Your review is very much appreciated, thank you.
Ballindrum Farm was a beautiful BnB. It is nestled on farmland with views for miles! Mary was a wonderful host and was extremely welcoming and sweet. Breakfast was delightful each morning and she was happy to cook whatever we desired from the menu she provided. I loved how she had fresh baked goodies each morning as well and this definitely added a homely touch to our stay.
The only two issues my husband and I had was that the bed was not very comfortable and we found that it was quite firm with little cushion. We were in Athy county for an obstacle race and a firm bed is not the most desirable choice for sleeping after something like this. A bed liner or cushion would have greatly helped. Also, the crows on the farm are unbearably loud! Both nights we stayed we had to sleep with our noise cancelling headphones on in an attempt to drown out the crows and get sleep. The walls were extremely thin as well, so you can hear everything that other guests are doing which is rough when people are up until 11pm and you are desperately trying to sleep.
Overall this was a good BnB. Our issues are not something the host would have a lot of control over. We most likely would not stay here again, but it was a good option for us and close to the race course we needed to get to for our Spartan.
Thank you for the very comprehensive review. We loved the chocolates, thank you.
There are just no words to describe how exceptional this trip was and it was mostly due to how well Mary took care of us! The B & B was so warm & welcoming and Mary & her beautiful family went above & beyond to care for all the guests. I can not recommend her enough! She was a fountain of information, helped point us in the right direction when we left for travel during the day and ensured that we started each day off with a wonderful breakfast. The entire experience was great. If you are looking for a place to stay while traveling in Athy, do not miss out on this experience. Thank you Mary!! We miss you terribly!
Dear Triona and Friends, it was a pleasure to meet you all. Thank you for staying at Ballindrum Farm.
Mary greeted us with open arms! We felt right at home at the Ballindrum Farm with the Holstein cows. We live in dairy cow country in Maryland and it was great to stay at a farm B and B. The room was comfortable and the shower was fantastic! Breakfast was absolutely delicious! The homemade scones and jams were wonderful. We will be back soon!! Thank you Mary!
We love your review, thank you.
We stayed 3 nights at Marys lovely b and b. The fact it was a working dairy farm encouraged us to stay there and check life on the farm. Rooms were very comfortable, well appointed and breakfast magnificent. Mary was incredibly obliging and helpful with advise and suggestions on where to go and what to see. We throughly recommend Balindrun Farm.
Thank you Graham for your lovely comments.
Our host Mary was amazing ... very friendly, efficient, constantly in motion, with just the right amount of attention without being intrusive. We arrived in the early evening and were quickly settled in and offered a pot of tea which came with scones fresh out of the oven. Room was not overly spacious for a family of 4 but bathroom was quite nice, and the common areas on the first floor plus the lovely farm all around mean you won't spend much time in your room. Quiet, comfortable beds. The heifers and the chickens were obviously used to being fed and would approach people near the fences. Wonderful breakfast with buffet items and made to order hot items from a menu. Good overall value for the money.
Thank you for the lovely review and all the aspects of our service that you mentioned.
