Mary has a masters in education and taught school for 32 years. She retired last year to take care of the B&B. She does a masterful job. Well organized and gracious. We felt as if we were staying at a relatives home. Our room was comfortable and pretty. Coffee, tea and cookies in the room were a bonus. We arrived...

Ballindrum is an archetypical Farm B&B which is the centre of a working dairy Farm surrounded by beautiful Irish counrtryside. Look out of your window to watch the chickens pecking happily away in their free range pen with the odd escapee making it 'over the wire' - although why they would want to get away from this haven I am...

Mary's Bed and Breakfast was the best B&B that we stayed at in Ireland & scotland. Mary was very accommodating & extremely nice. It was truly a delight to stay two nights at her place. It was very clean. It was a real treat to see new born cows and how the milking takes place. I would highly recommend her...

On our way to lovely Kenmare/Kerry, we stopped for the night at Ballindrum B&B. While much has been written about Irish gentle and caring demeanour, this is a real treat. Savoury and varied breakfast, spacious and comfortable accommodation (4 of us), and great chat with Mary on farming, family, and the wonders of technology. Everything you'd expect from a well-run...

Great place t spend the weekend. You get pampered with fresh scones and tea on arrival. a great breakfast and spotlessly clean accommodation. We stayed on the ground floor. maybe next time I would choose the first floor. Reduces floor noise.

First of all, I'm about to spend my night here, but I already feel compelled to say what a delight it has been so far. I'm overnighting as I've been in Kildare for work; and I'm travelling back to London later today. It took the cab driver a little while to find it, but we called Mary for directions and...

Booked this online and arrived early evening after flying in. Mary greeted us and showed us to our very comfy room. View from our upstairs room was beautiful. Breakfast was amazing.
