Guestbook comments from the owner

Had the most wonderful family vacation at Carrigmore Farm. Tina and Tom Cummins were such a joy. The farm was perfect, the perfect location for our daily excurtion's around the beautiful Irish countryside. Tom and Tina were very helpful with their suggestions on destinations and driving directions. We felt right at home with the Cummins. We hope and pray that God will allow us to return to Ireland again someday in the future. We are so thankful for our new Irish friend's.

Of our five stays in beautiful Ireland, Carrigmore Farm was our very favourite.

  • 5 of 5

Greeted by Tom and Tina, and Lucy, with true Irish gusto! Felt immediately at home. Tom introduced us to the farm house, one room at a time, sharing the history of the house with us, and with obvious pride. There's a lot to be proud of! Everything you could possibly imagine wanting or needing - it was all there, and in generous quantities. The space was at once cozy and vast - huge kitchen/dining/sitting room, perfectly sized, efficient kitchen/cooking space, generous bedrooms with really comfy beds, and, our favourite - a huge parlour complete with turf fire, comfy couches, great big wooden games table with plenty of games (if you stay, be sure and play the boardgame, "Discovering Ireland" - brilliant way to get to know the country! and heaps of fun!), and I can't tell you how much fun we had with the vinyl records collection - Just a wonderful, wonderful place to stay. And did I mention it was all immaculate! Trips around the countryside were brilliant, and we interacted with local rural folks at every corner! Our last evening just turned out to be magical; Tom dropped by and we all chatted for hours, Tom sharing history, insight and many fine tales! Thank you so much; I am sure we will be back.

A great place to stay.

  • 5 of 5

While it was a little farther to drive to the places we wanted to visit each day than we expected, it was wonderful to be able to come back to the same place each night. We didn't have to drag all our luggage everywhere and were able to fix breakfast and supper there, helped out by the spices, beverages, and staples left there by our hosts.

It made our trip much more economical.

In addition, it was delightful to have a bedroom for each of us and staying in a house with such history was great fun. We appreciated being able to do our laundry there as well.

I would recommend this place to anyone.

Everything it purported to be on the website.

  • 5 of 5

Just stayed a couple of nights while looking up Family Tree in Cappamore. The cottage was like stepping back in time and reminded me of holidays spent on my Granny's farm in County Derry when a child. Tom has obviously taken a great deal of trouble to authenticate the cottage and its contents and it is a real experience of how Ireland was in the not too distant past. Perfect for US and Canadian visitors. Everything and everywhere spotless and everything we needed for our stay. We all agreed we would like to have stayed longer but hope to return again next year.

The people in Doon and Cappamore villages could not have been more helpful and welcoming. Keep up the good work Tom - it really makes a difference.

A beautiful property and a cozy home. We stayed for a week and loved every minute. Tom and his wife are wonderful hosts and gave us plenty of helpful ideas to plan our days! Overall, it was a delightful experience.

Cozy property, extraordinary hosts.

  • 5 of 5

Carrigmore Farm is in a fab location in the beautiful Tipperary countryside, but the best thing about it is it's hosts. Tom & Tina are lovely and charming; genuinely good people who gave us such a warm and enthusiastic welcome. We really enjoyed our visits with them, and their recommendations for what to see in the area were really appreciated. Oh - and, as they say, if Thomas Cummins invites you to go to music night, YOU GO!

Tipperary region

Tipperary is situated in the south of the Country and extends from the border of Galway and the Midlands to just short of the south coast. The largest inland County in the Country. Tipperary is a scenic County, fashioned by the Galtee Mountains, the River Suir, & a rich lush green landscape. Angling, Golf, mountain walking and caves are all to hand and there's the Rock of Cashel, countless abbeys, castles,and forts to explore, experience and enjoy.

You can also spend your days visiting historic castles and abbeys in Co.Tipperary, such as the Rock of Cashel, Athassel Abbey, Cahir Castle, and the Swiss Cottage,

For those more interested in land based beauty the valley of the Glen of Aherlow lies between the Galtee Mountains and the wooded ridge of Slievenamuck. Historically an important pass between Limerick and Tipperary, and an notorious hideout for outlaws, Slievnamuck now offers perfect opportunities for horse riding, hiking, cycling and fishing.

If fishing is your sport, close by you have the Mulcair river, which flows into the Shannon. The Mulcair provides a varity of all types of fish, so there's something there for everyone. For walking or hiking in the Limerick area, try the Slieve Felim Way. This is a 36km, linear walking route, which starts in Murroe and runs through the foothills of Slieve Felim, Keeper hill and the Silvermines mountains. Alternatively, you could try the Multeen Way, which starts in Tipperary Town and is signposted towards Donohill, through sceinic vales, to Cappawhite and then upwards to the Red Hill - for more information try Walking Routes Ireland or Multeen Tourism.

By night enjoy a Traditional Irish Music evening in Brou Brou Centre in Cashel. On Friday night's you will find a Trad Music night in the Kickham Lounge in Tipp town, or a Hooley in Jim O the Mill's each Thursday night in Upperchurch.

Don' t forget that it does rain in Ireland! So for those wet days, take your Kids to Tons of Fun, Eastway Business Park, Tipperary Road in Limerick. For all types of fun and games! For swimming, try Canon Hayes Recreation Centre in Tipperary Town.
