About Mary Flynn

We have been farming on this property since 1973. We have a large dairy herd and all their followers. The property is situated in the farmyard and there are farming activities taking place throughout the day. Guests are welcome to view the milking cows (children must be accompanied at all times).

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 Feddans

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

Mouse droppings and dead fly!

  • 1 of 5

House was very hard to find and when we arrived we discovered it had mouse droppings on the settees and over the floor and in the drawers. Dead fly in the fridge too and cobweb full of dead flies on living room door. We refused to stay in the property and had to travel home which meant we weren't home until 4am exhausted and the break we were all looking forward to was ruined. I would not recommend this holiday let to anyone and advise people to stay away from it. It was a complete disaster. The owner didn't even contact us the next day to see if we'd got home alright or to apologise.

Hospitality, history and nature combined!

  • 5 of 5

Nell's House is a great base for excursions all over the south of Ireland. We had two fabulous weeks of historical excursions, hiking tours in the mountains, seaside adventures and lots of other activities and always loved to come home to the lovingly restored and well appointed farmhouse, relaxed in the hot tub and enjoyed the fresh milk. It was interesting for the children to be able to see the cows and the milking process. Thank you Gerald and Mary for your hospitality and for sharing this gem with us!

Irish Countryside

  • 4 of 5

Pros: Interior of the house was roomy and clean. This property was centrally located to Kilkenny, Waterford and Cashel. Gerald was very friendly upon our arrival and showed us what we needed to know to use the utilities. Quiet, secluded farm atmosphere. Also, Mary provided us with needed power adapters:) and was very responsive to any and all inquiries before and during our stay.

Cons: Not well marked--there is a place at the end of the drive where I believe a hanging sign used to be--it would be extremely helpful to replace this. Also the house is located a short distance from two numbered roads. If these two were in place we could have found the house on our own rather than losing over an hour trying to find it. One of the reasons we chose this property over several others we were considering was the hot tub. I know things happen, but it broke the day before we arrived and it was quite disappointing. We had hoped to relax a bit more at the house, but instead made plans away from the property.

Owner's Response: Dear Kelly Thank you for your comments. The sign was blown down in high winds and has since been reinstated. I am sorry you had difficulty finding the property, guests have my phone number to call if they can't find the way. It was unfortunate that the hot tub was out of action during your stay but breakages happen and I hope that it did not spoil your holiday too much.
