Cead Mile Failte – A Hundred Thousand Welcomes!

A warm welcome awaits you at Michaeleen's Manor Bed and Breakfast, a B&B one mile from Cong on the borders of counties Mayo and Galway, which is themed on The Quiet Man movie. We are Gerry & Margaret Collins and we've welcomed guests from all over the world, including John Wayne's daughter – Marissa Wayne, who kindly complimented our "warm Irish hospitality, great Irish breakfasts, comfortable beds and wonderful hot showers!"

At Michaeleen's Manor, The Quiet Man B&B, you can expect to be entertained over breakfast with tales from my time as The Quiet Man Tour Guide, while Margaret, who was a chef in Ashford Castle during President Regan's stay in 1984, cooks you up a delicious breakfast! With character named bedrooms and one of the world's largest collections of Quiet Man memorabilia – with Quiet Man photos, posters, paintings and stained glass, Michaeleen's Manor B&B is the place to stay for Quiet Man fans.

We offer single, double triple and quadruple rooms all en suite with cooked breakfast, free wifi, free parking, tea and coffee making facilities, TV/DVD, towels and toiletries.

Michaeleen's Manor B&B is an Irish Tourist Board approved Bed and Breakfast, and we were proud to receive the Tourist Board's Customer Service Excellence Award in 2019.

Michaeleen's Manor B&B is located in an area of outstanding beauty – 1 mile from the beautiful village of Cong in Connemara. Cong was the only village listed on TripAdvisor's top 10 Irish destinations in 2018. The village is an inland island surrounded by water, with quaint shops and cafes and historical ruins dating back as far the 12th Century.

Michaeleen's Manor Bed and Breakfast is ideally located for Quiet Man fans just 1 mile from The Quiet Man Museum in Cong, where tours of the Quiet Man film locations depart daily. It is also the closest Bed and Breakfast to The Lodge at Ashford Castle, which is 5 minutes walk away. The B&B is also just 5 minutes walk from Ireland's finest brown trout and salmon fishing on Lough Corrib and 10 minutes walk from the world famous Ashford Castle. Hawk walks are a real treat at Ireland's School of Falconry at Ashford Castle and Cruises on Lough Corrib depart from Lisloughrey Quay 5 minutes walk from the B&B.

There is an abundance of outdoor activities on the B&B's doorstep - from kayaking, horse riding, cycling and walking trails through the 2,000 acres of woodlands that surround Cong to more adventurous mountain climbs in Connemara including the Maamturks, the Twelve Bens, and Croagh Patrick – the Holy Mountain of Ireland's Patron Saint.

While it is easy to spend a week or more enjoying the many things to do and see in Cong (see our Things to do page), Michaeleen's Manor B&B is very centrally located on the borders of counties Mayo and Galway, only 20 miles from the Wild Atlantic Way at Killary Harbour and 26 miles from Galway city and Westport – an ideal base from which to explore the west of Ireland, including the Aran Islands, Achill Island and the Marian Shrine at Knock. With the wonderful new motorway Cong is now only 2 and a half hours drive from Dublin.

What our guests said...

The Quiet Man Museum, Tours & Giftshop

The Quiet Man Museum is an exact replica of the exterior of White O’Morn, the ancestral cottage bought by Sean Thornton on his return to Ireland, as the original White O’Morn cottage is unfortunately now in ruin. The Musuem is also an exact replica of the White O’Morn interior, which was a Hollywood set. The Quiet Man Museum represents the first time the exterior and the interior of White O’Morn have been created in one place.
