Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 20 June 2016

Spacious B&B in the heart of Bruff in the Old Bank Building, Really quaint. Miriam the owner is incredible...running a B&B with 4 kids! Her husband the butcher does all the meats for her breakfasts which was yummmmy! I love the traditional Irish Breakfasts.

Room Tip: Fun place to stay.

Miriam has got to be one of the most amazing hosts I've had the pleasure of staying with! Her friendliness and knowledge of the county, really made our stay in Ireland. Miriam told us the best spots to drink/eat at and where to explore. If it wasn't for Miriam, we would have completely missed Lough Gur and the fairy rings.

Our room was gorgeous! The photos really don't do it justice! We had our own bathroom which had a jacuzzi bathtub, which was amazing after our long drive. Our bed was huge and so so comfortable! There was a TV in the room, but with all this amazing countryside we never used it.

If you want a place to stay filled with Irish hospitality, you'd be a fool not to stay with Miriam! Thank you Miriam!

I booked this B&B because of the reviews, and it lives up to all the hype. The service top rate, the room as spacious, the decor delightful, and the hostess is a wonder woman. When we left in the morning she was getting three kids ready for school, cooking breakfast, and had time to give us advice for our day’s travels, all while being amicable and unflappable… wow.

This place is worth going out of your way for.

The Old Bank was an oasis after a day of traveling. We had been Miriam the weeks leading up to our trip, discussing our travel route. She was happy to give us suggestions and opinions on what was worth seeing our first time in Ireland. And then the day of we were running late to check in which is 6 to 9 as it says all over the Old Bank's website. We worried we wouldn't make it in time to eat at the the old bake house restaurant in town. We emailed Miriam and let her know we were running late, she called the restaurant and had them stay open a little later just for us and it was the best dinners we had had in Ireland. The bed and breakfast was beautifully restored, breakfast in the morning was delicious, and Miriam and her family were wonderful people. I would definitely recommend staying at the Old Bank

Room Tip: Miriam is happy to accommodate and give suggestions on your trip. Especially if you email her prior
