My husband and I stayed here for one night in September 2013. There is plenty of parking in the front of the building. When we arrived, we were greeted by Peggy and Jim. They were great hosts and we got to meet their dog, who was super friendly! They showed us around the B&B and to our room, which was on the first floor in the back with a view of the abbey. It was very surreal to be able to look out our window and see the abbey, it was great! Jim let us know before leaving us that we should walk to the Rock of Cashel in the morning, when we had planned to visit it. He said that we could even leave our car at the B&B the next day after we checked out so that we didn't have to pay for parking at the Rock. Our room was small but very new and clean. The bathroom was the same - small, but new and clean. The dining room where breakfast was served was very nice and they had a great spread of food and drink. I think it was my favorite in all the B&Bs that we stayed at in Ireland. They had plenty of juices - even apple juice, which no other B&B had. They had cereals, fruits, breads, and cheeses too. We had some of all of this in addition to our hot Irish breakfast. Very delicious.
Overall, this is a really great spot if you are in the area and trying to see the Rock of Cashel. I would definitely stay here again.
- 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
