“Beautiful Countryside Meets Ancient Ruins in the Backyard”
Reviewed 25 June 2014

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!!!!!

Peggy O'Neills was our first stop after three days in Dublin. The O'Neills were immediately welcoming and friendly. After Dublin, it was nice to relax in a small town. Jim gave us a good recommendation for dinner just up the street. The B&B had a great view of the Abbey ruins from its guest patio as well as from our room. It was possible to take a short walk to the Abbey through grazing cows, which we very much enjoyed. The view of the Rock of Cashel is excellent from that location. At breakfast the next morning Jim made everyone seem so at home that we soon were all chatting. We even ran into another couple from the B&B later that day at the Jameson Distillery. All round friendly and relaxing, a great beginning to our journey around rural Ireland.

The B&B was excellent, clean, attractive and in a good location. The problem was that there was no warning about cash only for payment. On check out the owner insisted cash even thought it was a weekend of the bank holiday. We took the max on our ATM leaving us with no money until Tuesday. The worse was that he would charge us 20 euros if we used our credit card. Not nice and beware. other problem he had a big loud month. Bellowing all over the house. Never again for us.

We loved our stay in Cashel. Jim, the friendly owner, met us at the bus stop to give us a ride to the B&B which was only a short walk from the town center. The room we stayed in was great, and there is a nice patio outside overlooking Hore Abbey where we sat and had an afternoon tea. Cashel was a cute little town with friendly people. We felt safe and comfortable the entire time we were there. If you are passing through Cashel, take the time to stop here and stay with Peggy and Jim (and Daisy the dog who we adored).

We stayed here in June 2014. This B&B is very clean and in a perfect location for walking to downtown Cashel, Hore Abbey, and The Rock of Cashel. There is a beautiful view of Hore Abbey from their back yard. There is off-street parking directly in front of the B&B. The host and hostess offered us tea and a snack when we arrived, and were very helpful with suggestions for dinner and for visiting Hore Abbey and The Rock. Breakfast was delicious: fresh fruit, cereal, the full Irish breakfast, and everything in between. We highly recommend this B&B and would definitely stay here again.

Peggy O'Neills was the first of several B&Bs we stayed at on our 2 week trip in June 2014. They all turned out to be wonderful, but Peggy's was special. It's got a great location, within walking distance of Cashel, a beautiful view of Hore Abbey from the rear of the property, comfortable rooms with great showers and, of course, excellent Irish Breakfasts. Best of all are your hosts, Jim and Peggy and, last but not least Daisy, the friendliest dog in Ireland, who wins over every visitor. We'll be sure to stay again.

Knocked on the bright red door looking for a place to spend the night. Jim opened the door and instantly made us at home. Best place to park? "Next door is best for me," Jim answered. We had the large room upstairs- sleeps 4 (2 twins plus a full/queen). The back window looks out over Hore Abbey. Just amazing. Breakfast was delicious, tea fabulous. I highly recommend the O'Neills' B&B to all. And Daisy was just wonderful, too.

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
