Annaharvey Farm Review

Just 6 km (4 miles) outside of Tullamore town on the Portarlington road, this family farmhouse dedicated to all things equestrian was once an old-world grain barn but has been converted into an elegant accommodation, replete with pitch-pine floors, massive roof beams, and open fireplaces. Guest rooms, redecorated in 2012 in restful creams, are cozy and comfy. It matters not a bit if your interest doesn't run to things horsey—the area has all manner of walking, cycling, and golfing opportunities, and Clonmacnoise and Birr Castle are just a short drive away. Horses, though, are a big interest, as the innkeepers, Lynda and Henry Deverell, host many owners giving their treasured Connemara ponies a spin. Meals (available to guests only and which must be booked in advance) are served in the kitchen.
