    • Stayed 1 night

    The bedroom was a little cramped (needs either more space or fewer/smaller beds)

    The staff was very cheerful, welcoming, accommodating, and efficient. Breakfast excellent. The bird and animal sounds in the country offer relaxing walks, provided you are not pressed to go to town quickly.

    There is no phone coverage so no wifi either. This is just due to being in Cavan and nothing to do with the house itself. It was a nice change to get away from phone and internet for a night but if it was needed by a person then it is something that people would miss

    The room was very clean, comfortable and warm. The owners were really lovely and went out of their way to make the stay extra enjoyable. located minutes from where I needed to be for work so it was ideal

    Wouldn't book again - over priced and didn't enjoy our stay given the low standard throughout.

    1. Room temperature was freezing when we arrived back to our room at night and in the morning. 2. No hot water in the room apart from the shower. 3. Advertised as a double bed however it was a botch job of two single beds pushed together, making our sleep very uncomfortable. 4. Medicore breakfast - juice tasted off, cereal container covered in dust and tea pot dirty. Overall one of the poorest breakfasts we've experienced in a b&b. 5. Dangerously poor lighting at the access to the dwelling at night, a sensor light came on at the last minute as we walked through the door after my boyfriend fell on his face (he was sober by the way!)

    Welcoming host on arrival - offered us tea.

    Was visiting family in the area and needed a place to stay. The hostess and her family were gracious and warm. Room was nice and had our own bathroom. Breakfast made to order. Jams and bread were homemade. They accommodated my gluten free requirements. Snacks, desserts, tea, and coffee available throughout the day. They arranged a rental car for us so shush had to go, pick it up, and pay. Provided recommendations on where to go in the area. While wifi doesn't reach the rooms, they allowed us to use their private living room for wifi access. Would stay there again when going to Cavan or driving through.

    I loved the way that Catherine and Sean treated me and my dog as house guests and not merely as b+b users. They had my curtains drawn and eleactric blanket on when I returned at night and had left food parcels, which were very welcome.

    • Family with older children

    The room was absolutely FREEZING. I got up in the middle of the night and my body was involuntarily shaking with the cold. The sheets were damp and smelled musty. There is no phone signal in the room we stayed in. I have 2 phones and my son had his phone, so it wasn't a service provider as neither Vodafone, 3 nor Meteor phones had signal. Neither could we pick up the Wifi from our room. I requested another room beside ours as it was vacant and the wifi could be faintly picked up but was told it was booked for the night. The lady did offer us the use of a sitting room in the family's section of the B&B her gesture was appreciated. €180 for 2 nights - for a B&B in the middle of nowhere is extortionate! Definitely would not stay there again nor recommend anyone else should either.

    The breakfast was fine, 2 sausage, 2 rashers etc and bread was topped up without request. The family were pleasant to speak to.
