Stayed here for one night 19th may. we were extremely well looked after by Ann and the 'Storyteller' Brigid Who regaled us with some great stories etc. and made our brief stay memorable (thank you Ladies ) The Ensuite Room was warm,Comfortable and Very clean. there is also free secure parking and the location is just a very short distance from the famed Cistercian Trappist Mount Mellary Abbey . .The Pilgrims rest offers Value and I recommend it.

I stayed at the Pilgrims Rest over a weekend while hiking up Knockmealdown with a group of friends. This would be one of the most interesting places I have ever stayed and one I am least likely to forget. We arrived at the hotel late on a Friday night after crawling over a mountain in extremely dense fog. Upon arrival we were greeted by a lovely couple who had prepared a wholesome meal for us in advance at a very reasonable price. The hotel itself is different to what one would expect. When you walk in the door it feels more like a religious retreat. Nearly everything, from the furniture to the paintings, to the bed sheets, to architecture of each room all reawaken memories of visiting your grandparents house as a child. The hotel is very quiet, there are other guests, but you

We have just left there after staying a week, the hosts David and Mary were lovely and always asked how we were, how our day was, how we slept etc, both very nice polite people. The room was nice and warm, a lovely bed to rest after busy days. Luckily when we arrived, even though we were early, we were allowed straight to our room and found it just how we would need. We paid for breakfast each morning and our hosts would always offer tea/coffee and even offer the cooked breakfast although we never had it, apart from one day when we had boiled eggs which were cooked to perfection. The hotel is so peaceful you barely even notice the other guests there. The road leading to the hotel was a bit bumpy (obviously nothing to do with the hotel) but the views you end up seeing make the

This is very reasonably priced accommodation, has safe parking, clean warm rooms, nice sitting room, all types of Tea is available self service, it even has biscuits in the Tea room! It is quiet and peaceful, is one of the cheapest available establishments in the country, and the overall standard is excellent. This is as good as most three star hotels that I stay in, at between a half and one third of the price for a single room, (and I stay at hotels and B&B's about 150 nights a year through my work).
