“Wonderful stay for 'Quiet Man' fans”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 13 July 2014

A great place to finish up after I had completed a walking tour of sites used in the filming of 'The Quiet Man' in the nearby village of Cong. Not only is the B & B dedicated to the film, with photos and memorable lines from the film adorning every wall, you can watch the movie in your room! I had a choice of room, which are all named after characters from the movie. My room was very comfortable and quiet and the breakfast in the stylish parlour the next morning, was lovely. I had been told when I booked that I needed to pick up the keys from the hostel opposite, which was helpful.

I stayed here last night with my partner and my parents. When we arrived there was nobody there and after some confusion and waiting for some time a girl came to the house to check us in. The girl wasn't rude to be fair but we didn't receive a warm welcome either. We were given our keys and a map and then left to our own devices with no body around to ask anything. ( unless we were prepared to wait another twenty minutes for someone to answer the bell provided) Later on in the day we met an English man working there, we asked about the woman of the house with whom we had booked our rooms over the phone and he seemed offended and was very curt. The rooms were spotlessly clean and 'The Quiet Man' pictures and quotes were a lovely touch. This morning at breakfast the couple who own the B&B were in the dining room looking after breakfast. They were friendly but the breakfast wasn't very good. We definitely could have stayed somewhere more hospitable with a better breakfast for less than what we paid. We were woken early by noisey pipes and general noise and breakfast was being served no later than 9:30, a little early for a Sunday. The same couple run the hostel across the road(and clearly have their fingers in many pies in Cong as we later discovered) and it would appear that they really need to decide which business they want to focus on as our experience left a lot to be desired.

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.
