A beautiful 19th century cottage on the outskirts of a friendly little village in Tipperary. 3 bedrooms sleeping up to 5 people, a well equipped kitchen, fully fitted bathroom with shower, and all the scenery you could ever want. An amazing place!
This cottage has an amazing history. Built in the 19th century it was originally the village pound, where stray animals were kept until claimed. It was burned down during the Irish Civil War, and then became the home of the local Garda. It ended up in the 1970s as a village shop. Local residents remember calling there as children to buy sweets.
The cottage is an ideal base to explore the area. The coast is less than half an hour's drive away, whilst the Knockmealdown Mountains are on the doorstep. Or you could just sit and watch the world go by......
Guests will have full use of the cottage and its amenities whilst staying there. On arrival you will find it clean and tidy. All we ask is that you leave it as you found it. If you have any problems speak to our friends and nearest neighbours Jan & Gus. Gus was born in the village and knows everything there is to know about the area.
Interaction with Guests
We live in the UK, so we are not likely to have the pleasure of meeting you. Our friends Jan & Gus look after the cottage for us when we're not around, and they will be your point of contact.
You will find information in the cottage with suggestions of places to visit, but you know what? The area is so beautiful and the people are so friendly you just can't go wrong!
There is NO public transport, so a car is an absolute must out here. You can leave your car outside the front of the cottage, or park it in the large yard at the rear if you prefer.
Cork Airport is about and hour and a half away, Waterford Airport less than an hour.
Other Things to Note
Just enjoy your stay in our home.
Please do not smoke in the house. Drinking beer is, on the other hand, compulsory......
Stay here and you could give this host their first review!
Lucky enough to have taken early retirement. Live in Sheffield, UK, with my wife Jane. Jane is half Irish and her sister lives in Clonmel Tipperary. We bought our then derelict cottage as a project. Basically, the more time we spend in Ireland, the more we want to be there. Try it and you'll see what we mean.
