We thoroughly enjoyed out two night stay in benown house bnb. Teresa was very welcoming. Our room was spacious and the bed very comfortable. It's spotlessly clean. Breakfast was fantastic. A great selection of cereals. Home cooked full irish was delicious. Thank you Teresa for a wonderful stay. Highly recommended!!

Stayed here for one night. Teresa was a great host, very friendly and offered great local knowledge. Breakfast was super and the cereal choices were the best I've come across Glass an village is small but very nice with three award winning resteuraunts, booing is advisable. Worth a stay.

This was our third stay at Benown House having previously been there 5 & 6 years ago. We cannot understand the adverse remarks made by other reviewers having ourselves found the place most welcoming. We received good advice about local eating places, and yes Grogan's is very good, but they rush the Guinness. Breakfasts are superb and we were also... More

This B&B was a real find. All possible needs were anticipated for residents. Loved the warm, welcoming fire in the guest lounge and the comfortable beds. Food was the best I have experienced in a long time and Theresa was a very attentive and friendly host. Would definitely recommend this home to others. Great pubs and restaurants nearby mean a...

We spent only one night here on our journey following the Shannon from one end to the other; it was a fine (but too short) stay. Very comfortable room, and the best shower of the trip: plenty of hot water, easy-to-adjust controls. Three good dinner choices (pub or restaurant) within easy walking distance. Teresa's breakfast was terrific: a fruit smoothie... More

Stayed at Benown House on 16th March. Delightful owner, very helpful and considerate. Were offered tea/coffee and home baked cakes on arrival, which was a lovely gesture. Room very clean, comfortable bed, adequate bathroom facilities. Offered advice on taxi service. No fuss attitude. Perfectly cooked breakfast in the morning, freshly made smoothie was refreshing. Would highly recommend.

We had an ok stay. Our room was on the top floor which was warm in the summer heat. It is just off a road that gets lots of activity and was noisy at night. It was clean and the morning breakfast was quick and very good. A nice spread of food to start the day. If you are just... More
