From Westfield, USA Jul 2010

Our group consisted of 6 adults and 4 children. The house was perfect. Everything about it was quality and comfort. The location is excellent and close to all the major tourist attractions in Tipperary and Cork as well as Killkenny.
Located in a friendly village with all necessities close at hand.
Don’t miss the chance to stay at the Old Parochial House
We highly recommend it and hope to visit again.

From Hong Kong, Hong Kong Dec 2009

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.
