Don’t miss the chance to stay at the Old Parochial House
We highly recommend it and hope to visit again.
Beautiful old house set in the countryside near a little village. Arrived on a freezing, icy night to find the heating on and a welcome pack of goodies. Immaculately kept - clean and well resourced. We were a group of 8 (4 couples) travelling together and the house was spacious to accommodate us all comfortably. We self-catered and there is a huge, modern kitchen to work in. All-in-all excellent value with the cost spread between the 8 of us. Would like to go back at a warmer time so we could get out and explore more of Ireland.
