I had the pleasure of staying in Cedarwood House a few weeks ago as myself & my partner were attending a nearby Wedding. I am so utterly shocked to see some disapproving reviews of this establishment as our experience contributed to a wonderful weekend. Upon our arrival the hosts greeted us with Hot & Cold Beverages along with confectionery's. This for me was a delightful welcoming as we had traveled all morning & knew it would be quite some time before our meal at the function. The weather was simply stunning due to the recent good spell and the house was lovely and fresh with our room windows open. From a below comment I understand some other residents found there to be dust in there rooms, which we did not experience at all. I However i do know from having my own windows open most nights over the past few weeks in my home that i have came into contact with lots of dust travelling in along with insects & this is a natural uncontrollable factor? I found the house to have its very own character & thought the decor although not to my personal taste very fitting with the owners personality's & indeed the location of Cedarwood House. When we arrived I witnessed a young lady performing housekeeping duties satisfying the house was well maintained. From the number of guests from the Wedding we attended alone staying in Cedarwood I would highly believe they experience a very busy business each week with the local Wedding Venue. Therefore I would find it difficult to believe the house is not regularly cleaned and would be in an unsatisfying condition in every room?? The lady owner Josie was very pleasant to us at all times & made us feel very comfortable in her home.I found the room which we stayed to be very cosy & relaxing. The bed was very comfortable & i had a fantastic nights sleep. We attended breakfast the next morning at around 9.30am and helped ourselves to a delightful spread. We were asked if we would like to be served the day previous but were more than happy to help ourselves as it meant we could choose as much as we liked. I understand some people may prefer to be plated breakfast but i found the facilities in the dining room very satisfactory. My partner whom has a love for food even after 1 or 2 many Guinness the night before definitely made the most of the self service. We checked out with Josie's husband and had a lovely little chat with him before heading on our way, he was very helpful with providing us directions to return home via Mullingar. Overall my partner and I had a very enjoyable stay & would be delighted to stay here again on any occasion.
