About This Listing
We offer a warm friendly welcome to our large country house in a rural area, on a small beef farm, only 6km from the historical town of Cashel. We have 3 bedrooms available, one en-suite. Included in price per room is a self service breakfast.
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 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 endevaour 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 (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
It is probably better if one has a car, we have had guests who found our home to be a great base to travel easily (daytrips) to Cork, Kerry, Galway & Dublin.
Other Things to Note
Cashel Town is also renowned for its amazing restaurants and pubs, we can advise guests on these.
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.
From Aug 3 - 15, 2015 the minimum stay is 2 nights.
I think I never met a family that was more hospitable than the family Ryan. They were not home when we wanted to come, but Ann arranged a key and we could stay in their house, it was until the next morning until we met. The room was nice with a bathroom ensuite. In the morning we had some homemade scones which were delicious! It is a perfect place to stay if you want to visit the rock of Cashel. Ann recommended us some places to eat in Cashel which had nice food and were of good price. We only had one night with the Ryan family so only talked to them in the morning. It is a wonderful warm family with two lovely daughters.
Le logement est conforme à la description, chambre avec salle de bain privative. L'accueil a été bon. Ann et ses filles sont très gentilles.
Ann nous a bien conseillés pour dîner et nous a même remis un coupon de réduction.
Cependant le petit déjeuner n'est pas vraiment organisé. Les scones étaient bon, mais Ann n'était pas là. Nous nous sentions un peu de trop au milieu d'une famille sympathique.
Very nice family. we have discovered hurling sport with Philip.
Famille tres agreable. Nous avons decouvert le hurling avec Philippe qui entrainait son equipe.
Great place to stay, Ann is extremely accommodating and gracious. If you are going to Rock of Cashel she is minutes away.
I only had a one night stay with Ann and Philly and their lovely girls, but it was full of life and family love. Wonderful setting, comfortable bed - always a must for me and those great breakfast scones - just yum. Highly recommended
We spent wonderful days with Ann and her family. The house is warm and welcoming and you feel like home. Thank you very much for the relaxing and great time.
We had a great time with Ann and her family. Her and her girls were very kind and hospitable. The location is wonderful if you're looking for a bit of solitude, and Cashel is right nearby.
