numerous notices on the walls telling you what not to do.
The room we stayed in was very nice, clean, excellent bed and nice en-suite.We were very surprised to be asked to pay in cash on arrival - we, and I suspect most people do not carry large amounts of cash. Although not pressurised we felt obliged to go out and get the money. The water pressure in the shower is low, we needed to tell the owners twice about the cold showers and eventually at our suggestion we were allowed into another room to use the shower. The breakfast is pretty average, no white or black pudding in Ireland!
myself and my partner booked into killowen house for one night,,,i was asked if we could book in before 6 pm as she was going out,,,we stayed in a garage which was turned into a bedroom,,,that was ok,,then she asked if we could pay her up front,the price was 95 euro for a double room,,then i noticed on the wall,,,a notice on the wall no food in the room,,no showers after a 11pm,,,no heating in the room,,,on our way back to the b and b my partner triped over a step and hurt herself,,as there was no lighting in the front of the house,,,as for the breakfast you could have put it on a piece of bread,,,i would never recommend this bed and breakfast to anyone ,,,,,,
A clean and welcoming B&B on the outskirts of Drogheda run by Angela who is a very friendly host. The breakfasts were good and the B&B provided plenty of tourist advice. Handy for short trips to visit Dublin/Belfast as both are a short distance away by god road, rail and bus links.
Arrived 5.00pm. Really warm welcome! Comfortable room. Good recommendation for nearby eaterie to enjoy an evening meal. Did we want a cooked breakfast? We said yes. A time was agreed. It came with no choice offered, with white bread toast provided.
We were the only guests at Killowen House recently. The house is very grand at first glance but a little dated in furnishings etc. Our room was quite large as was our ensuite. However the water pressure was terrible and there was mould on the ceiling due to lack of ventilation. Rather off putting!! We had a mid morning flight the following day so declined a cooked breakfast. While we were offered basic cereal, 2 tubs of yoghurt and pieces of fruit we thought the breakfast could have been better. The location is a definite plus and an easy drive to the airport.
It was six of us travelling so we were given a room for two and a family room with a double bed, a twin bed and a roll out that was in the way. The room was very crowded. The moment we walked in I was asked for the vouchers, no where else they did this, and was told that they were a 4 star so we had to pay the difference. I honestly don't know why this is a four star, all the 3 star B&B we stayed at were much nicer and friendlier. I asked that no one enter the room and we would just give them the towels to replace them with clean ones and every time we went to the room someone had been there. The windows were being left open and we had some insects crawling or flying in. You were not allowed into any part of the house except for breakfast. You couldn't bring outside food to eat in your room. The breakfast the first day was very little. The host was bothered that I contacted her one night past 9:00pm so the night before our departure I was extremely ill and felt I needed to go to the hospital but was afraid to wake her up and ask for the nearest hospital. She did give us suggestions of places to visit and such but out of all the B&B we were at in Ireland, about 5, this was the only one we didn't feel comfortable in. I feel this should be a 3 star B&B. It's well located, the wifi was on and off. I probably would not return here.…
We stayed here the night before our flight out of Dublin as it was very convenient to the airport (about 20 minutes drive). The room was nice and the house was immaculate. Our host even left out yogurt, juice, milk, and cereal for us early in the morning before our flight. We did have an issue with our shower drain in that it wasn't working too well, but things like this occur often enough that I don't feel the need to blame. I'm sure it will be fixed. Something that we both found a bit strange and rather uncomfortable though were the large number of printed signs throughout the house and our room. There were literally warning, do not, please do, remember to, etc. signs throughout. Everywhere you looked, you were given a stern warning or "friendly" reminder by one of these signs. We just found them a bit off-putting and more of something that would be found in a college residence hall or other facility that hosted young children or teens. Overall though, good stay, comfortable, and wonderful host.…
