Fort House B & B
Ranked #4 of 6 Kilbeggan B&B and Inns
Reviewed 24 April 2014

Not normally a B&B frequenter, we stayed at Fort House at the recommendation of a relative; we are so glad we did. We found our host, Dan, to be a charming inn keeper who is very knowledgeable about the area. The location is perfect for exploring the Irish countryside, quaint towns, and sleepy villages. We stayed in a very comfortable en-suite and thoroughly enjoyed our full Irish breakfast each morning (to the detriment of my waistline). We will certainly plan to return when we next visit Ireland.

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!

Dear Foritwas Mary,
Thank you so much for your very encouraging comments,it often takes another persons perspective to make us fully appreciate what rustic beauty we have in rural Ireland and you presence and perspectives made your visit at least as enjoyable for us as it was for you.
You and your friends will be most welcome to call again and truly left more joy and appreciation with us than ever expected.
Wishing you and yours all the Joys and Blessings that Easter brings.
