Peggy O'Neill's is a charming family run bed and breakfast located on the Golden road, three minutes walk from the centre of Cashel. Peggy has been welcoming guests into her home for over a decade and she provides homely yet very comfortable accommodation and huge hearty breakfasts at a very reasonable price. Peggy's is a 3 minute walk from the centre of Cashel Town and a 10 minute walk from the Rock of Cashel.Peggy O'Neill's unique selling point is the wonderful view of Hore abbey from the back of the property. Hore Abbey (also Hoare Abbey, sometimes known as St.Mary's) is a ruined Cistercian monastery near the Rock of Cashel, County Tipperary, Republic of Ireland.'Hore' is thought to derive from 'iubhair' – yew tree. The former Benedictine abbey at Hore was given to the Cistercians by Archbishop David MacCearbhaill (in 1270), who later entered the monastery. He endowed the Abbey generously with land, mills and other benefices previously belonging to the town. The story, beloved of tour-guides, that he evicted the Benedictines after a dream that they were about to kill him, is unlikely to be true and probably arises from the Archbishop's 'interference' with the commerce of the city of Cashel. His disfavour of the established orders in Cashel certainly caused local resentment. He was resented by some of the towns-people, being considered too much in favour of the Irish by the more Anglicised. This is evident in the objection by the thirty-eight local brewers to the levy of two flagons out of every brewing and in the murder of two monks who were visiting the town.

Loved the view of Hore Abbey and the quiet location within easy walking distance of Cashel and the Rock. Jim is a great host with loads of personality. Be prepared, he will entertain you and may intimidate the faint of heart, but he is full of information, wit, and Irish

Jim was a riot, breakfast was fresh cooked and good, and the view out the window of Hore Abbey was wonderful, but the room itself felt cramped, even though the bed was a full, not a queen, and there wasn’t room for much of anything besides bed and end tables. Jim says he is

We enjoyed our stay from the moment Jim greeted us in the parking area. We slept well in our cozy room, were entertained with stories by our host, and ate a yummy Irish breakfast. The Rock of Cashel and Abby ruins were short walks from the B&B. Thank you for a wonderful start to
