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.

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.

the Total Rural Irish Experience

  • 5 of 5

Awesome time in a 250 year old 4 bedroom farmhouse! On arrival Thomas Cummins gave us the history of the house he had grown up in. We were greeted by 7 Holstein calves at the entrance to the farm. Your stay should include a Tuesday night if at all possible: we rode 4 miles with Thomas to a home where we experienced an evening of traditional Irish music. 6 accordians, two banjoes, 2 guitars, harmonica, violin, spoons and a traditional drum! Each highly, capable musician had a turn(3 times around) to lead out with a song and the others knew how to join in! I was able to sing Amazing Grace to the tune of the House of the Rising Sun. We had a nice day trip to the Cliffs of Moher, the Burren rock formations and the Cashel Castle.

the 3 nights here was a real highlight of our 9 days on the Emerald Isle!

Awesome Farmhouse and Hospitality!!!

  • 5 of 5

The farmhouse was super easy to find with the GPS coordinate points that I was given. Plus there were also signs to follow as we got closer. Upon arrival the owner Tom meet us and showed us around the house. The house was very clean and homey with everything that a traveler could desire. There was also a welcome pack with milk, eggs, bread, butter, and other goodies for us. It was so thoughtful of our hosts to provide us with these items. All of the bedrooms are on the first level except 1 which is in a loft. This makes the house accessible for elderly or disabled. Everything about the home was welcoming, there was movies, games, and books if we decided to not go out. There was also bikes to ride if we wanted. One thing that I really enjoyed was the walks that were right from the house. The location of the house is close to all kinds of attractions such as the Swiss Cottage, the Rock of Cashel, and many more. Our host could not have been more wonderful. Tom talked to us about our interests and then made suggests about things for us to do and see. He also made arrangements for us to see a horse farm, a peat operations, and local music. We had an amazing stay at the Farmhouse and our only regret was that our stay was not longer.

I would highly recommend the farmhouse, it was the one of the best rental houses that I have ever stayed at.

Carrigmore

  • 5 of 5

When people ask me about my trip to Ireland just after Christmas, I tell them it was cold, dark, rainy, and perfect. Even with the less than ideal weather conditions, we were able to do nearly everything we set out to do and each night came home to a warm, cozy, and welcoming home in the Carrigmore Farmhouse. Tom and Tina are the most welcoming hosts and the farmhouse is set up to anticipate your every need. Warm blankets for bedtime, wifi, the correct adaptors for those of us who brought the wrong ones, plenty of informative books for all our wildlife questions, a choice of books and movies for fun entertainment on less active days, a supply of food and drink, and plenty of wood and coal for the fire, plus Tom's expertise at stoking the wood burning stove to dry out our wet coats. It was a trip I would do again!

Authentic farmhouse with all amenities of home: warm, comfortable and welcoming.

  • 5 of 5

We were welcomed to Carrigmore Farm personally by Tom and dog Lucy the day of our arrival, our first visit to Ireland. The fires were lit and the home toasty warm. A selection of food to fill our belly's was available and there were fresh flowers in the entry surrounded by a plethora of information about local and not so local attractions. The bird feeders were filled outside the kitchen window and the beds were comfy and warm.

The first evening we were Tom's guests to a local home to experience an evening of Irish music. Amazing! We had our 20 and 17y/o daughters with us and they were skeptical about staying in the Farmhouse, but after the evening of music and getting to know Tom, they were sold. Even more so after finding the hair drier and curling iron as we forgot there was a difference in POWER and plugs.

Tom and his lovely wife provided guidance as to how to use our time efficiently in our attempts to do it all in 6 days - which of course is impossible. We had directions printed for us for day trips and suggestions as to the best order of experiences. We had wonderful evenings of discussion at the table and left feeling well cared for and like we had made friends for life. Thank you Tom and Tina for making our experience in Ireland even better than we anticipated! We would suggest this home to all our friends and family and home to return ourselves in the not to distant future.
