About our home

Our newly-renovated country home sits on 20 acres within a quiet rural idyll. It is a 15-minute drive from 2 bustling towns and a 40-minute drive to several golden beaches.
We have 4 double bedrooms, all en-suite, 2 living rooms and a large dining/kitchen area. The house is furnished with an eclectic mix of vintage and contemporary furniture, making it a comfortable, warm and relaxing retreat.
We can access a large forest from our back garden for long nature walks/mountain biking. We have spectacular views of the Suir River from the front of our house (which has Atlantic Salmon and wild Brown Trout fishing with a public permit, which can be obtained locally).
We have all modern conveniences in the house (wi-fi, Sky TV, PlayStation). The master bedroom has a small private sitting room with an open fire and a TV for cosy nights in. Both living rooms have TVs as well as open fires.
The kitchen opens out to a walled garden, which acts as a sun-trap in summer and is a lovely spot for dining al fresco by the fire pit in the evenings.
We have a large paved area which is ideal for basket ball and kids cycling, as well as a full size table tennis table. Our surrounding 20 acres of pasture grassland means that one doesn't have to leave home to have an adventure!
