Wow! One runs out of words to describe the beautiful setting, gracious hosts, comfortable accommodations, superb breakfasts, and overall, fantastic experience that is staying at the Lawcus Farmhouse! We and our friends throughly enjoyed our two-night visit to this country paradise! Suffice it to say that I couldn’t imagine any place in the entire country to be as charming as this one! Marie makes the best breakfasts I’ve ever eaten in Ireland. Mark loves talking about the area and showing guests the exquisite home he built with his own hands from reclaimed materials. Their hospitality was truly welcoming and caring! We LOVED this place and you will too!

Ann Marie and Mark were so welcoming ! The farm is lovely, and our room was beautiful and very confortable. The children enjoyed feeding the animals, and swinging in the trees! Breakfasts were very good (best Irish breakfast and pancakes ever! and the only porridge I liked in my whole life) Thank you so much for those 2 days and all your good advice! It was kind of a magical time ! We shall come back ! Isabelle ("the chicken girl"!), Matthieu, Nina and Salomé

We only stayed here one night, but if ever we return to Ireland, we'd gladly stay here a whole week! The hosts are wonderful; full of interesting stories and plentiful suggestions of what to do in the area. We took several of their suggestions and none of them disappointed! The property itself is amazing; we loved the beautiful old house and the grounds with all the animals was lovely. Our weather wasn't great so it's a shame we didn't get to lounge on our balcony. There are many options of things to do close to the property. Our room was comfy and large. Highly recommended.

Our Rick Steves consultant recommended this unique place and I’m so glad he did! After touring for a week and a half, this was just the refreshing break we needed. Hosts Ann Marie and Mark were so easy to work with and provided us a lovely treehouse accommodation. Wonderful! We walked into Stoneyford both nights to a welcoming local pub and just really enjoyed the area. Bountiful and fresh breakfasts by talented Ann Marie were so delicious. It really did feel like we were in the home of friends. Mark’s talent lies in repurposing and building incredible spaces. And who could not enjoy all the adorable farm animals, especially doggies Peggy and Bruce and the horses. I definitely recommend this place and give the treehouse a go! So peaceful.

Lovely accomodations and fabulous hosts. Couldn't have been a better intro to Ireland.Set on farmland with a stream, horses, donkeys, chickens, ducks, et al., it's still walking distance to the village pub, but our wonderful host even offered to run us in. Breakfasts were wonderful, too.

Great place to stay with wonderful hosts, hearty breakfast options and beautiful grounds. One night was not enough. Close to Kilkenny to go shopping, visit Kilkenny Castle, hear some local Irish bands and enjoy some world class restaurants. We hope to make it back. Annmarie and Mark are wonderful hosts. Siante! All the beste, Gary & Kate (Connecticut)

Spent a night with my brother and his family at Lawcus Farm Guest House and it was spectacular. What a gem of Ireland, Lawcus Farm is. Ann Marie and Mark are unbelievable hosts and charming people. Be sure to ask Mark for the story of how he and Ann Marie built Lawcus Farm and be prepare to be in awe at their skills and vision. Don’t pass through Kilkenny without spending a few days. I wish I would have had more time and will be sure to return.

The Hosts Ann -Marie and Mark are excellent, kind and super friendly. We have stayed in many places and this has to be one of the best places, very clean, and reasonably priced. It is truly a labour of love done throughout the property. Thank you for our stay and the honey. We will definitely be back.

There are some magical places on this earth, and the Lawcus Farm Guesthouse outside Kilkenny is one of them. The hosts, Ann Marie and Mark are so wonderfully welcoming, and the grounds are incredible. The Kings River, the bridges and ponds, the many animals, the rooms and house itself. Wow. Ann Marie made us amazing breakfasts in the most amazing kitchen, Mark took the kids to feed the animals, Alma got to ride Echo, the horse. It is clearly a labor of love, and we were so lucky to get to experience it. We will be back, and say that staying here would be worth a trip to Ireland alone.

We (three adults and three kids 8-12) came straight to Lawcus Farm from a red-eye flight into Dublin. We were looking for a short drive and a night/day to get acclimated before heading off to Dingle and the Cliffs of Moher. I wish we had more time, it was so peaceful with plenty to do and see in the immediate area! Mark and Anne Marie were amazing hosts and were especially great to the kids who loved the animals, Ann Marie's breakfast, and Mark's stories. Thank you both!
