I stayed at The Meadows with my sister and sister-in-law. We had a bit of difficulty finding them (I forgot to print out the directions), but simply asked a few pedestrians and eventually found our way. It was well worth the effort. This was my 3rd trip to Ireland, and I found the owners of this B&B to be the warmest & most genuine of all my stays.
The rooms were excellent (with views of the beautiful gardens). My sister-in-law's single room was huge (I'm thinking that they may have put her in a double, if they weren't fully booked. I shared a twin room with my sister, which was also quite roomy, but I really envied that single!)
It is a bit outside the center of town, but it's certainly walkable for someone with strong legs. We took the easy route, though, and gratefully accepted the husband's offer of a ride into town (we took a cab back).
The breakfast was also excellent, and the breakfast room had a lovely view of the garden (a great way to start the day). When I asked for a bit of advice on our drive into Dublin, they printed out directions for me & spent quite a bit of time explaining how we could do some sightseeing & still reach the city at a good hour.
I was a little bit nervous about this B&B because I didn't see a lot of reviews for it, but I'm so glad that we chose this one. I highly recommend this B&B, for the rooms, the breakfast & the warmth of the hosts!
