About Me

Chris Byrne Owner Ardmore Country House B&B Kinnitty Co Offaly midway between Dublin & Galway“My home is your home

Hi. I am Chris. I have been living in this beautiful old house Ardmore House for 27 years and still get great pleasure each morning when I look through the  large picture window at  the beautiful green landscape of the Slieve Bloom Mountains.I have restored the house and garden to it’s former glory over the years and I love to share this wonderful place with the many guests who have stayed with me since I opened my home as a bed and breakfast homestay 25 years ago. Indeed many of you have come to love it as much as I and returned again and again. You are very welcome and it’s always a pleasure to see you. I know that you are really looking forward to a relaxing break from everyday life and I will do my utmost to ensure you will have it here.

My services

Comfortable cozy bedrooms, wide choice of breakfast, free wifi, information on tours of Ireland, Walking maps,

When you arrive and have settled in to you room you can enjoy a cup of tea or coffee with some freshly baked scones while I tell you about all the things to see and do locally. For dinner in the evening I can recommend my favourite local restaurant.

Afternoon Tea at Ardmore House Bed and Breakfast Kinnitty

On most Wednesday evenings you can join me and my friends at a traditional Irish music session in one of the local pubs. I play the fiddle and often take my guests to the session with me so that they will have a genuine Irish cultural experience, meet the real Irish,  enjoy folklore and music performed for our own enjoyment. You are guaranteed have a night to remember.

Another great love of mine is walking in the Slieve Blooms. There is a huge variety of walking trails  which I know very well. I can advise you on the different walks and provide you with maps, walking poles, a  flask of tea or coffee and a delicious packed lunch. For the outdoor enthusiast I have renovated a stone coach house at  the rear of Ardmore to create a drying room for walkers and cyclists and a lock up store for bikes and motor bikes.
