The Thomas is one of three beautiful apartments on the former stable grounds of an active dairy farm. The apartments combine charming traditional style with modern conveniences and thoughtful details. Padraig, along with Thomas, share the main building.
The Thomas overlooks the common courtyard. One enters into the large open living room that offers plush leather couches, a fireplace, and a TV with CNN. The attached kitchen area has all of the tools necessary to create a delightful Irish meal, including a dishwasher, 4-burner electric stove, oven, and microwave. One bedroom is off of the kitchen on the ground floor, while the other two bedrooms are upstairs. All bedrooms have en suite bathrooms.
Each cottage has its own private patio and garden area with seating so you can enjoy eating outside. The common front garden includes a yard and play area for children, along with a hen house, where guests can collect fresh eggs in the morning. Farm operations are separate from the guest quarters, but the farm's friendly hosts, Anne and Patrick, are willing to show guests their dairy operations on request. Their warm hospitality adds much to the experience of staying on the farm.
The three cottages, with a total of eight bedrooms, are perfect for a large group wanting to explore the jewels of Ireland's southwest together.
