“Really an amazing experience - would love to return!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 7 October 2006

Four of us turned up at Drumkeerin B&B on our bikes in the pouring rain, having cycled from Belfast. The steep slog up the driveway was hard work, but the welcome at the top made up for it! Mary and Joe were the most wonderful hosts. They greeted us and showed us to our lovely, cosy, clean rooms, then.....as it was getting late and we wanted to head back down the hill to town for dinner, Joe DROVE us to the pub. This is after Mary took some of our clothes and put them in the dryer for us!

This was an amazingly hospitable town. (as well as beautiful with some lovely architecture). The owner of Mary McBride's Pub drove us home after dinner as we would have to wait so long for a taxi!

We woke to a lovely breakfast with some of Mary's fresh baking, wonderful conversation with our hosts, great views out the window, and unfortunately had to leave! Not before Joe loaned one of our party his wet-weather gear to cycle home with. We were AMAZED at how lovely an experience this was and would love to go back.

The walls of the B&B are decorated with artworks which we discovered were Joe and Mary's. They are both professionally trained artists and they even hold painting retreats at Drumkeerin. We are also tempted by this:)
