I had a great stay at his B and B. The owner was very kind and helpful. I had wonderful conversations with him over tea and breakfast. The room was comfortable, quite and clean. The bed was big and my stay was very affordable.

Next to the steps up to the front door is a small welcoming herb garden, glorious with a border of tulips in April. Dan, the proprietor of Fort House, is not only a serious gardener, with well-tended hedgerows and a large polytunnel, but also a practiced forager of wild greens. If you are lucky he will offer you a green drink with breakfast; the morning I was there it consisted of kale, spinach, chard, dandelion, ginger, wild garlic, parsley, apple & pear. Dan also prepared porridge from locally grown organic oats -- delicious -- and perfectly seasoned scrambled eggs with mushrooms. As for the more usual breakfast beverages, a tea drinker will be happier than a coffee drinker.
The room was spacious, bright, and clean. Particularly appreciated were 100% cotton sheets on the bed (much more comfortable than blends), and the tall sink in the ensuite with, lo and behold, a mixer tap. The room's only fault was a weak & tepid shower, possibly due to too many guests showering in the evening.
Dan offers spot-on advice on where to eat, what to see, and where to go for a beautiful walk. He is very involved in the local community and made it easy to pack a lot into a one-night stay.

Fantastic experience, well fed every morning with an assortment of breakfast options and the hospitality from Dan was exceptional. Location was not far from Kilbeggan itself in the lovely Irish countryside. Highly recommended.

My husband and I stayed at Fort House while visiting Ireland. We found Fort House to be warm and welcoming. Our room was comfortable, meals delicious, and the company of our hosts was wonderful! Dan & Mary were very knowledgeable of the local area and its history; they even helped arrange travel to other areas of Ireland. We were able to see sights known only to the locals. Our hosts went above and beyond to make our stay absolutely perfect! We will be back!

My husband and I traveled to Ireland for our honeymoon and Fort House B&B was one of our accommodations. We only wished that our stay there was longer! The rooms were quaint and comfortable and Dan went above and beyond Irish hospitality for us. He also guided us to some great spots during our visit. Being close to Dublin, Fort B&B is very convenient location. We both hope that we have the opportunity to visit there again!

Fort House B&B accommodations were above expectations. Dan was more than accommodating, the house clean and cozy, and the surrounding area simply charming. The location was excellent. Only a short bus ride away from Dublin and many surrounding towns. Dan's involvement with the community and long-standing family history make him a talking guide to Westmeath and he was more than happy to help us along our way and make our stay comfortable. I would go back to Ireland (from the USA) just to visit Fort House and enjoy the quiet Irish life... with fast-pace-Dublin city nearby!

Wishing you and yours all the Joys and Blessings that Easter brings.

As a traveling American with friends, we had a wonderful stay at Fort House. We found the house and grounds absolutely charming, clean, and comfortable, while Dan was as nice and welcoming as could be. He is very involved with the community so he can help you find where you want to go, and everyone knows him. Dan was very accommodating to all of our needs and went clearly out of his way to help us enjoy our experience in Ireland. We stayed at Fort House for almost 10 days, and it certainly helped us to enjoy the wonderful country and leave us with a great lasting impression. I hope to go back soon, and I will most definitely stay at Fort House!

Room Tip: All the rooms are great and comfy, just depends on your needs for beds/space.
