Excellent B&B, the owners were lovely and friendly, house is immaculate, room was very spacious, breakfast was lovely, great rate for what you get, 5minutes from centre parcs. would definitely stay here again.
Lovely to look out the window at the nice garden and all the children playing and screaming, great atmosphere, I mean who wants peace and quiet anyway? After that, the great atmosphere continued- until about 1 AM with a party downstairs.. Excellent stuff, mind you it may not suit some people! It was real nice of one of the women from the party to drop into our bedroom at midnight just to say hello!! Well, didn't really matter as we were not asleep anyway!! My breakfast next morning was on it's own holiday- in Greece! juice was nice with the vintage porridge but the strawberries could have done with a haircut, but at least there was just one hair. Overall certainly different from what we're used to and quite an experience but I think we will stick to hotels from now on!
Wonderful accomodation. The host was very friendly and hopeful. Perfect breakfast. If your near Longford, try Abbeyview house, you´ll wont regret it. 5star accomodation and i´m sure i will return. Nice pub a few meters away.
Just returned from a 3 night stay at this charming family run Abbeyview House B&B. We were given a lovely spacious, and warm cosy family room. The beds were really comfy and with no road noise, we both slept through a very heavy and windy all night downpour, to bright sunshine and a delicious and filling breakfast with the most scrumptious golden scrambled eggs, from the hosts own free range Hens. Possibly the best I've ever tasted. We are planing to revist Abbeyview House in the the future.
After booking over the phone and being initially accepted, then rejected on the day with an excuse of some plumbing issue in the house (and booked in another place 10km further), and then again, after explaining that I was counting on staying there because we needed to stop in Abbeyshrule for the night, finally the owner decided to accept us in her B&B, saying that the plumber would sort out the problem straight away. I don't know why she did that, probably she was presuming that we were not showing up and maybe some other people were enquiring about staying there. I still think anyway that there were no maintenance issues, because the place was full of other guests on that evening; at the end, all of this situation has created some unnecessary stress on us. And maybe, for the piece of mind of the owner and our one, it would have been better to book this place through the booking website. At the arrival the lady warned me about her children being noisy, and unfortunately it was true, screaming and shouting in the evening and early morning. Breakfast ok, despite not a big variety of choices and very little alternative hot breakfast for vegetarians. The breakfast room was very unwelcoming, with one big table in the middle, possibly to be shared with other guests if eating at the same time; and also the dubious taste in decorating the walls with animal blood sport paintings, a real turn off for enjoying the food and also not matching with the bright and tasteful modernisation of this very nice period house. Our room was nice and the place very clean. In general, as a overall experience, I did not feel very welcomed in this accommodation, and that was a pity because , as I said, it was a very nice house…
Stayed here on a cycling holiday, very closed proximity to the Greenway and bike storage facilities were excellent. Bedroom and facilities had everything needed, breakfast set us up for our days cycling. Susan was a fantastic host and most helpful.
My mum and I stayed in Abbeyview last night and had the most wonderful experience. The house and garden are fabulous. The owners were fantastically accommodating in term of our arriving and leaving times and had a shed with a socket to charge a bike. The house itself is within walking distance of the village where you can get food in the Rustic Inn. A brilliantly restored house which is a credit to the owners. If I'm in abbeyshrule again I'll certainly stay here.
Excellent accommodation in a relaxed country setting, spotlessly clean, friendly service and a great breakfast ! Very convenient for anybody cycling the Royal Canal Greenway and walking distance from the village of Abbeyshrule. Thank you !!
Spent two nights in Abbeyview house with our young family (9 and 7). The house is lovely and the family room was great. Susan is a very friendly host and helped us organise anything we needed to in the surrounding area. Lovely and relaxing breakfasts. Would recommend the place highly.
Last time I stayed in a B&B was the 80’s. Abbey view House has changed my mind completely. Stayed here with my grown up family for a night and we all loved it. Lovely rooms, a warm welcome from Susan the host and a fab Irish breakfast. I would highly recommend a stay.
