Eskermore House Review

In summer, a delightful display of rambling roses adorns the doorway of this charming 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 a wholesome dinner with advance notice.
