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

This was just perfect, a relaxed and lovely host, her super cute dog called Finn and a great house.
I can only recommend this place.
Our stay at Helens was great. She is friendly with a wonderful house and dog. Her local tips are also worth listening to.
Helen was a greath host it was a real pleasure to stay at her beautiful, well furnished home. We had the chance to meet with several members of her family getting a real airbnb experience. Everything was at the right place at Helens house. And the garden, the nature around was really beautiful. I can offer this listing to anybody.
The location was ideal, scenic countryside and only a 30 minute walk from town. 8am run starting from front gate highly recommended from personal experience. Helen, as a local, has great recommendations covering culture, activity and entertainment. Room was comfortable and spacious.
Helen is a really nice and friendly host, she had some good tipps for trips in the area and was really helpfull. It was a nice and cosy room with owen bathroom. We were very happy to stay in her beautiful house. I would advise a stay to everybody. :)
This was such a great place to stay in! Helen made us feel quite at home, and was very easy-going. Our room was very clean and tidy. She also gave us great ideas for places to visit during our stay, one of them being an old abbey not far from her place which was quite memorable.
Helen & Finn live in a beautiful home in a manor-like setting. They were charm itself and so very helpful in pointing out sites to see as well as giving great directions.
