Miriam Sadlier Barry's unusual and very hospitable B&B would make a great base for a walking or cycling break, or for exploring this interesting area.

Old Bank House

Very close Lough Gur and the Ballyhoura Mountains (popular for cycling and walking breaks) Bruff is a lovely village within easy driving distances of a lot of interesting places  and Miriam Sadlier Barry's unusual and very hospitable B&B would make a great base for exploring the area.


Formerly a bank, it's a fine nineteenth century building with an impressive facade - and it's been well converted to make a substantial B&B, offering a high standard of accommodation. Some of the comfortably furnished en-suite rooms are suitable for families, others have four-poster beds and maybe a jacuzzi bath, and all have TV, tea/coffee facilities and clothes pressing. 


But it's the family's friendliness and hospitality that brings people back -  everyone loves the welcome cuppa served on arrival, the home baking, the cooked to order breakfasts and the sense of being in a family home.   


 No evening meals, but guests are directed to The Old Bake House Restaurant or Clancy's pub nearby.


A comfortable and homely place to stay - and at a reasonable price for the standard offered.


*The Old Bank House has two meeting rooms - the capacity of the larger room is 16 (U) or 24 (class room style), the smaller room has a max of 10 persons in a U format.

Rooms 9 (all en-suite, 2 shower only, 2 family, 2 executive, 1 single, all no smoking); B&B €45-50 pps, ss €10. Children welcome (under 3s free in parents room, cot available free of charge); Closed 23-27 Dec. MasterCard, Visa, Laser. abbreviations
