Ireland House Rental Photos and Description

Self-catering house to the rear of an old world pub and Award Winning Restaurant

Situated in the lake county, (good fishing area) an hour from Dublin, this is the ideal spot to relax or use as a base to travel from. Golf is big, with 5 golf courses within half an hour travelling distance. The house, once a barn, is to the rear of an Old World Pub, in a quite village. Our restaurant open's Wed-Sat 12.30 -8.30pm & Sunday, 1-6pm. The house is decorated quite modernly and we will do our best to help you enjoy your holiday.

We have just received a Bridgestone Award 'Best in Ireland 2010' so we are delighted with that.

'While too many bars serve peanuts and Sky Sports, this rural pub does fine food instead' writes TOM DOORLEY - IRISH TIMES

'not serving rare and exquisite dainties, it's serving the sort of food that most of us eat on a daily basis, but it's doing it very well. If we've arrived at a point where wholesome, well-made food can be found in pubs in small villages and towns around the country, then we have a reason to celebrate. IRISH INDEPENDENT

About Una Weir

The house is in the family since sometime in the 1800's, and until about 60 years ago it was a bakery for the local townspeople. The picture is us, the family with Johnny Depp, he came for lunch in November 2013. This was major excitement for us and the national media also. He said he'll be back because he thoroughly enjoyed his lunch and the relaxed atmosphere. When you sample a little of our life and ways you will understand the attraction to our village and our house.

Una Weir purchased this house in 1850

Why Una Weir chose Ireland

Originally the house was a bakery but when we came to live here, the house was a store for the beers for the bar. It took three refurbishments to make it what it is today. It is cosy, yet spacious, and decorated in a contemporary style but has some of the features of the old building. The view out the back window is the yard and gardens. There are old stone barns with red painted doors.

What makes this house unique

The house is at the back of the restaurant and bar, so you don't have to leave the property to get to bed after your dinner or spending time with the locals in the bar. The atmosphere in the bar is unpredictable in the sense that it might be quiet with just the turf fire to keep you company or there could be stories from one of the locals to entertain you. On Friday night (most weeks) there is music in the bar, where you are welcome to join in if you wish. It is a mix of sing-a-long, country, blues, pop and some Irish folk songs also.

june stay at Weirs

  • 5 of 5

Denis and I had a wonderful time at the Weirs. They were very welcoming, helpful and made us feel like we never wanted to leave. The accomodations were very good, the location perfect for touring around and the village was ideal for a visit to Ireland. We loved being able to get to know some of the locals and enjoyed listening to the impromptu singing in the Pub. The food in the restaurant was top of the line. I would recommend them to everyone.

brilliant, relaxing Irish stay

  • 4 of 5

just back from a fantastic 10 days at this very comfortable lived in cottage that made us feel at home immediately. Loved having the freedom to do as we pleased. We especially loved the lovely huge garden that we could enjoy and were free to make use of the trampoline and absolutely loved Max the dog.

The cottage was fantastic!!! absolutely ideal for us and Una and Pat were great, and were always close at hand if we needed anything. The first thing we were told was "this is your cottage" and it certainly felt like it was our own. The cottage had everything we needed and was of a very high standard and was very clean.

The pub and restaurant were very handy and everyone was so friendly. The food in the restaurant was excellent.

Can't wait to go back

I am so grateful to have had this experience.

  • 5 of 5

The property is exactly as shown in pictures, only bigger! It is truly spacious, with lots of natural light, wonderful! The little town is quiet, friendly, and full of interesting opportunities. As a central location, I was able to see a great deal of the country and still come home in a day or two (if I wanted to stay over). The hostess was perfect! Una and her family are warm, welcoming, and ready to help in anything needed. I am an "old woman" who was traveling alone, and I could always rely on them to provide information, advice, whatever was necessary. (Even poor Patrick had to lend me his strength on a couple of occasions, interrupting his work to do for me, and he was delightful about it!) I can't say enough good things about this site. I am truly grateful for having been there.

Better than home

  • 5 of 5

Our hosts describe the property as "your house" and it felt like home for a week. Clean, spacious and comfortable. Fabulous food only two steps away, excellent friendly atmosphere in the pub from Una, Pat and the locals. We could not fault our stay, nothing is a bother to Una or Pat and I would recommend, staying here to anyone. We did not hear any noise from the pub, but that could have been because of the exceptional night's sleep I was getting! There's no high life, but the Friday "live" entertainment was a blast. Multyfarnham is a quiet village and I am assured it's ideal for fishing. My partner will bring his gear next time. A small shop for provisions is just across the road and Mullingar is only 10 mins away. Thanks to all at Weirs.

What a great place to base an Ireland vacation

  • 5 of 5

On arrival we were immediately treated like family. Pat and Una are fantastic hosts who truly went out of their way to ensure we had a great stay. The house was clean and well outfitted, we found the location great for day-tripping to the Cliffs, Blarney and Wicklow. There is also a tremendous amount of great places close by. The pub has a welcoming atmosphere and the food is out of this world. I highly recommend staying here.

A lovely place. Wish we could have stayed longer.

  • 5 of 5

We stayed for three nights and really enjoyed our stay. Pat and Una were so helpful and friendly and went the extra mile to make our time in their cottage memorable. We picked Multyfarnham due to its proximity to the Dublin ferry port (an hour and a quarter) and to Slane Castle where we were going to a concert. We rang before travelling to ask about travelling and Una found out about the buses and bought our tickets for us. We had one meal in their restaurant (pork belly very nice) and spent another one in the bar, which again we can recommend for it's selection of beers and atmosphere. Having never been to the area Una made some excellent suggestions which we followed including Longcrew megalithic burial mound which we managed to go into. The cottage itself is self contained behind the pub and well laid out with a large lounge - kitchen-diner on the ground floor and large bedroom with bathroom to the first. It felt warm and cosy. Parking was off road at the back. We wish we had stayed longer and would definitely visit again if we went to Ireland for another holiday.

Multyfarnham is a quaint rural village, set in the lake county of Ireland. From Dublin heading west, you take the M4 west, then the N4 west. You pass the exits for Mullingar and you see Lough Owel on your left. A mile past there, you will see the sign post for Multyfarnham. There is a right hand turn, (at the Covert Pub), take it and keep left at the little round about. Less than 2 miles from there is Multyfarnham. When you enter the Village, Weirs Pub is in front of you. Our bordering counties are Meath, Cavan, Longford, Roscommon, Offaly and Kildare.

The area is very scenic and has plenty to offer. In our village there is a Franscian Friary dating back to the 11th century, the oldest working Franscian Friary in the world. Wheather you want to relax or have historical interests, want to go fishing or golfing, this area is ideally situated. Dublin is an hour away, where you can shop till you drop, go to the theatre or visit the many attractions our Capital City has to offer..

Other Activities: Bowling
