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.

Cozy property, extraordinary hosts.

  • 5 of 5

Carrigmore Farm is in a fab location in the beautiful Tipperary countryside, but the best thing about it is it's hosts. Tom & Tina are lovely and charming; genuinely good people who gave us such a warm and enthusiastic welcome. We really enjoyed our visits with them, and their recommendations for what to see in the area were really appreciated. Oh - and, as they say, if Thomas Cummins invites you to go to music night, YOU GO!

Wonderful experience

  • 4 of 5

Just a note to say how much we enjoyed our stay at Carrigmore Farms. The Cummins family are lovely people. Their home is very comfortable and clean with all the amenities that you would ever need. Thank you for taking us to the wonderful night of traditional Irish music. We also appreciated your recommendations and directions on what to see, as well as your personally guided tours. We arrived home with a real appreciation for the people of Ireland. You are part of what made our trip & our 30th Wedding Anniversary special.

Sincerely,

Mason & Joan Gillan

Welcoming, comfy traditional Irish cottage.

  • 5 of 5

We were truly welcomed by Tom on our first night taking us to a music session and encouraging my husband to play guitar which he greatly enjoyed. Tom was able to recommend places to go and wanted to make sure we had a wonderful stay.

The house is ideal for a central location to many attractions we were able to visit Bunratty castle, Limerick, Tipperary, Cahir and many other sights all within 30-45 minuets.

The house is on a working farm which is just wonderful and plenty of walks around the farm to be had.

The cottage is a wonderful traditional Irish cottage and feels so homely. We did not lack for anything, it is more than equipped. The kitchen has everything you could need plus the added value of a bird table in view of the window to enjoy watching the birds. We especially enjoyed the living room with record player, evenings were lovely working through their vinyl collection and reading. The cottage also has more DVDs than extra vision, use of guitar and board games.

We only used the master bedroom but can say that the bed was extremely comfortable and we slept like logs.

If into photography the location is fantastic for the night sky, so clear and just a short walk fab views of the mountains.

So if you want a traditional Irish cottage experience with an owner who will make you very welcome and go above and beyond in order to make your stay very special, this is the place for you.

Wonderful Traditional Farmhouse!!

  • 5 of 5

Great stay in Tom & Tina's guesthouse for 3 nights! House was spotless and well stocked. Welcome package (eggs,milk,oj, & butter) was a nice touch. We toured Rock of Cashel (great guide - Ann), had a wonderful lunch in town at Feegans pub (chowder & Guiness). Visited Kilkenny (nice town - shopping & Smithwicks), Cliffs of Moher, and Bunratty Castle & Folk Polk (educational). Went to butcher in Doon and had steaks on the BBQ at the farmhouse. Laundry facilities on site came in handy. We met Lucy and Zero - Tom's dogs. Tom took us into Tipperary for a traditional music night at Kickham Pub. Great time & great music. Highly Recommend!

Thanks Jeff & Hilary

Wonderful farmhouse and hospitality

  • 5 of 5

My parents, son and daughter stayed at Carrigmore Farm for 6 nights in June 2016. The farmhouse has everything you could possibly want including books, games and DVD's and a lovely welcome pack of eggs, bread, milk etc. Tom was so helpful and really made the holiday for us with his great advice on where to visit and his tales of Ireland. The farmhouse was very clean and really homely and welcoming. The farmhouse was situated within distance of visiting lots of attractions. We would definitely recommend this farmhouse, it felt like home from home especially when Lucy the dog came to greet us.
