About This Listing
Old Country house, all mod cons, but a little shaky in parts... Has beautiful dinning and drawing rooms, if needed could be great for family reunions on the island, we have had a number of parties over the years.
It is located off the M1 20mins from Dublin Airport.
A century old family home, opens its doors to the world, to see what may happen.
It is ideal for a stop over in Dublin, in between flights, or if you need a break, and is family friendly. It's quite a large home, with dinning and drawing rooms, both with large fire places, a den, cosey room with TV, and a kitchen... Upstairs we have 3 large bedrooms, One with Double bed, One with 2 singles, one with a double bed and 2 singles... More fotos on the way..
The house is pretty open, guests can make themselves at home, have a walk down the fields... we can provide the best farm produce the season has to offer, if you are interested please inquire about catering services.
Interaction with Guests
We can show you around, let you know the best places on the island, whether you are looking for the next hostel or Michelin star restaurant... ...
We are in the middle of nowhere... 2 miles from nearest village, with a local pub, shop, hair dresser and church... we have the famous 'Seamus Ennis' centre that host concerts, films and trad sessions.
to be honest not really, you need a car, we can arrange pick ups from Airport or local town, and we can sort out bikes, if you want head to local village... or try flapping your wings, we're on a little hill, just look out !
Other Things to Note
We can offer bespoke services for parties, or family reunions, house swapping, just let us know...
civil as can be... not like Italians :)
We enjoyed our short stay at the Old Country House :)
The house is very big and the host very welcoming.
It is in a strategic spot as we could reach many nice places easily, on the north Dublin coast and country side.
Unfortunately we had to leave early!
About the Host, James
I see this as a nice way to see the world and explore other cultures... From living in Italy for over 10 years - I moved back to family home, and thought, why not invite the world here... a very rural part of the world, ideal for a night stop over, or a walk in the country fields.
My background is in design, and interested in travel, contemporary art and new technologies
