Very difficult to find as the B&B sign had fallen down.

The room was dreadful, I couldn't believe this place got such high reviews on this site, I was gobsmacked.

We were attending a wedding nearby and when we arrived back afterwards there was no running water! Couldn't brush our teeth, flush the toilet etc. The next morning it still wasn't back and when I asked the staff when it would be back they said they didn't know. We couldn't have a shower, use the toilet, basic requirements. I couldn't believe there was no apology offered or explanation given. Dreadful experience.
Thank EmaHay

I stayed here in September 1981, the night before the Hurling final between Galway and Offaly. I arrived after dark (I was on foot) with no booking and the kind lady not only gave me a room, but prepared a very welcomed lovely spread of food for me. I was 27 then and now I'm 64 and I still remember it. I'm hoping to get back there soon. Maybe tour the Kilbeggin distillery and go to a hurling match in Tullamore or something. I wonder if the same people still operate it? Cheers from sunny Florida.

We stayed for one night before making our way to a wedding venue the next day (in Mount Druid). Dan was absolutely amazing and went above and beyond for us - I cannot thank him enough. From making us tea and giving good conversation when we arrived late in the evening after our flight was delayed into Dublin to recommending the Kilbeggan Whisky tasting experience and giving us a lift there! Breakfast was also spot on - my first ever full Irish. Great place to stay if your ever in Kilbeggan or have a wedding in Mount Druid/Mullingar, the b&b had everything we needed.

We spent two nights at this charming B & B in Kilbeggan. Dan the owner is a really interesting and friendly man, and was always extremely helpful in every way. He made a convincing argument for living a non-meat, more or less non-dairy, healthy vegetarian lifestyle, with his home-made "smoothies" of eight or more vegetables with coconut milk, largely because he himself was such a picture of health! His breakfasts were always very generous and there was always fresh tea being made. He is a mine of local information, and our stay was very pleasant.

Stayed a Friday and Saturday night with my wife and daughter. A vey welcoming host, clean rooms and good breakfast
Everything a B & B should be, with the added benefit of plenty of parking, a stones throw from town, but at the same time in the country, so if you are into that walking business it's a good location for that too
