Fodor's Review

A delightful display of rambling summer roses adorns the doorway of this charming ivy-covered farmhouse, which, located 9 km (6 miles) west of Edenderry on R402, is a good base for hiking in the Slieve Bloom Mountains. Once inside the entry you'll note that the old-world quirks of these lovely lodgings also include a chiming grandfather clock and an organ in the sitting room for musically gifted guests (those without a talent for tickling the ivory are gently urged to refrain). The guest rooms are simply but comfortably furnished and face south over a beech-tree-lined avenue and semi-wild gardens. The sitting room has an open turf fire, a piano, and cable TV; room TVs are available on request. Host Ann Mooney will prepare dinner with advance notice. If you fancy having a go at sky-diving, the Irish Parachute Club is just 7 km (5 miles) away.
