“A working farm”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 26 June 2014

Groveside Farms is a working farm out in the countryside close to Kilmore Quay. It is very clean and modern and your hostess, Mary Cousins, is very helpful. When we arrived late in the afternoon, she immediately offered to call the local ferry to Saltee Island to check on the times and reserve a spot for us the next day, allowing us to go to Kilmore Quay for the evening and relax. It's a littlee hard to find the farm at first, but worth the effort.

I would have no hesitation in recommending this B & B to anyone visiting the Kilmore Quay area.

The house is situated on a quiet country road between Kilmore Quay and Bridgetown. If you turn off at the sign for the B & B from the main road into Kilmore Quay it is further down the road than you might expect so just keep driving you won't miss it. There is a further sign down the road to let you know to keep on driving.

The inside of the house is bright, welcoming and very clean with a large lounge for guests to repose with patio doors opening out on to the lawns. Tea and coffee is always on offer here with freshly baked cakes. The layout of the gardens provides privacy if you wish to sun bathe or do a bit of quiet reading. The bedrooms are all bright, well decorated with extremely comfortable beds.

On arrival my husband and I were greeted with a very warm welcome from Mary (the lady of the house). She is a outstanding hostess and does her utmost to accommodate your needs during your stay.

Mary provides a variety of items for breakfast including freshly prepared fruit salad, a cooked Irish breakfast and home made breads in a bright, airy dining room. My husband required an very early breakfast before his trip out to the Saltees and Mary provided this (including the cooked Irish breakfast) within hesitation.

Mary, Shaney and her sons all made us feel very welcome even offering us lifts down into Kilmore Quay, if required. They are all good at providing information on the surrounding area, restaurants, etc.

If you are considering visiting the Kilmore Quay or surrounding area I would suggest that you check availability at Groveside Farm as your first preference. You will not regret it.

We had a few days staying at Groveside, visiting relatives. The location is a great base for visiting the Kilmore Quay area, and bridgetown (check out the newly opened Button & spoon Tea Room). Our room was delightful, clean and spacious. The breakfast was delicious, and hospitality is superb. Thank you Mary for our stay, we'll certainly return x

This B&B is perfection itself. The hosts are charming, helpful and very welcoming. The house is immaculate with spacious bright rooms and cozy beds. The lounge is also very spacious and comfortable with tea/coffee facilities and freshly baked goodies. The breakfast is superb, with cooked options, real coffee and plenty of fresh fruit, toast/cereal too. We arrived on a Friday evening intending to spend the following day on the beautiful Saltee island for bird (especially Puffin!) watching (boat leaves from Kilmore Quay). The battery of our car died that Friday evening in their driveway. Mary drove us to the boat the next morning and whilst we were on the island, she bought a new battery for my car and her son fitted it. She also filled our thermos flasks with hot water that morning so we could have tea on the island, and made sure we had transportation back to the B&B to collect our car - which was ready to go. This is an exceptional family running an exceptional B&B. I only wish we had stayed longer.

We would endorse all the other reviews - homely and comfortable and beautifully appointed and definitely one of the best B&Bs we stayed in. The bedrooms were the best and home cooking and a warm Irish welcome by Mary will take us back again in the future. Our son had flown in to Dublin from South Africa and this was our second night - he was most impressed and hoped the other B&Bs on our tour of Ireland would be the same standard.

Our brief stay afforded us a good night's rest and a very good breakfast. The home was beautifully maintained and decorated. It's close proximity to the Irish ferry to the UK helped us take an early ferry crossing and early breakfast was easily arranged . The only small difficulty was in finding it. I would heartily recommend.

We stayed at Groveside Farm on two nights recently: it's an excellent place to stay, especially if you, like us, are en route to the west of Ireland. Comfortable, spacious, quiet, really clean, warm Irish welcome by Mary. Close to excellent restaurants at the lovely Kilmore Quay. Couldn't have asked for better: we really recommend Groveside Farm, especially Mary's splendid breakfasts; which she will kindly serve early id you need to catch the early morning ferry. Cheers and thank you, Mary
