My daughter and I spent 2 nights at Joy's Rockside House. Joan is a "joy" as a host and was very helpful in reccomending area sights to see. The house is beautiful and is the cleanest I've ever seen. Will definitely stay again when we return to Ireland! (Joan's pancakes are wonderful-make sure you try them) Leslie and Michelle Giresi...

I stayed with Rem and Joan Joy at Joy's Rockside House and loved it! Rem and Joan are both so friendly, it was a pleasure staying in their home. I arrived around 9am that morning (my flight landed at 7am and I drove right from the airport). It was no problem when I asked if I could park in their...

We were referred to Joy's Rockside House by the bureau of tourism and were thrilled with the recommendation! My sister, Mother, brothers and I truly enjoyed the accomodations and the hospitality of Joan and Rem. Its impeccably clean and literally the closest place you can stay in to the Castle. If you go, tell them the Hayes family sends their...

We stayed here recently on our trip to Ireland. When I emailed a few days ahead with our arrival time, Joy was more than willing to let us park and check in early. She also spent a lot of time showing us the best things to see in the city, and even gave us a map and good places to...

We called in advance to let them know we were arriving early. When we got there, at 11 am, we were told that we could not check in until after 2 pm. It was cold out and my wife asked if we could change clothes there. We were told no. She asked if we could use a bathroom. We were...

My husband and I stayed at this B&B after reading such great reviews on trip advisor. We were very disappointed. The location was as described right at the foot of the Rock, however the town is very small and it would be no problem to reach the Rock of Cashel from any location within town center area. We found the...

Joan Joy provides a wonderful place to stay and gracious, warm hospitality. The visitor to Cashel is perfectly placed to enjoy all there is to visit. The decor of the B&B is cheerful, the welcome is sincere, the breakfast is as good as reported by other reviewers and the home is spotless and clean. Joan offered us a choice of...

A very clean, simple place to stay for an overnight visit to the Rock of Cashel. Car parking is available, but a tight squeeze.

Stayed here for one night as we were attending a wedding at the nearby cashel palace hotel(6/7 mins walk away). The house was easy to find-it is LITERALLY steps away from the rock of cashel. Beautiful views from our room right onto the rock which was beauiful in the morning sunshine. Car parking available, yummy breakfast (unfortunately this is only...

We stayed overnight after landing in Shannon. Joy was great, sympathetic and extremely helpful. The kids loved the sheep (woolies) out back and the view was outstanding. I would go back just to stay here again.
