Modern family house in rural Ireland an hour north of Dublin airport. The house is located near Carrickmacross, Co Monaghan, very close to the Nuremore Hotel, in the heart of the fresh water fishing area.
We have one available double bedroom, with an ensuite and wardrobe. We can accommodate up to two guests. We have wifi, parking, a large garden and a friendly Irish welcome waiting for you.
One of the main attractions is the fresh water fishing as we are surrounded by lakes.
During your stay you can expect a comfortable room and facilities. However, you will need to share our kitchen. We can provide breakfast for an extra charge. We have our own hens and get fresh eggs daily.
You need a car to get here as in the Irish countryside there is no public transport. The Nuremore Hotel & Country Club with its very fine restaurant is close by. The town of Carrickmacross is 4km away. We welcome families and have a child friendly house.
We don't allow animals in the house.
Guests will have access to all areas of the house (except for family bedrooms) including large sitting room, kitchen, table tennis room and garden.

We expect you to leave the place as you found it and to be happy to be part of our household during your stay. We will try to make you feel as welcome as possible and are happy for you to make yourself at home while here.
We had wonderful comfy stay at Maria's place. The house is beautiful and tastefully decorated. Its clean, tidy and spacious. Very welcoming couple including 4 cute kids. They were very flexible and accommodating.
We were treated with delicious Vegetarian Dinner prepared by Gordan and yummy dessert by Maria. Also the breakfast was given complimentary. We had great time having interesting conversations with them. There was so much to discuss, exchange & learn. We thoroughly enjoyed and our stay was lovely :)
This was our very first time experience with airbnb and I must admit that it was fabulous. I would highly recommend a visit.
If you are looking for a break in the Irish countryside,Maria's house is the place to head (website hidden) is within easy reach of the bustling small town of Carrickmacross with it's many bars and eateries.
Modern house enjoys all the pleasures and tranquility that this rural setting has.The area offers many opportunities for walking along country lanes and lakesides.Maria and her family are very welcoming. Guests are free to join in with the hub of the household or take a very peaceful rest in the guest bedroom.The house is spacious enough for whatever your preference might be; lively conversation or chilling out.
Maria's flair for interior design adds to the delight of staying in the house.
Staying with Maria felt like visiting old friends. We were greeted with a warm welcome, cups of tea, good conversation, and 3 lively children. The room was spacious, comfortable, and clean, with private en suite bathroom. Maria was very flexible with our check in and check out time. This was our first time using airbnb, and the more personal experience of getting to stay with locals was exactly what we were looking for. Definitely recommended if you enjoy interacting with kids and being treated to berries fresh from the garden.

About the Host, Maria
Gordon and I have been living in this house since 2006 when we bought it new. We have four children between the ages of 7 and 12. We enjoy country life, growing our own food, we keep chickens and rear pigs for the table. We both love to read lots and have an extensive library in our house. We also have a table tennis table and a piano.
We love having visitors and have a relaxed and informal family home with lots of good food and home cooking. Do come and stay.
