We stayed with Anne and Warwick a few years ago (2018, unfortunately I am not a regular TripAdvisor user which explains why only writing a review now!). The O'Hara's provided one of the warmest and most delightful stays I have ever had the pleasure of enjoying. At the time, Dinner was an option at Mornington House, going by more recent reviews, I am not sure if this is still the case. If it is, then I can heartily recommend partaking in it, as well as breakfast as both are excellent meals. The mealtimes are also a wonderful chance to engage further with the lovely hosts and the charming other guests that fin this hidden gem.
Warick and Ann are the most welcomeing hosts ever, we had a wonderful stay in their B&B which is full of history and style and has a lovely walled garden just like the castles we saw, the breakfast is delicious and the serounding is beautiful. Most recommended.
This was the last couple days of our couple weeks in Ireland -- and what a way to finish the vacation! Warwick and Anne O'Hara are fabulous hosts, anxious to please, knowledgeable, and fascinating people. We thoroughly enjoyed our conversations with them. Warwick cooks a "mean breakfast", to say the least. And Anne prepares gourmet dinners -- served in the spacious and elegant dining room, after you spend time in the parlor beforehand. Our room on the second floor was very large, with a bathroom the size of many hotel rooms. It was classy -- not modern, but authentic and comfortable. Look our the windows at the donkeys, the grounds, the view towards the river. In back is a beautiful large garden, mainly ornamental but with some materials for dinner. Clearly maintaining this country house is a labor of love for the O'Hara's. Join them for a couple days and you will see why!! This is a great base for exploring the ancient ruins in the east -- the Hill of Tara and Newgrange, for instance. And it is only an hour from Dublin Airport when you eventually have to go home. And, no, it is not a "B&B"! It is a manor house, part of Hidden Ireland. Enjoy!…
.lAwaits you at Mornington. Warwick and Anne are outstanding hosts, always ready to help in any way to make your stay special. Beautiful surroundings, elegant, comfortable, spacious rooms and the garden is a treat to walk in. Don’t pass on this one if you are staying in Westmeath. The breakfast is excellent (not to mention plentiful) too!
A charming manor house, grounds, and walled garden with a long history that is lovingly maintained. Beautiful, comfortable rooms and baths. Breakfast made to order and delicious. Thoroughly enjoyed our conversations with the owners Warwick and Anna. Close to many sites and an hour from Dublin.
This was a perfect place to spend our last night after a week in Ireland. We’d stayed in a primo urban hotel, resort, lodge and castle. This quiet little B&B is way off the beaten path, yet only an hour from the airport in Dublin. Excellent hospitality.
We enjoyed staying two nights in Mornington House. Warwick and Anne, the owners, provide genuine hospitality in their house filled with family memorabilia. Pleasant lounge where guests congregate for tea, optional drinks and after dinner tea or coffee. Large dining room where breakfast and optional dinner are served. We enjoyed the large well appointed bedroom and separate bathroom. Walled well tended garden with sitting area. Most enjoyable experience during our two week trip in Ireland.
Wonderful house, terrific food, and great grounds. My wife and I stayed in the smaller back bedroom, very cozy and nice. The hosts, Warrick and Anne, couldn't have been more accommodating or gracious. This is the closest thing I have ever experienced to a real weekend at a country house. We look forward to staying here again.
A very warm welcome awaits you in Mornington House. Warwick and Anne are consummate hosts. We immediately felt at home and thoroughly enjoyed our stay. This really is a place to switch off and relax. We borrowed wellies and walked down to the lake through the forest and then wandered around the garden. Warwick and Anne are full of family stories and the history of the house. Anne is a fabulous cook and we enjoyed a delicious meal in a relaxed atmosphere. Warwick's breakfast was superb, made with local produce and freshly laid eggs provided by Mornington's own hens. The accommodation was very comfortable and we slept well in beautifully laundered bed linen. We are looking forward to returning to Mornington House and we would highly recommend a visit.
We loved our stay at Mornington! Anne and Warwick served up delightful conversation along with a lovely afternoon cup of tea as we arrived. Our room was beautiful, large, clean and had wonderful linens and feather pillows and gave us the best nights sleep we’d had in days! Breakfast was absolutely delicious - not sure why, as it was typical hearty meal with fresh fruit, pancakes, eggs etc., but the best we had on our trip. Before leaving, we wandered the grounds and walled garden - a nostalgic glimpse into another era surrounded by the beautiful fields and walk to the lake. Treat yourself to a stay - charming couple and home!
