Reviewed 28 April 2013

Warm, cosy, clean, large, bright place.
Lovely large well-cooked breakfast-served with a smile.
Kathleen ever so friendly as was her husband.
Set in a lovely spot, a level 15 minutes walk from the town.
Recommended unreservedly.

Great place in a great place!
Thank you.

Kathleen, you and Dennis made us feel like family; the four nights we stayed were absolutely lovely! Our room was comfy, cozy, light and cheery and the rest of the house was wonderful.
We thoroughly enjoyed our full Irish Breakfast--the sausage was quite a hit although most at home could hardly believe we ate it! Thank you for making our first days and nights in Ireland unforgetable!

Thank you to Kathleen for making us so welcome. We had a lovely family room with a great view. The accommodation and bathroom were spotless and the beds most comfortable. We enjoyed the large Irish breakfast and the pretty garden. We will be back!!!

Our family room was spacious, clean and comfortable. Not quite as close to the centre of town as we thought, but still within walking distance and we had a great meal at Brogan's which had been recommended.

Room Tip: Plenty of room for 3, in fact the most spacious we've had (for 2 sisters and our Mum).

Arrived in Ennis late, all hotels (2 of them) full on a Tuesday night, might be a business opportunity for someone with a plot of land. Had to search around for a B&B, Huge advantage is parking at this B&B, its down a lane way off road, feels very safe and secluded. All the others I looked at were on-street or just (barely) off-street paring. The owners couldn't do enough for me. The landlady was excellent, she insisted (and I mean insisted) that I turn the heating on the room, even though I didn't really want it. She is the classic Irish B&B land-lady, wants to know all about you, where your from, who you are, Irish connections, etc, etc. . There was a problem with the remote control for the TV (the previous guest had taken It) the lady of the house couldn't do enough to sort it out, I had to work for the evening on my laptop, there was a knock at the door 10 minutes later by the lady of the house with the authentication key for the wi-fi in the B&B, this proved to be a god-send as the mobile carrier USB modem I have barely had GPRS coverage.;
Great spot if you are in Ennis. I paid €35.00 for B&B. Great value.
I'm not sure if I will be back in Ennis for business again, but if I am I look forward to staying here again.

Room Tip: Right side of the house. And make sure you have a room that you can turn the heating off in.

This was the first place we stayed upon our arrival in Ireland for our honeymoon. Kathleen was warm and welcoming. We had a comfortable room and a great night's sleep! Breakfast was great, too. A nice traditional Irish Breakfast. Close enough to downtown Ennis that it's walkable. It also had the best shower of our trip!

Kathleen is a warm person and her B&B was really nice.
The bed was unfortunately really bad. We were glad we didn't have to spend more than one night in this bed.
Breakfast was good but it wasn't all that clear what we could have for breakfast.
