Fodor's 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, with pitch-pine floors, massive roof beams, and open fireplaces. Guest rooms, 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, and the innkeepers, Lynda and Henry Deverell, are well known in equestrian circles and encourage guests to enjoy a ride on horseback through the surrounding farmland and woodland. Meals (available to guests only and which must be booked in advance) are served in the kitchen. Check the website for midweek offers and special rates for groups.
