Fabulous Family Home!

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I stayed at Flemingstown House for five nights with both sets of in-laws. We had a marvelous time! The home is centrally located, so we were able to do several day trips to see the sights of Ireland. It is quaint and cozy, sits far back from the road so it is quiet, has a fireplace which we used (even in July!), an outdoor seating area which was wonderful, and so much room. Every bedroom has an en suite bathroom, which made things incredibly convenient. It is truly a beautiful setting. The best part of the place is the owner, Imelda. She is kind and considerate and willing to do anything to make your stay more comfortable. I would highly recommend staying here - it was a highlight of our trip!

Incredible Experience - Stunning Home, Property &

Incredible Experience - Stunning Home, Property & Hostess.

We rented the house for a family birthday vacation. At the height, we had 13 people in the home and it easily accommodated us all. Imelda is a gracious, attentive and thoughtful hostess. And an amazing cook! She checked in periodically to ensure everything was going well. The home is warm and inviting. As mentioned, plenty of room for everyone. And quiet - you couldn't hear people downstairs while in the upstairs bedrooms - great for those who chose to sleep in or go to bed early. Great location. Easy drive from Shannon airport. Home is close enough to a motorway to make travel within the region painless. Nearby town has good pubs and a great supermarket - essential when entertaining and feeding that many people.

In conclusion, our experience at Flemingstown exceeded our expectations 10 fold

Exceptional, dream-come-true experience in the heart of the Irish countryside

  • 5 of 5

I can't imagine a more perfect setting for a large group (we were 11) who want to immerse themselves in the beauty and warmth of Ireland than Flemingstown House. From the moment we turned down the long, tree-lined country lane, we sensed the history and magic of this place. And what a place: a handsome, ivy-covered manor house with several charming gathering spaces, beautifully appointed bedrooms all ensuite, a large chef's kitchen where we made most breakfasts and some dinners, and a large formal dining room with stained glass windows where we ate in fine Irish style when we weren't dining al fresco near the rose gardens where we could hear the wind in the apple trees and, from time to time, the lowing of the black and white bullocks in the pasture.

From our well-situated home base, we took easy and delightful day trips to The Rock of Cashel and the Glen of Aherlow, The Cliffs of Moher, the the Aran Islands and Killarney National Park. We also loved our time spent in the local area--mountain biking in the Ballyhoura Mountains and visiting Loch Gur where we hiked and explored the ruins including an impressive, ancient stone circle.

While I could go on and on about our extraordinary stay at Flemingstown House, I am at a loss for words to express our deep appreciation for our host, Imelda Sheedy King. Her wise, caring and charming presence touched every one of us and imbued our dream-come-true- visit to Ireland with a special Irish magic we will always remember.

Our stay here was fantastic!!!

  • 5 of 5

Our stay here at Flemingstown House was wonderful. This was my first experience in booking a house internationally. I was a bit nervous but went ahead anyway. Imelda was just wonderful. Everything that she told us and the description on the Home Away web site was just as she described it. We were greeted with a warm welcome and a wonderful spread of meats, cheeses, crackers and fruit. The fireplaces were lit and the house was warm and inviting. We were so pleased with everything about the house. It was clean, neat, well furnished and well maintained. Everything worked just as you would expect. The kitchen was well equipped and we cooked at least 4 different nights without any issues. The grocery is close by so it is easy to get the items you need. We stayed in this home for several specific reasons. First it was large enough to accommodate our party which was 10-11 depending on the day, for most of the trip. It was perfectly located for us to sight see. We went to the Dingle Peninsula, Waterford, Cork, Limerick, Straffan, 5 different castles, and many wonderful small towns. It was easy to return and make our own dinner instead of eating out every night. Also we made our own breakfast each day and the kitchen was wonderful to work in. We were very glad for the rural setting which provided us with a quiet and serene place to just relax in the evening. I can easily and enthusiastically recommend this home as a great place to be when you want to come and visit the country of Ireland. Can't wait to return and explore more of Ireland.

A five star ranking is not enough...

  • 5 of 5

Almost every year we (a group of five couples) rent a house somewhere in Europe and spend a week resting or travelling in the immediate area. I can state with confidence (backed by the unanimous vote of my friends) that nowhere else in our 15 years experience was the lodging of such high quality, the hospitality so grand, and at the same time the atmosphere so home-like. We cannot thank Imelda enough for her efforts, her kindness, and for so meticulously taking care of all our needs, large and small. Add to that the beauty and tranquility of the countryside, and you find it really difficult to leave….

Fabulous Irish Experience!

  • 5 of 5

We have just returned to the States following a lovely one week stay at Flemingstown House. It was a vacation with my 4 siblings and their spouses. I had been eyeing Flemingstown House for several years with the thought of renting it one day for just this occasion. The idea of five ensuite bedrooms was most appealing, but the real selling point was the beauty of the home itself. As many reviews have already stated, the photos were "spot on". The coziness of the home despite its size was another selling point. There was plenty of room for everyone to spread out, but still feel connected to each other.

The location of the home was another bonus. It is located perfectly to tour southwest Ireland. And after a long day of touring, it was great to come home to our beautiful house.

I know the other reviews have all mentioned Imelda and I cannot agree more with their thoughts about our hostess. She was easy to communicate with the months before our trip and very informative. Mainly though, she was a warm and welcoming presence when we arrived, and ,anytime afterward if information or advice was needed. She was very respectful of our privacy and only appeared when needed to answer a question or two. She was a gem!

We continued our tour in Ireland to the Wicklow Mountains and Dublin, but the highlight for me was our stay in Flemingstown House. Beautiful home in the lovely Irish countryside.
