We stayed for one night at this excellent B&B during our Irish Tour and it was one of the most comfortable stays we experienced. Aideen was so accommodating and the surroundings were beautiful. Rooms were spacious with wifi and breakfast was first class. Loved the fresh orange juice. Thank you Aideen.

I must say I loved this B & B . The friendly patrons Martin and Aideen were a credit to the lovely atmosphere created.. The accommodation was first class and the breakfast was splendid .... You could avail of a cooked meal if you wished.. I indulged and the food was superb.. Aideens deserts have to be eaten to be believed. This is a farm setting B&B and you can walk the lands which bring you down to the lake shores.. The views are breath taken.. I will return again in the summer and stay a little longer than two days as the fishing is good ........
A real gem of a B&B......

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at this B&B. We had a large room with a canopy bed, a sitting area and some nice antiques. The main sitting room was great as well with views over the farm and down to the river. We took a short walk around the grounds and met Sonny and Cher their 2 "pet" donkeys - we should have brought some treats along! Breakfast was really good with freshly squeezed orange juice and fantastic breads. All in all a very good spot. Would return and recommend to friends.

We stayed here in August 2013. We had a lovely room with antique furniture. The sitting room for guests is very comfortable, with a wide view of the farmland and the lake in the distance. Lots of interesting reading materials were provided. The hosts were helpful in every way possible. We enjoyed feeding the donkeys, Sonny and Cher. I took a morning walk out to the lake (Lough Owel), climbing over the best stiles I have ever seen, and photographing the cows, the lake, the sheep, the vegetation, and landscape with the RR tracks running through. We would definitely stay here again.

We came accross this lovely B&B a few years back and are glad to report nothing has changed.
A short drive from Mullingar (5 mins.) You arrive up the drive underneath a canopy of beech and birch trees to be warmly greeted by the owner Aideen who immediately tells us to make ourselves at home while she put the kettle on for tea.
We chose our room, called Lough Owel (all the rooms are named after local Loughs) it was warm and furnished with antiques including a big fine bed. We chose this room as it had a lovely view accross the meadow to Lough Owel. The ensuite was clean and tidy with soft towels and a hot Power-shower to help unwind after a hard days walking.
What really sets this place apart is the wonderful breakfast cooked by Aideen and served in the
antique and book filled lounge.
A full Irish is our recommendation with sausage,bacon,eggs,mushrooms, black and white puddings all accompanied by home made bread and preserves, forget the diet enjoy !!
Also did we mention Sony and Cher ? Two sweet little donkeys who like to be made a fuss of.
We had a lovely stay here and will be back again, next time with my fishing rods !
