“Great locaiton, super pub and lovely locals!!”
Reviewed 15 December 2009

Stayed in Ballycommon House in March 2009. Booked all four apts for a group hen party. The apts were lovely - nicely laid out with lots of dishes, glasses, etc. Plenty of room for a big group. Mary and Gerry, the proprietors of the pub and house are absolutely lovely and couldnt be more helpful. We cooked in the first night and then descended on the local pub. It was great craic - good music, good beer and lovely locals who were happy to entertain 25 women looking for a dance! The day was spent relaxing with walks by the canal. On the second night we headed into Tullamore - which is very nearby but actually came backto the pub again cos we had enjoyed ourselves so much the first night. Would definately recommend this location for any type of getaway with friends or family. Very reasonable, spotlessly clean & great fun! C

We were weary after our journey from Devon, England. When we were shown to our apartment, it was extremely comforting to know that we didn't have to go out again and buy the necessities eg; milk, bread etc. Gerry and Maria are the most generous hosts, they can't do enough to make sure your stay is a memorable one, the local people are very welcoming, and all of us enjoyed the craic in the bar.
The situation of the Apartments enables you to be close on hand for fishing, boating, cycling and walking, the nearest town being Tullamore is great for shopping, swimming, and a visit to the Heritage Centre is a must, we will be visiting again in the near future.

Ballycommon House really is in the middle of nowhere but still only 20 minutes away from Tullamore if you fancy a night out and 20 seconds walk away from the pub as it is on the same land as it! Would really recommend it for any kind of a get together, whether it be a family outing or a gang of friends getting together. The couple who owned it were absolutely lovely and couldn't have been more helpful.

Reviewed 20 April 2008

Ballycommon House is about 6 miles outside of Tullamore, pretty much in the middle of nowehere. We were there for a get together with friends, and it really was an excellent find.

The owners of the pub have built 4 self catering apartments beside the pub. The apartments, are lovely and very well equipped. They do advertise them as sleeping 4 / 6, but I would really only recommend having 4 people, as the extra 2 are on a sofa bed in the sitting room, and is not ideal. Also most of the rooms are twin rooms.

The pub and cottages are right on the canal and there is a lock just down the canal ~ so it really is a pretty place. The owners are lovely people, and really helpful.
