House Concert for Sr. Cait

Aug 20th 2018 – It would seem there is little connection between the foothill of the Ox Mountains and the foothills of the high Andes, but there one. Sr Cait Wims, a native of Coolaney, currently works as a missionary in Mache in Peru. The landscape around Mache, while five times higher than the highest […]

Chicken Feed

Chickens are fun, colourful and productive and who wouldn’t want them… and they are among our best attractions here at Moy River B&B. Many people have booked to stay with us just because of the gals! Here in Ireland we call them hens, not chucks or chickens or eggers, just hens! Whatever you call them […]

Nebraska to Cloonacool

Recently I watched the movie, Nebraska. It’s a great movie on many levels; it’s a nice father and son, road trip story better than most but what makes it stand apart is that it is filmed in black and white. You can watch this movie with the sound off and photographically, its stunning! It inspired […]

A Nice Review

Now and again things just happen – nice things and this review we received recently is one of those… nice things. Alana and Chris arrived to us from LA… on their honeymoon! Both people are in the health & fitness business back in the States.  They have a nice website that explains a bit about […]

House Concerts

Moy River Folk Club is a performance space at Moy River B&B. We host House Concerts from time to time, offering audience a close-up and intimate experience with local, national and international artists. Our kitchen and living room space holds about 45 people. It’s too good a space not to use. It was designed for […]

Our Garden Birds

We do our best to make our garden as nice a place as possible for garden birds. Their colour and character add so much to our surroundings here at Moy River. We had a service man call to us on some business a few years ago and before he left told us very excitedly about […]

A New Year – 2017

2016 was another great year here at Moy River B&B with lots of visitors and new friends being made. We were a little busier than your first year so thank you all for that.  2016 was special for a few reasons; it was of course a great year of celebration for Ireland as we commemorated […]

Moy River Birds

We are located at the headwaters of the river Moy in Cloonacool. Every stream that runs by our door is a small tributary to the river which eventually reaches the sea near Ballina in County Mayo. Any day you can spend a few minutes along the streams or the river itself, you will see lots […]

Flags of the World

We feel there is something quite spectacular about a flag; national pride, a sense of occasion, celebration or in our case, a welcome for the weary traveler. When we started Moy River B&B back in 2014, we put our sign at end of our drive and it helped to highlight our entrance. It was however just […]

Recommendations & Awards

Awarded the Magic Stickers! We were delighted at the end of 2015 to get notice from TripAdvisor that because of our consistent quality reviews they would be including us on their Recommended list! Needless to say, after just a year in business, we were delighted with the accolade. It’s a simple process really; the reviews […]
