We had a wonderful stay in Clonacody House last night. The house is lovely with magnificent views of the mountains. We had spent the day touring around Co Tipperary and were met with a nice bottle of wine to relax when we arrived. We had a lovely room with ensuite bathroom - you could look at a wonderful sycamore tree as you bathed in the clawfoot bath. Our host, Helen, had kindly driven six miles to get food for us ( we had a wonderful Indian takeaway) which meant that we had been able to enjoy the wine without worrying about driving. There are great restaurants in the area but they are just coming out of Covid-19 restrictions but Helen will inform you.
She suggested that we visit the local museum in Fethard which was a great idea as it is a gem much of it being devoted to horse racing. The village itself is also very interesting with its almost intact walls around the town. We had a fab lunch in Dooks restaurant in Fethard and then went out to Slievnamon to visit a beautiful garden which Helen had arranged for us.
Helen is ably abetted by Maureen in running Clonacody House and the pair of them made us feel very welcome. Breakfast was excellent with fresh berries and the full Irish and lovely breads. I highly recommend staying in Clonacody House.More
