The Pilgrims Rest Hotel (ADULTS ONLY)
Ranked #2 of 3 Hotels in Cappoquin
Reviewed 1 December 2011

From the moment we walked through the front door of the Pilgrims Rest our journey was amazing. The warmth of our hosts David and Mary we had never experienced before. The freshly cooked food... the beautiful bedrooms ensuite. So many great walks around this area which featured on RTE tracks and trails show lately. Very close to Clonmel and Dungarvan if a bit of shopping required. All round perfect place at a very reasonable price.. Have started planning next trip....

Room Tip: All good rooms......

The Pilgrims Rest hotel is a warm and friendly place to stay. My room was spotlessly clean and with a gorgeous en-suite bathroom. The hotel is beautifully maintained and decorated in keeping with the building's tradition and history. It was once the "Ladies Guesthouse" of Mount Melleray Abbey. In days gone by women could not stay at the monastery and were accomodated outside the gates at what is now the Pilgrims Rest. However there is nothing penetential about this very welcoming hotel. The accomodation is comfortable. The food is tasty and wholesome. The location is peaceful but not too remote. A trip to nearby Lismore with it's towering castle (the Irish home of the Duke and Duchess of Devonshire) is a must as is a visit to the Abbey where the monks welcome visitors to their daily prayer. The times are available at the hotel. A stay at the Pilgrims Rest is highly recommended for anyone looking for a relaxing stay in a lovely location.

We arrived here for a weekend. We had never been to this part of Ireland before. On arrival we were greeted by David who couldn't do enough for us. The hotel itself has a lot of history associated with the surrounding area. The hotel was very clean and comfortable. The very limited choice menu was delightful. Our room was very clean. The flat screen television seemed out of place with the old style decor. The nearby Mount Melleray Abbey is well worth a visit. The scenery is stunning. This is a family run hotel and the hospitality was second to none. I hope to go back for a visit in the future.

This family run hotel could not have been more helpful in every aspect of my stay. The room was a good size with a lovely double bed and a rather large bathroom which is a refreshing change from the newly built hotels. Adelightful big bath and plenty of hot water to luxuriate in. Would highly recommend this hotel to anyone. If you are looking for hectic night life this is not for you as it is set up in the mountains. An iddylic place to retreat from the rat race...lol

We had a lovely relaxing stay at this hotel.
The owners just could not do enough for you.
We visited Mount Mellery which is right beside the Pilgrims Rest and we did the tour of the Vee. It is an ideal location for touring.
