We had the best time at Stirabout lane. It's cosy and pretty. Everything is tasteful and classy but you still feel like you're at home. The house is very old and was renovated by the hosts, beautifully. This is the most comfortable place you can imagine. We slept like babies. The hosts are kind and thoughtful, such nice people... And...

Rated 9.6 out of 10 for good reason. Quite location even though located on Main Street. Daphne, Pat and Patric we perfect hosts. Very comfortable room and the beds like home. Big shower and instant hot water a treat after a long day.

Daphne is a great hostess, excellent cook, and has put her heart and soul into running this gem of a b&b. You can tell by the amenities and the time and care picking out lovely decoration that Daphne runs one of the best b&bs in Ireland. The room we had was very large, and if you're like me, having a...

I cannot recommend a visit to this B&B strongly enough! So delighted and feel very well rested after mid week stay there. We paid €30pp per night and I felt it was fantastic value for money. You will have no regrets if you book to stay here. Our room was gorgeous, with the most comfortable beds and beautiful sheets. We...

We stayed here for a night whilst mountain biking in the area Just perfect! Daphne is a charming hostess and nothing was too much trouble! I have stayed here before and didn't hesitate to return as I knew the quality of the service.

We stayed here for a night with two children. Halloween weekend is a great weekend in Rathdrum. Our room was fabulous. Very spacious , warm and spotlessly clean. Decor was like a five star hotel . Breakfast the next morning was all homemade and worthy of the four seasons....... From waffles, to home made fluffy blueberry pancakes with very generous...

Daphne gives a warm welcome and is very good indeed at what she does. The rooms are well-presented. The bathroom smelled a little of bleach but that was evidence of the immensely clean environment. Breakfast (light and fluffy homemade blueberry and hazelnut pancakes with maple syrup and cream) was very naughty but a great set-up for the day.Daphne gave advice...

Not much I can add to the already glowing reports other than to ditto the comments! We stayed in almost 20 different BandBs during a month long trip to Ireland and this was among the most charming. Although there was only two of us, we were given a room with 3 beds (felt like goldilocks!) in a large room facing...
