We had a lovely experience at Peggy O’Neil’s B&B in Cashel. We stayed there on the night before father’s day after another local lodge had overbooked their rooms for the night. Luckily, this B&B had a cancellation or one opening that evening that would accommodate the three of us quite comfortably. This couple greeted us warmly, making us feel so welcome when we were weary and displaced. At first we were a little disappointed that we wouldn’t have the view that the lodge held, but quickly realized that our new accommodation was even better. From the back porch, I could see the ruins of the Hoare Abbey beside a field of cows. It was breathtaking. As if it could not get any better, the rooms were tastefully decorated and comfortable. How was breakfast? It was absolutely perfect!!!!!
- 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
