The main bedroom is very comfortable with a double bed and en suite. We have also made space in wardrobe. The house has a big garden and patio (for relaxing) and one large sitting rooms and also a smaller sitting room with open fire and piano. It is in a quite rural area on a small lane, very safe.There are buses daily to thurles Cashel and clonmel! Also bus directly from Dublin airport to Cashel! Also train only 20minutes away. However we would suggest that the area is much more convenient for guests with a car

Interaction with Guests
We are nearly with Airbnb a year now and our main policy is to provide a genuine service to our guests. We will provide information if needed and hope to make guests feel at home. (Philip is a member of local historical society) We recommend that guests have a car as it is a rural area, even though there is public transport available and our local village is 1km and the town of Cashel is just 6km away, We want to make people feel as relaxed and at home as possible during their stay with us, and if its privacy that our guests want then we will endevour to provide it.
I would highly recomend that you look at the site, the virtualtourist, which is on the web and you can check out Cashel, Co Tippeary. It is a terrific site, which highlights the local area and gives the views of other tourists.
Areas of attraction include the following:
1....Rock of Cashel (6km) This is one of the most spectacular tourist attractions in Ireland, 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.
2......Hore Abbey, Cashel (6km) a ruined cistercian monastery
3.......Coolmore Stud Farm (20km) Home to the most famous stallions in the world
4.......Mitchelstown Caves (15km) Explore a world without sun, without time, a world where man almost feels an intruder, stumbling on a past age, and an era where nature reigns supreme.
5......Cahir Castle (12km) built in the 13th century and well preserved and one of the largest castles in Ireland, was used to film the movie 'Excaliber'
6.......Holycross Abbey (5km) a restored cistecian monastery dating back to 1233, situated on the River Suir.
7........The Vee (18km) a spectacular scenic route through the Knockmaoldowns Mountains, very popular with hikers and walkers
8........Bru Boru Theatre, Cashel (6km) which hosts an irish traditional music, song and dance show throughout the summer months (Tue - Sat)
Other attractions might include going to see a local game of hurling or gaelic football (national sport) which we can arrange for you. Also in our local village (Boherlahan) every Monday night, the local community have a game of bingo with an attendance of about 100 people.
It is probably better if one has a car, we have had guests who have stayed here for few days and have found our home to be a great base to travel easily (daytrips) to Kilkenny(famous smithwicks brewery tours) Waterford (famous for its crystal) Cork (one of the oldest cities in Europe and close to Blarney Stone) Clare (its pituresque landscape) Kerry (its many tourist attractions), Galway (cultural city) & Dublin (our capital city).
Other Things to Note
Cashel Town is also renowned for its amazing restaurants and pubs, we can advise guests on these. We have had guests who have stayed a few days and they describe the area as a hikers paradise, so it is perfect if you want to spend a few days hiking in the knockmaoldown, commeragh or galtee mountains, you can check out a great site called walkingroutes and we can give some local information as well.
We love to travel ourselves and have done house swaps to Germany, France & USA over the years, so we expect people to treat our house as they would their own.
Thank you Ann for sharing your beautiful country home and generous hospitality with us. We had a wonderful stay with you and your family and highly recommend the experience to others. The room with private en suite was exceptional - clean, comfortable, lovely and quiet. You made us feel welcome with homemade cookies, cake and tea and a very fun evening of chatting and singing. Thanks also for the fresh-baked breakfast scones. We wish we could have stayed longer.
Très belle maison, Ann et son mari sont très accueillant, nous avons très bien discuté de notre Road Trip avec eux. La chambre est agréable, le lit confortable dans un environnement propre. Je recommande vivement ce logement !
Jolie demeure à la campagne, à 5mn de Cahir.
Avons été bien accueilli, avec thé et gateaux. Ann est un moulin à parole alors pour les français comme moi qui ont du mal à parler anglais...oups !
Le lendemain matin, Ann a préparé un petit déjeuner en même temps que les sandwichs des enfants puis est repartie se coucher pendant que nous déjeunions. Chacun sa définition du B&B...
Si vous aimez vous sentir comme chez Tata, sans chichi, n'hésitez pas, vous serez un membre de la famille à part entière.
Si vous aimez votre tranquilité et indépendance...
A chacun de voir, histoire de gout.
Ann & Philip are wonderful hosts and their girls are very personable and entertaining.
This listing is a very authentic Irish living home in the country...it's full of life and character.
The relaxed atmosphere will immediately slow you down and make you feel at home.
We had a wonderful evening sitting around the table... sharing drinks and stories.
We felt very much at home here.
Thank you Ann and Philip!
We arrived in Boherlahan and had a little trouble finding Ann's home as our foreign phones were not working right. But a friendly man at the local gas station gave us directions and we found it easily from there. Philly welcomed us with food and tea and we talked about hurling :) After a good night's sleep in a nice room we left early and Ann had left delicious food out for us to eat. All-in-all it was a very nice place and I recommend it for other people.
Ann's house is really nice and peaceful. The scenery with the mountains in the background is really nice. I really enjoyed my stay sipping coffee sitting on the patio outside.
I'll try the recense in English because my trust in google translate isn't very big, therefore excuse me for my mistakes.
We had a lovely stay in the really charming house /home at a top location to see some nice spots in Ireland. Although Ann wasn't at home (holiday), everything was arranged for. The house is spacious with nice terraces and large garden. As it is located in a dead end street, there was no traffic at all. Thank you Ann & Philly for letting us stay in your home.
