“A Must for any Quiet Man Fan”
Reviewed 5 July 2014

A lovely B&B. Décor based round the Quiet Man film, lots of pictures and plaques with memorable lines from the film, all over the building. As stated when we arrived no one available and we had to go over the road, this caused no problem to us, We had a wonderful stay in a comfortable room, with a plentiful breakfast. Fantastic B&B. Regarding some reviews on here, if you want 5* service you must be prepared to pay 5* price. This B&B is excellent value for money.

Jerry and Margaret are wonderful hosts, and make you feel right at home. If you have any interest in the Quiet Man movie, this is definitely the place to stay. All of the rooms are named after characters in the film, and there are many pictures from the movie and of John Wayne and Maureen O'Hara throughout the house. Our room was bright and cheerful and the breakfast was excellent. Your hosts are acknowledged experts on The Quiet Man, and will happily share suggestions with guests. I wouldn't stay anyplace else in Cong.

This is the perfect place to stay for a visit to the home of The Quiet Man. Gerry and Margaret deserve the credit for Cong being recognised as the location for this great film. Their guesthouse is an essential part of the visit experience. The rooms are spacious and comfortable and the breakfast is the best we have had this trip.

This is a Quiet man's Themed B&B - The Rooms are pristine, good size, and the house itself is beautiful.
My Wife and I were made very Welcome by Gerry & Margaret the owners. Gerry (the Local tour guide/historian took us on a whistle stop tour of Cong -Awesome history .

The Film really comes to life with the tour and the must see Museum in the village

We could only stay one night but its not long enough to enjoy this magical place .
I would not stay anywhere else in Cong - we were delighted with our Hospitality

We had been driving all day and didn't have a place to stay. We called at the last minute; a happy accident. Thank you Gerry & Margaret! Even though we called at the last minute, our rooms were ready -- clean and warm. Plenty of room for the three of us, including my 6'4" son. With the locks on the doors, one of the most secure B&Bs we stayed in. If we had planned our trip better, we would have stayed longer in Cong -- Gerry knows all the places to go and the best way to get there! Breakfast was great -- the best bacon on the trip. We would highly recommend this B&B to anyone traveling in the area.

Been coming here for the last 10 years; it's quiet, beautiful and relaxing. It holds special memories for us and we'll be coming here in the future: hopefully bringing our own children down here in the years to come! Margaret and Gerry are fabulous people, probably 2 of the nicest people we've ever met. Thank you for helping to create the special memories! X

Room Tip: Margaret and Gerry are fantastic hosts and nothing is too much trouble!
