Hi, we're Donal and Aileen and we're lucky enough to own this beautiful and historic home. We live near Cahir in Tipperary, about 40 minutes away from the house and have two beautiful little children - Tom and Iris.
Aileen purchased this house in 2006
Why Aileen chose County Tipperary
The Old Parochial House came up for sale just before we were married in August 2006. We both grew up within 3 miles of the property and knew that this was a once in a lifetime opportunity to purchase such a special property. It had served as the parish Priest's house for many years so was one of the most iconic and fine houses around.
What makes this house unique
This is a stunning listed period home with carved staircase and two original stained glass windows. The rooms are huge with 13ft ceilings and most have fire places. It is situated on 1.5 acres of mature grounds with old apple trees and stone walls. The King's River flows by the bottom of the garden and because it's just 10 miles for the M8 motorway it is perfectly located for exploring all of Southern Ireland.
Guestbook comments from the owner
What an amazing house to spend our 40th Wedding Anniversary! Together with all our family and came as a complete surprise. We had no idea where we were going. The "banquet" on Saturday night was something we will never forget. The space in the house is so suitable for extended families. Thank you so much.
