Interaction with Guests
As much or as little as they like. I am a very keen cyclist and love hiking in the mountains so can provide all you need to know. Also very well travelled around Ireland so can help you plan the next stage of your trip
Peaceful area in the heart of The Golden Vale yet close to major transport routes. Tipperary is a county of immense natural beauty, with a unique and ancient heritage. Shaped by the rugged Galtee Mountains and the River Suir, Tipperary has some of Irelands most breathtaking scenery and dotted with towns and villages. Cashel is home to the iconic Rock of Cashel. One of the most spectacular tourist attractions in Ireland and one of the most visited. Cashel’s rich history is reflected in its built heritage, from prehistoric earth mounds to mediaeval monasteries and fortified town houses, a Georgian Cathedral and a 21st century Library (which holds regular exhibitions, workshops and concerts). The Georgian quarter also boasts the Bolton Library where you can find the smallest book in Ireland.
With 3 mountain ranges nearby its a mecca for the outdoors. Cycling routes are endless!
Good transport to Cashel. My home is located 3km outside town so having your own car is best. Of course cycling tourists will be most welcome also!
Other Things to Note
Must like my dog (9 year old lab). He likes everyone who gives him food
no smoking inside the house - outside on the deck is fine
Helen a été particulièrement accueillante et son chien Finn également !
La chambre était conforme aux attentes, la salle de bain spacieuse et propre, la maison au calme et très agréable.
Helen nous a donné toutes les instructions nécessaires avant d'arriver et nous a également donné plein de conseils très utiles une fois sur place.
Ce fut un séjour tout à fait agréable et nous n'hésiterions pas, si nous devions repasser dans la région, à y refaire une halte !
A recommander sans hésitation

Thank you so much Baptiste - Itranslated it using google - Helen welcomed us very well and her nice dog too. Her house is very quiet, very pretty, and the room was very comfortable. She gave us good advice and recommended a good restaurant, at a reasonable price. Recommendation 100%
Avec les explications d'Helen ainsi que les coordonnées GPS. Le logement est facile à trouver.
La chambre est très grande et très confortable. La salle de bain privative était très grande et très propre.
Helen n'a pas pu être présente pour notre arrivée mais elle nous a laissé des clés ainsi que de précieux conseils sur les restaurants.
Nous avons beaucoup aimé notre séjour à Cashel et grâce à Helen nous n'avons pas payé le prix de l'entrée à Rock of Cashel suite à une promo en cours ni le parking.
Helen est très agréable et très accessible et il y a tout ce qu'il faut pour le petit déjeuner.
Son chien est lui aussi très agréable, nous ne l'avons jamais entendu aboyer et il est très câlin :)
Thank you so much Marion - I used google translate and this is what I found...With explanations of Helen and the GPS coordinates. Accommodation is easy to find.
The room is very large and very comfortable . The bathroom suite was very large and very clean.
Helen could not be present for our arrival but left us with key and valuable tips on restaurants.
We loved our stay in Cashel and thanks to Helen we have not paid the price of admission to Rock of Cashel following a promo in progress or parking.
Helen is very nice and very accessible and there is everything you need for breakfast .
His dog is also very nice, we 've never heard barking and is very cuddly :)
She got the touch for hosting.
Superb. A lovely house, in quiet situation, with an excellent room and facilities, and a warm, helpful host: can't be bettered.
Helen have a wonderful house in a really quiet place. Unfortunately she was not here during our stay but she left tons of post-it to guide us around the house . It was perfect !
Our trip to Helen's was perfect! We started off by arriving super late, at around 11pm but Helen was still up and waiting for us and even messaged me worried we were lost, which might have been a problem as my friends internet on her phone was not working when we arrived in town. This wouldn't be an issue for anyone with the foresight to write down or save the directions Helen sends you when you book instead of waiting to look them up once you get into town like we did.
However you can even look at everything on google streetview in advance if you are concerned which my travel partner did before and she was able to lead us directly to Helens house with no issue. The house is very nice inside and our room was very comfortable, and clean. There was plenty of room to put all of our luggage and shopping as well. There was also a plug converter and a hairdryer provided.
Breakfast is whenever you want and you have access to everything in the kitchen, which suited us just fine. Everything in the house was clearly labeled with sticky notes as well so there was no confusion.
Helen is very kind and relaxed about things, and very helpful. We were up late the next morning and she stopped in to give us some recommendations on places to see before she left for the day. All in all a great spot and i would definitely book again!
