About Mary Flynn

We have been farming on this property since 1973. We have a large dairy herd and all their followers. The property is situated in the farmyard and there are farming activities taking place throughout the day. Guests are welcome to view the milking cows (children must be accompanied at all times).

In December 2014 we have been awarded the overall award for the most interactive event held during Heritage Week having been runners up in 2013..

Programme 15

We have a great interest in how people lived long ago, how they worked, what they ate, how they played.

Mary Flynn purchased this farmhouse in 2009

Why Mary Flynn chose Feddans

This property is over 200 years old and was refurbished in 2008/09. It belonged to Gerard's Aunt Nell, hence the name Nell's Farm House.

What makes this farmhouse unique

The house is situated on a working dairy farm at the foot of the Comeragh Mountains. The Mountains contain many beautiful lakes and maps are provided for the various walks. The house was renovated to include many modern features such as fitted kitchen, power showers but while still retaining the old features such as shutters on the windows, high ceilings, the open fire.

Irish Farm House

  • 5 of 5

Located in a rural area about 20 minutes from Waterford this working dairy offers unique opportunity to experience farm life. We were able to go into the barn and milking parlor to get an up close view of dairy operations. The accommodations are comfortable and Mary and Gerry are wonderful hosts.

Our group had a wonderful time and recommend it for someone seeking a county experience. If you are put off by the sounds and smells of a farm this is not a place for you.

Was a great experience! The home was clean, very comfortable and perfect location! Mary and Ger went out of their way to assist us and actually took us to a neighbor’s sheep farm as it was my interest! We can’t say enough about what great hosts and place to have made our home for 5 days. Highly recommend and we would stay here again

I would not recommend this house.

  • 1 of 5

We arrived to the house late in the evening. The road down to the house is a very narrow, muddy carriage lane. Parking is in the muddy 10 ft area between the house and the barn where the cows are milked (another words, compacted cow manure). The owners live at the beginning of the lane in a newer home away from the actual dairy farm. I am sure that it was built away from the farm because of the smells. The property itself, described as a luxury home is an old, old, old house that someone has gone in and made upgrades. The problem is that the upgrades were poorly done. The house is not dried in well, so even the toilet paper had moisture in it. There was a huge hole under the toilet showing all of the plumbing going down into the floor. The shower in the twin room has no curtain or area to prevent the shower from getting the rest of the bathroom wet. The spray reached to the commode, no matter how careful you were, so you had to dry the commode off in order to use it. The wifi never worked, so the owner just took it out of the house. We had one role of toilet paper per bathroom among 4 people for 3 nights stay and had to call the owner to request more. We requested clean towels after the 2nd night of use and were required to turn over the towels we had in order to obtain fresh towels, which is not a big deal, but made me feel like the owner was afraid we would steal her towels! The oven would not work, so we asked the owner to help us, but she had no idea how to turn it on either. It was old and outdated. We managed to get it on by playing with the timer button, but we just got lucky. Finally, the house is not more than 10 feet away from the dilapidated barn where the cows are being milked. The house, the beds, everything smelled like cow manure and everything felt damp. I went back and reviewed the photos and they are very deceiving. There was scaffolding on the back patio and yes, the coffee pot was old, not clean and damaged, although it did function. I would highly recommend that you not stay here and find somewhere else to stay. The owners should not be charging people money for staying in this house. As for the review from the folks who turned around and cancelled their vacation after seeing the house, I would have done the same thing, but we were stuck with it in that I could not drive all the way back to Texas.

Owner's Response: Dear Teri. I note your comments. I have reread the description of the property and no where on the ad is the word 'luxurious' mentioned. It states that the property is on a 'working dairy farm' with 'farming activities'. Your statement that the barn is situated 10ft. away from the house is an exaggeration. I will admit that the lane and yard are in need of an upgrade and this has been made worse by 10 months of continuous rain. The house is warm and dry. The shower has no curtain as it is a wet room. I checked the wifi before you arrived and it was working. I removed it to recheck and offered you the use of my own wifi but you declined. I found that is was working perfectly. As you say the cooker was only a matter of taking the automatic button off. I do know how to use the cooker. The coffer maker is working and the it is only a cosmetic defect. I am sorry that you thought I did not trust you. Did you expect me to leave the used towels lying around the house. On arrival all guests are told that if there is a problem to contact us.When you requested more towels and toilet paper I responded within minutes.

Mouse droppings and dead fly!

  • 1 of 5

House was very hard to find and when we arrived we discovered it had mouse droppings on the settees and over the floor and in the drawers. Dead fly in the fridge too and cobweb full of dead flies on living room door. We refused to stay in the property and had to travel home which meant we weren't home until 4am exhausted and the break we were all looking forward to was ruined. I would not recommend this holiday let to anyone and advise people to stay away from it. It was a complete disaster. The owner didn't even contact us the next day to see if we'd got home alright or to apologise.

Owner's Response: Dear Amanda I note your comments. In response I would say that you had full travel instructions provided to you in advance of your journey. It is my normal practice to check the property before guests arrival and I can say without doubt that there was no fly in the fridge. There is a mouse deterrent devise in the property and there was no mouse droppings on the floor or sofa during my checks.
