I have nothing but great things to say about Grennan's. The main house is beautiful and all rooms are comfortable and clean. The guest houses in the back are also great (with their own living rooms, kitchens, and laundry) and can accommodate 12+ people. Deirdre and Pat, the owners, are very friendly and helpful. If you stay in the main house, Deirdre will make you a traditional irish breakfast that is delicious! Oh, and her home made scones each morning are the best I've ever had. There is also free WiFi that you can access in all rooms. I spent 2 weeks traveling around Ireland and Grennan's was by far the nicest place I stayed at. It is not really walking distance to the town of Tullamore (but you can take a cab for about 10 Euros). Overall, this place is totally worth it and you can have a nice relaxing time out in the country.
