  • Go through Kilnaboy village in the direction of the Burren national park, its 4km from here. Stay left at the only intersection. You can call ahead and book tea and cake, Irish family. 
  • This is a must for real Father Ted fans. If you aren't into the show, don't bother at all. It is WELL off the beaten path but we planned a road trip afterwards to Cliffs of Moher and then on to Galway...  more »
  • The yank who owned it was a bit of a let down, her irish husband probably drove to drink with what goes on in his own home. All in all would recommend to any fan.

  • Amazing!! Would highly recommend! We attended father Teds house for tea. Booking in advance is essential and don't be worried if you don't receive an email/text back straight away! You will get one but give yourself plenty of time! We didn't know what to expect when we arrived at the house but it was a great experience and I would definitely go back! We were greeted with lovely cakes and tea and plenty of it! There was also props to take pictures. The family still lives in the house and they were very friendly and kind! The house is only open to those who book which is totally understandable, after all this is they're home! They do allow you to take pictures outside the gate If you haven't booked which is also a nice experience!!
  • Great to see the actual house where the shows were filmed. Didn't see inside and woman who answered the door to us was extremely unfriendly. Never received a response to my email either
  • How the makers of Father Ted found this place I will never know. Owners very lucky people because what a hell of a view to wake up to everyday.
  • Heading to Clare on a family holiday soon. We are all Father Ted fans so, tempted by the thought of mountains of triangular sandwiches and cakes with cocaine in them, we decided to book into the Father Ted house for tea. I emailed the owners last Monday, only to be met by a silence worthy of Father Stone himself. Not to be put off, I followed up with a text on Wednesday. The owner remained as silent as the Holy Stone of Clonrichert. I began to worry that, in attempting to read my messages on their phone, they had suffered some terrible mishap in the manner of Father Larry Duff. Finally, on Friday, a text! I had asked about availability from a Monday to a Friday but the word came back that there was no availability for the Mon or Tues. But what about Weds - Fri? That, it would appear, was an ecumenical matter. I responded at once, asking about those dates. Another response, a mere two and a half hours later this time, asked how many people it was for. Hope rising, I responded immediately that we are a group of four. Once again, hours of silence from the Parochial House. Had the owner fallen into a Father Jack style drink-induced torpor, or even coma? I texted once more, somewhat pathetically assuring them that we are all huge fans of the show (it's true - I even attended a studio recording of one of the episodes in London and bought my eldest child the Ted box set for his 10th birthday, ensuring his superfandom). Another day dawned with no word. At this stage I wondered if this whole approach was a huge joke, designed to reflect the chaotic nature and ramshackle organisation of life on Craggy Island. Was I meant to respond in kind, asking the owner to go on, go on, go on, go on, go on and take our booking? I'm afraid at this point I didn't see the funny side. My sense of humour was both small AND far away. I texted again, expressing my frustration - I have to admit, the phrase 'fupping ridiculous' was used. So alas, we'll have to content ourselves with a photo outside the house and no tea. I suppose we could always try getting in touch with Father Dick Byrne.
  • No tours are available to view the inside of the house. You must remain outside the gates. There is no problem taking photos, and the local "Ted tours" is a great option for fan's of the show
