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..

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.

Working Farm

  • 4 of 5

We had a lovely stay at Nell's Farm House in Rathgormack. The owner could not do enough to meet our needs. He was most helpful although really busy on the farm. It brought back childhood memories of farmyard noises. Would like to stay again in the future.

Loved the away from everything location. It was a little chilly during our stay but that made sitting by the fireplace when better. Mary was so sweet. Since we were celebrating our anniversary, she left a little surprise for us in the kitchen. I would definitely stay here again.

Cozy country home and working dairy farm.

  • 3 of 5

This home was a little hard to find but with our navigation device we found it. The house is what you would expect of a real Irish country home. We were comfortable and had plenty of room and comfortable beds. The kitchen needed some upgrading. The fresh milk was a wonderful treat. I had hoped to meet Mary as I had corresponded with her through VRBO but we didn't have the pleasure. Her husband Gerald greeted us during milking time and showed us around. We call our stay at Nell's Farmhouse " real Irish country living."

Very rural setting but comfortable. Mary and Nell were very nice and helpful regarding lost luggage

  • 2 of 5

Extremely hard to find even with GPS. Don't know if I would have found it if it wasn't for a nice lady who knew them and showed us where it was located. Comfortable furnishings. Sorry we didn't get a chance to sit on the back patio and use the hot tub. Could use a few more amenities and instructions on using the shower,etc. Small road leading to the farmhouse was very narrow with ruts. My car hit bottom several times.

Lovely property with everything you need for a relaxing holiday

  • 5 of 5

Quietly located property but we found it had easy access to lots of holiday activities such as great walking trails for all abilities, Dungarvan and Waterford, a waterfall and beaches within half hour drive and visitor attractions like the pretty steam railway at Kilmeaden and Mount Congreve gardens all within easy distance. The house was well furnished, clean and comfortable and the hot tub a definite bonus after a days walking in the Comeragh mountains. Loved our first visit to Ireland.
