Guestbook comments from the owner

Had the most wonderful family vacation at Carrigmore Farm. Tina and Tom Cummins were such a joy. The farm was perfect, the perfect location for our daily excurtion's around the beautiful Irish countryside. Tom and Tina were very helpful with their suggestions on destinations and driving directions. We felt right at home with the Cummins. We hope and pray that God will allow us to return to Ireland again someday in the future. We are so thankful for our new Irish friend's.

Many thanks to you.

Wonderful Place to Call Home

  • 5 of 5
From the moment my husband and I arrived at Carrigmore Farm we were pleased with the clean, old farm house that was furnished with everything imaginable for our stay. Our host provided a brief tour/tutorial for the house and laundry area upon arrival, and was happy to assist with suggestions of places to visit and directions as needed. Our host checked in with us each morning and requested feedback about what could be improved to enhance our stay. He was quick to thank us and act on our suggestions for improvements. We also appreciate that the house is flexible in regard to length of stay. Based on our itinerary we needed a place for only 5 nights, and luckily Carrigmore Farm was able to accommodate us. We would certainly recommend this lovely farm house when visiting Ireland!

A wonderful experience in life on a farm in Irelan

  • 5 of 5
From the moment that we arrived at the farm we were very impressed with the clean, old farm house that provided all our needs for a relaxing stay. Our host was happy to assist with suggestions of where to go and even took us to the local pub and a music jamming session playing Irish music. Certainly would recommend this place to stay when visiting Ireland.

Much, much more than expected. Fantastic Host!

  • 5 of 5
You'll be hard-pressed to find a better host and more memorable place to stay than Tom & Tina Cummins' guest house at Carrigmore Farms. We were looking for a home that would provide bedrooms for all 4 of us. There was plenty of room of course - and the farm is central to visiting the many beautiful sites nearby. We really loved the idea of being on a working farm and enjoying the Irish countryside and culture. You won't find any tourists here, instead, you will find incredible hospitality and generosity of spirit from your hosts. The house was clean and everything it claimed to be and more. What really distinguishes this rental home from others we have been in, is the lengths our host went to in order to make us feel not only comfortable, but more like family. Tom is the consummate host and now holds a special place in our hearts. He'll take great care of you during your stay and make you feel like you're the only people in the world. He goes far beyond the call of duty to make your visit memorable. The kitchen is well-furnished and updated, and the family room has an inviting fireplace which we enjoyed immensely. He also has a good collection of DVD's (though we didn't watch a single one!) Just know you're in good hands and in for the time of your life. Thank you Tom and Tina and God Bless you both.

Cosy, well equipped cottage

  • 5 of 5
Very comfy cottage for family of 4. Loved the wood fires and Tom taught my son to light them when we arrived so that was his job for our stay. Nice times had sitting around the kitchen table chatting and in the lounge room. Beds comfortable and slept well. Nice to watch the beautiful little birds in the garden.Tom and Tina were wonderful and took great care to make sure we had everything we needed. Tom took us to a traditional Irish music night which was fantastic. Good wifi connection. Kids went for a ride on bikes which they enjoyed. Would like to go back and stay longer.

Thank you so much -Tina and Tom - for making our summerhollydays in Ireland so special. You made us all feel welcome from the first day. Told us a lot about your country - sights to see and other important things. A special thank to Tina for your lovely cakes.
The house was perfekt - there was everything wee needed. Especially the barbecue was lovely during the warmest summer in Ireland. And the wi-fi was a hit for our teenagers.
We went to see Ring of Kerry, Kylemore Abbey, the Burren, the Aran Islands and the Blarney Castle. Everything in one day trips.
Dont forget to see the nearby cahir Castle and cashel castle - And to have a walk in the Fields around the farm.

Thank you so much for making our hollydays perfekt.
