Fantastic base to explore real Ireland
The accommodations are relaxing and beautiful. The town and nearby Nenagh have what you need. Hickey's Bar across the street is a wonderful place to meet the nicest people. Highly recommend staying here at Paul and Karen's place in Silvermines. Karen's friendly reception and initial information set the tone for a great visit!

Fantastic property in a lovely location!!
We had a terrific couple of days in this beautiful property!!! Was very comfortable, beautifully decorated and every need catered for. Wonderful host-very thoughtful and plenty of attention to detail. Wish we had more time to stay here but unfortunately our time was limited. Definitely hope to be back!!! The garden is beautiful and so well cared for-so relaxing, but my kids preferred the basketball court & hurling/football pitch just a few yards up the street-kept them entertained until the darkness beat them!!! Thank you very much Karen & Paul-a delight to stay in your lovely property!!!

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.
