We made reservations via our US travel agent and Brenden Vacations. The setting was beautiful with rolling hills and close to Kinsale. The rooms were comfortable and showed as new with spacious bathrooms. Our host could not have been more helpful and prepared a very nice breakfast with lots of variety. Upon our hoists suggestion we went to Kinsale for...

We are spending four weeks in Ireland and wanted to stay on a farm B&B. This is a nice home, but really not a farm. Yes you can go see the cows, etc. but not a farmhouse. It is also out on a narrow country road about 20 minutes from Kinsale - not a good idea to drive in the...

We found lochinver farmhouse without much difficulty and Helen was a welcoming host. Our room was very comfortable and clean. Even though we arrived mid evening Helen gave us a hot drink and cakes which was very welcome. Breakfast was freshly cooked to order, and delicious . The view from the farmhouse is beautiful and I would recommend staying here.

Our stay at Lochinver Farmhouse was in mid-July 2012. Although the location is somewhat remote, we were able to find the location thanks to our Garmin. Helen met us at the door and welcomed us to her home.....the view out the front window is spectacular. Helen offered us coffe and snacks and we chatted for a few minutes about the...

We had a wonderful experience at Lochinver Farmhouse and would recommend it to anyone who is looking for a beautiful quiet rural setting, super comfortable beds, immaculate rooms, large spotless baths, delicious homemade breakfasts made to order, and gracious hospitality. What more could you ask for ? It was a short drive from Kinsale, situated near a beautiful river and...

Although Lochinver Farmhouse is in a rural area, it was easy to find. Mrs. Forde greeted us upon arrival and assigned us the River Room which had a view of --- the river! Also the views of the pasture lands was beautiful. The following morning, we watched as the cows formed a single line and headed for the milking shed....

I would like to start this review by saying that my standards for a bed and breakfast in Ireland weren't set that high (although Cahergal Farmhouse raised them pretty high). Our trip was designed to drive across the country and stay at different places along the way. All that we were asking for was a clean room and a comfortable...

The Lochinver Farmhouse is nestled near a field of cows, above a winding river in a beautiful Irish countryside. Helen's hospitality is wonderful. She provided directions to many interesting places to discover. The home is immaculate and the breakfasts are delicious.

We loved our stay with Helen! It was the most peaceful place we've ever been.While it took some determination to find it (without a GPS), we were rewarded for our perseverance! Sunrise at Lochinver will long live in our memory with the cows grazing on the hill, the river winding its way through the countryside, and the sun peeking through...

“As for a room that overlooks the cows coming/going to the milking shed in the morning.”

“Don't bother staying here. The walls are paper thin. You'll hear anything going on in your bathroom, and your neighbors bed/bath rooms. There is no privacy at all.”

“Ask for a room with either twin beds or a king bed. The double beds are difficult for those used to king sized beds - or even queen size!”
