The Fox Rock Inn is located in the quiet farm setting of Clogh, (County Laois) yet is just minutes to all the main motorways to get you off to where you want to be. At the end of each day's exploring we always looked forward to returning to the peace and solitude of the Fox Rock Inn, bordered by rolling green pastures and star-studded night skies (no light pollution out here!) Our big, bright spotlessly-clean room with a quality mattress ensured a great night's sleep plus the modern ensuite bathroom with loads of endless hot water was a real treat. Breakfast was made to order and kept us going for the whole day. The attached "Mary's Bar" was the ideal way to end the night with a pint & bag of crisps while meeting the friendly quiet locals who, along with the owners, Sean and Marian, were always pleased to share suggestions & directions of the many attractions the surrounding area offered. You can't go wrong here!
