This is perfect place to stay for anyone going to a wedding in Borris. Elaine was so nice to drop us into the Step House Hotel for the wedding. And a beautiful breakfast the morning after. I would definitely recommend this place to anyone.

Have just spent the weekend at the Forge. Elaine and Dave were the most amazing hosts. We spent three nights with them and nothing was a problem, the choice for breakfasts were fantastic, the size of the rooms were brilliant and they even found time to run us in to town for the wedding. Were more than happy for us...

We stayed here very recently and found it a very pleasant place to stay. Like most visitors to this area we were attending a wedding in Borris. Only a 10 minute drive or the owner was happy to drop us. Breakfast was very good and great choice. Note not all the rooms have private bathrooms so do ask when booking....

Three of us were in the Borris area last December and thoroughly enjoyed our stay at the forge B&B. Elaine and David are great hosts and put on a superb breakfast, sets you up well for the day! The rooms are lovely and very clean. A very welcoming place to stay, a luxury B&B. Excellent breakfast selection. Highly recommended

We booked this B&B from reviews online as we were attending a wedding in nearby Borris House and accommodation at the venue was limited to wedding party. The Forge is spotless and the hosts were perfect. Tea and scones on arrival and an offer of a lift back into Borris to the wedding. Getting home is easy as there is...

Elaine and David were so welcoming when we stayed at The Forge while attending a family wedding in Borris. Set in wonderful countryside, the house is a very relaxing place to stay. Excellent breakfast at a time of our choosing. Although it is a short taxi ride from Borris, I would highly recommend The Forge and its very friendly proprietors.

Thank Mike M

“This is a small bed and breakfast it is in a lovely quiet area with no noise, and all of the rooms would be very similar, I don't think there would be a 'best room'”
