Incredible and magical place! Ann Marie, Mark and Robin could not have been better hosts. My husband and I stayed in the stone room where a heated blanket warmed us from a day of traveling. We fed a baby lamb and were warmly greated by their dog, Bruce. This is a must see. We thoroughly enjoyed every minute we were...

Mark and Ann-Marie are absolute gems. My girlfriend and I were doing an 8 day tour across Ireland and were regrettable only at Lawcus Farm for one of those nights. Rolling in from Dublin rather late, Mark met us in the parking lot and took us inside and immediately gave us a personal opinion on how we would best enjoy...

Absolutely beautiful property, accommodations and lovely hosts. On a 2 week trip around Southern Ireland, staying at a new B&B each night I was pleasantly pleased to have chosen two nights with Ann Marie and Mark. They truly started out our trip exceeding our expectations and it was hard for anyone else to measure up! Thank you Ann Marie and...

The place is absolutely amazing. The food is great, the farm is enchanting, and the hosts are some of the friendliest, most interesting people you will meet. The nearby area also had some incredible gems of places to explore.

When you read the guidebooks, you may never get the prototypical Irish B&B experience, unless you come here. Ann Marie and Marc are what you always hoped in an inn owner team. Lovely endless conversation with warmth and care in every sentence. The food was terrific - even the "porridge" - and enough to make you skip lunch. The room...

We've been to Ireland many times over the years and always stay in B&Bs, preferring the comfort and easygoing feel of relaxing in a home to hotels or castles. The Lawcus farm is off the beaten path near Stonyford in Co. Killarney. The hosts, AnnMarie and Mark are incredible. Equal parts gracious and warm, ready with a story, tall tale,...

What an amazing experience we had here! The owners are so friendly and knowledgeable! They have maps and tips for you on the area. The breakfast was fantastic! The room was spacious and charming. My kids absolutely LOVED running around with all of the animals and getting to feed them and collect hen eggs the next morning. I wish we...

We just got home from a 3 night stay here in the Gold family suite. It was absolutely perfect and exceeded our expectations in every way. We stayed in the Gold family suite for 3 nights. Mark and Anne Marie were absolutely fantastic hosts. We loved exploring the farm. A lamb was born on the day we arrived and we...

We stayed at Lawcus Farm for the first two nights in Ireland and I can't think of a more perfect beginning for our Ireland adventures. We were there in August 2016. Our kids, ages 9 and 11, absolutely loved the animals and being able to feed them. They also met some other kids who were staying there. The owners are...

It is hard to post a review of Mark and Ann Marie's B & B when everyone else has pretty much summed it all up. This post is way past due as Dany and I had the pleasure of staying in the Stone Room this past June and July, prior to heading north to the Van Morrison concert in Belfast....
