  • Great accommodation. Peggy was very friendly and understanding with our needs as we were making a flying visit for a special occasion. Totally flexible with arrival times as well. The breakfast was great, rooms were comfortable and clean. Well worth it, thank you!

  • Lovely stay with a welcoming host.  Room was great and comfy.  Close to Kells and other attractions.  Breakfast and wifi were both fine and couldn't ask for more.  Would recommend to all who value a solid B&B and would definately stay again.
  • Teach Cuailgne/Cooley House was wonderful. My brother and I had adjoining rooms in a separate area of the house. Each of our rooms could comfortably accommodate a family! They each had a full bath, a TV and a compact kitchen, with microwave, sink and refrigerator! My bed was almost too comfortable to leave in the morning. Peggy O'Reilly provided us with a sumptuous breakfast in the dining room of the main house, and with advice on how to find things and how to get around. When I left something behind in the closet, she even drove it to our hotel in Dublin later in the week, to be sure it got to me before our departure. This B&B is a little off the beaten path, but not too much so, and it was perfectly located for our purposes.

  • So easy to find and get to, right on the main road with a lovely garden to shield guests from traffic sounds. Thick towels, tea in the room, luxurious comforter and pillows, Big Irish Breakfast, accommodating hosts. This was our first stop and we felt completely pampered. Loved it!
