“Like staying with friends that cook well!”
Reviewed 22 May 2014

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.

Jim was a great host - very friendly and welcoming, giving us a great introduction to the B&B when we arrived. The property is within walking distance to Cashel town and the Rock of Cashel with a view of Hore Abbey from our room! We also enjoyed the restaurant Jim recommended and appreciated the directions to free parking to see the Rock of Cashel. We appreciated the beautiful room with 3 comfortable beds and the tasty breakfast.

We had a wonderful stay at Peggy O'Neils on our first night in Ireland! We were greeted warmly by Jim and Daisy. Our room was perfect for our needs! Jim gave us directions to the Rock of Cashel which is a quick walk from the house. You can view the Abbey ruins from the B&B! The restaurant Jim recommended was as great spot for dinner and a pint (or two...). The full Irish breakfast in the morning was the ideal way to start our journey the next morning. Jim was very helpful in planning our next day of travel.
I would definitely stay at Peggy's again. The location was perfect and the hospitality second to none. It set the bar very high for the rest of our Ireland vacation!

Lovely b&b in a great location. Peggy, Jim and Daisy we're all great hosts and made allowances for our jet-lagged early arrival. As advertised we were able to park the car and walk to everything we wanted to see. A great start to a lovely week.

Room Tip: All rooms are great; some have views of the Abbey

We did promise the owners husband we would write a review ASAP, but we are "slackers" sorry. I still reminisce about our time there and wish I was better at writing sooner. We stayed at Peggy O'Neills last July 2013. Fantastic!!!!! I had heard previous comments of cold showers... not the case. Our room, hospitality, and breakfast was one of the best in our week of driving in Southern Ireland. You can see Rock of Cashel from the back yard. Getting to town is a 3min walk with nice choices of restaurants and bars. The owners make you feel very comfortable and we would happily stay there again. Cheers Peggy O'Neills!!!!!!!!!

This was a lovely B&B a short walk to the center of Cashel. The host was very warm and he made a great breakfast. Very clean, tidy B&B. I would definitely stay at Peggy O'Neill's again.

P.S the sweet boxer made me smile!

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
