About Country House Bed and Breakfast

 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 you 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.
