This was our first overnight stay in Ireland and it couldn't have been more wonderful. I told Jim that I wouldn't give Daisy top billing....so I'll just refer to Jim and Peggy as Daisy's support staff. Seriously, they all made us feel welcome and were extremely helpful. We even modified our itinerary based on a subtle recommendation from Jim and couldn't have been more thrilled. There were 5 adults travelling and this change, gave us one of the highlights of the trip, and a favorite for one of our members! I can't thank you enough, Jim! Our rooms were very comfortable, both with views of Hore Abbey, good shower pressure and temperature. (I thought I'd have 2 weeks of lukewarm showers while in Ireland), and excellent breakfasts. How do you make perfect eggs everytime?! It was an easy walk to the center of town and to the Rock and Abbey, even in the dark since we wanted to see the Rock of Cashel light up at night. If Jim makes a suggestion, take it. He won't steer you wrong. We stayed for 2 nights and hated to leave, not just because Daisy eased the angst from missing our dog at home, but because it felt like we were leaving friends after an all too short visit.
- 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
