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.

Ireland of the Mind

  • 5 of 5

The Book of Kells may be one of the Irish treasures of Western Civilization but Imelda Sheehy-Smith and Flemingstown House should rank right up there. Radiating Celtic graciousness, Imelda opened up “Flemingstown” her lovely country house to us. After a an orientation meeting, she handed the keys over to us saying that the house was ours for the duration of our visit. She made herself available for house questions and travel concerns,but said that she would enter only at our invitation on future visits.

Flemingstown itself is a reflection of the openess and warmth of its owner. The grounds are buccolic and lovingly maintained and each ensuite bedroom was even better than the on-line views. There were 10 travelers in our band of friends and the well-appointed beautifully organized kitchen made meal preparation both easy and a pleasure.

Our hostess put no limits upon us in the house, and there were multiple sitting rooms and suny spaces for solitude or conviviality. My husband I are seasoned travelers who frequent local B and B’s and country Inns on our trips, and Imela and Flemingstown are in the Pantheon of the “Great Ones”

Beautiful, roomy country estate and well equiped

  • 5 of 5

We rented the Flemingstown House for a week with friends and had a great time. It was such a peaceful, convenient, and relaxing base station while we explored Ireland. The owner/manager was extremely friendly and helpful but not intrusive. A herd of grazing cows nearby enhanced the experience and ambience. I would wholeheartedly recommend this place and would return.

A perfect place to stay

  • 5 of 5

We travelled as a large group so this beautiful house with its lovely bedrooms all with ensuite bathrooms was perfect for us. The common spaces - a gourmet kitchen with every appliance and kitchen gadget one could need, informal and more formal dining areas and living rooms made for a memorable visit for all of us. It really felt like home! Grounds are beautiful and location works well as a home base for seeing western Ireland. Imelda, the owner, could not have been more helpful. Would go back in a heartbeat and recommend enthusiastically.

Highly Recommended

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I with our four adult children had a delightful visit to Flemingstown House recently. Imelda was warm and welcoming, inviting us to make the house our own. She very generously stocked frig and pantry so we had breakfast and lunch for the next day. The house and grounds are beautiful, and located perfectly for a stop at Rock of Cashel enroute from Dublin, and day trips to Adare for falconry at Adare Manor (which proved to be a highlight of our trip!), Limerick where we spent a rainy afternoon at Dolan’s Pub, Kenmare for coasteering through Eclipse Ireland, a drive around the Ring of Kerry, Killarney and the national park, lovely walks, runs and mountain biking in the Ballyhoura Mountains, and a ramble around the quaint village of Kilmallock. Thank you, Imelda, for a comfortable and memorable stay! D and J Quinn, Chicago IL June 2016
