Avril and Robyn were perfect hosts. The house is beautiful. The gardens were lovely. The dog and horses were very cordial. Couldn't recommend it more highly. Susan & Dick Bringardner

Simply the best B&B I have ever stayed in.
Attention to detail is their strong point. Nothing is left to chance. This is a refurbished property that has all modern conveniences without detracting from the character.
Internet piped to the room, and the powerfullest shower ever. Not to mention free coffee and excellent home baking.
Also the location is perfect for touring the neighborhood counties of Carlow, Kilkenny, Offaly etc even if Laois itself isn't famous as a holiday destination, as a base it is ideal.

Hi, we stayed fir o e night but we felt like we were family. Both owners gave us all the help we needed, made us feel so welcome and I can't wait to come back.
We stayed with our niece and nephew in September 2011 and hope to be back in 3 years.

Room Tip: Have no concerns and don't bother with the others in the town, this is the best we looked

We just returned from a month long vacation in Ireland. We stayed almost exclusively in B and B's and ended up staying over a week with Robyn and Avril at Sandymount. They were without a doubt the friendliest and most accommodating hosts we had. Since we enjoyed all of the places we stayed, it is indeed high praise. Sandymount is a wonderfully renovated, elegant country house made even more special by the warm hospitality. We arrived as strangers and departed good friends. We will definitely return to Ireland and our first stop will be Sandymount House.

We came across Sandymount House on our last night in Ireland. All I can say is its a beautiful home and Avril and Robbin made us feel so welcome, part of the family!! The rooms are gorgeous and the showers WOW!! We will be back very soon to see Avril & Robbin and spend a lot more time at Sandymount. Our only disappointment.....we found it on our last night, I could have stayed there the entire time!! The best hidden gem in Ireland, a massive recommendation from me!!

Room Tip: All the rooms were decorated beautifully, you won't be disappointed!!

Sandymount House is very lovely and looks newly renovated. Our room was nicely decorated. The bath was very nice. Breakfast was delicious and served in a very nice dining room with wonderful views of the grounds. The owners were gracious, and we enjoyed chatting with them over tea, biscuits and scones on arrival. We had just arrived in Ireland and they offered great information about sites we planned to visit, local restaurants, etc. We had a problem with our cellphone, and Avril took me to the cellphone store in town to try to resolve the problem. We would love to return!
