Guestbook comments from the owner

Had the most wonderful family vacation at Carrigmore Farm. Tina and Tom Cummins were such a joy. The farm was perfect, the perfect location for our daily excurtion's around the beautiful Irish countryside.

We hope and pray that God will allow us to return to Ireland again someday in the future. We are so thankful for our new Irish friend's.

COZY, SPACIOUS, ABSOLUTELY LOVELY FAMILY HOME

  • 5 of 5

This was the best home we have ever stayed in on all of our journeys in the last 10 years. A true HOME that has been used as such for 300 years. The owner Tom is also the most pleasant, kind, accommodating man we have probably ever met.

The house is stocked with absolutely everything you could possibly need and if there was something missing, Tom would go get it for you without a moments hesitation.

It is decorated beautifully in a traditional mix of furniture and wallpapers. There is a wonderful peat/coal burning cast iron stove that we enjoyed every day, as well as a large fireplace in the main sitting room. The collection of albums and record player were also lovely to listen too while sitting by the fireside.

4 Bedrooms provide plenty of sleeping space, (one is a loft that my daughter LOVED). The beds were extremely comfortable. There is one bathroom, but that was not a problem. It is very large and roomy with a giant tub with shower, and a separate shower stall as well.

This property is out on a farm so you are not stuck in among lots of people. Beautiful views all around, with a huge courtyard that is all your own. Washer and dryer as well as deep freeze also provided.

The location is very well suited as a jumping off point to see all of the major sites. We went to Cahir Castle, Rock of Cashel, Cliffs of Moher, Killkenny Castle, Blarney Castle, Glendalough Monestary, Powerscourt Gardens and Waterfall, Muckross Estate, Kilarney, Dingle Penninsula, Waterford Crystal, Dunbrody Famine Ship, Charles Fort, and Hook Lighthouse, just to name a few. These sites were all approximately 2-3 hours or less away.

I can not say enough about this home and the owners. We will definitely stay ONLY in this home on our next journey to IRELAND!

Thank you Tom for making our first trip to Ireland such a pleasant experience!

Large and Cozy

  • 4 of 5

Our group had a nice time in this large farmhouse. There was plenty of room for us all and we enjoyed the large table in the center of the house that made it possible for us all to sit around in the mornings and evenings, enjoying each other's company. The farmhouse comes equipped with plenty of DVD's and board games that kept us very entertained. Because of the farmhouse being located so far from other things, it made for a beautiful night's sky to gaze at. It wasn't a bad drive to Limerick or to some of the interesting castles in the area. The farmhouse is indeed old but also clean. There are many Catholic icons such as crosses and religious paintings on the walls throughout the entire house which may be off-putting to people of other faiths. The fireplaces do require someone to regularly make trips to the shed for coal and wood, but this just added to the farmhouse experience. Having a washer and dryer in the nearby shed was also nice to have. Tom was very kind and helpful, available for anything we needed. We really enjoyed meeting him and his wife!

Cozy, Comfortable, and Restful

  • 5 of 5

We really enjoyed our stay. Thomas had the place ready for us and made sure to take the time to show us the ins and outs and to ensure it was set up the way we needed it an on our schedule. His wife had also gone and picked up a few groceries and treats which served us well on the rest of the trip.

I worked a bit during the trip and the wifi did pretty well with video conferences, emails, chats, and any other tools I had up. It was also really nice to work next to a warm fire.

Definitely in a good location if you're trying to see a lot of Ireland. Easy day trips to Killarney, Blarney Castle, Cord, Wicklow Mountains, Galway, and more.

A superb Irish experience

  • 5 of 5

What makes a visit are the people. This old farmhouse overflows with warm feelings. The hosts do everything to make your stay a memorable one. They know a lot about the surrounding area and can guide you to places to visit suited to your interests. We were looking for something off the tourist path and closer to daily Ireland and found it here. It is pretty easy to find and has numerous things to see and experience within about a 1.5 hour radius. We easily made it to both the east and west coasts on day trips. If you go, ask Tom about the Benedictine Abbey at the old Barrington estate. If you're there at 6pm you can hear the Gregorian chants by the monks!!

Beautiful, peaceful house

  • 5 of 5

We stayed here to attend our daughter's graduation at UL. We had the most wonderful time during the time we were there. The house is very central and accessible.It is beautifully maintained and is full of history.It is warm, cosy and comfortable and provides everything you need for entertainment, from wifi to board games, LPs, books and musical instruments. The owner was so kind to us and made our celebration very special. We especially enjoyed the great sense of peace in the house and found the few days we were there very relaxing. We will recommend this house to all our friends and hope to go back in the future.

Great place for a family vacation

  • 5 of 5

It is a great vacation spot if you like peace and quiet. It is a rural setting but with fair amount of facilities close by. It is close to interesting features such as neolithic burials and peat bogs. Tom and Tina couldn't have been nicer. Their property is a genuine 18th century building. My only regret is that we didn't spend more time in the farm area itself. We were too busy trying to see all that Ireland has to offer. Of course a week is not going to do justice to Ireland. Don't miss the great sights and sites just off the beaten track in this beautiful part of Ireland. And my thanks to Tom and Tina for making a memorable vacation. Tom is full of local knowledge and a brilliant guide with lots of advise. Five stars for the location, for the farmhouse and for the hosts. Thanks
