Our neighbourhood is not a natural tourist destination, nor is it promoted as a tourist destination. It is quite a hidden gem… almost a secret gem. So we are delighted to receive the guests who do come our way.
We have met some really lovely people… as has been said so often by guests “we came as strangers and left as friends”. Perhaps, it is our listing, our reviews, or our location that attracts like-minded people! We’ve had people from all parts of the world come stay, and many the lively conversation that’s been had over the kitchen table at dinner.
We often wish we could both persuade more people to come, and persuade those who do come to stay for longer. The #MagicalMidlands has so much to offer – magnificent historical destinations; activities like cycling, hiking, fishing and walking; and, of course, beautiful scenery.
We like to think that by being hosts we are helping our community, bringing tourists to this wonderful part of Ireland, boosting the local economy just a little bit… and, of course, introducing guests to the ‘social dancing’ on Friday nights – always a big hit.
If you are planning a trip to middle Ireland, do stay a while.
We are delighted and thankful that bookings have started to come in for this year. And, now Minister Heather Humphries, has launched a new Action Plan for Rural Ireland that promises a 12% increase in tourism for 2017…. well, we’ll see…..
As St. Patrick’s Day will give us a long weekend this year, we thought we’d do a special offer to encourage you all to come and visit the #MagicalMidlands. As we are quite remote, we give guests the option of joining us in the kitchen for dinner. You will see from our listing that we’re not bad cooks, so good food is guaranteed!
- Option 1: 2 nights bed and breakfast, and dinner on both evenings at €120 per person – and a bottle of wine with dinner each evening.
- Option 2: 2 nights bed and breakfast, and dinner on one evening at €95 per person – and a bottle of wine.
There you go folks…. 2 rooms available…. who’s coming?
