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. ttractions

Tom was a great host and so helpful and friendly. He went overboard in providing all we needed.
Relaxing, peaceful and stress-free
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!
A wonderful experience of rural life in Ireland
Although the place takes a little time to get to, Google maps worked great and it was a wonderful place to stay. Tom is an engaging host and a good example of Irish hospitality. Tina provided us with lots of breakfast food and the house was very comfortable. Tom suggested Moore’s pub in Doon on Tuesday night as they have live Irish music and we would highly recommend it. A great accommodation for anyone wanting to have a real experience of Ireland!
Excellent Farm House Rental
This was a great find; out and away from everything, yet close enough to explore many of Limerick, Tipperary, and Kerry attractions. The farmhouse was neat, clean and comfortable; and supplied with all the essentials needed, including a starter supply of coffee, milk, eggs, scones, and cookies. Thomas and Tina were very helpful at check-in, showing us around the house and grounds, and making suggestions on what to do and see. Many thanks!
Authenic Irish Experience
We had an amazing time in Ireland and a big part of the experience came from our accommodations. Thomas and Tina keep the farm house neatly cleaned and very homey. They had some food waiting for us (eggs, bread, fruit, milk) which was a Godsend since we got in so late at night. They also had a fire blazing in the stove which made us feel immediately at home. We awoke each morning to numerous beautiful birds outside the kitchen window tweeting at the bird feeder and a farmhouse full of activities (board games, books, movies, etc.) which was great since we had a couple of bad weather days. Thomas was a real resource for helping us navigate the local attractions and in planning for the changing winter weather. The invite to music night at the pub in Doon was one of the most memorable highlights of our trip. Thanks for a wonderful experience.
COZY, SPACIOUS, ABSOLUTELY LOVELY FAMILY HOME
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!
