My husband and I just returned from a weekend in County Kildare. We stayed at Ballindrum Farm and had a wonderful time. On Arrival Mary greeted us with coffee and fresh homemade scones and jam. Delicious! Our room and the ensuite bathroom were spotless, with views over the fields. The breakfast in the morning was plentiful and tasty. Freshly made fruit salad, different cereals, home baked breads and home made jam, freshly squeezed Orange Juice, coffee or tea, and a selection of cooked breakfasts with toast. Yummy! We had a wonderful stay at Ballindrum Farm and can highly recommend it. Mary and Vincent definitely deserve every award they have received so far and more. Best B&B we have stayed at.

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 2 hrs earlier than scheduled and were greeted with a smile, homemade scones, jellies, tea, and coffee. Our room was ready too. The breakfast the next morning was fantastic. We chose the traditional Irish breakfast which was made to order. Delicious! The B&B is located on a beautifully kept farm with chickens, cows, beautiful flowers and grounds. You can watch milking of the cows 2x day. The eggs don't get any fresher. You won't go wrong staying here.

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 not sure! The cows in this busy farm are milked daily and with the consent of the charming host, Vincent, you may be able to watch the early milking which is a fascinating and highly mechanised operation. The young heffers gambol in the surrounding fields and even if the weather is gloomy the mood is soon lifted by the gourmet breakfast soon to follow. Returning to the farmhouse you are met by the ubiquitous and effivescent landlady, Mary, who will

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 B&B to anyone thinking about staying.

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 B&B plus a personal, charming touch. To top it all off, we had a chance to attend the morning milking process -a highly automated affair these days. Major thumbs up for Ballindrum B&B!
