  • Worth seeing. Secluded locationon the banks of the Suir
  • Don't trust google to get there from the castle by car. Takes you back route which is not intuitive.
  • Beautiful, you can walk from Cahir Castle or drive , but I think the walk is Fantastic it would take half an hour or so taking it easy , it you have a dog or children they would live the freedom.
  • Pretty cool straw thatched roof building. Admission was a little steep as we had just been to Cahir Castle and had to pay again. I suppose it helps with the upkeep of the house though. We were in a rush so we didnt get to do the tour, but it was neat to see, and took a couple pictures.
  • This place is a gem. 150 year old house, lovingly restored. The tours are charming, as the staff really love the place. Quirky, and the surround park is a very pleasant place to spend a nice day.
