We were made to feel very welcome and our room was spacious and we had everything that we needed including a skylight which was novel. The farmhouse had a sloping floor and the way in which it was tackled in our room, number 4, was cute. It was done out like the deck of a ship to make it level....

Definitely a 5 star B&B. Great breakfast. They really have the concept of hospitality down. Clean sheets and towels everyday. The view of the mountains are spectacular. Hosts are very gracious too. When I come back, I'll definitely stay here again.

This was my 3rd consecutive spring stay at Murphy's Farmhouse and it was as good a stay, if not better than the previous 2. This is absolutely one of the very best B&Bs I have ever stayed at in almost 40 years of travel on 5 continents where I rarely ever retrace my steps. If people make anything the better,...

A warm welcome awaits you at Murphy's farmhouse. The bed grabbed me, wrapped me up and I slept like a log! The breakfast was fantastic with continental, Irish, kippers and salmon on the menu. Beautiful views of the mountains.

Got as far as Castlemaine during a driving trip in Ireland so we just turned up at the door asking for a room. We were given one looking out on the front of the house & could see mountain scenery in the distance. The room was en-suite & everything was very clean. The only downside was that the shower was...

Located along a quiet lane there is plenty of parking at the front door. Our generously sized room was on the 1st floor overlooking the car park. The large double bed was very comfortable and we found the room to be nice & quiet. Recently renovated, the bathroom was also a good size but badly let down by a shower...

This B&B is nice, with a country farm feel. It is on a working dairy, with generations of family in and out. There is a nice sitting room to visit before turning in for the evening. The breakfast is hot and served to order, or they also offer a continental breakfast. Mrs. Murphy is a great hostess.

My wife and I stayed two nights here while in the midst of an independent driving tour of Ireland. It's away from any city (which only helps its appeal for us). Our room was comfortable and offered exactly what we needed. The old farmhouse has been updated and is well cared for. Our hosts were always friendly and helpful. We...
