Mr Tom Cummins
Discover the Ireland your soul has been searching for, a 300 year old cottage with all tmodern necessities that sleeps up to 5 and located in peaceful rural setting, close to castles and attractions.
Come and experience the un-discovered Ireland. A stay in this memorable old house set in lush green farmland in the heart of the countryside, heals the heart, soul and mind and gives an opportunity to experience quietness and tranquility. You can walk through our farm roadways, or take a bicycle ride around the local area to hear the warm witty tales of the neighbourhood. Carrigmore or 'Big Rock' in the Irish Language, is a major geological feature adjacent to the farm which can be used as a viewing point.
The farmhouse is situated approx 50 minutes from Shannon Airport, bypassing Limerick City and 3 miles from the village of Doon. The village has a Roman Catholic church and 3 grocery shops, one with petrol station and bakery, a butcher's shop, a garage, a doctor’s surgery and pharmacy, a hardware store, a bank and post office, a take away and restaurant and numerous pubs with live entertainment at weekends for both young and old to enjoy.
Visit Tipperary Town to enjoy weekly traditional Irish music or cinema, swimming pool and leisure centre, or shop more extensively. Set in peaceful pastoral farmland, the house offers you an opportunity to see a working farm, visit old castle ruins,(the nearest one in Castletown dating back to 1225, a non-Norman castle with many unique features)and admire many beautiful country churches.
