We were so happy to see Maureen after a long day and she welcomed us warmly and got us settled in. Recommended a great place for dinner and when we came back, we enjoyed a nightcap with the chickens and a view of the ocean on the picnic table in her front garden. Stunning conservatory for breakfast, it was over the top wonderful! Thank you Maureen, we'll be back for sure!
A refreshing change. Maureen and the Mount Edward Lodge are the Ireland of hospitality, common sense and fresh eggs (if the hens and ducks are laying) from out the back. A sound night's sleep on a comfortable bed, great location with views out to Inishmurray and even Donegal, and around 4km from Grange with pubs (both foodie and more traditional). Great bathroom ensuite, and a 'lounge' to lounge around in amid cheerful family photos and a pile of books about Sligo and the wider west. Maureen has a raft of stories and observations about the area.
We stayed at this lovely B&B for 2 nights enjoying Maureen's hospitality. The views are simply beautiful and the hot breakfast is delicious (with quite a wide range of offerings). We very much enjoyed talking with other guests, which is easy to do in the dining room. There is also a few different sitting areas for guests to relax. Everything was very clean, the beds were comfy, and Maureen was helpful with her knowledge of the area. We would definitely stay here again if we're lucky enough to go back to Co Sligo. (Go to the Atlantic Sheepdog demonstration just down the road while you're here!)
Wonderful B&B with views of the countryside, mountains and ocean. The bed was the most comfortable I’ve ever encountered while traveling! The breakfasts were great, and the dining room has lovely views. Maureen is a great host and we really enjoyed chatting with her.
The room and breakfast was perfect. Amazing secluded location close enough to drive to nearby beaches and restaurants. Warm room, great shower, wide view of the landscape, beach a short drive down the road. 10/10
It's a bed & breakfast, not an hotel. First off the smell of artificial perfume hits you at the front door. That was a bad start. Advertising a room with a view of the sea is stretching it. The room valued at 90€ is way over priced (I paid 85€).The sea is 3 kms away. The room was too small, no room for bags. The bottles of cheap chemical soap almost empty, I also found sticky popcorn on the carpet. I reserved hopes of a fine breakfast. I should have lowered my expectations. I was travelling with my 90 year old mother and she was ignored for 30 minutes in the dining room while other guests ate their breakfast. I was out early taking photos and when I came back at 09.30 she had just been served. The service was at best minimalist. The owner served breakfast and then vanished. When I poured out the maple syrup it was completely moldy. (See photo). The honey jar which had no English written on it, I'm guessing it was Polish, was also almost empty.The scrambled egg was over-microwave cooked and the smoked salmon was way too salty. I'm amazed at all the positive reviews I found on other sites, and they are the reason I chose this place. My 90 year old mother never complains, but she did comment on being left waiting 30 minutes and at the unfriendly service. The worst however was yet to come! I paid and we left thinking never to return again. But after 4 hours driving around I discovered that we were missing a bag, so I called the BnB and the owner confirmed that my bag was still there. When I asked why she didn't call me to let me know she said that 'I thought you'd be gone too far'. I drove back and found my bag on the door step. Nobody answered me at the open door. No apologies! What bad service and example of Irish hospitality. It's our Irish "cead mile failte" that we're famous for! Well we certainly didn't find it here. I must add that at no point was our communication anything other than polite. I have been involved in the Irish hospitality industry for several decades and I know the difference between a well run and friendly establishment. We didn't find it here. This experience left a bad taste. I never give a bad review unless it's very bad, especially for my own industry and country.…
I stayed in mount Edward lodge for 1 night when I was working. Maureen was very welcoming on my arrival. The double room that I was staying in was fabulous . It was spacious, clean and the bed was extremely comfortable. I also had my own en-suite. The view from the window had lovely views of the mountain and Maureen’s beautiful garden. It was an extremely comfortable and enjoyable stay. I would highly recommend Maureen’s B&B.
I stayed with my mother in June 2021. The location is perfect with stunning views. The garden is beautiful and everywhere is thoroughly clean. We had a lovely spacious room, beds were so comfortable and additional touches in the bathroom. Great quality breakfast and plenty of choice. Well done Maureen and team and good luck with the re opening. Mary from Leitrim
Due to getting out of hospital incredibly late, a mix up with a previous hotel booking, and every hotel in Sligo being full, I arrived at Mount Edward Lodge in the middle of the night after calling the owner in the small hours of the morning. The host still welcomed me in despite being woken up and I had a very comfortable nights sleep. I would have been wandering around Sligo all night as a lone female if the owner hadn't been so accommodating.
We stayed 2 nights with Maureen. The room had beautiful sea views. The wash room was very small but perfectly serviceable. Everything was extremely clean. For breakfast there was a fabulous choice and the quality of the food was excellent. Highly recommend the eggs and smoked salmon. A great base to explore rugged Sligo.
