We loved this place. It is a gorgeous farm tucked away in a pretty part of Ireland with ancient ruins nearby to explore. The farm itself is stunning, with rooms overlooking the farmlands and lots of pigs, goats, chickens, cats, dogs and more to look at which was great for our six year old son. The breakfasts are amazing, serving...

Mark and Amarie are amazing hosts. As soon as we arrived we were offered coffee then given a tour of the property and a hand-drawn map with local trails and restaurants. Stayed here with my 6 yr old daughter and she loved the animals - especially Bruce. Many other kids were there and they were allowed to play together and...

Ann-Marie and Mark are wonderful hosts. The place is Beautiful. Ann-Marie accommodated our request at the last minute. We would have liked to stay there for 2 nights but were booked in Doolin for the second night. When you get there, simply follow Mark's instructions - Food from the Indian Take-away, drink @ the bar and the walk in the...

We stayed here for two nights after visiting the Rock of Cashel. This bed and breakfast is a gem and should not be missed. Very family and kid friendly. It's on a small farm next to a stream. My 3 boys did not want to leave. We stayed at the finest places in Ireland over 2 weeks (including Ashford Castle),...

This was our first stop after landing in Dublin. The place is located on a lovely property and the atmosphere is of a working farm. The room was a little small but quite fine for us. (Note: The wifi doesn't work in the room but we didn't mind going to the common room) We enjoyed the breakfasts tremendously. Guests sit...

Stayed two nights in this beautyful place, we will absolutly return. Annmarie is the most wonderfull host, when she is preparing breakfast, your feel like you are among friends, despite this was our first visit. Tranquility and relaxation were the feelings, we got right from arrival, the nature is amazing. It is remote, but a picnic by the river was...

We were lucky enough to meet Mark and Ann-Marie and stay in their b&b on July 13th. Such a beautiful place and wonderful hosts. We were given a tour of their property and their almost built treehouse suite as well as their incredible home. At the end of the tour, we toasted with a wee glass of poitin, an irish...

This is the rare case when I completely disagree with probably well-deserved high ratings of this B&B by other guests. Room was rather small, had strong odor, and not very clean, owners were rather unfriendly, the wait time to get breakfast was more than 45 minutes, weak Wi-FI only in one location (not in the room). Pretentiousness while serving breakfast...

You can please most people most of the time. But you can't please all of the people all of the time! We are saddened that you didn't feel the warmth of Lawcus Farm. Mark and Ann-Marie.

We booked one night and wound up staying three. We couldn't tear ourselves away from this gorgeous property and were lucky enough to have it available to us- next time we will book well in advance and stay even longer.

It sounds paradoxical to be treated like royalty and family at the same time, but Anne Marie and Mark make you feel so special and welcome. The rooms are large and spacious, the grounds extensive, and the kitchen and eating area so unique ... and yet it's the hospitality (dare I say friendship after only one night there?) that will...
