Elmdale Farmhouse
Ranked #12 of 34 Ennis B&B and Inns
Reviewed 3 April 2007

this is by far one of the cosiest irish inns i have stayed in. The hostess Anne was most accomodating.i have family in ireland so i venture over about twice a year i have stayed in alot of different hotels and guest houses but Elmdale provided me with the irish hospitality i enjoy. Anne gave us dinner on both evenings the traditional cabbage and bacon was delicious not to mention anne's home made vegetable soup and irish soda bread. The room was very spacious with lovely views of the irish farmland. The lounge area was very comfortable with all mod cons such as dvd player so we could have a bottle of wine in there at night time and not have to go out. Tom who is also the host brought us on a walk of his farm which was very enjoyable we even got to see a donkey 'Bella'. Anne's daughter arlene is a harpist and irish dancer we were lucky enough to have her play the irish harp for us on two occasions which was fantastic. the house in nicely located in the countryside but very near the town of ennis. I will definately be returning to elmdale on my next trip. I feel like part of the family now!

The Elmdale B&B was our first night in Ireland. We were looking forward to the wonderful Irish Hospitality we had heard so much about from other travellers. We chose the Elmdale based on it's location and there was a resident Irish Harpist in the family.
We had contacted the hostess and agreed on an early check in (8am) as we wanted to freshen up and drop off our luggage before heading out to do some sightseeing. On our arrival we found noone awake at the house and noone answered our repeated knocking on the door or the door bell which we continued for about 30mins. When we returned later in the afternoon to the house, it seemed as we were more of an inconvenience. We were shown our room and that was it - no tour of the house - no friendly welcome. The bathroom was terrible, the toilet didn't flush well, the shower had either hot or cold water - there was no middle temperature and it was just more than a trickle. The heating wasn't that good - windows were very drafty. We were asked what time we would like breakfast, we said around 7:30am would be great as we had a lot of driving to do and wanted to get going early. The hostess proceeded to tell us that she didn't cook breakfast until 8:30am and that she would leave some fruit on a table in the dining room. We managed to stumble around in the dark to locate the fruit that was left for us before we left.
It certainly was not the Irish Welcom we had been looking forward to!!
