Four bedrooms are all ensuite (Master shower is power shower), and there is a downstairs (electric shower) bathroom.

Owner's reply:
I am inserting a Google Translated document in English as best I can. Thank you so much for your warm and fulsome review. We are delighted that you enjoyed your week in the house. You have given only compliments but you were also fantastic guests, so easy to communicate with and left the house perfect in every way. You are welcome back any time! Only sorry we did not get time to show you some places. Kindest regards Joe and Deirdre Alone the lawn visible on the main picture has dimensions of approx. 25 x 25m. Football, cricket, frisbee and best of all: playing hide and seek ... here children do not necessarily have to live alone with NetFlix (which, incidentally, still exists when the darkness comes). We were 6 full days here and spent 2 days just around the house. A full description is almost impossible, so in a nutshell: Good beds in spacious bedrooms, unbelievable charm in decor and decoration, 2 living rooms with fireplace, good showers, a great Kettcar for the kids, cozy kitchen with permanently fired AGA stove / stove , fantastic terrace (we were lucky for the summer weather and could actually use this for food), around the house great landscaped gardens, entrance to the house about 100 meters long, very stately. You do not need to bring reading material with you: there is a mass of interesting and unusual books. As already written by other users, the pictures do not do justice to the house. The house is not a modern new building and has its corners and edges - due to the sheer size here and there a bit of dust :-) Unfortunately, you can hardly leave the property to walk to town. As so often in Ireland you have only a car width on the streets and the hedges are close to the road. So you need a car for everything. Thurles in 3 minutes reachable, numerous shopping possibilities, food-technically everything from pizza to high class. With Rock of Cashel, Cahir, Glen of Aherlow (awesome hikes), Kilkenny great discovery off the beaten track. Max. Distance to the house about 1 hour by car. We thought: the area is worth it. Very nice landlord - very fast answers - all the best.
