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.

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

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.

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.

THE PICTURES DO NOT DO IT JUSTICE.

  • 4 of 5
We were impressed by the house as soon as we walked in the front door. The
interior is beautiful and bright. We were particularly amazed by the substantial rooms and the huge bathrooms. The property was clean and well maintained. The welcome groceries that you provided were a very pleasant surprise.

The location is quiet and peaceful, but is an excellent base to travel all over the southern part of Ireland.

We really appreciated the referrals for places to eat. The food was great in all of the recommended spots. And the kitchen was very well equipped so it was easy to make dinner on the one night we chose to stay in.

We would definitely stay at the Old Parochial House again and would recommend it to a friend.

THE BEST HOUSE EVER!

  • 5 of 5
Our family stayed here for a week celebrating my parents 50th anniversary! It was perfect. There were 9 of us. Lots of room, nicely appointed, and the perfect base to see southern Ireland. I would and will recommend the Old Parochial House to everyone looking to rent a home in the Irish countryside, The owners were friendly and very approachable. The photos do not do justice to this beautiful house.

The Old Parochial House is located just 2 miles from the famous Famine Warhouse. During the great famine the Warhouse was the scene of the principal action of the 1848 Rebellion by the Young Irelanders. The house now exhibits the history of the Famine, mass emigration and the rebellion - admission is free.

Slievenamon, the most written about mountain in Ireland is just a 10 minute drive away. It offers an easy climb to a spectacular 360º view of just about all of Tipperary, Kilkenny and Waterford.

For walking enthusiasts three approved national loop walks are located within 5 miles of the Old Parochial House at Grange Crag and Lough Doire Bhile.

A 20 minute drive takes you to Cashel, home of the Rock of Cashel the most visited Heritage site in Ireland, the Bolton Library which houses the smallest book in Ireland and some great restaurants.

The medieval city of Kilkenny is less than 25 minutes away by car. Here you can explore ancient laneways, visit the majestic halls of Kilkenny castle, take in some shopping or enjoy a great night out.

Thurles, the birthplace of Ireland's national sport hurling is 18 miles away. If you don't catch a game in Semple Stadium you might like to spend some time shopping or just enjoying a pint with the locals in one of its many pubs.

One of Ireland's finest golf courses is just 30 miles away at Mount Juliet, Thomastown. The Jack Nicklaus designed course is a challenging championship course and is presented in beautiful condition throughout the year.
