We had two rooms for three nights. Each room had a spare single bed in it, which is great if you have a row ! Nuala, the owner was really nice and cooked us glorious full Irish breakfasts with Irish bread/croissants/toast etc etc. The rooms were a good size and very clean. Just a very good place to stay and... More

We did the suggested brewery tour and agree it was really great. It took 10-15min to walk into town and it is... More

We only had one night at Melrose House and as others have said Nuala is the shining light here.

We walked into town and spent the rest of our time their returning after dinner. It's not far to walk,... More

Nice B & B, helpful host and nice large room clean and tidy. Good car parking but not that close to town, we ended up driving in at night for a meal. Bed getting a little tired but would still recommend this place.

Let's start with what is right about Melrose House. Nuala is a great B&B host. She was very helpful with recommendations and accomodating any requests we had. The rooms are spacious and the car park is very convenient. The house and the rooms were very clean. Nuala has stocked the room with some thoughtful extras like a shoe shine kit... More

We stayed two night's at lovely Melrose House. The owners were very helpful and made wonderful Irish breakfast. The rooms were clean and the breakfast was delicious. The house is on a quiet street that is away from the noise of downtown and only a few minutes walk.
