Each bed is dressed with white linen and dressing gowns supplied. The ensuite bathroom has a walk in shower making it suitable for the less mobile. Enclosed private garden to the front of the house with picnic table and chairs and a private patio area at the rear with hot tub, patio table and chairs and BBQ.

About Mary Flynn

We have been farming on this property since 1973. We have a large dairy herd and all their followers. In December 2014 we have been awarded the overall award for the most interactive event held during Heritage Week having been runners up in 2013..http://www.irishtv.ie/category/ireland/munster/waterford/

Programme 15

We have a great interest in how people lived long ago, how they worked, how they ate, how they played.

Mary Flynn purchased this farmhouse in 2009

Why Mary Flynn chose Ireland

This property is over 200 years old and was refurbished in 2008/09. It belonged to Gerard's Aunt Nell, hence the name Nell's Farm House

What makes this farmhouse unique

The house is situated on a working dairy farm at the foot of the Comeragh Mountains. The Mountains contain many beautiful lakes and maps are provided for the various walks. The house was renovated to include many modern features such as fitted kitchen, power showers but while still retaining the old features such as shutters on the windows, high ceilings, the open fire.

Cozy farmhouse with friendly cows

  • 5 of 5

Our family of 5 had a comfortable and enjoyable stay at the house in a green and lush part of the country. Mary and Ger are very accommodating and delightful to talk to, providing information on the area as well as the farm. This is a working dairy farm, so there are lots of cows (and calves when we were there) right out the front door, great for animal loving kids. The calves are timid but friendly.

The house is centrally located within a 30-45 minute drive of many southeastern sights such as Cashel, Waterford, Kilkenny and the coast. It's a little hard to find at first until you learn to ignore the Sat Nav (not recommended for Ireland). This is a beautiful and perhaps less tourists part of the country, highly recommended.

A Wonderfully Unique Setting - A Step Back in Tim

  • 5 of 5

Our stay at Nell's Farmhouse was far too short! We loved everything about it! The old farmhouse with it's huge rooms, crisp white linens, fluffy towels. We really enjoyed the enclosed patio and hot tub!

Our grand daughter loved the little calves - so sweet with their huge eyes!

We would love to visit the farm again and highly recommend Nell's Farmhouse to anyone looking for a relaxed, peaceful holiday.

LIKE A DREAM!!!

  • 5 of 5

What can I say.....Nell's Farm House exceeded our expectations. From the moment I made contact with Mary it was seamless. Every time I emailed her she responded within an hour or less. My only regret is that we couldn't stay longer. We were on the go and looked forward to getting back "home" both nights. We will be back one day with our bags of groceries, ready to settle in and enjoy farm living. The house has everything you need to prepare meals. It's very rural, so have some basic when you arrive.

Mary and Jer were the perfect hosts!!!

Thank you,

Vicki and Ted

An absolutely amazing and perfect getaway

  • 5 of 5

We could not have enjoyed our time more at Nells Farm House. The house itself was gorgeous, spacious, and very comfy for 4 us staying there. We were able to cook dinner in the kitchen and liked the fact that there were two showers (the showers are very modern, and one does not have a door which can cause water to leak onto the rest of the bathroom floor, only a minor inconvenience). The hot tub in the back was SO NICE after a long day of sight seeing, and to have the ambiance of a hot tub, under the stars, with the sounds of dairy cows all around, in Ireland....that is something you cannot experience anywhere else. Ger was very attentive to our needs, and incredibly welcoming. We would definitely book Nells again, and highly recommend staying here to anyone!!

A lovely rural retreat!

  • 5 of 5

We had a lovely time at Nells Farmhouse. We were greeted warmly by Mary and Ger and from the moment we stepped in we felt at home. The fire was roaring and the farmhouse with its charm and character felt homely.

The hot tub was an added bonus and the boys (5 & 2 years old) loved spending time in there.

The Farmhouse was lovely and clean and Mary and Ger could not do enough for us. Fresh milk after watching the cows be milked and firewood on demand added to the excellent experience we had here.

We would definitely recommend and will be booking again soon.

Thank you to Mary and Ger.

Best wishes

Lives up to the many glowing reviews. A lovely cosy cottage in the country.

  • 5 of 5

Beautiful little cottage. We loved waking up to the cows. Peaceful and vibrantly alive at the same time. The hot tub was luxurious, even in the winter rain. The cottage was warm and cosy. The beds super comfortable. Generous, attentive but unabtrusive hosts. Highly recommend this lovely little place. Wish we'd had more time to explore the stunning surrounding nature.
