On finding a deal of €45pp B&B for this guest house, myself and my boyfriend decided to stay here on our trip to Tipperary.
On arrival, we were greeted by the daughter of the owners who showed us three rooms, out of which we could pick. We chose Room 27, the largest room located at the front of the house. On entry, the room was chilly but quickly heated up when I turned the radiator on. A complimentary pot of tea and 2 slices of homemade cheesecake were brought up to the room soon after we settled in.
We didn't eat dinner here as we had already booked a more economical restaurant in Thurles but when we arrived back to the house later that night, the restaurant was full. We sat down in the living-room area beside the fire, and the daughter, already mentioned, brought us out another complimentary cup of tea and coffee and had a genuine chat with us.
The television in the room was small with 4 channels but there were 2 new magazines left on the table in the room and because it was so relaxing, there was little need to even turn it on.
Breakfast was delicious. Healthy, wholesome and fresh. Along with my poached eggs and homemade brown bread, I sampled some of their own black and white pudding which was undoubtedly the freshest I've ever eaten. Although I must admit that the smoked salmon wasn't good, I thoroughly enjoyed the meal, including freshly squeezed orange juice which is always a treat.
While I would not describe this guest house as overly-luxurious, there were countless numbers of 'little' delicacies that made our stay so enjoyable, such as the key of the front door which we were offered should we want to go to the nightclub in Thurles!, and the fresh rose on our table at breakfast. Furthermore, it was clean and warm and the service was absolutely faultless. The family who run it were friendly, helpful, down-to-earth and to be honest, I cannot say enough nice things about them. It was a relaxing and peaceful stay and not only will I most definitely return, I recommend that anyone visiting Tipp stay here. Truly delightful!
