Reviewed 1 July 2014

Spent a night here on our recent trip to Ireland. Welcomed by Jim and "Daisy", the most chilled out & friendly dog I've met. Our room was a large one, nice and clean, with a double bed and 2 singles, perfect for a family although it was only me and the missus.
The house is a short walk to the town centre, and looks out over a field and Hore Abbey. It has ample parking onsite too. The house has a large sun room reserved for guests, as well as a covered varanda where we enjoyed a glass of red wine and watched the sun go down over the ruins. Very nice indeed and we'll come again! Thanks Jim and Peggy!

We stayed here one night June 19th - had two rooms. A warm, cheerful welcome from Jim and 'Daisy'. We got lots of help with directions and advise on places to eat etc. Rooms were clean, beds comfy, and breakfast made fresh. We enjoyed our stay and Jims humor; would certainly stay here again.

Peggy O'Neill's was one of our favorite B & Bs during our 2 week trip to Ireland. Jim was very friendly and welcoming! He definitely had that old Irish charm. Our view had a wonderful view of Hoare Abbey and the Rock of Cashel is within walking distance. In fact, our car never left their drive during the 2 days we were in Cashel. The town and all of the restaurants and shops were only a few blocks away. The B & B also had a nice lounge and patio area outside for relaxing. We even enjoyed the O'Neills' friendly, well behaved boxer named Daisy. However, be aware that this B & B only accepts cash as is the case with most B & Bs where we stayed on our trip to Ireland.

Peggy & Jim made us very welcome for our one night stay. The B&B is within walking distance of Cashel, is clean and comfy, with super large bath towels (sadly lacking in most B&B's). The view of the old Abbey is fantastic. Highly recommended.

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.

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
