I would love to keep "The Old House" my little secret but that would be unfair on those who have yet to visit! We stayed here during the winter with friends and what a beautiful refuge it is. We arrived on a cold, rainy evening but opened the door to be welcomed by a large open glowing fire, the smell of home cooked brown bread ... it was the perfect venue for a group of expatriate friends to meet up for a reunion. Although this perfectly restored property is 500 years old, and visually stunning from the outside as it is in the middle of the countryside, the interior of the house is 100% modern with all the necessary mod-cons which meant we were able to wine, dine and luxuriate in the surroundings for the weekend. For those of us who craved a little exercise it was possible to enjoy a long undisturbed country walk and even a trot up to the local village for bread, milk and the odd liquid refreshment! The Lanigan family could not have been more helpful and for their penance now will probably be overwhelmed by international guests as my husband (Italian) has declared it the "real Ireland" to all his family, friends and colleagues!
