“Miriam made the Old Bank really special”
Reviewed 20 June 2013

Miriam was so full of energy and enthusiasm she made an excellent B and B into something really outstanding. We spent a night at the Old Bank as part of a cycle tour of Ireland. Miriam made us feel really welcome, the room was excellent and the breakfast set us up for the day.

The Old Bank Bed and Breakfast was simply put amazing. From the moment we arrived to our last pass through the door we were treated as long time friends. Everything was always super clean and in good working order. The food was great, you could tell it was freshly prepared not pre-made and sitting under a heating lamp. The staff was very friendly and very helpful every time we had a question. The rooms were very nice, much better than I had expected with the age of the building, all of the renovations were done thoughtfully and executed very well. The location is perfect in the little town, walking distance to the store, pharmacy, and restaurants, and there is a gas station a few minutes away. Without any doubt I will return to the Old Bank B&B the next time I return to Ireland!

Room Tip: Don't hesitate to ask for any advice/help, the staff is amazing and will be glad to answer your...

Thank you so much for taking the time to Write this beautiful review.

I'm delighted you enjoyed your stay with us and While the Breakfast may take a few minutes longer to cook, I do believe that nothing should be pre cooked before our Guests order.

We would love to welcome you back to our home

I have stayed at The Old Bank B&B on a number of occassions and have always been extremely satisfied with the accommodation and the service provided. Miriam, the proprieter, does a great job in ensuring a warm welcome and the highest standards of service. The rooms are large, well furnished and equipped, and very comfortable. Thoroughly recommended.

While the amenities are outstanding, it is Miriam that made this the best experience we have had. She is always bright and cheery, made the best Irish breakfasts you can imagine, and to top it off, she was able to make suggestions to our daily journeys - based on her extensive local knowledge - that saved us much time and money, and added wonderful sights and experiences that we would have missed. We left feeling like lifelong friends, and can't wait to return.

Room Tip: Let Miriam know your specific needs. She was able to "upgrade" my son's room to a rom...

This was one of the best b&b's my husband and I stayed at in Ireland. The Inn's owner Miriam checked us on early, leaving her son's birthday party to assist us. She gave us great suggestions from where to go for dinner, a lake to walk around to see local sights, to an truly breathtaking castle to see the next day. We loved the personal touches for our honeymoon decorated our room with rose petals and even left us a cute pamphlet on Ireland honeymoon customs. The jacuzzi was a special treat and needed after our long walk after dinner. The Old Bank in is an amazing spot to stay at. Bruff is a cute town with a lot to offer. Stop here and you will be pleased you did!
