Ardmore Country House Kinnitty, Bed & Breakfast guest accommodation midway between Dublin and Galway, near Slieve Bloom Way
“My home is your home“
Hello. Over the last few months I realize I am so lucky to be living in the beautiful village of Kinnitty with the Slieve Bloom Mountains on my doorstep. Wide open spaces, no crowds just nature. In a few minutes I can be walking in the woods with the birds singing, listening to the Camcor river gently trickling over the stones or watching a red squirrel scuttling up a tree. I have been living in Ardmore House for the last 27 years and have enjoyed restoring this fine old house to it’s former glory and developing the gardens. It’s a joy to wake up each morning and take in the beautiful lush green landscape of the Slieve bloom Mountains through the large picture windows of Ardmore House. 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 26 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.
Taking care of guests. Comfortable cozy bedrooms, wide choice of breakfast, free wifi, wholesome packed lunches, information on best local attractions and tours of Ireland, Walking maps.
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.
I can arrange horse-riding in the Slieve Bloom Mountains for a half day, full day or longer packages. I can arrange to have you picked up from Ardmore House.
Ireland’s most haunted Castle Leap Castle is just 6 miles from Ardmore Country House.
I love gardening and when you have finished relaxing in mine you can visit the famous gardens at Birr Castle Gardens, Emo Court House and Gardens, Belvedere House & Gardens.
The Outdoor Sculpture Trail at Lough Boora Parklands, the Shannon Callows are great places for bird watching and just a short distance from Ardmore House Kinnitty.
