Peggy O'Neills B&B
Ranked #2 of 16 Cashel B&B and Inns
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 26 October 2013

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.

Peggy O'Neills was a great find in Cashel thanks to TA, it is situated a easy few minutes walk to town, shops,pubs, restaurants and a 10 minute walk to the Rock of Cashel.
The B&B is in a quiet street, with ample parking at the front of the house and has free wifi.
Jim was very jovial and friendly on arrival and gave us helpful advice on how to get to the rock and on pubs and restaurants.
Our room was on the ground floor at the back of the house and was clean, bright and airy with lovely views of the abbey. The double bed was comfortable.
The bathroom was small but very clean and the shower had good water pressure.
The fully cooked Irish breakfast was tasty.
Their is also a very nice sitting area at the back of the house with lovely views of the abbey.
Peggy o'Neills is a great place to stay when in Cashel.

Room Tip: Ask for a room at the back of the house with views of the abbey.

Peggy and her husband are warm, considerate hosts. We were greeted with an offer of a cup of tea and because we were going to be their only guests for the evening, an opportunity to choose our room. Some of the rooms have an striking view of Hore Abbey. The accommodations were comfortable and sparkling clean. The shower head in the bathroom was amazing, and the mattress was comfortable. Breakfast consisted of various cereals, fruits, yogurts, cheeses, breads and several cooked breakfast options. My husband and I were treated as if we were Lord and Lady Grantham being tended to by Carson!

I have never enjoyed a stay in a hotel or B&B as much as I did at Peggy's. From the first moment, Jim has been really kind and caring, Peggy is charmin and Daisy is the cutest dog, I´ve ever seen. The rooms are nice, beds are comfortable and you have a great view from the room. The breakgsat was delicious. We enjoyed our stay very much and we definitely want to visit the 3 of them again.

I shouldn't say it was totally unexpected after reading the other TripAdvisor reviews, but Peggy's was an amazing stay from start to finish. Cashel itself is a really cute town and Peggy's is walking distance from it all. Hore Abbey is in their backyard, Rock of Cashel is just up the hill, and the Bru Boru heritage center and evening show is not to be missed. Clean, curteous, funny, helpful, accommodating, friendly, well-located, and (for breakfast) delicious. And Daisy is one of the sweetest dogs we have ever met. Peggy's makes you wonder why you ever stayed in a hotel while in Ireland.

We were warmly greeted upon arrival. Beautiful facility and great hospitality. Easy walking distance to town center. We were surprised to have a view of an old abbey from the backyard, as well as a view of Rock of Cashel.

We never got to meet Peggy as she was dealing with a pulled tooth, poor thing,but her husband Jim more than made up for it. He is open, gregarious, funny and charming. He's not a bad breakfast maker either!! Their home is charming, the most famous dog in Ireland, Daisy the boxer, is as fun as her master. The cookies and biscuits Jim served us with our tea were delicious. Never did find those raisin ones. The back patio overlooks the Abbey at the Rock of Cashel and is a sight you'll never get tired of. Jim sat and chatted with us and we exchanged stories and laughs. We only spent one night there and truly wish we could have stayed longer. His dinner recommendation for Baileys was spot on. My fish special was delicious and perfectly presented. Thanks Jim and Peggy for a delightful stay.

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
