About Denise Meagher
I am native to this part of Co. Tipperary. I grew up here in Killough, a few miles outside the town of Templemore. Many family names connect to this home - O Meachair/ Maher /Meagher but also Breen and Cahill and now my own precious family, Devine. I am married to Seosamh, and we have 3 young sons, Don, Joss and Étienne. We also have two pet Golden Retrievers, Mandjar (named after Mandurah, in Western Australia) and Venice. They do a little woofing - so guests be warned, but they are very lovable! I have a Ph.D. in Anthropology from NUIM but have been involved most of my life in different aspects of the Arts. I designed and managed my own café- boutique for a few years and have a huge interest in local Arts and culture; vintage fashion; costume jewellery, vernacular furniture. I love meeting new people and telling them about the area in which we live. I also like to cook and bake so a nice Irish soda bread awaits and, of course, a warm welcome.
Why Denise Meagher chose County Tipperary
You will love Greenville Cottage because of the traditional design which has not been tampered with, in respect for the vernacular architectural history of the house; the high ceilings in the mains rooms; the cosiness of the Loft Bedroom overlooking the Aula. The sounds of birds and nature all around and the proximity to the well known Devil's Bit Mountain, make this home special in many ways. There is a sense of being part of an Irish home when at Greenville Cottage - our children play in our private garden next door and our dogs always have a wagging tail of welcome for guests. Key also to the location is the proximity to the motorways - you will be less than 2 hours from Dublin, Cork, Limerick and Kilkenny - all key historical places to visit while in Ireland. You can still return to the comfort of Greenville Cottage for your evening meal and relaxation.
What makes this Cottage unique
Many friends have stayed at Greenville Cottage over the years, and all have spoken of the wonderful atmosphere, the charm, and the history of the house which exudes from the stone walls, and the pieces of furniture that come from Denise & Seosamh's ancestry. The house is also a tribute to local artists, photographers, and craftspeople, all of whom are friends of your hosts. This unique aspect would be of particular interest to visitors interested in interior design and the visual arts.
