My four friends and I stayed the night at Agahboe house and found it to be rusticity charming and felt like we were staying at the Bennett house from Pride and Prejudice. If you're looking for an authentic historical home this is the place for you! Michael was there but kept to himself. The caretaker Rod was super helpful and sweet and took the time to show us around the house. He also talked to us in the morning and told us where we should visit and get lunch around town.

Rod was fantastic with the B PERFECT TEAM, making them feel very welcome, lighting the fires for them coming, giving them directions to a show they were attending and concerned when they had not turned up on time. Thanks Rod See you next year B PERFECT GIRLS LEE-ANN, JAN, NICOLE AND AMY

The house was off the main road and we almost passed the entrance to the driveway. Once we got there, we were kindly greeted by Rod who gave us a tour of the house and showed us to our room. The house is spacious and while keeping many of the period aspects it also has most modern amenities as well. We had a great stay and would recommend this to anyone visiting Ireland and want a first hand feel to some of its history.

Michael was away but great arrangements were made with Rod, to meet us. He was very kind and welcoming. He took so much time to show how everything worked and nothing was too much trouble. Thank you so much.

Thankyou Rod and Michael we had a wonderful stay. It was such a pleasure to stay in a period home and experience the ambience of a time gone by. The house was warm, the beds very comfortable and the house equipped with everything you might need. We were a family of seven with an 81 yo grandmother with us and it suited our needs perfectly. A special thankyou to Rod for feeding us all when we arrived late and for his stories and assistance. This is a special place.

Hi Michael Just some feed back from the B PERFECT TEAM, who stayed in your accommodation from 21/09/2015 -24/09/2015. Although it was not a holiday as the 6 girls were working they had a great time in Aghaboe House. The house was very very clean and comfortable, they were all very impressed. They especially asked me to mention Rod, he was a great host and could not do enough for them. Also great communication before the girls arrival with directions etc We will be booking for the Ploughing Show in 2016 when we get the dates for it confirmed. Thank you Michael and Rod
