We, Lesley and Fergus Merriman, offer you warm comfortable accommodation in our unique home.
Guest accommodation consists of two adjacent bedrooms, a double and a twin, sharing a bathroom in the old part of the house, ideal for family or friends. There is an additional double with an ensuite bathroom. All rooms have comfortable beds with cotton sheets. All are accessed by a spiral staircase in the tower.
Downstairs there is a bright day room overlooking the garden, it has lots of glass creating an indoor outdoor space and a wood stove if it is chilly.
The property has extensive landscaped gardens, we love playing with the landscape. There is a 75metre 'lake', which you can swim in if you are very hardy! There is about 6 acres of young mixed woodland (about 8,000 trees). We grow vegetables and fruit organically, we have hens and sometimes a lamb or pig or two.
We live midway between Galway and Limerick. Less than an hour from the coast and the Burren. We are a 40 minute drive from Shannon Airport. Our home is situated between the villages of Feakle and Tulla, both famous for Traditional music. The nearest town is Ennis.
House rules are really just common sense - leave muddy boots at the door.
Don't open bedroom windows with the light on or you will get a room full of insects.
Please don't put anything down the toilet - other than bodily waste and toilet paper - bin provided sanitary products etc. which will be incinerated.
We recycle as much as possible glass, plastic, tins.
