"Fantastic , location, service and real comfort."
we have travelled extensively throughout the UK for this past 20 years and can honestly say that this is the most relaxing time we have ever spent in any hotel/bed&breakfast. This was Irish hospitality at it's very best. Everything about Serenity Country Escape was 5 star and more. We could honestly state that there was not one area where we could have […] the slightest cause for concern. Glenn catered for all our needs and was prepared to go that extra step to ensure our comfort. An absolute gentleman who we would recommend to anyone who felt in need of a real break and to relax in beautiful surroundings and extra pleasant service. An experience to be treasured and of course repeated. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
Response by Serenity Country Escape B&B Hi Colm and Mary! Thank you for the 5 stars and the wonderful review. We are so pleased you enjoyed your stay. Our unique concept of a relaxation retreat is very popular with couples who want to escape the city or the hustle and bustle of everyday life and we do go the extra mile to help you to relax and unwind. We are delighted that you found Serenity so peaceful! And once again, we are so sorry about the sad news you received while you were here with us. As promised, we have planted a conifer tree (from the plant fund money that you kindly left us) in your friend's memory. Do come back sometime and we can show it to you in the gardens. Warm regards, Glenn at Serenity
It was bit over the top in some respects. We did not like all the rules and framed notices everywhere. We had not been informed it has a relaxation theme before our arrival so it was a shock to have to remove our shoes etc. They do not take debit or credit cards so we had to pay in cash on arrival. The room and breakfast were excellent. The grounds […] are also very nice. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
Response by Serenity Country Escape B&B Hi Richard, thanks for taking the time to review Serenity Country Escape. We're sorry you found it over the top. As you mentioned, our email to you went into your spam folder so you did not receive our details in advance regarding the fact that we are a relaxation retreat and not a typical B&B. We ask guests to leave shoes outside bedrooms as we have white carpet in the bedrooms which we wish to keep hygienic and clean for all guests to enjoy, and to keep with the relaxation retreat theme. We are obliged to have emergency exit notices and fire procedure notices on the backs of doors for health & safety - I know they're not very pretty but safety is a paramount concern for us. We are of course happy to take card payments, but as advised in the email and text messages to you, we can only take card payments in advance via PayPal and (like most B&Bs) only cash on arrival. We are so pleased that you enjoyed the breakfast - it's not every B&B that has a former 5 Star Head Chef cooking breakfast! And we do work hard on the grounds here at Serenity and are glad you like them. We appreciate your feedback, and hope to welcome you to Serenity again.
"Toller letzter Stopp"
In diesem B&B kann man so richtig abschalten. Es liegt sehr ruhig, umgeben von Bäumen und einem sehr schönen, gepflegten Garten. Die Gastgeber sind sehr zuvorkommend und freundlich. Unser Zimmer war geräumig und sehr schön eingerichtet. Wir brauchten eigentlich "nur" eine Übernachtung vor dem endgültigen Reiseziel Dublin, daher waren wir noch überraschter […] als wir in dieses sehr (ent-)spannende Haus kamen. Wir würden das Serenity B&B auf jeden Fall weiterempfehlen. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review

"A real gem in the East of Ireland, a destination in itself"
08/12/13 BradyLadyEdinburgh Edinburgh
From the moment of arrival where we were welcomed by the very serene Glenn with a tour of the B&B we started to relax. After a welcoming cup of tea and a walk around the gardens we were in heaven and that feeling persisted for the 3 days of our stay. I can't recommend this B&B highly enough. The breakfast is top quality with a great selection to choose from, the rooms are comfortable and spotless and the finishing touches everywhere, like the numerous books, candles and trinkets, give the place a really personal touch. We will definitely be returning to Serenity B&B.
"Lives up to its name, immaculate"

We stayed here last weekend and were very well looked after. The hospitality was very welcoming with tea and brownies on arrival which we had out in the idyllic garden. The aromatherapy bath is a fantastic idea that a lot more guesthouses would not have. The breakfasts had incredible variety to choose from with a cheese and bacon on toast option that was absolutely divine! Another benefit was the late checkout that a lot of other establishments can make a big deal of, so the attitude here was very chilled out too. I would definitely recommend this place to friends and wish the proprietors all the very best for the future.

We had a wonderful stay at Serenity B&B. The home was beautiful and we loved their gardens. Very peaceful place. We spent two weeks in Ireland for our 30th Wedding Anniversary and loved every minute of it. Serenity will forever be in our memory as we drove throughout the country. Breakfast was also wonderful but it happended to rain the morning we were leaving or we would have enjoyed it on the beautiful patio.

After 8 days of a road trip around Ireland this was the perfect end to our holiday. We couldn't have found a better place to relax and unwind under the attentive, thoughtful and calming presence of Glenn and Shaun. Our room was spacious, clean and comfortably modern. Afternoon tea after a day out was beautifully presented and very welcome. From the chocolates and wishes of sweet dreams on our pillow to the tips of making perfect soda bread there was nothing that was too much trouble. A perfect B & B for a couple not so sure it would suit a young family.
"Peace & Tranquillity"
07/22/13 DublinRedhead50 Dublin
Was given a voucher for Serenity and decided to use it last weekend. Took my sister along and we both thoroughly enjoyed it. We had the quite room but i honestly think all of the rooms would have been quiet, exceptionally clean, (immaculate white carpets in bedroom) the guys running it were very friendly and helpful. I availed of the aromatherapy bath and spent an hour in it without noticing the time passing, very relaxing. We were also offered tea and fabulous strawberry shortcake which was gorgeous. I have stayed in 5 star hotels and Serenity surpassed them for the peace and tranquillity.
"Quite simply superb!!!"
07/20/13 Joelle B Belfast, United Kingdom
We have just returned from 4 days at Serenity but feel like we've had two months in paradise. In our 10 years of travelling we have never experienced such outstanding quality of service and facilites. It surpasses any 5 star boutique hotel we have stayed in and paid huge prices for. The rooms are immaculate, the food fantastic and Glenn is simply wonderful. Every morning we were greeted with a smile and a choice of breakfast. Everything was cooked to perfection and thoroughly enjoyed. It definitely set us up for the day as we never needed lunch. Glenn's help and advice on where to go was spot on and indeed resulted in the perfect proposal. We cannot thank them enough for making our break so special. Writing this review is making me wish I was sitting on the decking with Shawn's dessert of the day, the brook babbling along and wee lulu lying at my feet. Quite simply superb.
"Serenity is right!!"
07/15/13 seaniefitz Limerick, Ireland
My girlfriend and I only stayed for one night and even at that we felt so relaxed and refreshed after it. It was such a relaxing environment and everything there was top notch. It was the perfect place to go to get away from the busy city life in Dublin. We will definitely be going back and staying for longer in future.
"An unexpected pleasant surprise"
07/15/13 Cristina T Dublin, Dublin, Ireland
Serenity was a unexpected pleasant surprise. Looking for a place to get away for the night, we found everything that we were looking for. They welcomed us with a coffee and homemade brownie while seating in the garden enjoying the sun and the quiet. The room was perfect and full of details. The bath was a wonderful experience and the bed was to die for. Breakfast while listening to Ella Fitzgerald was the perfect ending for a perfect stay! Totally recommendable.
"Perfect name for perfect place!"
07/07/13 MarzenaDublin Dublin, Ireland
We went for only one night to "recharge batteries" and I have to say the place is absolutely brilliant for it. We've booked by booking.com (not for the first time) and for the very first time we've got direct, personal contact by e-mail from the owners with all the details and explanation of the idea of the b&b. As they say "they do things a little differently" and they do. They focus on relaxation and peaceful break away from the city life. You will get perfect good nigh's sleep (there is no sound in the room when you close the windows whatsoever and black out blinds make it really 99.99% dark - for ma actually was 100% dark as I didn't see a thing!) and delicious breakfast in the morning (cooked by Shawn and was absolutely delicious!). The b&b is not suitable for families travelling with children, so peace and quiet is assured. We have been asked in the e-mail to keep noise to a minimum during stay and that sounds good to me. Also cooked breakfast is served from 9am-12noon - what a relief for someone who want to sleep in the morning and do not rush to get your breakfast before 10am, as in all other hotels. There is one more very new thing for me - they have asked to leave all outdoor footwear outside the bedroom, as they have white carpets. I love this idea!
"Perfect peaceful getaway"
06/20/13 John_Ach Dublin, Ireland
My time spent at Serenity Country Escape was just a wonderful experience. Glenn and Shaun were the perfect hosts with a wonderful welcome into their lovely home. Every aspect of our stay seemed perfect, the rooms were very spacious and spotlessly clean. The rooms were 99-100% dark and absolutely silent at night so a good night sleep is guaranteed. The breakfast was also great, I ate the full Irish and my friend ate fruit salad, there were also cereals and juices to choose from and a lovely home made bread baked by Shaun! My friend took advantage of the aroma bath one night and she is still talking of it now. I cannot recommend Serenity Country Escape any higher, it is the perfect country retreat run by two lovely hosts who do their best to make your stay as enjoyable as possible. Thank you Glenn and Shaun, I will definitely be back again.
