“Absolutely brilliant”
Reviewed 8 May 2014 for a stay in April 2014

We stayed here whilst we were in Ireland for our wedding and found it an amazing place. The house itself is gorgeous with everything you would need - it's been done very well! Has that cottage feel but with all modern amenities on the inside. It's cosy and warm and really feels like a home. In fact, it really was a home away from home! I could have stayed even longer :) The grounds are lovely as well and we were blessed with beautiful weather to enjoy it. The owners were great to deal with, it was easy to find and in a perfect location for what we needed. We had a barbeque, walked around the grounds, soaked in the bathtub - the pictures of the place are great, but the reality is even better! Cannot recommend it enough and will definitely be back.

Liked best: Everything! Dream house, beautiful grounds... can I move there permanently?!
Liked least: Dead zone for some mobile carriers, we had to travel 10 minutes out if we needed to get in contact with anyone. No WiFi (dongle didn't help as we only had ipads!) but we bought a WiFi transmitter, recommended if you need internet

“Amazing stay in the Old House”
Reviewed 28 October 2013 for a stay in October 2013

Thanks to Diane and Breda, after a very very long time, we spent a very comfortable and relaxing weekend at the Old House. It definitely exceeded our expectations when we first walked into the house. Everything is brand new, with an excellent sense of modern taste... including furniture kitchen appliances etc. Most importantly, the house was very clean and cosy, exactly as Breda promised us. The scenery and the house surroundings are amazing and the nearby villages are lovely. The local people are friendly and extremely hospitable, making your stay even better. We definitely look forward to visiting the Old House again.

It is also worth mentioning that there was enough space to accommodate all of us 8 people.

Thank you both for providing us with such an unforgettable weekend.

“Perfect Home Away From Home for our Entire Family!”
Reviewed 15 October 2013 for a stay in October 2013

We recently traveled to Ireland with 2 young children ad their grandparents. The Old House was perfect for us to enjoy all that Ireland has to offer. Perfectly located in southern Ireland, made it so easy for day trips to most anywhere. The house itself is so lovely and spacious, we felt like we were at home! It was totally modernized and very clean- had everything that we all needed.
The family was wonderful to work with and provided us everything we needed- and then some! I cant recommend this place enough for anyone traveling to Tipperary!!

“Wonderful Vacation Home”
Reviewed 26 July 2013 for a stay in May 2013

people found this review helpful

We’ve just gotten settled back home and we’re both already missing The Old House and the beautiful country of Ireland. I want to thank you for making things so easy in the planning stages. You understand so well that it’s a big decision to select a home to rent in another country. That said, we felt completely comfortable at every stage and you always responded to emails promptly.

The house itself is even better than it shows in the pictures and we were so comfortable there. We loved getting home from a long day of sightseeing and knowing the Old House would be there. My, (Diane), soaks in the big red claw foot tub after a long day were pure bliss. You and your sister have done an amazing job in renovating the house to have the modern conveniences without losing the wonderful history and character of the house. We’re looking forward to seeing pictures of the home before it was renovated.

The landscaping and natural setting of the house are beautiful and serene. We enjoyed snooping around the other old buildings on the property and on one beautiful evening I just lay on the grass by the stream and listened to the water and the birds. I loved exploring the old cemetery nearby..so peaceful there.

The unexpected bonus was being able to meet you and hear more of the history about the area, your family and the house. You were so much fun and getting to spend the evening with you and your cousin at a hurling match and later at your brother’s pub in Kilkenny was truly a blast for us. Thank you for making us feel a part of your family.

Thank you again for an amazing stay. I know we’ll be back and please know you are always welcome in Arizona.
