The Ballyglass B&B is a nice, quaint hotel near the town of Tipperary. It is located a bit away from the town center so it is the ideal place if you want peace and quiet and a wonderful time surrounded by the sounds of nature. Simply fantastic. The owners are very welcoming and accommodating. We arrived before the check in time and because we were so tired and jet lagged we thought we might give it a try and see if they could check us in earlier. To our surprise they did and it was the best because we could rest and then enjoy our stay. The house is a historic place so the room we stayed was a bit small and so was the shower ( they could upgrade the toilet paper,though). However, everything was clean and well organized, the bed was good and the whole room was neat, though small. The breakfast was excellent and made to order. The lady cooked it herself for us. You could choose a few options that included eggs and bacon, or fried fish, fried tomatoes and a full Irish breakfast for those very hungry.There was also plenty of fruit salad, yogurt, cereals, white and brown toast, jam and butter, coffee and tea and orange juice. They offer free wifi and at the beginning the wifi would work in our room but then they got us a small router and the connection then worked. One of the nights we stayed there they had an Irish night with the locals coming for a bit of music and dancing for a fundraising. There is also a pub on the premises. On a side note, for golfers there is a golf course nearby the B&B and for those who like to hike there is also a trail at about 5 minutes from the place. We indeed had a good time there and would recommend it for friends and family and would definitively stay there again.
