    Historical Traveler Reviews Foxmount Country House Waterford

    It was okay

    from

    I also must say this was not a very child friendly place. We were traveling with a 16 month old child. I think the price was fair & the room was nice. The house was very clean & Margaret was very nice but noone was around during the day. We were trying to make a phone call and were pointed in the direction of a pay phone we had no idea how to use and the husband claimed he didn't either. Thje breakfast was very good. The grounds were pretty but I was very disapointed in the condition of the farm and the animals. They didn't seem well cared for at all. I had been really looking forward to showing our daughter the animals but the smell and the bugs were overwhelming.

    Agree with the last review

    from

    We were thoroughly disappointed as well with our trip this past summer. I hesitated to say anything, but based on the last review, wish to add to it. We expected the hosts to be friendly with the children - not so. They practically disappeared on us and did nothing to make us feel at home.

    Liked it with reservations

    from

    We would agree with most of what the other reviewers say - charming house, gracious host etc. We particularly appreciated the fact that she laid on an early breakfast for us when we had to set off early for the boat. However, there are drawbacks - it's not in Waterford and the traffic in and out of town is a real pain. Taxi fares to and from the city soon add up. We also felt that the decor and facilities (eg shower) were a little basic given that the price is equal to waterford city centre hotels. This is a charming homely B&B but not a small hotel in quality.

    Favorite B & B!

    from

    My family and I travelled to Ireland (8 of us) and all of us absolutely loved Foxmount. Rooms were spacious, wonderfully decorated, very comfortable. The house itself was very nice, the host, Margaret Kent, very warm and welcoming. We missed signing up for dinner and really wish we would have. Breakfast was fantastic, the best we had on our trip. She uses all homemade ingredients, from the jams to the scones and o.j. (which is fresh squeezed) We only stayed one night, but should have stayed longer. Great pub under bridge in within walking distance (serves food till 9:00 pm, a rariety in the countryside in Ireland) Highly recommend!

    Loved Foxmount

    from

    Foxmount was beautiful!!! The room was spacious and the bed was the most comfortable we'd slept on our entire 2 week trip. Margaret was a very gracious host, from our tea and muffins in front of the fireplace in the drawing room to our full Irish Breakfast. What a lovely home the Kents have! We will definately go back with our children in March 05.

    Marvelously romantic

    from

    Foxmount was a marvelous one night stay for my boyfriend and I. We will definitely stay there longer the next time around, but considering this past trip was our first, we were extremely lucky to have found this beautiful home. Mrs. Kent cooks a very sumptuous breakfast; there is even muesli with whiskey! We even got to tour parts of the dairy farm and meet the darling livestock. I highly recommend Foxmount to all those traveling through Waterford!

    Wonderful B&B

    from

    We spent one night at the Foxmount and absolutely loved it. It was out of the city in the country and so quiet and peaceful. We enjoyed dinner on the night we arrived and it was fabulous. Breakfast was the same. Margaret is very hospitable and does all she can to make your stay comfortable.

    Foxount Farm was wonderful!

    from

    Foxmount Farm was our first stop after Dublin and we loved it. It is a very gracious home with immacualte rooms and a bountiful breakfast. It is a bit outside of Waterford, so it has a real country feeling, with cows and sheep on the hillside and a beautiful garden.

    Heavenly B&B in Waterford

    from

    Foxmount Farm is my favorite of all the places I stayed on my first trip to Ireland. I wish I had spent more than one night to really enjoy the ambience of this very special place. Ms. Kent is a delight and her meals were the most delicious we had in Ireland. I highly recommend the nightly gourmet dinner - and the Irish breakfast is truly an experience! I can't wait to go back and stay for several days!

    Beautiful countryside estate

    from

    We stayed at the Foxmount farm after reading good reviews on the internet. The far is located just east of Waterford in the woods.The house is beautiful and the host very gracious. However, unlike some of the hosts at other b&bs, she left us to our own devices, which is not necessarily a bad thing. It seemed the guests that arranged for dinner ahead of time, spent more time with the host.Breakfast was very good. The rooms were fantastic, each featuring a tub with brass furnishings. We were able to arrange for two rooms side by side, away from the other guests, offering a nice level of privacy not commonly found in B&B's. The room quality rated second only to the Greenmount House in Dingle in our experience of 6 B&B's in Ireland.Overall, highly recommended.

    ... the Sannahans began to leave Ireland and took refuge in Canada, USA and Australia.

    We enjoyed our time on this Isle – lots of pubs, restaurants and cafes, music, beer and potatoes galore. The scenery has been fantastic and the people welcoming and friendly. We were surprised and delighted by this lovely Island and could highly recommend a visit, if you haven’t yet been here.

    Best wishes,

    To Kilkenny we go

    Ok so last night I had to move rooms for some odd reason. Apparently they couldn't get me in the same room for all 7 nights. I am now on the ground floor which means the window is literally right beside the entrance and where all the taxis park. It can get a bit loud but I actually slept really great last night (even after all my naps). The kitchen and locker room are also right across from my room but I don't hear that since my bed is ...

    ... BBQ at Frank’s house so fondly.

    We had lunch outside the station with Kay’s brother and his wife before we headed off to visit Glendalough. As per usual I fell asleep on the way. Glendalough is beautiful, located Wicklow Mountains National Park in County Wicklow and known as the valley of two lakes. It is just beautiful and the air so fresh and clean – 100% opposite to London.

    ... into the town as it isn't busy. I see Aherne's Restaurant. We are having another of Friedrike's little "flourishes" which is Bailey's or Murphy's stout and cheese straws. This is her Irish "flourish". The last one was at Blair Castle when we all had whisky. We have an English one to look forward to. Most of the coastal towns are walled towns or cities and as we leave Youghal we pass through the city gates which is an archway under the clock tower. Youghal is on the Blackwater River. ...
