Lovely stay. Good parking. Great location. Delicious breakfast. We stayed two nights, had the half Irish the first day and the porridge the next. The porridge was very good and filling. The room was good and clean. The house was a little tricky to find. Exact GPS coordinates would have been helpful.

We chose Launard House because the relatively high ratings. The good - quiet location a short distance from the Centre of town; the breakfast. The not so good - no shampoo or bar soap; uncomfortable chairs (see photo); shortage of outlets. This B&B had no owner presence, something we expect for a B&B, local ownership with assistance in places to... More

We were very happy with our stay at Launard House. We were warmly greeted and loved our room. It was among the cleanest and most comfortable during our vacation. The B&B is within walking distance of the city center if you're up for walking (which we were). Our host gave multiple ideas for dinner and even made some notes on... More

This B&B is relatively easy to find and provides parking. It is a 15 minute walk to the town centre if you are up to it. There are no restaurants very close to it so worth the stroll to the centre. Our hosts were very friendly and they gave us very good tips on where to eat and what to... More

Me and my family booked this for our 1st and 2nd nights stay in Oct 2015. The host Sharon was lovely, the rooms were well kept and spacious. The easy access to town and shop were within walking distance, or you could find parking in town. I would stay here again.

Welcomed promptly and shown to our room. Shown options for breakfast the next morning. We were given suggestions for where to have dinner that night and what was still open at 6pm for touring. The beds were comfortable and had a good night sleep. There is some outdoor space to relax

We stayed one night and left very early in the morning. Sharon gave us some fruit the night before to have in the morning since it would be too early for breakfast, so that was thoughtful! The room was fine, the hotel not too far from the main part of town. The wifi strength wasn't very strong which was frustrating... More

My husband and I stayed here for one night during our trip to Ireland. The room itself was fine, but we got little to no sleep due to one of the staff being up late watching loud tv from 1am-4:30am in the room next to ours. The owners were not around in the morning to voice our concern to. Our... More
