Stay in a beautifully restored 2 bed farmhouse in Ballylooby, Cahir, Co. Tipperary in the heart of the Golden Vale. Situated on a working farm, this 100 year old farmhouse comes full with Irish charm and character.

This is an incredible opportunity to stay in a beautiful traditional Irish cottage in the heart of the Irish countryside. Located in a working farm with cattle and horses, this cottage is a real gem with the famous Irish hospitality included. Contains 1 bedroom with double bed, and 1 single bedroom.

Guests have full use of our lovely cottage. This location has also hosted events by top International horse trainers, and people have flown in to attend from as far away as the USA, Australia and New Zealand.

Pat & family will welcome you when you arrive, and live nearby if you need to get in contact quickly during your stay.

There are TONS of things to do in the area:

COUNTRYSIDE: Walk the Vee in the nearby Sugar Loaf mountains. The Vee is famous because of the breathtaking panoramic views afforded to travellers and sight seers going through the pass. The journey rises to about 2,000 feet (610m) above sea level above Bay Lough, and as it does so it gives wonderful views of a portion of the ‘Golden Vale’ between the Knockmealdown and Galtee Mountain Ranges.

RAMBLING: If walking is your thing, then the area around the Vee, Bay Lough, Loughglenbridge, Sugar Loaf Hill, Knockshanahullion and Gortacullen Wood (just under the Vee following the Tipperary Heritage Way sign) offer a multitude of choices no matter what type of road walking or mountain climbing you fancy. Take a look at our Walks section to give you an idea of some of your options.

HISTORY: Visit nearby Cahir Castle, one of the largest castles in Ireland, is sited on an island in the river Suir. It was built in 1142 by Conor O'Brien, Prince of Thomond. This is a magnificent must see option for any visit to Cahir.

The Rock Of Cashel is also a short drive away. It's huge, it's complex, it's iconic, there is nothing like it anywhere else in the world and it's right here in Cashel at the heart of Tipperary. The Rock of Cashel (Carraig Phádraig), more formally St. Patrick's Rock, it is also known as Cashel of the Kings. Reputedly the site of the conversion of Aenghus the King of Munster by St. Patrick in the 5th century AD. Long before the Norman invasion The Rock of Cashel was the seat of the High Kings of Munster.

SHOPPING: The cottage is a short drive away from the heritage town Cahir, full of interesting shops and pubs and an excellent tourist office set on the banks of the majestic river Suir (perfect for a lazy afternoons picnic!)

GOLF: There are many golf courses in the area, including Cahir, Tipperary, Thurles, Ballykisteen and Dundrum House golf club. If you are a golfer this is the perfect location for you!

EQUESTRIAN: Tipperary is home to Coolmore Stud in Fethard and many equestrian entreprises due to the superb quality of its limestone based grass. Whether you want to go horse trekking, racing or play polocrosse, there is something for everyone here.

Cahir is a really beautiful part of Ireland and we look forward to welcoming you!

Pat is a great guy. He has a beautiful little place in the country. Quiet and cozy. Tea and cake waiting for us and some wood for the stove to keep us warm at night. The house is so nice and it has everything you need. We didn't want to leave.

Spacious cottage on a farm with everything you need and even more: cake on the table, milk and juice in the fridge, coffee, tea, cereals.... This place is so peaceful, it is fantastic. And Pat is such a great host. We really enjoyed our stay at his farm. We can highly recommend this accomodation.

We spent a wonderful weekend in Pat's cottage. It's very cosy and comfortable and the kitchen is adorable with a stove. The country side surroundings are beautiful. I recommand the place for a lovely quiet weekend. Pat was very nice and had the stove running for us before we arrived. It's a real treat to arrive to his cottage and have the room all warm and cosy.
