Enjoyed the ducks!

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 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.

The Perfect Retreat

5 on May 03, 2017

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!

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.

Felt like home.

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.

A great 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.
