Very welcoming family owned bed and breakfast. Stayed in the Bushmills room and it wowed my very Irish girlfriend. Most relaxing stay I've had anywhere and you can come and go as you please. We will be back without hesitation.

We had a lovely evening in this charming home. It is a short walk to a delightful restaurant (Bistro 70) where you get free dessert if you mention you are staying at Fitzgerald's. Tom has wonderful stories of Ireland and their home is beautifully decorated with mementos of their many trips.

Fitzgerald’s is hands down the best B&B I’ve ever stayed at. Debra and Tom not only make you feel like you’re visiting family, the house makes you feel like you’ve stepped into another world completely. Very highly recommended.
5 on September 12, 2017
My husband and I were so excited to return to Fitzgerald's! We first stayed for a few nights in December of 2015. Tom and Debra are SO welcoming, and amazing hosts. We always arrive a bit late (9 pm), due to traveling from the west coast, and they could not be kinder about this. We were able to stay for 5 nights this time, and I hated to leave. The house is incredible, so much attention to detail. We LOVE the Bushmill's room, on the third floor. Everything is SPOTLESS, throughout the house.

Loved it! Very Clean and Charming. Just half hour to Cleveland. Lovely community.

We had a great time and stay at the Fitzgeralds B&B. The breakfasts were great and filling. The owners were very friendly and welcoming. We would stay again.

We came to celebrate a 70th birthday and tour the Geneva Wineries. Debra and Tom were very friendly. Debra greeted us at the back gate and showed us around when we arrived. The backyard was lovely and also had a comfortable back porch. as well as the house. Breakfast was only served at 9;00 and we had to leave for an unexpected appointment at 8. They offered to make eggs for us. They were able to serve coffee before we left though. Sunday breakfast was lovely. We purchased the package which included some snacks and champagne as well as roses in the room. Most importantly it included a couple's massage at a local salon. It was a short walk and proved to be very relaxing. We had dinner Friday at a local fish tavern. The food and service were great. We enjoyed our stay and would return in the future. We love visiting local wineries. Many have outside patios and music along with fun appetizers. Lake County has a Medieval Fair for several weekends in the summer which is also a fun event.

My wife and I stayed just one night, and we can't wait to be back next year. Truly a great home with a lot of character. The Bushmills room was excellent. Modern amenities, with lots of Irish charm. The stocked mini fridge and snacks were a welcome surprise. Very relaxing backyard, just wonderful time.

Tom and Debra are delightful innkeepers . They were exceptionally accommodating and we had a lovely stay.

We typically stay at B&B's and this experience was Wunderbar!! The owners, Tom and Debra are genuine. We stayed two nights and felt VERY relaxed. The house is comfortable and spacious. We stayed in The Dublin Room. The bathroom is just a few steps down the hall. We took advantage of the outside seating and we're entertained by their ducks. Breakfast was delicious. We will be back!

We truly enjoyed everything about our stay and would recommend staying at Fitzgerald's to friends and family.

We had a cozy, comfy room. The Inn sitters were helpful, acommodating, and fun to talk with. Breakfast was well presented and delicious. It is a beautiful home in a quiet neighborhood within walking distance to many things. It was a sweet retreat.

We enjoyed an overnight stay in this lovely B&B which had lovely images of Ireland throughout the home. Very friendly hosts and a lovely rear porch and garden complete with two resident white ducks.
5 on May 20, 2017
Fitzgerald' Irish Bed and Breakfast may be the best B&B in the Midwest. Debra and Tom are friendly hosts who have gone out of their way to meet your needs as a traveler. The rooms are beautiful with comfortable beds, ample seating, modern bathrooms, a stocked refrigerator, and snacks. The house is full of antiques and curios that enhance the atmosphere an Irish country manor. We enjoyed sitting on the glassed-in porch that over looks the beautiful back yard and the pair of Manderin ducks. Thank you, Tom, for our wonderful stay. We will be back!

I was gifted two nights in the Bushmills suite by my husband and daughter as an early mother's day getaway. This was the perfect place for me to unwind, read a book, slkeep in, and enjoy being looked after for a change! The property itself is spotless, the suite was like a European cottage -I felt tucked in and cozy up there with perfect privacy. Hosts are gracious, genuinely welcoming and helpful to just the right degree, making themselves available and allowing me space to relax. The breakfasts were gloriously decadent and the company warm. It was a cold rainy weekend and it was perfect for snuggling up in the cloud-like bed with a book, glass of wine, and peace! I look forward to returning both with my husband and perhaps a later girls weekend to explore the local wineries. Lovely retreat!
5 on April 18, 2017
Tom and Debra are amazing hosts! They make you feel as if you are at home. The breakfasts are wonderful and the rooms comfortable, spacious, and very clean. I will not stay anywhere else when I am in Painesville!

Thoroughly enjoyed our stay. Tom and Deb are outstanding hosts. We felt right at home. The rooms are beautiful and are kept immaculately clean. We loved everything about Fitzgerald's Irish Bed & Breakfast. We would definitely stay with them again! P.S. You need to checkout Tom's awesome mug collection.
5 on March 08, 2017
If you want a place that feels like being in Ireland without the travel. This is the place. Tom and Debra Irish cottage feel was outstanding. The full breakfast on the weekends was wonderful. Everything was clean. We want to go back during the summer time to sit outside and enjoy the evenings on their patio. My daughter stayed here 5 years ago and said it was great, and it is. I was able to look at all the rooms and each one is charming. A safe place to stay.

My husband surprised me with a night at this amazing bed and breakfast spot. We have stayed at several b& b's and this by far was the nicest. We had the bushmills room. A very comfortable bed and a newly remodeled walk-in shower were our favorite parts of the room. The room had a kitchenette feature which included glassware & plates. We had gone to Geneva to meet friends at a winery so it was really nice to come back for the evening and have nice wine glasses and an corkscrew available in our room. The house architecture is simply breathtaking. Before breakfast we spent time chatting with the owners and they offered recommendations for local events & wineries. They are are friendly and charming couple that truly seem to enjoy inviting people to their home. The coffee was freshly roasted beans and served with delicious chocolate chip dried cherry scones. They also served fresh fruit, fresh juice, and a very healthy serving of a French toast casserole with local maple syrup and sausage. The food & coffee were plentiful and the presentation was excellent. We will definitely be back and recommend this beautiful b& b.

We were there for our honeymoon, beautiful two days, loved the room, loved breakfast and enjoyed the personal touches.

We thoroughly enjoyed our weekend getaway at Fitzgerald's. Our substitute hosts, Tom and Marlyn, were gracious and attentive and gave us great information about local restaurants and attractions. The Bushmills Room was beautiful, quiet, private and luxurious and just what we needed for peace and relaxation. Our fellow weekenders were a wonderful group and we enjoyed getting to know them at breakfasts. It would have been nice to have some variety in the two breakfasts we were served; however, the food was very good - especially the scones. Overall, we plan to return and look forward to more time at the beaches of Lake Erie and the wineries of northeast Ohio!

I posted a review on Trip Adviser; wonderful B&B with a clean, hospitable atmosphere. We would love to come back!
4.8 on October 01, 2016
Still having family in the Painesville area, we find ourselves back there once or twice a year. Fitzgerald's has become our "home back home". Debra and Tom are great hosts. Breakfast always starts with something delicious that Tom baked --scone or sweet roll, etc. Debra is enthusiastic and knows all the "spots" in the area for food or fun. Also have their own coffee blend from a local coffe shop -- great cuppa' in the morning. Floors creek, but that adds to the charm of the place. Rooms are big and comfortable. We'll be back again the next time we're in town...next year for sure for our 55th high school reunion!

Had an absolute beautiful weekend stay. The hosts were delightful and the breakfasts were out of this world
4.8 on July 31, 2016
Situated in a lovely neighborhood, the lodgings are a beautiful home, filled to the hilt with tasteful Irish relics and shamrock decor. The living room has an extremely high, exposed-beams, cathedral ceiling. Floors are hardwood throughout—a true plus. My only misgiving about reserving was dispelled by the next morning’s breakfast: They announce a full breakfast Friday through Sunday and a continental breakfast Monday through Thursday, and room rates are lower those nights as a consequence. Yet, far from leaving you unattended with a toaster, Innkeeper Tom—who is well-traveled—was on hand to help with the table (beautiful emerald flocked satin tablecloth, fine stainless flatware and porcelain place settings) set with carafes of hot coffee, orange juice, kiwi and melon (green!) in crystal compotes, already served scones, available grain cereals, granola bars, and I can’t remember what else. In other words, they don’t skimp even with a reduced breakfast. Makes us want to try a weekend stay, just for the traditional fare. The Fitzgeralds are experienced and cultured in professional hospitality. They provide lovely, comfortable bedrooms and know all the right area restaurants.
Thank you for your kind review and for staying with us. I also appreciate you pointing out the confusion about breakfast. I have made a change online to reflect a full breakfast served on weekends (Saturday and Sunday) and continental breakfast on weekdays.

We stayed two nights at the Fitzgerald's Irish B&B. The home is spotless. The decor is very tasteful. The bed was very comfortable. The grounds were beautiful. The home was decorated with fresh cut flowers from the garden. Tom picked and served fresh raspberries and red currents with breakfast. I would happily stay with the Fitzgerald's again and again.
5 on July 07, 2016
We loved this place. Even though the owners were gone on a trip, the substitutes were wonderful. Only problem was that there is no railing on part of the stairs, and as I use a cane, this was a bit of a problem.
4.8 on June 27, 2016
Personable, accommodating and friendly innkeepers. The Mayo Room was large and comfortable.
3.6 on June 26, 2016
Very nice b&b. The hosts were gracious and Painesville was more quaint than expected.
5 on June 22, 2016
The Fitzgerald was amazing to stay and dine. They are informative as to where most things are in the area. The breakfasts were amazing and so filling. The atmosphere was relaxing and just perfect for the time spent. The room was gorgeous and very clean. The only complaint the whole weekend was it was very cold in the room but we were on the first floor. Trying to regulate the temperature was a little tricky. But I will recommend the Fitzgerald 100%. It was great!!!!
5 on June 10, 2016
extremely helpful and accommodating--superb cleanliness and delightful decor-- very knowledgeable of area--fantastic food!
5 on June 02, 2016
The house is near the town square. Beach within 10 minutes, numerous wineries within a 20-30 minute drive. The breakfasts were huge and fabulous! Rooms clean, comfortable. Backyard is perfect for relaxing and the hosts second to none!
4.8 on June 02, 2016
Wow, what a pleasant surprise. I was looking for somewhere to stay for a 30th anniversary in Lake County. Found this place and took a chance. It exceeded both of our expectations. The owners are friendly and take care of anything you need. The home is unique and rooms spacious. The best part of the stay was the unique breakfast. I was worried because I am a picky eater but it was perfect. Could have been on the food channel! Thanks again for making me look good!
5 on June 02, 2016
My husband I spent our wedding anniversary at the adorable Fitzgerald's Irish Bed and Breakfast. The house has so much charm and character- it felt like we were really in Ireland. Debra and Tom were fabulous hosts and Tom's breakfasts were absolutely delicious! The location offers many activities with beach, wineries and antique shopping all within minutes. We will definitely be coming back to Fitzgerald's.
5 on May 31, 2016
Lovely home and garden with two pet ducks! Absolutely delicious full breakfast! Our hosts couldn't have been more helpful or accomodating!
5 on May 28, 2016
My wife and I stayed here on our first wedding anniversary, and we enjoyed it so much that we swore we'd come and stay every year. However, life happens, and we finally got to go back on our tenth anniversary. This time was probably even more enjoyable than the first! We stayed in the Bushmill Room, a cozy little third floor loft with a jacuzzi and a gorgeous glass shower, the head of which hangs down and makes it feel like it's raining while your showering (AMAZING!). Tom and Debra were in Ireland during our stay, but Tom (the Innkeeper?) was professional and courteous, and gave us amazing recommendations for restaurants to eat at. Fitzgerald's is conveniently located near a lot of excellent wineries, as well as beautiful Lake Erie beaches and parks. In all it was a fantastic weekend there, well worth the price of the room, and I hope to stay there again on our next anniversary!
3.8 on May 27, 2016
Enjoyed our stay in this Tudor style home - interior spaces were great. We especially loved waking up in our 3rd floor room with the morning sun shining in from the windows on 3 sides. Tom prepared a lovely breakfast for us with great coffee before we headed off to visit the Holden Arboretum nearby. Will stay again the next time we plan to be in the area.

The hosts are wonderful. It was a great find and perfect for us. I would highly recommend staying at Fitzgerald's Irish Bed & Breakfast.

The house very nicely decorated in Irish decor. Very homey. The room was nice and big. Hopefully we will be able to visit when it's warm and take in some of the sights.

We stayed in the Bushmill room which is in the attic. The slanted ceilings gave the room character. The owners did a nice job of renovating the attic space. The room included a fridge and sink. There were complimentary snacks and drinks for a donation. The room has it's own bathroom with a custom built walk in shower and a jacuzzi oblong tub that was big enough for two! We were there for Valentine's Day and it was quiet in our room. Monday morning breakfast was a continental breakfast with plenty to choose from. Don't forget to park at the church next door and come through the gate. We would recommend this to other couples for a quiet getaway weekend.
5 on February 21, 2016
Tom and Debra were wonderful people. We told them we were early risers and to our astonishment they had coffee and breakfast for us before 9am!
3.6 on February 17, 2016
We spent a Valentine weekend at this place. The place was easy access, and although we had to park at the church parking lot it was not inconvenient. The house is gorgeous both inside and outside and the rooms are really nice, too. We got really good recommendations or solutions to our questions/problem. The package we had was absolutely worth the money we payed for. The only thing we were not lucky with was the breakfast. There was no flexibility in time and the food did not taste fresh (the hash brown was so crunch we could not eat it--and the milk was bad on the second day, too.)
4.2 on January 14, 2016
Tom and Debra made us feel right at home. The room and common areas were exquisitely decorated and comfortable to enjoy some leisure time in while there. Our hosts were very enthusiastic about us enjoying our time there, both in and out of the house. Location is close to everything, but far enough away from Cleveland to feel like a secluded getaway. We will come back just for Tom's breakfast scones! ;-) Highly recommend a stay here!
4.4 on January 07, 2016
The owners and caretaker both made our stay pleasant and relaxing. The continental breakfast seemed more than just continental. The room was clean, and contributed to the comfortable atmosphere. There is easy access to a number of activities and restaurants within 10 minutes. My wife and I have celebrated our anniversary twice and have enjoyed each time here. We would both consider staying here again and recommending to anyone looking for a B&B in Lake County.
4.4 on December 12, 2015
Since my wife and I have no GPS in our car and only have a flip phone we got lost.With tom's excellent help we were guided to the Inn while talking to him on the phone. Debra made us feel welcome and in our stressed out condition that was a pleasure. The scones and coffee at breakfast were excellent. Tom also guided us to a local Italian restaurant for dinner that was very good(large portions at reasonable prices).We enjoyed our stay
5 on December 03, 2015
The owners are friendly, and our room was perfect!
5 on November 25, 2015
Debra and Tom were fantastic hosts -- extremely helpful and friendly, with great advice for dining on the town (Tom is an excellent cook, and the breakfasts he put together for us were wonderful!). My wife and I will certainly sing the praises of this place to anyone looking for lodging in the area.
4.8 on October 28, 2015
Stayed during business trip...owners went above and beyond to accommodate my needs. Would stay there again in the future both for business and for a getaway!
4.4 on October 21, 2015
We stayed only one brief night as part of an anniversary celebration, but would definitely come back again. The house is gorgeous architecturally and endlessly interesting in its decor. The room was comfortable and we loved the huge bathroom attached to the Galway. The jacuzzi tub was clean and in perfect working order. Our only complaint would be the softness of the bed because we have back issues and prefer hard mattresses. But perhaps the best part was that we had to leave by 8:30am for a conference and the hosts graciously moved breakfast up by an hour to accommodate us since we were the only ones staying in the house that night. We so appreciate anyone willing to sacrifice sleep on a Sunday morning! And the hot breakfast was well worth it - delicious and filling.
4.4 on August 05, 2015
What a beautiful getaway in a small town. Seems like you are far away from everything, yet 20 minutes away is downtown Cleveland. The B&B is beautiful, clean and wonderful host and hostess. We thoroughly enjoyed the lovely backyard and the pet ducks.

We had a fantastic weekend. The owners have done a great job decorating. Breakfast was very good. I would recommend all my friends to stay here.
5 on April 15, 2015
This was the most incredible Bed & Breakfast! I surprised my husband for his birthday and he loved it too. Food was excellent. The grounds were beautiful! Even though we were close to home we felt we had a true vacation. The woodwork is beautiful! The lace curtains leave the top half of the windows open so the sun shines into the room lighting it up in a quaint way. (No glaring sun on us!) Everything you could have wanted was available. It does have a lot of steps. But for us that was not a problem. Definitely will be coming back for another stay!!
Thank you for your kind review! Tom has been working on improving the yard and landscaping and we just bought new patio furniture. We look forward to seeing you again and hope that you will enjoy the upgrades..

I have stayed here twice for business. They treat everyone with respect and put forth the extra effort to make you feel welcome and comfortable.
5 on April 08, 2015
We spent 4 nights at Fitzgerald's and it was wonderful! We were in town visiting our son and his family and it was so nice to come back to the house at the end of very busy days and relax. The Bushmill room is beautiful and comfortable. Tom and Debra are wonderful hosts and Tom makes killer scones. could not have chosen a better place to stay! We will be back.
4.8 on April 06, 2015
Whenever I travel with work I try to stay at a local B&B. Fitzgerald's is definitely one of my favorites. This was my second stay with Debra & Tom. They are very friendly hosts and easy to feel comfortable around. It had been nearly a year since my first visit but they remembered me and asked about work, remembered that I liked to travel and asked if I had managed to take any new trips, and were more than happy to have breakfast out early for me so that I could get to my job site early as well. I definitely recommend this B&B for anyone traveling in Painesville!
5 on March 08, 2015
We had an awesome stay
4.4 on February 11, 2015
Very very nice B&B. All the rooms are nicely furnished and good sized. Excellent breakfast on weekends. Go to the Bistro nearby for dinner.
4.8 on February 03, 2015
The Bushmills room was cute and cozy with a nice jacuzzi bath tub. The whole house is comfortably elegant. The hosts were very friendly and welcoming. They suggested bistro 70 for dinner and it was perfect for a special night out. The breakfast was excellent, and we felt pampered by Debras service. The back yard looked gorgeous, If we hadn't picked such a cold night to visit I would have loved to spend some time there.
4.6 on January 12, 2015
Had to make an unexpected trip back to Ohio just after Christmas. We've stayed at Fitzgerald's before and knew what to expect. Those expectations were met. Great room, great breakfast and friendly, caring owners. Surprise was that Debra & Tom were leaving for Europe the day after we arrived and the folks that "subbed' for them turned out to be a high school classmate and his wife! Highly recommended.
5 on December 28, 2014
This has to be one of the most personable B&B's in the midwest, with gracious old world charm and great wifi. The hosts are attentive to every detail and also appropriately laid back and accommodating, making us feel at home and also private, and serving up delicious homemade scones in the morning. There are two beautiful and very happy Jemima Puddleducks in the garden, amiably quacking your entrances and exits. We had a wonderful time with the Fitzgeralds!
4.2 on December 28, 2014
We had an amazing time. Would love to stay again. Way better than any hotel. Very comfy and cozy!
5 on November 10, 2014
I used 3 of the 4 rooms at Fitzgeralds for me and my family to attend my son's wedding so I got to take over the place and it was perfect.

4.6 on October 12, 2014
This is a great place to stay for a quiet weekend getaway. It is close to the wineries (Your Vine or Mine is within walking distance- great desserts!). The house has a lot of character. I felt like I was on a trip in Ireland. The pet ducks that roam the back yard are awesome. Very friendly staff, unique rooms, amazing breakfast, all at an affordable price. The bed was very comfortable. The rooms and linens were very clean. This place really raises the bar for bed and breakfasts. I can't wait to stay at Fitzgerald's again. I would recommend this place to everyone.
5 on October 11, 2014
My wife and I have been married for 16 years and ONLY stay at B&B's. This, by far, was EXTRODINARY!!!!! The home was beyond beautiful. It was literally like stepping into the pages of Grimm fairy tale. The breakfasts were amazing and the committment to detail is second to none. We visited Cleveland for three days and felt it was well worth the 30 minute drive back and forth just to have this experience.
5 on October 03, 2014
my first time using a B&B, wow who knew it could be so pleasant. the owners were helpful, friendly, kind, and FUN". they made us feel at home right away. the outside was of the home was refreshing who knew "DUCKS" the entire property was spotless. food to die for ( I think someone is a chef ). I could write for hours about this place but I hate typing. so I encourage every one to stay at my new found little Ireland. you won't be disappointed. oh I almost forgot the charm above the door threshold was heart warming.
4.8 on October 01, 2014
A hidden gem in the city with a beautiful backyard and comfy rooms

The area is nice. Easy walking to the square (park) and a few dining places. The owners take good care of you.
4.6 on September 24, 2014
We recently visited wine country in northern Ohio and found Fitzgerald's B & B on the internet. We couldn't have been more pleased. The Irish music, the beautiful home with so many Irish "touches," and the hospitality of Debra and Tom, made our stay extremely comfortable. The bedrooms were huge and cozy at the same time. Waddles and Wiggles (ducks) were so cute. Every evening, our party of four, sat outside on the patio with glasses of wine. We'll definitely be back!
3.6 on September 17, 2014
We stayed two nights in the Galway room which is an updated, modern, spacious room on 1st floor. Innkeepers were very accomodating and courteous, especially Debra who was happy and smiling every time we saw her which tells us she really loves what she is doing. Loved the jacuzzi tub and the bed was quite comfortable. Breakfast was served by Debra in the dining room in 3 courses along with the other guests at one table and was different each day which was a bonus. My wife thought the breakfast combo was too sweet on the 2nd day but I enjoyed them both. The coffee could be better but then again we are dark roast drinkers. Debra also suggested a wonderful seafood place for dinner which exceeded our expectations so thanks for that! I like the fact you can come and go as you please with a room key as well as a key to the rear entrance but it would be nice if all the guests could manage to find their way back to the inn by 10pm or if arriving later be quiet and considerate of other guests. We were on the first floor and had no issues on the first night so it was great. However, on the second night a new couple had checked in above us didn't come back to the inn until 11:15 and they proceeded to walk around above us for a full hour! I honestly don't know why its necessary to walk around that much when its almost midnight except for the fact they didn't really care about anybody else except themselves. Since this is an older home, the floor creaks with every footstep so that was really annoying when you're trying to sleep as well as water running and flushing toilets, etc. I understand this is the risk you take when you stay on the bottom floor and I've had similar situations occur at other hotels so it was just unfortunate circumstances. Overall we had a great time and we would definately consider staying again. Beautiful B&B, just beware of the courtesy of the guests above you.

Very enjoyable stay, the Fitzgerald's made us feel like friends and family.

I read some mixed reviews about this place. but was happily surprised. The owners were phenomenal. The room was amazing. Was one of the best experiences we have ever had and I would encourage everyone to stay here.
5 on August 25, 2014
Best weekend. Tom and Debra go out of their way to make your stay easy and pleasant. Tom's breakfasts were fantastic. Loved the cut up fresh fruit every morning and of course the coffee. Could not believe how nice and spacious the Mayo room was. Would highly recommend Fitzgerald's bed and breakfast to anyone looking to stay in the area.
4.2 on August 15, 2014
Hosts made us feel very welcome. Enjoyed our weekend!
4.6 on August 12, 2014
Our hosts were gracious and the B&B had an authentic downhome Irish feel. The rooms were immaculate, themed with a blend of old and new. Our only regret was that the full breakfasts are server on the weekend and we were there mid-week. I bought the additional romance package and my companion was thrilled with the Champagne, flower, chocolates, robes and basket.
5 on August 06, 2014
We had a 2 night stay (Aug 4 & 5, 2014- the Mayo room) and it was amazing. The accommodations were outstanding and Tom and Deb were terrific hosts. We plan to return in Sept and also in Dec. This BnB is at the top of our list!
5 on August 06, 2014
Going to Fitzgerald's Bed & Breakfast is like going to a reunion where all your favorite people have congregated. The owners make you feel that welcome! The rooms are incredible, decorating remarkable, and the value fantastic. The morning breakfast is worth getting out of bed for! In summary, we can't wait to go back! The Catlin's
5 on August 05, 2014
When we found that this gorgeous b&b had an opening for our night out, we snatched it up. We were so glad we did! The atmosphere of the home is wonderful and everywhere you look you find something interesting. The backyard is lovely, with its fountain, lovely landscaping, and adorable pet ducks. And the breakfast? Oh my goodness, it was the most delicious breakfast I have EVER eaten! You won't be sorry you chose Fitzgerald's Bed & Breakfast for your getaway.

Fitzgerald B&B was beautiful! Nice BIG Rooms & Complimentary food & drinks in room as well. Didn't sleep well bed was a bit hard but then again who really sleeps well away from home? They do have an amazing back yard area to enjoy and the breakfast scones are amazing my only complaint about that is... We wished there were more! Highly recommended!

Tom was very pleasant to visit with and helpful. The home has lots of character, beautiful yard and entertaining pets. Our room was clean and comfortable. The floors were creaky and we did hear the guests above us moving around. It didn't disturb us, but something to consider if you are a light sleeper. Were disappointed to only have a continental breakfast. It was a nice breakfast but not what we expected from a B&B at this price point.
4.8 on July 08, 2014
Location was ideal for visiting Lake County attractions. Owners were friendly and helpful on giving directions and suggestions on where to eat. The mix of visitors made a lively breakfast conversation.

You'd not ask for better host at this B&B. The scones are the best. An area I'd improve is breakfast. I can't eat sausage & thought it'd be substituted but it wasn't. Disappointing. Too much sweets also. Bad for diabetic. Make your needs known and this will help. If peppers are something you dislike list it so the owners know. Also let them know you are a diabetic and can't eat the wonderfully sweet french toast because it is bad for you. The room was wonderful but all but one room you have to climb stairs. Find out which one is on the first floor if you need this due to physical limitations. The rooms were quiet also which I didn't expect. Very lovely decorations throughout and the host is willing to share places to eat and visit. I would definitely go again as I really enjoyed the time spent there.

Previous reviews were favorable so we decided to give it a try. Boy, were we impressed. The room was great and had a very private feel. Fitzgerald's have snacks and drinks in the room and ask for a donation in return - that was a nice touch. Breakfast was great - scones lived up to their reputation. Will definitely go back.
4.2 on July 03, 2014
The inn was beautiful inside and out; so many places to take pictures for memories. Breakfast scones (cranberry & white chocolate) were pleasing to the palate ;-) Company of the Fitzgeralds was sweet; plenty of suggestions on what to do, but left us to rest and relax. Dinner location paid off with a free slice of key lime pie because we were guests of the B&B. Didn't understand the build up of dust on ledges and surfaces in the bedroom and in the bathroom, but general cleanliness was good.

We booked a weekend at Fitzgerald's just to get away. What an experience! The house, including our room (Galway) is simply amazing. Tom makes an wonderful breakfast and both Tom and Debra are great to talk to and spend time with. We will be back again!
3.2 on June 28, 2014
The room was lovely and very comfortable bed, when I booked it it said private bath which we had but it was in the hallway, not as convenient as having it in your room. Only serve continental breakfast during the week, other bed and breakfast we have stayed in have served a full breakfast during the week. I can have cereal at home so that was disappointing that is one of the reasons we choose B&B when vacationing to have a nice breakfast. Owners are nice and personable, respect your privacy and it has a nice backyard with cute ducks.

This is one of our favorite bed and breakfasts and we loved the area, which had plenty to do including shopping for antiques and flea markets, wine tasting, great restaurants and seeing the lake. The food and service was excellent!

Wonderful place to stay and Debra and Tom were very helpful in pointing us in the right direction. Would definitely stay here again if we had the chance.

I spent two nights here and came across the most comfortable bed I have ever slept in. The inn has many charming attributes including Mr. Moose staring down at you in the living room, a gorgeous chandelier hanging from the beamed ceiling, rooms filled with Royal Dalton jugs, bowls of candies everywhere, Irish music and Wiggles and Waddles, the two resident ducks. Tom was amiable and engaging and I got the opportunity to have a couple of lengthy chats with him. My favorite feature of the house is the back porch where I spent several hours, reading while sipping hot tea. The continental breakfast includes a scone, fruit, juice, coffee, cereals and granola bars although yogurt was also offered. My only disappointment was that more scones weren't provided. They were delicious and I could've eaten a half a dozen of them. I would also like to point out that the inn is directly in front of a fire station although I did not find this disruptive. I would definitely consider staying here again if I am in the area.

My wife and I very much enjoyed our stay at the B & B. We certainly will stay there again when visiting the area.

We had a wonderful 3 day stay. Breakfast was great. Lovely home and grounds. Would certainly stay there again if ever in the area.
4.2 on March 22, 2014
Lori, our innkeeper (not the owner) is very pleasant and outstanding in the kitchen. With the weather what it was (cold), a fire in the fireplace would have been a nice, home like touch. The reservation website was unforgiving, requiring a two day weekend stay; and although we were, my in-laws were not able to. The owner was not able to accommodate a request by phone and were a bit rude to them. So we were one short. Sad...

Tom and Debra are wonderful hosts. We desired to check in very early and they were able to accommodate us with a smile! The breakfasts were fantastic. Their home is beautifully decorated and the beds are comfortable! We will make a return trip soon! This is definitely a great place to stay!
5 on December 15, 2013
A beautiful home to stay in and enjoy. Tom was a great host, introducing himself as each of us entered and making sure each of the team new one another. The simple, continental breakfast was exactly what I wanted and was more than adequate. I would definitely recommend it to my friends and family.

I must add that the innkeepers were in Cambodia and this seems to have made a difference in the experience, as I was told by other guests who had stayed before and were hoping for the same. They were disappointed the owners weren't there.

Room was amazing. The Fitzgeralds were away so they had an Inn sitter but service was good as well as breakfast and the company we had. Great town, easy acess to highway/ City but still an escape.

I think that the owners could do more to help the guest enjoy the full B & B experience by encouraging everyone to get together for example, an afternoon tea or wine & cheese as well as meeting in the evening.

The innkeepers were friendly and informative. Cookies and tea in the afternoon would have been a nice touch. The room we stayed in the private bathroom was in the public hall. Overall good value.

Staying at Fitzgerald's is exactly what I would expect of any Irish B&B. Every detail was perfect, from the immaculate housekeeping to the charming decor. The breakfast was excellent and the company was warm and friendly. A great place to stay, we'll do it again.

Overall, the place was very clean and nicely decorated. Both Tom and Debra were very congenial and we would recommend staying there, .We did not want to rate DINING since we did not eat there, but we had to select a rating, so we rated it a 3, We were visiting relatives and ate with them.. We rated ROOMS a 3 since our room was not air conditioned and we are from Las Vegas and used to a very low humidity. We had to open the windows to get a cool evening breeze, and with the high humidity, sleeping was a little uncomfortable. SERVICE was outstanding. We rated VALUE a 3 only because of the air conditioning.. On the morning that we checked out we did request a very limited breakfast, which was provided. We would stay there again. .
Thank you for taking the time to post a review. Our home has central air conditioning. However, when the evening temperatures start dropping we turn the air conditioning off because most people prefer the fresh air. I hope that when you return you will tell us your preference.

Some plumbing work needs to be done in the 3rd floor unit. Upgrade the bath rugs and provide more than one towel each, or at least two fluffy towels. Bed very comfy. A little pricey for the accommodations.
4.4 on September 29, 2013
The Fitzgeralds do an amazing job in making their home your home for the duration of your stay. They have taken an unusual house and made it into a place you want to return at the end of the day. Their hospitality is warm and friendly, and the atmosphere is inviting. Too bad I was dieting: Tom is apparently an outstanding cook, but I couldn't partake of his talents. Nonetheless, the food was very good and the conversation with them was always interesting. Highly recommended.

Spacious and tidy rooms with hints of Ireland throughout. Private bath was nice. Tom and Debra were gracious hosts and prepared tasty breakfasts of large portion sizes. The rooms were very quiet, and the garden in the back yard was charming. While it did not feel like we were near the city, downtown Painesville was only a short walk away. We will definitely return for another stay!

We went with the two night deluxe package in the Bushmills room. It was a hike up some stairs, but totally worth it. The gift certificate was for the most wonderful restaurant called Bistro 70 and most of it was paid for. Was surprised to find the fridge stocked for us. The room itself was beautiful and cozy. All in all, a great stay!
4.8 on August 26, 2013
Lovely home with unique architecture and beautifully decorated with Irish collectibles including Waterford crystal. Breakfasts were delicious with fresh fruit, just baked scones, and a creative breakfast main course. We were encouraged to use the yard which was lush and very well cared for! Owners friendly and interested in our activities without being intrusive.

My husband and I stayed at Fitzgerald's Bed and Breakfast on 08/11/13-08/12/13. It was very easy to reserve our room, check in, and check out. The house was very clean and neatly decorated. The room was very comfortable and the service was outstanding. We have nothing negative to say. It truely made our honeymoon even more special. :-) Oh and the homemade scones were to die for!

Breakfast was ok but could have used more options for protein.

Fitzgerald's B&B is a wonderful place to stay. A comfortable and relaxing B&B that includes all the comforts that one would expect to find at home plus more! The large bedroom (Galway) we stayed in was tastefully furnished, had a comfy queen sized bed, TV, WIFI, DVD player as well as an extra large ensuite bathroom with a Jacuzzi tub! The bathroom also had a large closet to hang clothes in, as well as an iron and iron board (which I didn't use). Plus, there is a small "kitchen" area at the entrance with cupboards, dishes, a microwave and small refrigerator! The counter has a plug which made finding a place to charge cell phone and iPad very easy and convenient. The continental breakfast was wonderful - fresh home made scone, fresh fruit, choice of cereal or cereal bars, yogurt, OJ and coffee - which was quite good! On top of it all, the hosts are wonderful, friendly and very helpful! A lovely place to stay :))

The perfect place to crash long term. Stayed 10 days while in the area for my daughter’s wedding. It felt like being home, with all the amenities, comforts, spoils and toys that make one’s life so comfortable at times. Debra and Tom are the consummate hosts - Debra charming, accommodating, helpful, kind, while Tom will probably turn into a best friend within the first 5 minutes. He gets up early, knows the noises of the house, knows when you come down in the morning, long before breakfast, desperate for 2 mugs of coffee (both for yourself, of course) and has them ready and awaiting you. He bakes some mean scones that brighten your day even when you decided to be grumpy, cooks up lovely breakfasts and is pretty much present all day for help, suggestions, directions, etc. A word about Sophie. She is like the sister you never had. Discretely comes behind you and fixes, cleans, accommodates any whim you have for your room or bathroom, always smiley and happy, patiently listens to you if you need to get things off your chest, leaves you an encouraging note when you break your mirror into smithereens, telling you it’s a new beginning, and so on. The entire Fitzgerald’s was for me just what I needed at a time of stress, hurriedness, running between appointments, and in the end, willing participants in my wedding “afterglow”. Well done everyone! Thank you. IP - Colorado

The ambience was wonderful. Proprietors were very friendly and helpful. Wonderful place to relax, enjoy the quiet (except for the creaky stairs) and take advantage of the peacefulness of the back porch. We plan on staying again in the future.

The owners were out of town but our hosts were wonderful! The house is beautiful and cozy. We really enjoyed the back yard, watching the birds, squirrels and visiting with the ducks! The only downside was the house was full and not at all sound proof, one of the guests ran their bathroom fan ALL night long, which needed repaired as it rattled the wall and was very loud.
5 on May 22, 2013
We arrived to a room with roses, chilled champagne, cheese tray and snack basket. We also received two lovely robes. The room was large and the jet tub was very relaxing. The town was lovely and everything was within walking distance from the Fitzgerald's BB. The scones were out of this world delicious. I highly recommend the Fitzgerald’s B&B!
5 on May 15, 2013
Every time we visit Fitzgerald's Irish B&B we have a wonderful time. The house is beautiful and immaculately maintained. The atmosphere is inviting and welcoming and the hospitality unmatched. The breakfasts are delicious, especially the homemade scones. You feel like you have escaped to the Irish countryside.
5 on May 01, 2013
Debra and Tom are truly hospitable hosts willing to offer sightseeing suggestions (much appreciated!). They possess a passion about their lovely home and rightly so. We stayed in the spacious and beautifully decorated Mayo room which perfectly met our needs. If this were not enough reason to go back again, Tom's talent in the kitchen is impressive especially his delicious scones!

My wife and I drove to northeast Ohio to visit relatives and found this bed and breakfast on line. It was a very charming bed and breakfast with great atmosphere. The room was great and the bed and breakfast was centrally located near the square of Painesville which is a short driving distance to a wide variety of dining and shopping selections. Our first choice for any future return stays in the area.

Our visit was great, I wished I would have had more time to explore the beautiful house. I came to Painesville for a quick visit and choose to stay at Fitzgerald's because of its fine reputation and convenient location. The hosts were so accomodating, regretfully we arrived far after the check in time - nonetheless, we called ahead and our late arrival was graciously accomodated! The owners are so nice and gracious and made us feel at home. Lovely place, would jump at the opportunity to stay there again.

Our stay at Fitzgerald's certainly added to our weekend get-a-way. Such a charming and relaxing stay, and we couldn't have asked for better hosts.

If your sick and tired of being lonely on the road, but want your privacy - this is the place to stay! The owners, Debra and Tom Fitzgerald are great Inn Keepers without hovering over your every move. They have a sense of when you want to have some conversation and when you don't. That is a true gift of an Inn Keeper. I am on my 9th day here for business, and have enjoyed the privacy on work nights and the incredible Breakfasts on the weekends home cooked by Tom and Debra. Beautiful house with a great mix of antiques and just plain comfortable furnishings. I will be back every time I work this area if its with in Driving Distance! On the weekends and nights I am free to roam the downtown area less than a block from the Inn which includes a wine bar, Great authentic Mexican restaurant, local bar all with incredible, and sandwich shops! Churches on every corner and some of the nicest people you would ever want to meet!

We stayed at Fitzgerald's for an Irish-themed anniversary getaway. Really nice home - beautiful architecture, gorgeous landscaping, and very well decorated inside. The owners were gone the weekend we were there, but their friend and neighbor Helen did a splendid job of taking care of us (and MAN, can she COOK!). We shared the home with three other couples who were staying as well. We had wonderful conversation and made new friends around an ample dining table over breakfast. The home is well located with many enjoyable things to visit, see, and do in a 20 mile radius. Overall, it was quite enjoyable. The biggest negative for us was squeaky wooden floors. I mean VERY squeaky. We were on the 3rd (top) floor. There's only one room up there. I can't imagine how loud it might have been to those staying below us. The rooms have obviously been updated, and the wood on the floors is visibly in good condition, so I can't imagine why this hasn't been addressed. We live in an older home with squeaky floors, but because they are carpeted it is less of an issue. And we would expect to stay in a squeak-free place when our weekend away costs almost as we pay for a month's rent. [Don't get me wrong - I think our package was priced right. Price isn't my focus here]. There were a few other issues - our shower stall door (very nice shower and whirlpool tub!) is very difficult to close - the door needs adjusted, should be an easy fix. And the embroidered keepsake robes (which were part of our premium package) are advertised as "think, luxurious" but they aren't. They are thin terrycloth, like a cheap bath towel, and seem small-ish. I am of average weight; for someone large I'm sure they would be even less adequate. My robe at home, which I purchased for $20, is thicker and more luxurious than these. Don't let these few negatives deter you, though. Fitzgerald's really is a nice place and we enjoyed our stay. Perhaps they can correct these issues to make it perfect!
5 on September 24, 2012
Everything was great! We were greeted warmly, and showed around their home. Breakfast was first rate! Have a great time just sitting in the back yard watching their pet ducks and the squirrels in the trees while waiting for breakfast. This was our first B&B, and because of the experience, won't be the last! Karen and John S.

Everything was wonderful at Fitzgerald's! My husband and I had a wonderful time. Debra and Tom are amazing hosts and they truly make you feel at home and welcome. We have stayed at many bed and breakfasts throughout the state, and this definately was one of our favorite! The only thing that cause a minor issue was the beautiful hardwood floors throughout the inn were a bit noisy, and you had to be quiet while walking in late so you don't disturb the other guests. But overall I give this inn 5 stars! Absolutely a wonderful place!
5 on July 25, 2012
Debra and Tom are wonderful hosts and their home is really lovely. We would stay again. Within walking distance of many restaurants and less than 3 miles to Mentor Headlands.

This place is a real gem. It's beautifully decorated and at the perfect location to take advantage of what Painesville and the beach have to offer.

During an impromptu trip to Headlands Beach we decided to try staying at a bed and breakfast in lieu of our regular hotel of choice. It was the first time going to a B&B for both of us so were a little unsure if we would like the experience. Fitzerald's Irish B&B was fantastic! They exceeded our expectations in every way from the decor and presentation of the house to the friendliness of the hosts. We will definitely chose to Fitzgerald's again when in the area and will also look to stay at other B&B's in our other travels.

Fitzgerald's Irish B & B is a wonderful place to stay. The hosts are cordial and welcoming. The house is charming, immaculate, and quiet. The grounds are beautiful and well-maintained. We stayed on a week night, so there was only continental breakfast, rather than a full breakfast, but everything was great.
4.6 on June 05, 2012
Even though the owners were on a tour of the Danube, the house sitters they had watching over the guests provided a most enjoyable experience. They provided home-cooked treats, such as coconut bread and blueberry upside down cake, to end their delicious breakfasts. The rooms were even nicer than they appeared to be on the web-site. The inn provided listings of local attractions along with directions. The only complaint was that we did not know about Painesville's summer season Friday night Cruise-ins at the town center and ran out of film.

Great little B&B. Very knowledgeable hosts. Room was wonderful and romantic. Would highly recommend.
5 on May 01, 2012
We felt at ease, as though in our own home. Tom & Debra have a quaint, serene, exceedingly clean and well thought out B & B. The Mayo room was spacious, the bed very comfortable complete with down duvet. We will definitely stay here again !

It was quite and relaxing. I cannot wait to visit again. The breakfast was terrific and the scones were to die for. I would recommend Fitzgerald's Bed & Breakfast to everyone.

The owners where very friendly and accommodating. We were the only people staying that might. They gave us ideas for dinner in the area. The room was nice and clean. The bed was extremely comfortable.

We had a great time at the B&B! It only has hour guest rooms so you still have an at-home experience. The hosts were outstanding & breakfast was excellent. We'll be back!

Breakfast table set with Belleek China and a good verity of food to choose from. The building made you feel like you were in Ireland. There was a good choice of reading material, viewing material or listening pleasure. Debra was a great help with ideas of places to go for entertainment or eating.

A charming, romantic, quaint and unique bed & breakfast... hardwood floors, beautiful rugs, very clean room, pleasant and professional service, soft and comfortable bed and very tasty breakfast served with homemade "scones", orange juice and choice of coffee or hot tea to wake you up along with music playing in the background. The grandfather clock, living room fireplace and cute lace curtains were a few of my favorites not to mention the upstairs room with a jacuzzi tub and big glass shower! Thank you for sharing your home with us as a bed & breakfast for anyone to enjoy for a special get-away! Our package included goodies, sparkling grape juice of our choice and two white cotton bath robes to take home! There was a beautiful vase of flowers in our room! :)

Nice large room, friendly hosts, great service and suggestions of local sites. Must visit!!
4.4 on November 11, 2011
Home was immaculate, comfortable, welcoming. Rooms were the same. My husband & I had more than enough space in our room & bathroom. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay, except for the Grandfather Clocks that chimed every 15 minutes all throughout the night. Not being used to them, they did keep me awake for a good portion of the night our 1st night but the 2nd night I barely heard them. Breakfast was delicious both mornings. We didn't "need" or "want" for anything. Would love to visit again.

My Wife and I spent a very relaxing night. Service and Suite were excellant
4.6 on November 02, 2011
First time at a BnB and we were made to feel right at home in the Bushmills room. Tom and Debra took the time to show us around their home and helped us with local restaraunts. Very close to many wineries and historic covered bridges. Definitely so much better than staying at a hotel.
4.4 on October 29, 2011
THis place looks good, and is great. Owners were great to visit with. The breakfast during the week is very light. On the weekend it is a great Irish breakfast but not so Mon -Thursday
4.4 on October 24, 2011
We were greeted by Deb when we arrived. She showed us the house and answered our questions concerning dining and wineries. Our room was very comfortable. Bistro 70 and Brennan's were excellent choices for dining. Missed Tom's great culinary event since we were there during the week so we'll have to visit again. A very enjoyable stay. Thanks
5 on October 19, 2011
Fitzgerald's was both our first bed and breakfast and by far the best vacation stay we have ever experienced, outdistancing even the luxury resort suite at our honeymoon. The service is beyond first-rate, being both professional and personal, and the full breakfast served on weekends is to die for (especially the homemade scones). We will definitely go back again!
5 on September 23, 2011
This was our first time staying at a bed and breakfast and we were not disappointed, the room was clean, the food was GREAT and the hospitality was OUTSTANDING!! We will definitely be coming back, thank you Tom and Debbie for an very memorable weekend!!
4.4 on September 22, 2011
It was our first time staying at a b & b and the Fitzgerald's made it a very pleasant time. From the first moment rolling down the cobblestone road to seeing the beautiful home and then being greeted by their ducks, what a nice experience. We did not meet the Fitzgerald's at check it however were awoken the next morning by the inviting smell of what turned out to be one of the best breakfasts we've enjoyed in a long time. We thoroughly enjoyed the entire breakfast and the service that came with it was top notch, did not lift a finger, very classy. The Fitzgerald's made our first experience the absolute best, no complains what so ever only wonderful surprises, thank you from the bottom of our hearts.
4.6 on September 19, 2011
We were greeted at the door with a bright smile and congratulations for our ten year anniversary by Debra. More than helpful with places close by and things to see. Reservations were made for us at Bistro 70 for a romantic dinner and needless to say we didn't have to worry about a thing. Roses, chocolate and chilled champagne in the room. Breakfast ready for a great start to all our little adventures and best of all an inviting house to come home to at the end of the day. I could never have dreamed of such sweet and loving souls as Debra and Tom's nor the fantastic place they run. If you are looking for a place to stay this is it hands down.

Two night stay. Traveled with another couple. One couple in the Mayo Room and one in the Dublin Room.
5 on September 03, 2011
My wife and I needed a get-a-way weekend and decided to give Fitzgerald's a go. Tom and Debra are great hosts and were attentive to our every need. Tom makes a great breakfast, especially the scones!
5 on August 05, 2011
My wife and I stayed three nights at Fitzgerald's Irish B&B. It was relaxing and very refreshing. The house is stunning. And the Hosts, Debra and Tom, were so gracious and helpful. We especially enjoyed sitting in the back yard sipping local wine. We really expect to be visiting the Fitzgeralds again.
3.2 on July 27, 2011
Lovely inn in ideal lake county location. Only concern is that the proprieters are not warm and welcoming as has been my previous experiences with B&Bs. Although Debra and Tom were nice and responsive to questions and requests, staying in their home feels like the B&B is run for profit as a business rather than the usual feeling of being a very welcome guest in a home.
4.4 on July 18, 2011
This was a great place to get away in North East Ohio for the day's when you can't get to Ireland. After 14 trips to Ireland this B & B ranks right up with the best of the Emerald Isle. All the best, Danny O
3.2 on July 18, 2011
This would be a very great house to book for 4-8 people wanting to spend an evening together. The house provides lovely public space and Bistro 70 just a short walk away provides an amazing evening meal.
4.6 on July 17, 2011
Beautiful rooms and grounds were appreciated. Hosts made you feel very welcome.Breakfast was a real treat. chocolate everywhere and we love chocolate. Close to many interesting areas. was very peaceful at the residence.
4.8 on July 13, 2011
Unexpected, the fact we would stay there and more unexpected how good and nice it was. Not only the room, but also the people! Worth a recommendation!
4.4 on July 11, 2011
We drive by this area every year to go to the finger lakes area in New York. We always said that we would have to stop sometime. We are very glad we did. It was a beautiful B&B, and it was a nice stop on the way home. We especially enjoyed our mornings with Wiggles and Waddles!
5 on July 04, 2011
The most exquisite breakfast you will ever find. Terrific service and hospitality. We will most definitely be back. Nice job Debra and Tom.
3.0 on June 20, 2011
The inn is dated but well maintained. Our room was spacious and comfortable, like those in many inns. Breakfast was very good. Be prepared to be chilly with the a/c as the innkeeper won't allow the windows to be open. Too bad, because the weather was just right. All in all it is what one would expect from such a place.
4.0 on June 15, 2011
My wife and I thoroughly enjoyed our stay there. The accomodations were great and the hospitality of the owners was outstanding. One of the reasons we picked this location was its proximity to the local wineries. It was very convenient. We would definitely stay there again.
4.4 on June 03, 2011
We wanted a nice B&B to stop at on our driving trip to New York and this was it. We enjoyed it so much we decided to also stop there on our return trip. Debra and Tom made us feel very welcome. They gave us excellent tips for dinner and the continental breakfast served (our weekday stay) was far better than the usual you might find. The rooms are clean, neat and beautifully restored. The house and grounds are unique and also painstakingly restored.
5 on May 31, 2011
Very late arrival, for which our hosts were trustfully accommodating; my wife didn't get to see any of the charming facility except the path to our room. When we arose next morning, she was thrilled and charmed by the lovely yet warmly inviting common space. She had already been blessed by a brief soak in a luxurious tub, followed by a night's comfortable sleep in a quiet, perfectly-soft bed situated in an opulent suite. Anything we can say will be an understatement. We were thrilled; we plan to return for special occasions. Just staying there again will be a special occasion.
5 on May 05, 2011
This house was awe-inspiring. There is so much attention to detail with beautiful woodwork and very well decorated rooms. The food was something you would see and eat in a fine gourmet restaurant in NYC! Highly Recommended!
5 on April 23, 2011
We had a wonderful time with the Fitzgerald's. The hospitality is second to none and the rooms are immaculate. This is the BEST value B&B we have ever found and we will be returning.
5 on April 01, 2011
This is our 5th stay in the Fitzgerald's Irish B&B while we visit local family. We have stayed in several different rooms and found each one very pleasant and inviting. We like the Dublin room the best!! Be sure to allow yourself time to sit and enjoy the morning fresh scones and coffee with other guests. Bring a good book to sit,read and relax in the fireplace room downstairs. Debra and Tom are wonderful Innkeepers and continually ask if your stay is going well and if they can do anything to assist you. Carol and Mike Laituri - California

Recently stayed a Sunday night at Fitzgeralds. Beautiful home, lovely room. Clean. Debra & Tom were lovely to talk to and made some wonderful suggestions for dining and things to do in the area.
5 on December 31, 2010
Excellent stay. Owners greeted us upon arrival and gave us a tour of the whole house. Excellenct breakfast and overall hospitality. Will stay there any time we visit the area.
4.4 on December 23, 2010
We very much enjoyed our stay at Fitzgerald's. The rooms are large and comfortable, the breakfasts are delicious, and Debra and Tom are lovely hosts. Thanks!

Deb and Tom were very gracious hosts and they have a beautiful home. Tom's scones were outstanding. Would highly recommend.
4.8 on December 07, 2010
Our stay was beautiful in a well-ordered & lovely home. The ambience was marvelous; breakfast with delicious scones & coffee & Guinness available!
3.8 on November 24, 2010
The Fitzgerald's were extremely easy to get along with and have a beautiful home. Painesville is a small town but we were able to find several places to go within walking distance. They were gracious hosts and my husband and I enjoyed our time there.
4.6 on November 17, 2010
We were absolutely delighted with this cozy B&B in Painesville, OH. The proprietors couldn't have been better hosts, and the morning breakfast was delicious (even gave out their recipe for Creme Brule French Toast). The house is spacious and quaint at the same time; lovely decor and very homey. Our room was well decorated, and the bed was extremely comfortable. The reason we gave 4 stars instead of 5 for the room itself was because our bathroom was not directly connected to the room so we had to throw on a robe to walk down the hall. HOWEVER, they provided robes for us, so it certainly wasn't a deal breaker (and the higher-end rooms have adjoining bathrooms). We definitely plan to stay with the Fitzgerald's again in the future. The experience was absolutely lovely!
4.6 on November 14, 2010
We had a very relaxing and enjoyable stay at Fitzgerald's. Debra and Tom were very gracious hosts and went out of their way to ensure that our stay was great. We will return! And Tom's scones were delicious.
5 on November 08, 2010
The Innkeepers Debbie and Tom made the weekend of 11/5-11/7 a most relaxing and enjoyable break from the rat race. Breakfasts were marvelous, the beds were very comfortable, and we felt right at home. Doug and Faye
3.8 on October 18, 2010
WE really enjoyed the Galway room. The bathroom was absolutely wonderful. It was very large with a nice jacuzzi tub and shower. We especially liked the double sinks. Having a microwave and refrigerator in the room was very convenient also. Although we didn't see too much of Tom, he seemed very nice and we enjoyed his scones. Debra was a delight and we really enjoyed talking with her.
4.4 on October 07, 2010
We had a very relaxing stay at Fitzgerald's. A beautiful home and grounds, wonderful innkeeper, and tasty breakfast. We would go back again.
4.2 on September 27, 2010
Tom and Debra are terrific! The B&B is is less stuffy than some tend to be. You walk in the back door which is near a beautiful garden and immediately feel like you are at home. My husband and I are planning a trip to Ireland and Scotland next summer and Debra really helped us so that our trip will go well. Plus, the scones are, in a word, FABULOUS! We would absolutely stay there again. For us, the typical Victorian B&B isn't our style, but Fitzgerald's certainly was.
5 on September 26, 2010
Traveling across country, tired from the road, we made our reservation hoping it would be comparable to other places we have stayed. What a wonderful surprise. Delightful place, most comfortable bed we have ever been in, and delicious scones for breakfast. I hope to return some time for more than just one night. Also have a really charming garden to sit in.
4.2 on August 27, 2010
My husband & I stayed here while celebrating our first anniversary. We had been to B&Bs before, and this experience was the best. The Bushmill room was lovely and private (on the 3rd floor by itself) and we enjoyed relaxing inside the rest of the house as well and admiring the decor and wonderful restoration job they did in renovating. The outside garden and grounds were beautiful as well. We came during the beginning of the week, so we probably had a different experience then most visitors who come on weekends and holidays, but we enjoyed the quiet and privacy. Painesville is also a cute little town - as we'd already planned activities in nearby towns we didn't explore it much, but there's a lot of restaurants to chose from on Mentor Ave alone. Obviously I've not stayed in the other rooms, but from all appearances Fitzgerald's offers you unique and beautifully furnished rooms at an excellent price, and overall has a much pleasanter and crisp feel than a lot of B&B's out there that tend to feel too staid or outdated. I suppose it depends on your taste, but you won't regret it if you decide to stay here!
4.4 on August 25, 2010
This is a wonderful place. Debra was very accomodating and friendly. This was my first b&b experience. Sorry I waited so long. We will definitely be back.
4.4 on August 23, 2010
Our first time in a bed & breakfast - wonderfully welcoming owners!
5 on August 22, 2010
Tom and Debra are very gracious. This B&B is beautiful inside and outside. The breakfasts were wonderful. We are looking forward to many return visits !
5 on August 17, 2010
The room was amazing. The owners were very nice and helpful. I would definitely recommend this to anyone.
5 on June 06, 2010
Tom and Debra are one of kind. Their home is in amazing condition with unique attention to detail. Tom made a delicious breakfast every morning, and they were more than helpful with planning dinner/explorations. Thanks again!!!
5 on December 16, 2009
The innkeepers gave us the keys not only to a elegant irish B&B, but the keys to a romantic, comforting and peaceful time. Fulfilled our hearts' and minds' desires.
5 on August 13, 2009
We had a great weekend. the B&B is beautiful and the breakfasts were wonderful. Everything was clean and done well.
5 on July 13, 2009
My wife and I started staying a B&Bs about 10 years ago. Tom and Debra have set the benchmark that we will use to rate all other B&Bs. We first stayed in this fantastic B&B in 2004 while returning to Painesville to visit family. It is now our annual destination having just returned from a family reunion this past weekend. Great atmosphere, rooms, hospitality and homemade, gourmet breakfasts (you won't find a better scone anywhere, thanks Tom!). We can also vouch for their tours as we joined them for a "once in a lifetime" dream vacation to Ireland in 2006. We are planning to join them for another trip again next year.
5 on June 11, 2009
We left our home in Tybee Island, Georgia and flew north to the shores of Lake Erie. Duty called, but it turned into one of the best weekends we ever enjoyed. Fitzgerald's had a lot to do with it!
5 on March 19, 2009
Friendly, clean, peaceful. This is our 8th B&B and our favorite!
5 on March 16, 2009
My husband and I received a gift card for a one night stay at Fitzgerald's. So we ended up booking a two night stay for a romantic weekend getaway. This place is MAGICAL. We will be back every year now thanks to Debra and Tom's hospitality! (and food)
4.4 on February 27, 2009
Very interesting and beautiful Irish replica of B&B. Hosts very nice and friendly!
4.2 on February 04, 2009
This is a jewel of a place. Like seeing into luxury of the best Irish tones. Close to Cleveland area; easy to get to on snowy nights. Worth every penny!
5 on December 18, 2008
Outstanding all the way!! It's our Honeymoon and we just found a new hobby...finding and staying at B&B's!!
5 on December 01, 2008
The wineries in the area are great. A charming B&B. This was our 1st experience at a B&B, and we loved it! The room and inn were spacious and clean. The breakfasts were excellent! Highly recommend!
4.8 on November 17, 2008
The Innkeepers, Debra and Tom, were so accommodating and kind. We really felt at home, welcome, and pampered. We highly recommend it.
4.8 on November 12, 2008
My husband and I spent two nights in the Dublin room while attending a family event in Painesville. The inn is charming, housing a lovely collection of Royal Daultons and Waterford. Our hosts were gracious and we were especially grateful that they accommodated our special dietary needs. For about the same price as a chain motel, we had a clean, warm, elegant atmosphere and were served a delicious breakfast. The snow was even brushed off of our car for us in the morning! Our only complaint was a squeaky door.
3.8 on October 14, 2008
This warm, inviting inn gives you a taste of Ireland. You are invited to make the inn your home during your stay. A digital picture frame located in the kitchen gives a slideshow of the host couple's many trips to Ireland. A relaxing trip to Ireland here in Ohio!
5 on May 11, 2008
Fitzgerald's Irish Bed & Breakfast was fabulous! The owners were very friendly, the place was immaculately clean, and the breakfast were wonderful. I've never had scones this good! We had a wonderful weekend at this B&B and recommend it to anyone looking for a romantic getaway.
5 on August 27, 2007
My husband and I were thrilled with this B&B. We have stayed at over 25 B&Bs and this is one of the best. Everything was spotless! Our room was very large, much bigger than the picture shows it. We loved his homemade scones for breakfast, the best I ever tasted! Debra and Tom were very hospitable and made us feel right at home. This B&B is a fabulous value, we stayed 2 nights for a total price of $190.

A few years ago, my wife and I walked from our house over to Fitzgeral's for a second honeymoon. While we didn't get far away from home, we had always been intrigued by the beautiful building. The exterior is very well kept as is the interior. We enjoyed the top room in the house overlooking the large backyard. The room came with a newly refinished bathroom, a nice bed, television, and stocked refrigerator. And if more entertainment was desired a separate room with a giant screen television was available in the lower level. Overall, it was a nice experience and very picturesque.
