Reasons for trip


I chose Abbeyview B&B for one of our nights while we were in Ireland for a few days, and it turned out to be the best one that ticked all the boxes.

Abbeyview is a mile from Nenagh, on the Dublin road in North Tipperary, Ireland on the R445 road and just a few minutes drive from the M7 motorway (exit 7). It has a fresh looking, painted exterior standing in it’s own grounds with the road at the front, and a wonderful view of the mountains at the rear. Easy to drive into, with plenty of parking space.

Siobhan and her little dog gave us a warm welcome before showing us to our allocated room (4). It was very clean and spacious with an en-suite, TV, tea and coffee facilities. Wi-Fi connection was available. The bathroom had a nice range of toiletries available (unlike another place we visited on the same trip).

Home-made cakes and tea are made for you upon arrival – only we decided to go into town for an early meal. Siobhan was able to give us an excellent recommendation of where to eat, with precise directions. The Peppermill was the name and the food was delicious.

Guests have their own lounge in Abbeyview, where you can sit and relax, read or watch TV. There were plenty of books and brochures with places to visit available. (We visited Loch Dergh while we were there which is worth a drive to).

We had a good night’s sleep, before going down to a wonderful Irish breakfast which is served from 7am – 10am. There is a choice of traditional (full or half) Irish, Smoked Salmon scones with poached eggs, home-made waffles, continental and special dietary requirements catered for as well as cereals, fruit juices, yoghurt, fruit, bread etc.

While eating breakfast, I noticed a side building from the dining room window. It was an area for hanging washing – splendid idea! A small shed was attached, but the larger, 2 open sided area was perfect for the large amount of B&B laundry which has to be done. It is able to have the wind blow through, but keep the rain off when the weather is bad. As they do seem to get a fair share of rain in Ireland, I thought it was a marvellous idea.

Siobhan is a wonderful host and does everything possible to make sure you enjoy your stay.

Nearby, Nenagh is a country town built by the Butler family in the 13th century. There is a heritage centre and Genealogy Centre, a Norman Castle and Franciscan Friary. Food outlets include bakeries, coffee shops, restaurants, and many individual shops (not seen so much over here now)!

In all, an interesting place to visit and certainly an excellent B&B which I would highly recommend.
