Your cottage is close to the owners, so you have instant access should you have any enquiries , or if you are looking for hot tips on places to visit , stories and legends from the area, etc !

There is an authentic old Fairy Fort on the farm, and an ancient 'Swearing Stone', on which it's said Oisin lay his hand, on his return to the Land of Erin , after he had spent 400 years in Tir na nOg ( Land of Youth ) If you stand in the centre of the fairy fort and close your eyes, and listen with a loving peaceful heart, then you will hear the ceoil ( music ) of the Fairies.

We like to preserve nature and do our bit to help biodiversity. We don't use any chemicals or sprays on the land and allow patches of ground to grow as they like, making it a haven for wildlife. If the beautiful sound of birdsong annoys you, maybe you should look elsewhere. Likewise, if you are seeking acres of manicured gardens, then this is not the place for you. If you want to enjoy nature at its finest, with glorious hedgerows harbouring multitudes of life and natural meadows with mixed grasses and wildflowers providing sustenance to pollinators, then you are most welcome to share this special place for your visit. Guests sometimes come, planning to use it as a base to travel around but more often than not are happy to just enjoy the peace and tranquility of the countryside and explore the walks around the farm.

That's not to say however that you shouldn't venture further afield. We are blessed to be located in a central location in Co. Tipperary and indeed Ireland also. There are plenty of wonderful castles, heritage sites and scenic locations all within a short drive from the farm. For going out there are some amazing restaurants and great pubs with live music. If you are here on a Thursday night you might get the chance to visit the legendary traditional Irish music session pub 'Jim o' The Mills' which only opens on a Thursday night!

The Cottages are situated on a farm about 1 mile from the village of Borrisoleigh. Here you may buy petrol, hardware, food and drink. There are also restaurant and Fast Food outlets. You can buy fresh vegetables on Friday mornings in the 'Square', in front of the beautiful Parish church. There is a garage, 3 grocery shops, 3 pubs and 3 Filling Stations. There is also a 24 hour self serve washing machine and dryer in the village. Bus service serves Borrisoleigh as it's on the main Thurles to Nenagh R498.

Here you will get a flavour of Irish hospitality and friendliness at its best ! There are loads of testimonials from all over the world, which verify the wonderful experience holidaymakers have had here in this part of traditional Ireland. There are sheep, ponies, chickens, pet rabbits etc on the farm.
