This gem of an owner run hotel is the only Blue Book entry in County Limmerick. This was our second visit but will not be our last. The welcome is warm, the food is excellent and the rooms delightful. On the down side, wifi is patchy and there is little to do in the immediate vicinity. It is a great...

We had our wedding at the Mustard Seed in April 2015. We had a civil ceremony in the beautiful sun room (room for 35 guests) followed by a prosecco reception, meal (for 75 people) and music & dancing. The day was totally perfect in every way. We planned the day with John Edward, Breda and Dan who were extremely helpful,...

We went to the mustard seed for dinner and overnight stay. From the minute we arrived we were welcomed with open arms. The fire was lit. The tea and biscuits were served and we were able to sit back and relax! Our room was lovely with everything you need provided. Dinner was gorgeous and the waiter recommended a great wine....

We like to plan for our holidays, but don't like to book everything, leaving room for the unexpected adventure. The night we were passing through Adare, and going to the racing event in Limerick was one such night. We read a short review of the Mustard Seed and set out to find it. When we pulled up, we were met...

We just returned from our third visit to the Mustard Seed, and it never disappoints. A comfortable, gorgeously appointed Inn, with a wonderfully attentive staff. I felt completely at ease there from my very first visit, and love it so much, I keep going back year after year. And that is just the lodging! The restaurant is an experience unto...

We just returned home from over a week at the Mustard Seed at Echo Lodge and couldn't wait to write this review.

We arrived a bit early and were shown to a nice sitting room by Dan the Proprietor.
