“Delightful and Relaxing”
Reviewed 28 October 2012

What a gorgeous location. Mary and Vincent took excellent care of us and went beyond expectations. We were too tired to go into town for dinner so they fed us as if we were family. This is the perfect respite. The rooms were extremely clean and comfortable and we were made to feel welcome and safe.

We spend much of our time walking around the grounds and admiring the views. We also loved sitting in the conservatory drinking tea and eating excellent biscuits and chatting with Mary. Just lovely.

Incredible place. Set in the heart of Irish countryside, this little gem of a B&B is perfect. Nice comfy rooms, clean and practical attached bathrooms.
The welcoming feeling was a real pleasure. Chatted with the owner at our arrival, he was back from taking care of the cows!
Lovely breakfast in the morning, eggs straight from the farm.
This is exactly what you expect from an Irish B&B in your most fairytale-like dreams
An absolute must.

Mary & Vincent were excellent hosts and Mary greeted us with warm scones & tea. We really enjoyed their Dairy farm and the musical talents od their son Joseph. He treateed us to some song and dance and he played the tin whistle for us. We were lucky because he was home feom school on a holiday. We accidently left some medications and Mary called ahead to National Stud Farm and notified them so we could return and get our meds. Mary and Vincent are very knowledge about the are and were very helpful with directions. The Breakfast was wonderful and the rooms were very nice including toiletress and bottled water. The gormans made us feel as if we were part of their family.

Most of you won't be as lucky but we were treated to a concert with our breakfast when Mary and Vincent shared a CD of their 13 year old son, Joseph. Joseph has the voice of an angel and we were fortunate to be able to hear him in person the next day when he was home on a bank holiday. Mary and Vincent Gorman made us all feel as if we were old friends.Their delightful home is so clean and graciously appointed, one might want to stay with them for the entire vacation. The dining room has fresh flowers on the table, napkins folded like lotus flowers and a delicious breakfast is served, with fresh fruit and scrumptious scones. Our favorite was smoked salmon and scrambled eggs. Ballindrum Farm is charming from the tree over-arched lane to to the calves gambling in the field outside your window. Mary even called to say we had left things behind. We were happy we had an excuse to go back to Ballindrum Farm even though Mary had offered bring our belongings to us. We sincerely hope we have to opportunity to visit again!

We stayed at Beech Lodge from 2nd - 9th June - this is our 3rd visit in less than 12 months and gives us a total of 6 weeks holidays in the Lodge. We use the lodge because it is convenient for our needs, rather than a one off holiday destination. It is always beautifully clean, tidy and welcoming. Mary and Vincent have always gone out of their way to provide the small extras (like a Christmas tree - @ Christmas) and have always been accommodating when an earlier check-in etc is needed. Ballindrum is a very picturesque and convenient location - only a 5 min drive from town (Athy) and 60 mins from Dublin and only about 90 mins to the coast. It is an ideal base for touring the east and south east of Ireland. Our boys love it - calling it their' country home'!

Although we stayed only one night we would like to highly recommend Ballindrum Farm. Mary greeted us with with pot of tea and home made scones and she and her husband were very friendly and welcoming. Our room was big,clean and comfy and has everything that we needed: toiletress in the bathroom, wi-fi, tv, bottled water,comfy bed and nice view on green fields with calves and hens . Breakfast was plenty and delicious (including fresh fruit salad, freshly squeezed orange juice and yummy scrambled egg with salmon). Great stay and real Irish hospitality!

This was the first B&B we stayed at on our Ireland vacation, and it was the best. We were able to check in early, and had fresh scones and all the fixings upon arrival. Joseph, their son, entertained us with Irish folk tunes on his "whistle." Vincent provided us with a history of the farm and provided us with a tour. The bedrooms were decorated nicely, generous in size, and the beds were comfortable. The hospitality provided to us was outstanding and was worth the drive to the country. Highly recommended.
