B&B Overview

The Old Bank is one of the most historic guesthouses in Bruff, County Limerick and has been tastefully restored to its original nineteenth century grandeur. The building became the property of the Sadlier family when they purchased it from Allied Irish Banks in 2001 which saw a complete transformation of the building during a 3 year restoration and refurbishment project. The official opening of the "Old Bank" was on the 14th of August 2004.1px stats Miriam, her husband Pat, and children bring the homely experience to The Old Bank. Miriam who previously was a retail manager works very hard to maintain the highest standards that one could expect of such splendid deluxe accomodation. Visitors to the Old Bank can be assured of impressive personal attention while "unwinding" in the beautifully designed manor house rooms. The ethos is "While you stay with us regard our home as your home from home too." Hence the fire is always set in the library to enjoy watching the world go by outside. There is an honesty bar in this room to provide a pre dinner drink or a snack.
