Terrible place no breakfast no tea making facilities in the room one station TV the very minimal and most basic place dark and way off the beaten track. The place is the opposite to what you expect from Irish hospitality and is not offering budget prices for hostel like accommodation..disgrace
Comfortable B&B, Kathy makes you very welcome. Easy to take an evening stroll down to Cong and back. Wi-fi, good food: we have used the B&B a couple of times and have also rented the adjoining self-catering (which would get 4 stars).
This is a good b & b outside Cong. Kathy is a good host, tea and biscuits on arrival and a reasonable breakfast. The bedroom was clean with a great view. The bathroom was also clean and well presented. All in all a good place to stay.
We stayed here 2 nights for a wedding at Ashford Lodge. Kathy was the loveliest host, making us feel so welcome, putting on a great breakfast and going out of her way to look after us. Made our stay really memorable. The place is very good value for money. We would go there again if ever in the area. Thank you Kathy and family!
Lovely B&B with a gracious hostess. Tea at the ready upon arrival, excellent breakfast. It is a bit out of town, and up a narrow lane, but don't let that put you off. The room was comfortable and well appointed, as was the rest of the house.
Overall impression was adequate without justification for a 4 star rating. We had bedroom 4 (one of the 3) nor sure of the others as was only our experience and view. Room was adequately furnished but a little freyed around the edges. Lightbulb blown . Bed was 5’ but unfortunately no duvet just sheets and blankets which were too small and were for a 4 ‘ 6’ bed I think which meant they didn’t stay or tuck in adequately and met with a difficult nights sleep - Who doesn’t have duvets nowadays? Furniture OK but chipped and several marks on carpet. Bathroom was the main disappointment with only a very small shower with questionable water pressure and chipped shower tray. Significant black mould around seals and shower doors which would be easily removed given bleach and a toothbrush. Stained and dirty grout in tiles was not attractive. Toilet seat loose which met with interesting movement whilst sitting. Sink took around a minute to drain away Towels not really big enough. Breakfast OK but pre-cooked I think which meant tough bacon and sausages Otherwise plenty of toast and tea/coffee/fruit/yogurts served with a smile. Mrs O’Connor was friendly and welcoming , her husband although heard was never seen . We paid 75 Euros per night and didn’t think it was bad value but not worthy of its 4 star rating. However there are plenty of B&B,s around the Cong area competing for business and we will pass on this one next time..…
Stayed here last night and were given an apartment with kitchen and living room. Upstairs was the bedroom. A lovely Irish brekky was served by the owner. Bed was cosy and clean. Shower was good. Lovely gardens with cows and sheep and good parking. Cong is a lovely place to visit. Good car parking
I arrived to be met by Dermot, the husband of Kathy as she was out shopping. It is Kathy who seems to manage everything as regards the B&B. I was offered tea on several occasions as well as the loan of a bike and I felt really at home. My room was beautiful and looked out onto the stunning garden. I had two lovely breakfasts and a really relaxing stay at a B&B that was only a 10 minute walk from the lovely village of Cong - the setting for the 1952 film The Quiet Man. I cannot recommend it highly enough!!
A family welcome from the moment we got there.. Tea and biscuits were offered on arrival and Kathy was genuine in wanting to get to know us whilst offering us a lift in to Cong so we could celebrate our very new news that we had got engaged on the ferry over! She never stopped the whole time we were there.. making us tea, maintaining the beautiful garden, asking us about our day, planning what ever we wanted for breakfast the next day at whatever time we wanted, cleaning the rooms when guests were out, giving us tips about which pub had live music in at night. Nothing was too much trouble! The room was beautiful and clean.. We were very sad to leave our little home. We were free to leave and come as we like, feeling safe that the door locked automatically and that the area was safe to walk at night. It was my birthday during our stay which Kathy made extra special by laying out a balloon, cards and flowers at breakfast time which my family had sent over and Kathy had kept secret as a surprise for me. Wouldn't hesitate to recommend to family and friends and can't wait to return. Tanks a million!…
Stayed recently on business, beautiful house, tastefully decorated, Kathy is an excellent host , anything you need is no trouble. Great advice on the area, restaurants etc. Although I was here working would return again for pleasure. Next time I am in the area for work will be booking in again.. its a great place to stay, Mike, Cork
