Luxurious 18th Century Historic School House

Tierneevin, Gort, Co Galway, Ireland

Shawe-Taylor's Old School House is a wonderful place for golf, walking and relaxation. The name Tierneevin is an Irish word meaning 'A Beautiful Place', so the name speaks for itself. This is a most luxurious building and we are very proud of the finish provided. We are certain that our discerning guests will enjoy holidaying in this beautiful part of Ireland. Charming period school house (ca. 1820), recently restored to its original splendour. Eco friendly interior finished with breathable products such as lime mortar on walls, pitch pine and traditional flag on floors. Insulated throughout, the schoolhouse has a high energy rating. With its cathedral style ceilings, wooden beams and a mezzanine/balcony bedroom, it is beautifully presented with antique furniture throughout, adding enormous warmth and character. This is a wonderful place to get away from all the stress in an area of outstanding natural beauty and geology.

Ideally suited for a golfing and/or walking holiday. Gort Golf club is literally on your doorstep with very reasonable rates available, and an excellent clubhouse and restaurant. This superb 18 hole Championship Golf Course is set on 160 acres of picturesque parkland, overlooking the Burren and the Clare Hills. The Golf Course was designed by the 1989 Ryder Cup hero Christy O'Connor. It consists of four outstanding par-3's, a testing par-5 ninth and a terrific par-4, carved through by Burren stone and natural waterways. From the property you can take a delightful 3 mile circular walk, which runs through the Burren landscape. The scenery, birds and wildlife, botany, geology and archaeology - all can be enjoyed on this short walk. Also close by is Kilmacduagh Monastery with several churches and a round tower. The Monastery was established in the 7th century by Saint Colman Mac Duagh, hence the name Kilmacduagh (the church of the son of Duac). Kinvara and Ballyvaughan are nearby fishing and farming villages both on the edge of Galway Bay. For shopping there is Galway City and Ennis, both only 20 minutes' drive from the property. There are many fine restaurants close by in Gort and Kinvara.

Large House in the Country
It was a quiet place, around the corner from a Catholic Church, where we attended Mass. It was charming. Isolated from the hurly-burly of the town of Gort. Beds were comfortable and kitchen was superb. Living room was large and comfortable and plenty of shelf space for all our daily stuff.
