Overview

About the property

Self-catering house to the rear of an old world pub and Award Winning Restaurant

Situated in the lake county, (good fishing area) an hour from Dublin, this is the ideal spot to relax or use as a base to travel from. Golf is big, with 5 golf courses within half an hour travelling distance. The house, once a barn, is to the rear of an Old World Pub, in a quite village. Our restaurant open's Wed-Sat 12.30 -8.30pm & Sunday, 1-8pm. The house is decorated quite modernly and we will do our best to help you enjoy your holiday.

We have just received a Bridgestone Award 'Best in Ireland 2017' so we are delighted with that.

'While too many bars serve peanuts and Sky Sports, this rural pub does fine food instead' writes TOM DOORLEY - IRISH TIMES

'not serving rare and exquisite dainties, it's serving the sort of food that most of us eat on a daily basis, but it's doing it very well. If we've arrived at a point where wholesome, well-made food can be found in pubs in small villages and towns around the country, then we have a reason to celebrate. IRISH INDEPENDENT

About Una Weir

The house is in the family since sometime in the 1800's, and until about 60 years ago it was a bakery for the local townspeople. The picture is us, the family with Johnny Depp, he came for lunch in November 2013. This was major excitement for us and the national media also. He said he'll be back because he thoroughly enjoyed his lunch and the relaxed atmosphere. When you sample a little of our life and ways you will understand the attraction to our village and our house.

Una Weir purchased this house in 1850

Why Una Weir chose Mullingar

Originally the house was a bakery but when we came to live here, the house was a store for the beers for the bar. It took three refurbishments to make it what it is today. It is cosy, yet spacious, and decorated in a contemporary style but has some of the features of the old building. The view out the back window is the yard and gardens. There are old stone barns with red painted doors.

What makes this house unique

The house is at the back of the restaurant and bar, so you don't have to leave the property to get to bed after your dinner or spending time with the locals in the bar. The atmosphere in the bar is unpredictable in the sense that it might be quiet with just the turf fire to keep you company or there could be stories from one of the locals to entertain you. On Friday night (most weeks) there is music in the bar, where you are welcome to join in if you wish. It is a mix of sing-a-long, country, blues, pop and some Irish folk songs also.

Multyfarnham is a quaint rural village, set in the lake county of Ireland. From Dublin heading west, you take the M4 west, then the N4 west. You pass the exits for Mullingar and you see Lough Owel on your left. A mile past there, you will see the sign post for Multyfarnham. There is a right hand turn, (at the Covert Pub), take it and keep left at the little round about. Less than 2 miles from there is Multyfarnham. When you enter the Village, Weirs Pub is in front of you. Our bordering counties are Meath, Cavan, Longford, Roscommon, Offaly and Kildare.

The area is very scenic and has plenty to offer. In our village there is a Franscian Friary dating back to the 11th century, the oldest working Franscian Friary in the world. Wheather you want to relax or have historical interests, want to go fishing or golfing, this area is ideally situated. Dublin is an hour away, where you can shop till you drop, go to the theatre or visit the many attractions our Capital City has to offer..

Perfect holiday retreat!

  • 5 of 5

This was our second stay in Una and Pat Weir's delightful modern cottage which looks out on Una's beautiful gardens. The comfort and warmth provided by the cottage, the Weirs themselves and the delightful village of Multyfarnham is a holiday in itself. The location also served as a great base for touring all corners of Ireland which we did on both our visits. In addition we feasted on delicious dinners at Weir's restaurant and managed to lift a few pints in the pub!

A great week with wonderful people

  • 5 of 5

We spent a week at Weirs in Multyfarnum, Una and Pat spent a long time with us describing where to go and what to see. The accommodation was just great. The food in the restaurant was excellent, we could not have expected more from our stay.

What a fabulous place to stay, with genuine lovely people.

  • 5 of 5

If you want an authentic taste of country living in a very special place then do book this cottage, you won't be disappointed.

We stayed here for 5 days and had a wonderful time in a lovely cottage that has everything you could need for your stay. From 2 sofas (always a bonus) to masses of hanging space, ladies; a huge garden with it's own stream and pond to secure parking for your car, this cottage is brilliant.

Una and Pat are brilliantly laid back hosts who are so welcoming and genuinely friendly and certainly make you feel at home. They both have a wealth of knowledge about the surrounding areas and are always happy to give you advice on where the best places are to visit while you are holidaying there.

The staff in the bar and restaurant are great too where nothing is too much trouble, they definitely look after the visitors to both the bar and the restaurant really well. The food is fantastic too, you will definitely enjoy eating here - I know we did!

Lastly I have to mention Max, the gorgeous dog who lives with Una and Pat. He is just lovely and always greets you with a wag of his tail and loves being rubbed. if you are dog phobic, don't worry he will eave you alone if you tell him to - I'm not so had a great time with him.

Overall, I have no hesitation in recommending this cottage as a fabulous place to stay with warm, genuine people who will make your stay memorable!

Great Hospitality

  • 5 of 5

Roundstone is a beautiful little village and the little house, behind the pub, was everything that was advertised. Pat and Una are perfect hosts, the house is is lovely and provides everything that one could need. A pub with great food and beer located five steps away is a great bonus. Highly recommended

Wonderful rural vacation get away

  • 5 of 5

Wonderful, spacious apartment with everything you need for a relaxing vacation. Location is central to many attractions, within and hour of Galway and Dublin. The hosts are very friendly and offered good suggestions of local places to visit. Truly, it was so comfortable there, we felt like we were in our own home. And they have a lively bar and restaurant just in front of residence. Cant wait to come back and would highly recommend to all. Thank you Una and Pat.The Lafon family

our stay in Westmeath

  • 4 of 5

We were very comfortable for our two night stay. Having the best restaurant in the area (run by Una and Pat) just a few steps away from our door was an incredible and unexpected bonus.
