Testimonials

I stayed with my family in 3 separate rooms at this wonderful B&B. Patricia the Landlady, made us all very welcome. We each had different room styles but were all very impressed with our rooms, plenty of space to move around in and feel at home. The breakfasts are excellent and very generous, Patricia really does know how to do the “Full Irish” justice! If you are looking for a quiet, clean, comfortable, friendly and inviting place to stay I would have no hesitation in recommending Longford Country house. Stayed in September 2014, travelled with family.

Ellen - Cork - Ireland

This is a unique B&B in a very convincing Tudor house in the middle of beautiful Longford countryside. Lovely big bedroom. Patsy was very helpful and attentive, in fact she couldn’t do enough to make our stay enjoyable.

Caroline - Solihull, UK

Had a lovely 2 night stay with Patsy/Patricia. I arrived first where she warmly welcomed me and offered me tea or coffee along with showing me the living room with a fire blazing if I wanted to wait there for my boyfriend to arrive. We were told we were the first guests of the season – usually they open around Easter. Room itself was lovely – big room with a single and double bed. Plenty of storage if required. Had an ensuite off room with bath and good shower. Room was lovely and warm. On the Saturday, before we headed off to a function for the day, Patsy gave us big pot of tea and tea brack/fruit cake. Lovely touch! Breakfast both days was fab – selection of cereals with yogurt available before a Full Irish. No complaints at all! Would highly recommend.

If you are looking for a quiet location and a friendly place to stay in the Irish Midlands; then this is it. I was on a short break visiting friends and family in Longford. The welcome from Pat was warm and friendly. The rooms are very comfortable and the full Irish breakfast was stunning. This is the third time I have stayed at Longford Country House and I would highly recommend it.

My friend and I cycled Dublin – Sligo and stopped for the night in this lovely country house. We were greeted very well and a lovely cup of tea and biscuits on the front lawn. We had an early start the following morning but were accommodated with an early breakfast to set us on our way.Great spot, highly recommend it.

This was a wonderful place to spend our first night in Ireland. Beautiful, peaceful, great food, great company – perfect in every way. The rooms are beautiful and it was so interesting to hear the history of the house and to visit with and Patsy and their family. Don’t miss a chance to stay here!

Ellis - Penokee Kansas USA

We had a wonderful day at Longford Country House. The beauty and peacefulness of the garden as well as the whole area, including birds waking us up in the morning, were just what we had been looking for for our first night in Ireland. We also enjoyed the opulent breakfast.

Pollux - Berlin, Germany

Pleasant, easy to find country house. Loved the upstairs southwest corner en suite room with windows on 2 sides that provided perfect air flow. Bathroom and shower were clean, well vented with great water flow. Owner and hostess Patsy provided consistently great breakfasts with full cooked to order Irish breakfast, fresh fruit, yogurt varieties, breads, coffee, tea and juice. Close to downtown Longford and great “home base” for a drive to Barley Harbour, Saints Island and Ardagh. Wi Fi works throughout the house and grounds. Booked this lodging through travel agent; next time, will reserve directly with this B&B to save agent commission and to afford the Owner a few more dollars. Stayed May 2013, travelled solo

Alex - San Francisco, California

We stayed for 3 nights and were lucky enough to have the Suite, acres of space to move around and in complete luxury. Patsy was a fantastic host and couldn’t be more helpful or friendly if she tried. We could come and go at our leisure and she was always on hand if we needed anything. Very knowledgeable about the area and able to suggest loads of places to visit or eat at. Would definitely stay there again and recommend to anyone visiting Longford. We had the suite but all rooms looked equally furnished and clean, I’m sure all would be great. Stayed May 2013, travelled as a couple

Joseph - Luton, England

Quiet location with turf fires, good food and a short drive from Longford. Patsy makes it the perfect location to relax and be cared for. The rooms are large and clean and our four night stay will not be our last. The sun rises over the front of the house so if you want a longer lay in choose the back of the house. Stayed October 2012, travelled as a couple.

Dalestraveller - Dales, Folk

My week-long Midlands adventure was wonderful, and the best part of it was my two-night stay at Longford Country House. My room there was clean, comfortable and quiet; the breakfast room and lounge were warm, well-lit and beautifully furnished and the traditional Irish breakfasts were delicious — especially Patricia’s home-made damson jam! Of course the real treasure of Ireland is its people; friendly, kind, generous and engaging. Patricia and her family are proof of that. I enjoyed delightful conversations with them. Both the house and the surrounding countryside are lovely. Although Longford Country House is a bit far from town to walk, if Pat was going into town, she gladly adjusted her plans so she could take me with her when I wanted to go. A couple of times I used Ted’s Taxi Service, which was also a treat. Ted, a friend of Patricia’s, is a great guy. He and I quickly became friends. He showed me parts of the area, including a peat bog and turf-cutting-and-drying operation, I might not otherwise have experienced. He was a perfect guide and companion. Ted recommended (and drove me to) the Purple Onion restaurant in the neighbouring village of Tarmonberry, where I enjoyed the best lamb-chop dinner ever. On our way there, he told me something about Patricia I’d never have guessed, judging from her fairly matter-of-fact demeanour: she’s a terrific dancer, he said, and always the life of the party! If you’re visiting Longford, there’s only one place to stay: Longford Country House.

stevenamick - Beavercreek, Oregon

These are very pleasant accommodations in a beautiful country home. Our room was spacious and clean with a lovely view. Patsy helped us feel settled and comfortable after our long drive with tea, biscuits and a friendly chat. She is well informed about the area and is very willing to share her knowledge. Her breakfasts are excellent and plentiful. This is truly a lovely place to stay. Stayed June 2012, travelled as a couple.

LauraAG7 - LC,USA

This comfortable country house is a very convincing replica of an older home, but without the creaky floors. We had the only king size bed I saw in an Irish B & B. I particularly enjoyed the welcoming peat fire and candlelight in the two story sitting room. What a refreshing pause after a day driving on the “wrong” side of the road. Our room was spacious with an enormous tub to soak in and a separate shower. Patricia is extremely knowledgeable and accommodating in addition to being funny and friendly. A great place to stay.

MaryAnn - Iola, Kansas

If you’re looking for a true Irish welcome, in a comfortable rural setting then look no further! Patricia and Peter are perfect hosts, friendly and knowledgeable about the area. I was visiting family and getting started on my family tree, so Patricia help was invaluable. The breakfasts were exceptional and usually meant I didn’t feel hungry until late afternoon. Nothing was too much trouble and I was made to feel part of the family. I would gladly stay again, and would highly recommend Longford Country House to anyone visiting longford.

atropos_uk - Birmingham, United Kingdom

The landlady was absolutely lovely and made our stay very comfortable and relaxed. The accomodation itself is stunning, such a beautiful house. As it is just outside the town of Longford, a peaceful nights sleep is guaranteed. The owners also offer cottages nearby which looked fantastic too! Breakfast was more than adequate, served in a warm and friendly atmosphere

Stayed March 2012, travelled on business.

John Venney - Newcastle N.Ireland

We (four of us) had to make a last minute dash to Co Longford for a couple of nights. After reading some good reviews about the Longford Country House, we phoned & managed to book 3 rooms for our two night stay. The house is tucked well away from the hustle & bustle of town, perfect for a relaxing few nights & the worlds friendliest pub (The Old Forge) is a mere €7 away in a taxi. We were greeted with a very welcoming pot of tea on arrival & shown to our en suite rooms which were spacious & beautifully decorated. The showers were proper showers, good & strong & plenty of hot water. I cant remember the last time I didn’t finish off my breakfast but Patsys portions had me bursting at the seams, two of everything, a never ending flow of tea & coffee, a full Irish! Fantastic house ran by very nice people, Peter & Patsy. Thank you for your hospitality at such short notice & we’ll defiantly be back for longer next time, maybe to make use of one of the cottages :). 10/10 from me.

Father_Fred - Brighton, United Kingdom

Charming rural setting, clean & comfortable room. Patsy ,our hostess, was helpful with directions into Longford town for an evening concert and back. Delicious cooked to order breakfast in bright dining room. I would recommend this lovely country quiet accommodation. Stayed September 2011, travelled with family.

wnapma - Gloucester, Massachusetts

We only stayed for here one night but we thoroughly enjoyed our visit. It is a beautiful house, full of character and you’re sure of a warm welcome and a relaxed stay. We would definitely recommend this accommodation.

Leo & Mary - Armagh, N. Ireland

We only stayed for one night on our way from Dublin to Sligo but we really loved the house so big and so stylish. The lady was very kind and I loved to have tea when we arrived in the late afternoon.The breakfast was a nice start of the day. I wished I could stay longer!!!

amanchan3 - Utrecht, The Netherlands

We loved this 1970’s authentic reproduction of a Tudor country house. We assumed the house was very old as such a brilliant job was done in its planning an construction, but the owner told us she and her husband had an architect build it on land behind her childhood home (now gone). She lit a peat fire and candles for us in the comfy ‘great room’ when we arrived in the driving rain. We all enjoyed her friendly yet not intrusive visit with us. Breakfast was fantastic. It was a charming stop between Mayo and Dublin. A treat all the way around! Stayed June 2011, travelled as a couple.

letsgo1717 - Sandy Springs, Georgia

We stayed for one night in this lovely country house. We had a great sleep as it was lovely and peaceful and a big Irish breakfast which was much needed with plenty of food and breads. This house has the country charm and is lovely and clean with big rooms. Stayed June 2011, travelled with friends.

G_24_11 - Galway, Ireland

We stayed at Longford Country Homes for our 5 night stay in Longford, Ireland. Our room was a large room, nicely decorated with a very large private bathroom. Was perfect for our stay. The house is a ways out of town and very quiet and comfortable. Patsy the owner took great care of us. Would highly recommend to anyone going to Longford.
