Karen Brown's Review

Eoin’s great-great-grandfather came to the Nire Valley to build the church. He married a local girl Hanora and together they lived in a little cottage adjacent to the church nestled beside the tumbling River Nire in this delightfully wild and isolated spot on the edge of the Comeragh Mountains. They would not recognize their little home for it has been extended to include a parade of sitting rooms, spacious restaurant, hot tub for eight in the conservatory, and array of large bedrooms.

All bedrooms have Jacuzzi bathtubs—just for fun, reserve one of the six rooms whose bathrooms come equipped with Jacuzzi tubs for two. Whenever you come to stay, you can be sure of being well fed—Mary, Eoin’s mum, lays out a feast of a breakfast for which there is always a variety of freshly baked breads. In the evening Eoin (pronounced Owen) and his wife Judith offer a set, four-course, dinner with lots of choices for starters and main courses.

Packed lunches, maps, and directions are available for walks that range from leisurely rambles to challenging hill hikes. Non-walkers can drive to Lismore, Cashel, or over The Vee, returning in time for a visit to one of the nearby pubs for a drink and perhaps (more often in the summer months) a late-night Irish music session.
