About This Listing
A 200-year old rectory stuffed with antiques set in the middle of the Irish countryside on its own gardens, pasture, woodland and orchard extending to 13 acres. Friendly host offers comfortable beds, fine breakfasts and an authentic Irish experience.
Welcome! I live in an old Georgian rectory built around 1812. It's in a stunning location close to lakeland in Westmeath. House is set on 13 acres of woodland, pasture, and gardens. Ideal for you if on a walking holiday, fishing trip, or if you are attending Body and Soul in Clonmellon. Great spot for touring to Fore Abbey, Oldcastle, Castlepollard, Tullynally Castle. I can guide you. I'm a great guy who wants to make you happy, just tell me what you need. My home is a mix of old world with mod cons to make life that bit easier.
Anything required. I want you to be comfortable.
Lakeland Westmeath is just moments away. The area is very much farming and therefore very low residential. So its a peaceful and quiet retreat yet teeming with wildlife. There is a lovely 5-mile circular walk from my front gate which takes you through bogland (dry), forest and very quiet roads (laneways) - perfect after breakfast!
This is a pretty laid back place deep in the Irish countryside. There are no rules, except maybe lets keep smoking outside. Certain pets are welcome, but we should talk about it beforehand.
Kevin was very kind and hospitable. He had a beautiful home, where we were able to enjoy a very authentic experience. His beds were clean and comfortable. The grounds were picturesque, and peaceful. When you're in a 200 year old home you will have an amazing experience, but lack some modern conveniences. It's a wonderful way to relax and escape.
Great place to stay - splendid view, loads of 'original details' to keep you entertained in the occasional rainy day ("it's a project"), marvelous breakfast and a great host.
