What a gem! We were so lucky to find this B@B and Anna. She was full of knowledge and helpful ideas, it was Anna that suggested to us rather than bring in our very full and heavy duffle bags up the stairs to our room to instead fill our smaller backpacks with the needs of the next few days.

Great hosts Anna and Michael McKeon. Knowledgable. Clean. Comfortble beds. Great and plentiful Irish breakfast. Don't miss St. Mels Cathedral with it's beautiful modern style restoration after the major fire of 2009. Also, have one of the great dinner's for the money at the Black Olive Restaurant. Don't forget to have a great local beer, St Mel's Brown Ale. "Here's... More

We stayed here for the second time a few days ago. Anna is a wonderful host. The rooms were spotless with nice linen and a large packet of shortbread biscuit. The breakfast was also very good, a hearty Irish breakfast, it kept us going all day long. We would definitely stay here again if in the area.

It is well situated on the main Dublin Road and around ten minutes walk into town. Our double en-suite room was spacious, clean and comfortable.

We stayed at Sancian for one night in May 2014 while visiting family in Longford. Anna's B&B is meticulously clean and comfortable, with a very comfortable bed with private bath. Having stayed at many B&Bs in Ireland, Sancian ranks up there with the best. Anna provides a delicious breakfast with many options, as well as valuable information about County Longford.... More
