“To our friends in Ireland, from Leslie, Vicki and Fran”
Reviewed 12 July 2013

Without a doubt, our favourite B&B in Ireland was Ballingowan House. Carmel and Charlie were the most wonderful hosts and simply the kindest people one could hope to meet. The elegant, spotlessly clean surroundings were a real treat, we took full advantage of the deck which overlooked a fabulous garden - I've never seen such beautiful roses! Breakfast was delicious, accompanied by delightful conversations with Carmel and Charlie, our friends in Ireland.

The owner was very kind, attentive and hospitable. She gave us the names of some restaurants in the area to try for dinner and the one we picked was excellent. The breakfast was very good and she was flexible with the time that we asked for. The rooms were clean and comfortable.

Our one night stay for our group of 9 was great. The rooms were clean and the owner could not have been more helpful. We had a nice night's rest and were treated to a delicious breakfast in the morning. Don't miss this place if you are looking for a place to stay!

Very helpful with any needs. The full Irish breakfast was very yummy and perfect for the start of a day. The beds were warm and inviting. Wonderful first night in Ireland. Carmel offered us the choice of rooms too!

I was in a group of 9 people and we all loved this place! The owners were great and extremely nice and helpful. Breakfast was delicious and there was plenty of food. They also recommended a place for dinner and we all liked it. A great start to our vacation, and I would definitely stay here again.

My husband and I took a trip to Ireland in mid-april of 2013. We had the immense pleasure of staying at the Ballingowan House with Ms. Carmel being the host. She was ever so helpful. The breakfast was amazing, and she really made us feel welcome by going out of her way for everything. I enjoyed taking photos of her house. It is beautiful! We loved our stay. :)

We stayed at Ballingowan House for five days in April, 2013, while visiting our long-lost cousins recently proven by DNA testing. My great grandfather emigrated to America from Castlemahon about 1850.

Our hosts, Carmel and Charlie O'Brian, were outstanding! Carmel, a nurse by profession, made sure the room was spotless. She served an Irish breakfast every morning and was a wealth of information about the area, its history and the people. Located on the edge of town, she offered to transport us to the town square as needed, but we always were provided transportation by our wonderful, new-found relatives.

We plan to return to Newcastle West and Ballingowan House to spend more time with our cousins and continue researching our family history. We highly recommend Ballingowan House B&B to anyone visiting the area.
