"Cozy Irish Farm Home With Traditional Music Bonus"

I think we have been adopted by newfound Irish relations and moved into their extra house on the farm! Plenty of room, a cheery fire to warm our bones, as well as electic heat(and a real electric clothes dryer!)for girls who are used to Georgia.  Thanks, Tom, Tina, and Robert for sharing your farm, and making us feel right at home! We especially enjoyed meeting your friends who played Irish Music with us! We slept like lambs, in our quiet, cozy beds, and enjoyed full days of local sightseeing within easy driving distance. Cork, the Rock of Cashel, the swans on the River Shannon at Castleconnell, and the amazing Cliffs of Moher(the boat ride was the best view)with the live music in the pub there as well. We are already homesick for Ireland!

"Wonderful country home with amazing views!"

Our group of 5 was welcomed by our wonderful host, Tom, within minutes of our arrival. The house was warm and cozy with the most comfortable beds and everything you could ever need for your stay. Tom gave us wonderful tips on where to go, directions, places to eat, history lessons, and even took us on a hike to the most beautiful view in the area. Carrigmore Farm was located pretty central to all of the regular tourist sites and very close to great little finds (especially when you get lost on the back roads). Rock of Cashel, Lough Gur, Bunratty Castle and Folk Park were just a few places that were a very quick drive away! Thank you for such a wonderful trip and place to stay!

"Enjoy the comforts of home on vacation"

Perfect family vacation home. Tom & Tina make you feel like part of the family and offer great information on what to see and do locally and otherwise. They are warm and friendly and just made our stay that much more enjoyable. The weather was great, the house had everything we needed and we were able to relax and take in the beauty of the Irish countryside.

"Nicest hospitality ever"

The property has anything you need : crockery, cutlery, books, boardgames, TV, DVD, wi-fi, wood for the fireplace ... But above all, there isTom, the owner. Tom is an extremely honest person and you can be sure that he will do anything possible to make your stay perfect. The house is old and this provides an extra of warmth and quietness. The property is ideal if you want to get around the region by car and later have a nice place to relax and spend a quality time with your family.

"Authentic Rural Ireland Experience"

Tom and Tina Cummins are some of the most friendly and warm people we met on our tour through Europe. Tom was very willing to give us a full tour through the surrounding countryside and even to the venerable pub Annie Moore's in the nearby town of Doon. The house itself was a beautiful thing to behold, the original farmhouse on the property with a nice set of 21st century upgrades that don't take away from the feel of the place. The farm itself is still in operation, and Tom is always willing to have a guest accompany him on his daily rounds if they wish. All-in-all we were very blessed to have been directed to Mr. and Mrs. Cummins and their excellent accommodations.
