Peggy greeted us warmly and sat with us while we enjoyed tea in the sunroom. Daisy is such a well behaved dog and we were not the only guests who would like to have taken her home with us! Jim is also very personable and provides a great start to the morning serving as a jovial breakfast host while Peggy cooks up a made to order breakfast in the kitchen.

My husband and I stayed here as we were passing through heading to Cork Ireland. The owners are extremely friendly and you feel like your part of the family. The rooms are very spacious and comfortable. Would definitely recommend to everyone and come back again when back in Ireland.

We stayed at Peggy O'Neills B and B on 8/25/13 for one night. Jim O'Neill (Peggy was away) made us feel welcome the minute we walked into the B and B. 3 of us were travelling so we had the triple room which was very clean and comfortable. The beds were very good. The Irish breakfast that was prepared by Jim was just the thing needed for a great day of sight seeing. Jim provided us with a recommendation for at a local restaurant which turned out to be one of the best meals on our trip. The view out to the Abbey in the back yard is spectacular. I would highly recommend this traditional Irish B and B.

Room Tip: make sure you ask about the local restaurant that Jim recommended to us.

Within 5 minutes of checking in, Jim was teaching me the basics of Hurling as the national championship was being played to a draw (Clare v Cork: 24/24). Breakfasts are a delight (whatever you want, prettymuch), Peggy is charming, Jim (retired nine years from the Irish Police force) is a real character as the other reviews here will confirm. Top notch stay, excellent facility. It is #1 on TA for a reason.

Room Tip: drop a note to Peggy

A great place to stay,
with definitely the most welcoming owner I have ever met, and same with his dog.
The only reason I didn't give 5 stars (I wish I could give 4.5) is the rooms are quite simple,
although fair for the price.
Place is clean, 5 minutes walk from center. Great place.

We had a very enjoyable stay at PeggyOneill when we visited Cashel two days in May.
Jim,Peggy(and their sweet tempered dog Daisy) are excellent hosts; very kind and helpful. Peggy was lovely, and made us feel very welcome.
Clean rooms, nice beds and bathroom and good breakfast. Our room had a great view to Hore Abbey, a medieval abbey close by. I can recommend a peaceful walk to the abbey(only a short walking distance from the B&B)
We experienced it a moonlit evening which was very memorable. I can highly recommend a visit to Cashel if you like history/archaeological sites (with the spectacular
ancient fortress Rock of Cashel laying on a hill top with great view of Tipperary`s green landscape), and a stay at PeggyOneill!

Peggy O'Neill's B&B is a lovely place. The rooms are spacious, comfortable and tidy. The shower was the best I've seen in Ireland (And I've seen a few). The bed was comfortable (I prefer duvets to the traditional blanket-and-sheets thing, though) and the breakfast was lovely and cooked to perfection. The place is informal and friendly. There is a sitting room for guests and you can sit there or outside in the garden, overlooking a magnificent ruined abbey, drinking tea and relaxing. But waht really makes the difference is the people that run the B&B. Peggy and Jim are lovely people. We felt more like friends than like paying guests. We were greeted by Jim and he was always good for a chat and a laugh. We are planning to return and looking forward to it.

Official Description (provided by the hotel):
Peggy O'Neill's is a charming family run bed and breakfast located on the Golden road, three minutes walk from the centre of Cashel. Peggy has been welcoming guests into her home for over a decade and she provides homely yet very comfortable accommodation and huge hearty breakfasts at a very reasonable price. Peggy's is a 3 minute walk from the centre of Cashel Town and a 10 minute walk from the Rock of Cashel.Peggy O'Neill's unique selling point is the wonderful view of Hore abbey from the back of the property. Hore Abbey (also Hoare Abbey, sometimes known as St.Mary's) is a ruined Cistercian monastery near the Rock of Cashel, County Tipperary, Republic of Ireland.'Hore' is thought to derive from 'iubhair' – yew tree. The former Benedictine abbey at Hore was given to the Cistercians by Archbishop David MacCearbhaill (in 1270), who later entered the monastery. He endowed the Abbey generously with land, mills and other benefices previously belonging to the town. The story, beloved of tour-guides, that he evicted the Benedictines after a dream that they were about to kill him, is unlikely to be true and probably arises from the Archbishop's 'interference' with the commerce of the city of Cashel. His disfavour of the established orders in Cashel certainly caused local resentment. He was resented by some of the towns-people, being considered too much in favour of the Irish by the more Anglicised. This is evident in the objection by the thirty-eight local brewers to the levy of two flagons out of every brewing and in the murder of two monks who were visiting the town. ... more   less
