Going to a concert in Lismore Castle on our way back from Cork Airport to near Carrick we decided at short notice to spend the night locally rather than drive home late in the dark on icy roads . Found this via Booking.com and booked as we were waiting for our flight to Cork. Good price, friendly and helpful owners, ample breakfast. Just what we needed after a week of grandparenting. Drove safely home the next morning. Would happily stay again if the opportunity arose.
A lovely period house with comfortable rooms, lashings of hot water, well cooked food and stunning surroundings. The staff were very helpful and the prices great. Wifi is a bit slow but considering how remote this place is thats not unusual.
We were made very welcome by the owners who were very pleasant obliging and helpful. The room had everything we wanted and the beds and bedding were very comfortable. The hotel is in very pleasant surroundings. Although we didn't eat there we spoke to other guests who were highly satisfied with the food. The place is very clean and very comfortably furnished. We would definitely return next time we're in Ireland !!
I had to travel to Tallow (Co. Waterford) for my Mother's funeral & my Son & Daughter, who came with me, booked us in here. I have to say that we could not fault anything. Staff, food, rooms, 5 stars.
We have stayed at the Pilgrims Rest several times and this stay was exactly as expected. The owners are friendly and helpful and went out of their way to make you welcome. We were a group visiting a nearby ancestral village and were able to have an excellent three course evening meal with relatives from the village on the second evening. Breakfast was cooked to order with a continental option at a reasonable extra charge. As for the rooms, at first glance the decor appears dated with heavy dark wood but in their own way attractive, very well restored and maintained. The rooms are large clean and comfortable with large en-suite bath and shower. A quiet good night's sleep. On site parking and good WiFi.
