It's convenient to the town center--just a few minutes' walk. Breakfast was simple and wholesome. The sitting room and its comfy chairs and sofa provide a respite when...

Abbey Lodge was our favorite place to stay in Ireland - wonderful views of the water and mountains and it came with an energetic B&B operator, Hugh Maloney, whose company we enjoyed plus he took excellent care of us.

We stayed 2 nights at the Abbey Lodge, and were very pleased. The views out of the sitting rooms and our room were lovely, both in sunshine and in rain. It was also a real treat to have wireless internet access. The lodge was less crowded since we were there midweek, so our stay was extremely quiet and relaxing. The...

Hugh Maloney, the innkeeper, helped us in every way imaginable! Rooms are spacious, clean, comfortable, quiet, and well appointed. Grounds are beautifully landscaped. The view of the waterways and cliffs is beautiful. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay. Coffee was perfect; breakfast fantastic.
