We stayed at Peggy O'Neills for one night and the location near the center of Cashel is a big plus. You can easily walk into town if you want to get some exercise. The house is clean and comfortable enough, although it did feel a bit cramped. Also, if you are not a fan of big dogs, be aware that Peggy does have a large, friendly dog, who found its way to our room a couple of times.
The room we had was on the second floor and we were disappointed to find out that WIFI did not work in that room for some reason. We either had to go out in the hall or go downstairs. Peggy's husband had to explain how the TV worked and further explained why there are so few channels available (it costs too much). He seemed a bit defensive.
The breakfast was adequate but not up to the quality of other B&Bs we stayed in in Ireland. The cereal was a little stale and the scrambled eggs were very watery. If you like decaf coffee, don't expect to get it here. Peggy's husband explained that not enough people ask for it to justify having it on hand. Overall, I felt that this was an average B&B experience.
- 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
