This B&B is located in a working farm and has a gorgeous setting. The room was nice and comfortable and clean. However, what makes us want to come back to this place is the owner Mary. She was born to be in the hospitality business: she is attentive to the guests needs, cooks the perfect breakfast with home made scones, eggs to order, fresh cream, yogurt, bread, fresh fruits and went above and beyond to welcome us at almost 8:30 pm with a cup of tea, scones, jam and cream. We were driving in from Dublin airport after a long flight and this B&B is conveniently located. Excellent place to stay to get rid of jet lag very fast. We felt so welcomed as if we were arriving at a dear friends house. So nothing else can beat that. Kudos to you Mary!
Staying with Mary is a real treat. We stayed for the second ( or maybe third) time last week and we had our adult children with us. Always a lovely welcome with tea and scones and nothing is too much trouble. Mary is so accommodating and her home is lovely. Quiet setting on a dairy farm . Her sons were eager to help and answer questions and the home is just lovely. The new addition of a family/game room is beautiful. I feel like we are home at Mary's B&B. Breakfast was amazing ! Won't stay anywhere else near Athy, my ancestral home !!!! Thanks so much, Mary.
This is the best B&B I have stayed in and the service from Mary and her family would put a lot of 5 star Hotels to shame. Afternoon tea with homemade scones and homemade jam, an idyllic setting, what more could you ask for? We will certainly be returning.
Mary and her husband have a truly amazing farm and B & B! We were so blessed to have found her superb location! The apt adjacent to the main home was where we stayed with our teenage son. This was perfect. The entire suite is handicap accessible and it was absolutely spotless clean! Mary was so accommodating offering restaurants, directions and her cooking is SUPERB! We spent our last night in Ireland here and found it a quick run to Dublin to the airport. Mary served one of the best breakfasts we had during our 2 week stay! and that's such a super end to a wonderful trip home to visit friends and cousins. I wish we could have stayed longer and enjoyed the beauty of the midlands a bit more.
We arrived at Ballindrum farm on an extremely wet Saturday afternoon, where we were met by Mary who runs the bed and breakfast, she so friendly welcoming us to her home her friendliness bought a ray of sunshine into an otherwise pretty dismal day. Once she had shown us to our rooms and we were settled in we were given another a lovely surprise of tea and coffee with homemade scones and homemade jam, it was wonderful. Even though Mary was going out that evening she couldn't do enough for us. We were staying here as we visiting The Curragh racecourse on the next day and before we left we had a lovely breakfast. We stayed here for 2 nights and would have happily stayed here for longer and look forward to staying here again when we return to this part of Ireland.
