Grandma
The property has the feeling of a historic cottage, but it has all the comfort and modern appliances of a new house. The hostess was very kind and helpful, going beyond her duties to make us feel comfortable and welcome. I recommend this house to anyone who wants to experience the beautiful Ireland countryside.

Relaxing stay in lovely surroundings
Spacious and thoughtful touches made for a good base for discovering North Tipperary. We had very easy access to the Silvermine Mountains for walking and it's close to Lough Derg and local heritage sites. Would recommend Nenagh for food shop and eating out options near by.
