“A great B&B in a beautiful rural setting”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 26 October 2013

My friend and I stayed here on a Friday night in October 2013. It is in a lovely quiet rural location, next to the Meeting of the Waters at Avoca. The B&B is directly above a pub, which did very nice bar food and was an ideal spot for our evening meal. The twin room was very comfortable and clean and the staff were all very friendly and helpful. The cooked Irish breakfast was delicious and the breakfast room has amazing views out over the waters which really are idyllic. We would not hesitate to stay there again or to recommend the place to friends and family. Excellent value for money.

Room Tip: All of the rooms are located above the pub, so if you are a light sleeper you might want to take ear...

We enjoyed a very relaxing weekend at the Meetings, our hosts were very attentive, the rooms were excellent, breakfast was fab, there was traditional music in the pub which created a very warm atmosphere.

Stayed overnight on Sunday 15th September 2013. From the staff, to the beds, to the ensuite, the food, the bar & the scenery...what a wonderful place to begin our B&B experience in Ireland. The location is perfect for a first stop on a drive from Dublin, easy to find, plenty of parking and easy access to rooms. After a wander down to the rivers where we got some beautiful photos, we freshened up and thoroughly enjoyed the music downstairs in the lounge. The breakfast was really nice and the view from the breakfast room is a great way to start the day and from which to continue our driving journey.

The inn at The Meetings of the water was fantastic. Set in the beautiful mountains in Ireland, right by the scenic waters, this inn attached to a bar/ restaurant had spacious rooms and bathrooms and a complementary tea and biscuit set up which we wound down our days with. We got breakfast cooked to order in the mornings served by a few friendly and accommodating ladies. A little ways in and out of town but 100% worth it.

This B&B is situated near the town of Avoca. Has a nice pub, with reasonble food. The view of where the rivers join is amazing. Unfortunately when i was there the river was very dry. There is music outdoors in the evening and it is fun. The rooms are very basic and being on top of the pub it is rather noisy if you feel like a nap during the day. The music is loud but it stops at a resonable time at night.

Our room was nice and comfortable with a good bathroom (including decent sized towels). The music from the pub was loud but it finished at a reasonable hour and we then had a quiet night. The location itself is very attractive and you could get right down to the water. The breakfast was good and they went out of their way to ensure people got what the wanted. They even offered me something to take back to my room for my daughter.
