Historical Traveler Reviews Foxmount Country House Waterford
It was okay
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
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
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!
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!
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.
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!
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!
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
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
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.

In Cashel we saw the rock of Cashel. It has a castle on it, the castle was under renovations and it was raining. After seeing the rock we walked to the main town and went to a cafe for lunch. The food was good – just a burger but it was nice. Then we walked back to the coach and drove for about 1hr. Here i listened to my ipod until we arrived in Kilkenny.
