What makes this farmhouse unique

The big cities are usually the place to be if you want culture and history, there are many unique benefits of taking a break from the city and visiting the countryside on your holidays.

The countryside usually offer what the tourist is really after. Pristine beaches, impressive mountains, country walks, cows munching grass, listing to birdsong, and catching a whiff of freshly cut grass, the sounds and smells of nature are enhanced in the countryside and they force you to take notice that you should live in the moment. This unique way of local life is just the picture perfect place for you.

Also getting in touch with locals. In those regions not influenced by the effects of mass tourism, the locals are more opening and welcoming towards tourists and that alone can make for a great experience. In the end is not always about touristic attractions but also about the interactions with the people, especially the local people.

The countryside and the cities offer two different worlds within one country. But both represent it's culture in their own way. If you are exploring a new country or even your own you should make time to see both. Taking time to enjoy one of them makes you appreciate the other one even more. It is a good mix of both that makes traveling most enjoyable.

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. Tom and Tina were very helpful with their suggestions on destinations and driving directions. We felt right at home with the Cummins. 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.

The place to stay in Ireland!

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful stay in Ireland and this home is amazing! From the moment we arrived, Tom was waiting to greet us and show us around the house. After travelling over a week, getting to this home was like a warm hug. We immediately felt so comfortable as the home is very clean and well equipped. Tom & Tina had supplied us with grocery staples that we were so grateful for. Tom was quick to help us with our daily schedule and it was so appreciated. He also fulfilled my teenage son's wish of getting to fish in Ireland! We will definitely stay here again when we return to Ireland! Thank you Tom & Tina for a wonderful experience!

Irish Hospitality!

  • 5 of 5

This stay was a much needed get away from the bustle of the city. Tom is a very hospitable host, offering help for whatever you’d like to see or do. Tina supplied the home with fresh fruit, fresh flowers and some breakfast staples. We wanted for nothing. It was great to have the laundry available as we had been traveling awhile, and needed to refresh our clothes. The highlight of this stay was Tuesday night at the pub, where we were invited to join the locals in a traditional jam session! What fun and great memories! Also, enjoyed walking to the lookout rock near the home.

A perfect place to rest after exploring Ireland

  • 5 of 5

When you arrive at Carrigmore Farms, Tom meets you and shows you around the place. He grew up in that house, so there may be a story or two. He and Tina understand you have made quite a journey to get to his previous home, so they have stocked the fridge with beer and milk and eggs and juice, and the pantry with buns and scones. The place is clean and dry. The beds are comfortable, with room enough for 5 grown people. Tom checks in each day to see how your visit is going. He has lots of advice and doesnt care if you take it. He offered great experiences of live music in the hills and rides on the ATV to show where he played as a boy. His love of the farm is endearing. The home is well stocked with music and a tv, which we never turned on, and a wood burning stove, which we used most nights. Many thanks, Tom and Tina. I hope our paths cross again! Best regards, Terri, Jim, Morgan, Duncan and Kellen

Relaxing, peaceful and stress-free

  • 5 of 5

We chose Carrig More Farm because of its proximity to University of Limerick, but it offers so much more than that. Our hosts, Tom & Tina, are the friendliest & most generous of folks. Their home was so welcoming - well stocked with everything you could need, and Tom is most knowledgeable about local sights. We arrived as strangers, but left as friends! We are hoping to come back to Carrig More in the future!
