Overview

County Westmeath House Rental Photos and Description

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, 1-6pm. 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 2010' 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.

Una Weir purchased this house in 1850

june stay at Weirs

  • 5 of 5
Denis and I had a wonderful time at the Weirs. They were very welcoming, helpful and made us feel like we never wanted to leave. The accomodations were very good, the location perfect for touring around and the village was ideal for a visit to Ireland. We loved being able to get to know some of the locals and enjoyed listening to the impromptu singing in the Pub. The food in the restaurant was top of the line. I would recommend them to everyone.

Three times within one year

  • 5 of 5
Now at the end of October I go for the third time to Weirs in Multyfarnham, this speaks just for itself.
Many thanks to Una and Pat for everything. I come back with pleasure, because I feel fine in the house as well as in the Pub over and over again.
Really good and kindly stuff in the Restaurant/Pub and also food and drink was always very tasty.
Besides, I've never had a Pub so close to my accommodation :-D

There are many "stones" to find in the area around, if one is interested in :-)

I am glad on it to see again everybody at the end of October.

Many greetings at all (especially to Max)
cu soon Michel

Fantastic holiday already planning our next visit!

  • 5 of 5
Fantastic rural location situated in a picturesque village next door to Weirs Restaurant and bar, other restaurants are available. The excellent food, great staff and friendly locals meant we were more than happy to eat there every night but we also had the option of cooking as the accommodation was like a home from home with fully fitted kitchen and all creature comforts you might need plus a lovely private garden. Great location to explore the lake district of Ireland and still only an hour from Dublin airport. The best bit though was meeting Pat and Una who were the ultimate hosts, who are happy to help you with anything you ask. Thanks again Pat for taking us out fishing to a spot I would never have found myself.

Best place to stay when on vacation

  • 5 of 5
Pat and Una are amazing hosts. The property was the perfect home away from home. It had everything we needed and then some. We definitely plan on staying here again. I am thankful we found a location with honest owners who took genuine interest in making our stay comfortable and enjoyable. Everything here was better than expected. Thank you so much for your hospitality!

Cozy cottage

  • 5 of 5
Our week in the cottage was the highlight of our trip. The pictures don't do it justice. It is an extremely charming and cozy place to stay. the location is ideal for touring the midlands of Ireland. The Rock of Cashel, Clonmacnoise and Trim Castle along with many other sites are an easy day trip away. Multifarnham is a quiet country village with beautiful scenic views wherever you look.
The cottage itself is well equipped, (loved the towels), and only a few steps from a fantastic pub and restaurant. The food is ever so good, the best sirloin I've ever had, and the hospitality and warmth of Pat and Una are even better. They make you feel at home from the start and are extremely helpful and knowledgeable about the area. Thanks to Pat's help and guidance we were able to go places we would never have found using a guide book.
My only fear is that too many people will discover this fantastic spot and it won't be available for our next trip to Ireland.
I would highly recommend it to anyone who wants to get away from the bigger cities and enjoy the peace and tranquility of rural Ireland,

A Beautiful Converted Barn in a Beautiful Village

  • 5 of 5
We stayed here for a week using it as a base, it was very easy to find, just off the main road. It is a beautiful converted barn that is very spacious and clean and has everything you would need, even down to reading material, local guides and towels. The pub (which is right in front of the barn) offers first rate food and drink and the hospitality was excellent. The hosts, Pat and Una, were always willing to help in any way they could. The train station is a short drive away (about 5 miles) and offers a good service to Dublin as well as other parts of the country. The village itself has an idyllic Friary you are welcome to explore along with several walks with stunning views of the nearby lakes. We were unlucky enough to be staying here in the rain and cold, however the heating was excellent and while inside we didn't feel the cold one bit.

Highly recommended, 5/5.

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..
