Latest B&B Ireland Customer Reviews
Cannot say enough about the hospitality my 3 friends and myself received from Carmel and Chales! They were so personable and welcoming which made our Irish holiday perfect! Delicious breakfast and Chsrles was the greatest head waiter! A very comfortable home and a great location as we drove east to west. Carmel's suggestion to stop in Adare was wonderful. Thank you Carmel and Charles, you are lovely!
My two cousins and I stayed at Ballingowan for a whole week, apart from one night in the middle where we stayed in Clifden, Connemara. Coming back to Ballingowan after Clifden felt like coming back home! Carmel and Charles are such gracious hosts and the three of us were perfectly comfortable and well-fed every morning for the new day's adventure. The location is great for traveling to the four points of the compass: west to Kerry, south to Cork, east to Tipperary, and north to Galway. That was our prime criterion for choosing Newcastle West, so we wouldn't have to change B&Bs every day. The warmth and charm we met there confirmed we had made just the right choice!
Carmel and Charlie were extremely wonderful hosts. They are very friendly and very willing to help with anything. Carmel recommended a few places for us to see and eat and they were great. The breakfast we had was the best of our 9 day stay in Ireland. The home was comfortable, lovely, and very clean. My wife and I really enjoyed our stay with them and would definitely return. One thing to note, which is common in many B and B's, is that you need to carry your luggage up a flight of stairs. Something to consider if that is difficult for you. Also keep in mind that it is a lovely older home with allot of character. If you are expecting lots of modern amenities (ie. large flat screen TV's, etc.), you might be disappointed. It is in a good location, right on the main road, toward Adare/Limerick. For some reason, our GPS had some issues finding it so just beware.

Surrounded by a beautiful garden, this lovely home was perfect. Breakfast was delicious; room comfortable; and enjoyed the wonderful conversations with Carmel and Charles who welcomed us like a part of their family.
