“A private retreat”
Reviewed 16 September 2012 for a stay in May 2012

The house has wonderful old thick walls with original windows. It has a huge open fire and a wood burning stove. You get a great sense of peace and timelessness in this house. It has a lovely private boithrin entrance with expansive grounds. The best thing for was the total privacy.

“This cottage is a gem, even better than what we expected!”
Reviewed 9 August 2012 for a stay in June 2012

We stayed in this cottage in June 2011 and it exceeded our expectations. Its ended up being a lot bigger than we thought. It has all the mod cons too. There is a fabulous red bath in the main bathroom. The wood burning stove was lovely in the kitchen and the open fire in the living room. It was great to be able to sit and relax in front of it during our stay. The 2 main bedrooms are very big and have ensuites. The local village is very friendly and the local pub has wifi. The owners supplied us with a dongle for wifi as well but its really only for emails and surfing the net . One morning we had Irish soda bread delivered to our door by Alice Lanigan. Now that was special. She checked in on us from time to time making our visit there feel very authentic. If you get a chance climb Slievenamon the local mountain. The views were spectaculor. It’s a real romantic get away.

“Fabulous Irish Country Experience!”
Reviewed 2 May 2012 for a stay in April 2012

person found this review helpful

This was an absolutely wonderful vacation. My husband, daughter ,her boyfriend and I spent a week in this fabulous country house. Everything was perfect right down to the family that owns the home. Alice, Diane and Richard were such gracious hosts the entire week.
The house was a great base camp to do lots of day trips to all over the south, west and east of Ireland. The Lanigans have a beautiful home with everything you need to enjoy your vacation. We could have stayed forever. Thanks Alice for the fresh bread! We hope to return for another visit as soon as we can.
Love The Barry Family

“PEACE, RELAXATION ... TURN THE CLOCK BACK BUT STILL ENJOY THE MOD-CONS!”
Reviewed 30 April 2012 for a stay in December 2010

I would love to keep "The Old House" my little secret but that would be unfair on those who have yet to visit! We stayed here during the winter with friends and what a beautiful refuge it is. We arrived on a cold, rainy evening but opened the door to be welcomed by a large open glowing fire, the smell of home cooked brown bread ... it was the perfect venue for a group of expatriate friends to meet up for a reunion. Although this perfectly restored property is 500 years old, and visually stunning from the outside as it is in the middle of the countryside, the interior of the house is 100% modern with all the necessary mod-cons which meant we were able to wine, dine and luxuriate in the surroundings for the weekend. For those of us who craved a little exercise it was possible to enjoy a long undisturbed country walk and even a trot up to the local village for bread, milk and the odd liquid refreshment! The Lanigan family could not have been more helpful and for their penance now will probably be overwhelmed by international guests as my husband (Italian) has declared it the "real Ireland" to all his family, friends and colleagues!
