More than the average BnB, Bellatrix is a Holistic environment, apart from lovely modern clean accommodation and fantastic breakfast, it offers space to chill out, read, play table tennis or sit in the beautiful garden surrounded by panoramic views. Its great that you can access a kitchen for making a supper or chill a nice glass of wine. You could...

Rita and Lainey are super hosts. A home away from home for me. Breakfast amazing, everything you could wish for. We had great chats and I felt very supported about my view on certain things. Also had a sauna and a shiatsu treatment from Rita. Highly recommended.If I would live in Ireland we would definitely be friends. I hope they...

Is áit í seo atá thar moladh beirte. Ón nóiméad a shiúlann tú is teach an doras is feidir suaimhneas, ciúineas agus áilleacht an háite a bhraith. Tá na seomraí codalta ar ard chaighdeán. Is iontach na raidharce atá le feiceáil ón seomra suite compórdach a roinntear leis na daoine eile. Tugann Rita sár aire duit agus bíonn bricfeasta blasta...

Everything here was so wonderful: the breakfast was delicious and filling; Rita's advice about what to do in the area was spot-on, especially hikes for seeing the wildlife and the area; the room and bathroom were perfectly lovely; Lainey's advice about driving back up to Dublin was very clear and accurate. The entire area is so worth a visit and...

I could not have hoped for a better 4-night home-away-from-home experience! From the deliciousness of the kitchen to the warmth, friendliness and wonderful senses of humor of the hosts, Rita and Lainey, honestly Bellatrix was a true delight! It is clean, comfortable and wholesome. It has a way of touching all of the senses...the views are out of this world,...

Not a fan of B&Bs and apart from the great accommodation and delicious breakfast Bellatrix offers so much more than it's title 'B&B' suggests.... the warmth and hospitality and facilities that Lainey & Rita provide in their home are in my experience unique. As the saying goes 'strangers are just friends you've never met' and this has never been more...

Without a doubt the nicest B&B I've ever stayed in. Run by Lainey and Rita who look after you like family. Breakfast is delicious (have the Rosti topped with cheddar and fresh herbs) and the girls are great for tips on local walks and things to do. Rita gives a great shiatsu massage and also gives guided walks. Option of...
